Calling all Married at First Sight fans!
PEOPLE can exclusively reveal the Lifetime matchmaking series will officially return with expanded 90-minute episodes for its “Sweet 16” season, premiering on Jan. 4.
The 23-episode season will feature 10 Nashville-based singles — Airris, Jasmine, Christopher, Nicole, Clint, Gina, Mackinley, Domynique, Shaquille and Kirsten — who are ready to find their forever loves.
As MAFS fans know, the series follows each couple as they tie the knot, head out on a honeymoon and move in together. At the end of the season, the couples will have to make a decision about whether they want to remain married or get a divorce.
However, this season includes “more romance and intense stakes” as well as a “shocking twist” when one woman’s husband “makes an indecent proposal” to another man’s wife, according to the network.
The singles will receive guidance from returning guest experts DeVon Franklin, a New York Times bestselling author and relationship advisor, and Dr. Pia Holec, a renowned psychotherapist who specializes in sex and couples therapy, as well as Pastor Cal and Dr. Pepper.
This season will also feature three additional episodes titled “Beyond Decision Day,” where cameras will document the aftermath of Decision Day, and what happens when the experiment ends and real life begins.
