(Los Angeles, CA) - TLC's hit docu-series, 90 DAY FIANCÉ returns with more incredible twists and dramatic turns than ever before. The new crop of American born suitors and their foreign lovers have 90 days to meet the family, book a venue and say their vows to live happily ever after with their foreign born lovers... or not. Using a special K-1 "fiancé" visa, the couples are required to get married within 90 days - or else be forced to return to their home countries. The new season starts Sunday, September 11 at 9/8c, followed by the new spinoff series 90 DAY FIANCÉ: HAPPILY EVER AFTER? at 10/9c. There will also be a special premiere of 90 DAY FIANCÉ on Monday, August 22 at 8/7c, before the series debut of the network's first scripted series, Tyler Perry's TOO CLOSE TO HOME.
All-new episodes feature five engaged couples with outrageous love stories, including a Moroccan man engaged to an American woman that he's never met face-to-face, a man with three failed marriages and a man who had previously catfished his American lover.
Following the season premiere of 90 DAY FIANCÉ, the new spinoff series 90 DAY FIANCÉ: HAPPILY EVER AFTER? revisits the most memorable couples from previous seasons. The frenzied countdown to the altar may be behind them, but the real drama has just begun to unfold. Returning couples will include Danielle and Mohamed, who faced critics at home and on social media; Melanie and Devar, who encountered doubts within her family and throughout her community; Loren and Alexei, whose young love is fiery but continues to encounter challenges; Kyle and Noon, who are looking to see if their journey will take them away from his beloved New Orleans; Russ and Paola, who fear their lives are going in different directions, and Brett and Daya, as she discovers that his family issues run deeper than she'd thought, all while they struggle with getting pregnant.
The new season of 90 DAY FIANCÉ will follow new couples on their journeys towards the altar, including:
Nicole (Bradenton, Florida) and Azan (from Morocco)
Nicole, 21, and Azan, 23, met through a messenger app but have never met in person. Nicole has a 20 month-old daughter and has never traveled outside of America. Nicole's family is nervous for her to travel alone, and skeptical of Azan's intentions as they think he is using her for a green card.
Narkyia (Camp Hill, Pennsylvania) and Olulowo "Lowo" (from Nigeria, living in Vietnam)
Narkyia, 36, and Lowo, 28, met on a Facebook group called 'Beautiful Big Women,' when Lowo privately messaged Narkyia. Lowo tried catfishing Narkyia by pretending to live in Alabama, along with other far-reaching lies. Narkyia fears that she can't fully trust him.
Matt (Williamstown, Kentucky) and Alla (from Ukraine)
Matt, 42, and Alla, 30, met on an international dating site. Matt, married and divorced 3 times, had traveled to Ukraine looking for love. There he found Alla but bringing her to America also means bringing her 7 year old son.
Jorge (Los Angeles, California) and Anfisa (from Moscow, Russia)
Jorge, 25, and Anfisa, 20, met when Jorge stumbled on Anfisa's Facebook page and began courting her. Soon he was taking her on expensive trips across Europe. Now he plans to show Anfisa a life of luxury in America where he hopes she will fit in with his large family, which includes protective older sisters.
Chantel (Atlanta, Georgia) and Pedro (from Dominican Republic)
Chantel, 25, and Pedro, 24, met when Chantel's former Spanish teacher pointed her to Pedro's Facebook page so she could learn Spanish faster. Chantel has hidden the truth about her relationship with Pedro from her family. They think he is entering the US on a student visa and have no idea that Pedro has only 90 days to marry Chantel or leave the country.
