Lifetime’s break-out docuseries “Married at First Sight,” where six brave singles marry a complete stranger in a daring social experiment, returns for its sixth season Tuesday, January 2 at 9 PM ET/PT. This time, Boston area singles become duos, meeting for the first time at the altar. “Married at First Sight”: Matchmaking Special will debut before the season six premiere at 8PM ET/PT.
In season six of “Married at First Sight,” Boston area singles yearning for a life-long partnership agree to a provocative proposal: getting legally married to a stranger the moment they first meet. 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. The series captures each couple’s journey as they go from wedding, to honeymoon, to early nesting, to the daily struggles of working on their marriage. After several weeks together, each couple must make a decision: do they remain together or decide to divorce?
This season, Boston-based psychologist and Professor Dr. Jessica Griffin, joins sociologist Dr. Pepper Schwartz and marriage counselor, Pastor Calvin Roberson on the series’ panel of experts. Together they will create what they believe are three compatible couples based on scientific matchmaking and continue to counsel and mentor the couples throughout the season.
“Married at First Sight” is produced for Lifetime by Kinetic Content. Executive producers for the series are Chris Coelen, Eric Detwiler, Sam Dean, Robyn Schnieders and Ally Simpson from Kinetic Content and Gena McCarthy for Lifetime.
