“Married at First Sight” is an extreme social experiment following six brave singles who agree to getting legally married the moment they first meet. Four specialists will create what they believe are three perfect couples, based on scientific matchmaking. Each episode follows the newlyweds from the honeymoon to early nesting to other relatable events of married life. After several weeks together, each couple must make a decision: do they remain together or decide to separate?
FYI announced today that Married at First Sight has been renewed for a fifth season. The docu-series has been a solid performer for the A&E Networks-owned channel since its 2014 premiere, currently ranking as its top-rated series across all platforms.
Married at First Sight, as the title suggests, uses an unconventional method of pairing up singles looking for a life-long partnership. Relationship experts match up the candidates, who agree to get legally married upon first meeting each other. After several weeks of being newlyweds, the couple then decides to either stay together or get divorced.
Season 5 has already begun production, this time in Chicago, Illinois, for a premiere in 2017.
