Married at First Sight, Lifetime’s popular reality series featuring couples who meet at the altar, premieres Wednesday, January 1, 2020 at 8 p.m. EST. Season 10 features five new couples – Katie and Derek, Jessica and Austin, Taylor and Brandon, Mindy and Zach, and Meka and Michael – and promises even more drama, tears and love than ever before.
The experimental reality series follows several couples who have never seen each other, spoken to one another, or met in person prior to saying their vows. The show then follows the ups and downs of the newlyweds as they navigate married life with their new, “stranger” spouses.
Here’s what you need to know about the highly-anticipated 10th season of MAFS, including the title and synopsis of each episode and the schedule for the new season:
New Episodes Air Wednesday Nights at 8 p.m. EST on Lifetime
There will likely be between 12 and 16 episodes for Season 10, as Season 9 featured 14 and Season 8 featured 16. There doesn’t appear to be any specific scheduled number of episodes for any of the seasons, since Season 6 and 7 had a whopping 17 episodes, so the network changes the episode count each year.
