Love After Lockup viewers are in for a treat as Lizzie Kommes, Tracie Wagaman, and more will return in a WE TV spinoff series. Love After Lockup was the fastest-growing reality series of 2018. The second season recently wrapped. With that in mind, most LAL watchers have been turning to Instagram and other social media platforms for real-time updates on their favorite cast members. What’s the latest on this new show?
Love After Lockup: Lizzie Kommes and Tracie Wagaman to Return
Deadline was the first to break the Love After Lockup news. LAL watchers know that the upcoming third season of the show features an all-new cast. Even so, there are numerous fan-favorites from the first two season – including Tracie Wagaman and Lizzie Kommes.
Sharp Entertainment certainly looks to be cashing in on the same formula they’ve used for 90 Day Fiance. That franchise has a plethora of spinoffs to choose from and fans seemingly can’t get enough. The LAL series is called Love After Lockup: Life After Lockup. It will feature fan-favorites from past seasons. Viewers can also look forward to current updates from those favorites.
Love After Lockup Hints Dropped
Love After Lockup watchers have been wondering since the second season ended when new updates would come. Tracie Wagaman hinted weeks ago on Facebook that she and Clint Brady would film a Where Are They Now? special. In addition, Tracie Wagaman and Clint have been in Hollywood – and they’re not alone. Fellow cast members Brittany and husband Marcelino Santiago are also in Tinseltown.
Love After Lockup fans suspected that the cast got together to film a reunion show or some other special. It was suggested on IG that the cast are in Hollywood for a promotional photoshoot. Weeks ago, Lizzie Kommes updated her IG with a snap in front of WE TV cameras. Perhaps the cast is in California to promote this newly-announced spinoff show.
When Does Life After Lockup Premiere?
Deadline says that the Love After Lockup series will premiere sometime in June of 2019. Added to this, WE TV ordered eight episodes. This seems to be right in line with what most networks order for spinoff shows from popular franchises.
Interestingly, the end of Love After Lockup Season 2 featured the inmates just barely getting out. The new series will offer a peek into their post-prison lives as they truly adjust to life on the outside. From taking care of their kids to finding work, there will certainly be a lot for viewers to sink their teeth into. There’s also the breakup between Scott Davey and Lizzie Kommes that played out on social media. Will viewers get to see more on this in future episodes?
In addition to Clint Brady, Tracie Wagaman, Lizzie Kommes, and Scott Davey, the upcoming series also brings back Andrea and Lamar, Brittany and Marcelino Santiago, and Sarah and Michael Simmons. There’s certainly going to be a lot to unpack with these cast members in just eight one-hour episodes.
It’s certainly possible that more episodes could be in the works depending on how this upcoming series performs. In the meantime, Love After Lockup followers will certainly want to stay tuned for an official premiere date.
