Hot on the heels of the most-watched season ever of Married at First Sight USA, the award-winning hit series heads to Texas for Season 13, premiering with a three-hour episode on July 21 at 8pm ET/PT on US network Lifetime. This season will also feature the show’s first Asian-American couple who celebrate their marriage with a traditional Vietnamese tea ceremony.

Each week will feature two-hour episodes and capture each couple’s emotional journey as they go from wedding to honeymoon, early nesting and eventually dealing with the daily struggles of working on their marriage. After several weeks together, each couple must make a decision: do they remain together and live happily ever after, or decide to divorce and go their separate ways?

The Season 13 Matchmaking Special debuted on July 7 at 8pm ET/PT, providing an in-depth exploration of the matchmaking process as many hopeful singles put their hearts on the line in order to find love. The following week on July 14 at 8pm ET/PT, Lifetime debuted the Kickoff Special where Kevin Frazier hosts a panel of insider experts, for an exclusive first look at the epic upcoming season. The all-access, behind-the-scenes special takes a closer look at each of the five couples about to be married with never-before-seen moments from the selection process and previously unreleased secrets from the Married at First Sight experts.
