The twelvth season of Married at First Sight launched on Lifetime in the US on Wednesday, January 13 with a three hour episode at 8pm ET/PT.

Season 12 is set to be the most romantic, diverse, and surprising season yet as ten brave but loveless singles meet their new spouse at the altar and enter a legally binding marriage at first sight. With one groom pushing forty and another who has been divorced (both Married at First Sight firsts), new insights are brought to a journey that is always full of high stakes. While some marriages will survive, one couple confronts a bombshell that no one saw coming. As the season continues, 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 for a happily ever after, or decide to divorce and go their separate ways?

Married at First Sight is produced by Kinetic Content, with executive producers Chris Coelen, Eric Detwiler, Ally Simpson, Montre Burton and Toni Gallagher from Kinetic Content, and Gena McCarthy from Lifetime. The hit reality format has been a huge, channel-defining brand for network, who in 2020 renewed it through to season 17.

The Married at First Sight format is created and produced by Snowman Productions in Denmark for DR3/DR1, and is distributed by Red Arrow Studios International, with local productions in 30 territories worldwide.
