Married at First Sight gears up for an all-new spinoff series called Unmatchables. This is all part of a massive order by Lifetime to ensure viewers have more MAFS episodes for at least the next few years. What do we know so far about the new spinoff?
Married at First Sight: Huge Order from Lifetime
Before Married at First Sight aired on Lifetime, it was on the FYI network. But, Lifetime quickly picked up the show. And, based on the latest orders, there will be MAFS content for a long time because of spinoffs like Unmatchables. This is certainly good news for viewers.
Turns out, there will be at least six more seasons of Married at First Sight. And, with the season in New Orleans underway, that’s a lot of content to look forward to. With everything Lifetime recently green-lit, that’s at least 400 hours coming out.
Married at First Sight: Unmatchables Coming
In addition to the renewed Married at First Sight seasons, one of the two new spinoffs coming is Unmatchables. At first, many viewers thought the show would bring back rotten apple cast members to give them another shot at love – almost like a MAFS villains edition. But, that doesn’t seem to be the case.
The eight-episode order features love hopefuls the Married at First Sight experts didn’t select to appear on the main franchise. Each new Unmatchables episode features new people hoping to find love. But, for one reason or another, they were too hard to match. So, it’ll certainly be interesting to see who films for this spinoff – and why the experts passed on them.
As an added bonus, each of these Unmatchables have Married at First Sight stars pastor Calvin Roberson and Dr Viviana Coles to help them out. And, the experts give them dating advice – as well as a lifestyle revamp. And, by the end of each episode, each pair go on a date and see if they can put everything they learn to use.
Married at First Sight watchers are used to following three to five couples over the course of an extended season. But, Unmatchables certainly looks like a shorter version of the MAFS process. Meanwhile, new faces in every episode means viewers aren’t stuck with the same couples for an entire season. So, this could be ideal for viewers not wanting to invest in particular couples for weeks.
MAFS Not Slowing Down
The Married at First Sight franchise saw a considerable boost since Lifetime took the reins. And, with six more seasons and two spinoffs on the way, there’s no sign of losing momentum for the foreseeable future. Going from three to five couples was a considerable jump. And, more couples means longer episodes as well. But, at least so far, this change in format definitely seems to pay off.
So far, there isn’t a premiere date for the Unmatchables spinoff. But, with the New Orleans season and Couples’ Cam still on the air, that’s more than enough to keep viewers tuning in until a release date is officially confirmed.
