The fan favorite returns to see if a diamond is truly forever on Sunday, June 25th at 8/7c
Los Angeles - The second season of 90 DAY FIANCÉ: HAPPILY EVER AFTER? returns with five couples from previous seasons of the original series who gave up everything for a shot at love and the American dream. The couples had 90 days to marry their foreign-born fiancé or return home. Having navigated through the K-1 "fiancé visa" process, the couples are now married, but quickly realize that the honeymoon is over as real life sets in.
Life after 90 Days continues for Danielle & Mohamed, Loren & Alexei, Russ & Paola, Jorge & Anfisa and Chantel & Pedro as they each have a quick dose of reality and drama unfolds when married life in America doesn't quite live up to their expectations. In addition to the usual ups and downs of being newly married, the couples are forced to deal with major cultural differences, stress from financial difficulties and disapproving family members.
