“Married at First Sight” season 3 will premiere in December

It’s one of the craziest new docuseries on television and FYI is bringing back all the drama for a whole new season. It was confirmed today that “Married at First Sight” will return for a third-season and it’s premiering sooner than you might have thought.

Thirteen episodes will premiere on Tuesday, December 1 at 9pm ET on FYI, beginning with a two-hour/15 minute season opener. One-hour/15 minute episodes will follow Tuesday’s at 9pm ET thereafter, culminating with a two-hour/15 minute series finale.

“Married at First Sight” is an extreme social experiment that follows six brave singles yearning for a life-long partnership as they agree to a provocative proposal: getting legally married to a complete stranger the moment they first meet. In season three, all six singles have been selected from the Atlanta, Georgia area. Previous seasons followed couples from the New York area.

Four specialists – sexologist, Dr. Logan Levkoff; psychologist, Dr. Joseph Cilona; sociologist, Dr. Pepper Schwartz; and spiritual advisor, Greg Epstein – create what they believe are three ideally matched couples, based on scientific matchmaking. The couples will not meet until they walk down the aisle and see each other face-to-face, for the first time, at the altar.

Over the course of several weeks, episodes capture each couple’s journey as they go from wedding, to honeymoon, to early nesting, to the daily struggle of working on their marriage. After several weeks together, each couple must make a decision: do they remain together or decide to divorce?

“Married at First Sight” is produced for FYI by Kinetic Content. Chris Coelen and Sam Dean are executive producers for Kinetic Content. Executive producers for FYI are Gena McCarthy and Liz Fine.
