'Married at First Sight' Season 11: What to Expect
Season 10 of Married at First Sight ended on April 22, 2020 with the reunion show after the five Washington, DC couples got married five months ago. The two-hour episode, hosted by Entertainment Today Kevin Frazier, was packed with surprising and shocking news.
Many fans on social media said Season 10 was one of the worse seasons yet. Now that it is in the rearview mirror, let's discuss what we know about the upcoming season.
Possible Release Date
Lifetime typically airs two seasons each year. One usually begins airing at the beginning of the year and the second one airs in June. The eleventh season was initially scheduled to premiere in June 2020. Because of the coronavirus pandemic, production was halted, but the series had completed a lot of its work by then. Applications and cast interviews took place in late November 2019.
The same three experts, Dr. Pepper Schwartz, Pastor Calvin Roberson, and Dr. Viviana Coles will reprise their roles for Season 11. They have already matched ten strangers based on their answers on various questionnaires.
Filming started last February around Valentine's Day. The five couples have already married, had their receptions, and traveled to Mexico on their honeymoons.
Lifetime would be using a similar schedule if the filming had not been halted because of COVID-19. No release date has been revealed yet, but it is unlikely that Season 11 will premiere in June. It is possible that it will air before the end of the year. When the series returns, it will consist of 17 two-hour episodes.
Season 11 Will Be One of the Craziest Seasons
According to producers of Married at First Sight, it appears that the series will not be significantly impacted by the coronavirus pandemic. Of course, there will be some changes. The series will be delayed, but the show will go on.
The Lifetime series will take place in New Orleans and will feature five new couples. It has been advertised to be one of the craziest seasons ever and the most dramatic seasons of the series.
An Alterative to Filming as Usual
According to The Cinemaholic, filming for the new season was put on hold for the second half of the season. However, there is an alternative to regular filming. The production crew has set up cameras in the apartments of the couples for the remaining few episodes. They will be able to record their activities themselves from home.
The promotions that aired during the Decision Day of Season 10 showed some interesting things about the cast of Season 11. For instance, one bride rode a unicycle down the aisle to meet her husband. One groom might have already met his wife before applying for the show.
