Lifetime in the US has announced that Critic’s Choice Award-winning hit series Married at First Sight, produced by Kinetic Content, will return to screens for Season 14 on January 5, 2022, at 8p/7c, premiering with a three-hour episode.

Twelve couples are still together and nine children have already been born from the relationships created on the hit show. The new season will once again take on love in Boston, where season six fan favorites, Shawniece and Jephte, met and married! Season 14 is destined to be romantic, surprising and wickedly entertaining as ten brave singles meet their stranger spouses at the altar and enter into a marriage without ever meeting before. With experts Pastor Cal, Dr Pepper and Dr Viviana Coles at the helm of this dynamic social experiment, the couples will have access to professional guidance, as well as the support of one another along the way – even if the support they are given, comes in the form of some tough love.

The Season 14 Matchmaking Special will debut December 29 at 8p/7c, 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 night, December 30 at 8p/7c, Lifetime debuts 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.

Each new two-hour episode will capture each couple’s emotional journey as they go from wedding to honeymoon, to early nesting and navigating the daily struggles that come with a new marriage. The newly matched couples will also get the opportunity to meet and share the good, the bad and the ugly about their unique unions. After the eight-week experiment comes to an end, each couple will make the biggest decision of their lives: to stay married or get a divorce.

Married At First Sight is produced by Kinetic Content. Executive producers for Married at First Sight are Chris Coelen, Eric Detwiler, Montré Burton, Toni Gallagher and Erica Kessler from Kinetic Content and Amy Winter and Cat Rodriguez from Lifetime.
