The Hollywood Reporter has learned that just a month into its first season, FYI’s original series Married at First Sight is being renewed for a second season.
Married at First Sight is airing its fifth episode on Tuesday, making this renewal a quick decision by FYI, and probably a smart one. The show’s timeslot’s viewership among 18-49 year olds has improved by 122% since its premiere. The new season will cover three more newly met newly weds over the course of a few weeks as they get to know each other through marriage.
“Married at First Sight has truly captured viewers’ attention and garnered awareness for FYI following our successful rebrand,” said FYI and LMN presidentJana Bennett. “The series reflects the authentic, relatable and universal journey – our search for true love. The quest will continue anew next year.”
