What to Expect on Lifetime

Longtime Married at First Sight watchers may think they know what to expect from the long-running franchise. But this Atlanta season features a few firsts for the show. One groom is “pushing forty” this time around. And another new cast member is a divorcee. So, these are two curveballs before things get underway.

Meanwhile, Married at First Sight spoilers say one couple comes face to face with a “bombshell” that neither sees coming. Moreover, even though the faces are new, viewers can expect much of the same drama that comes with every fresh crop of stars.

Each Married at First Sight episode in the ATL is two hours long. So, that’s plenty of time to get to know the couples as they navigate this modern take on the concept of arranged marriage. Which couples make it and which couples call it quits is always a big topic heading into a new season. And watchers can see how these couples navigate the marriage process when new episodes premiere – January 13 at 8 pm on the Lifetime network.
