On tap for this week’s Renewed and Returning are new seasons of series for Lifetime, Spike and BBC2.
A new season of Lifetime’s docuseries Married at First Sight will make its debut on Jan. 2 at 9 p.m ET/PT.
In the sixth season of this Kinetic Content-produced series, six Boston-area singles looking for love agree to legally marrying a stranger the moment they first meet. The series aims to capture each couple’s journey as they go from wedding, to honeymoom, to early nesting and the daily struggles of working on their marriage. In this season, Boston-based psychologist and professor Dr. Jessica Griffin joins Dr. Pepper Schwartz and marriage counselor, Pastor Calvin Roberson on the series’ panel of experts.
Little Women: Atlanta and Little Women: Terra’s Big House also return to Lifetime next month.
In the latest season of Atlanta, Ms. Juicy, Minnie, Monie, Amanda, Andrea, Tanya and Samantha continue to face the challenges of living in an average-sized world. With the obstacles that come along with pregnancy, weight-loss journeys, and professional ambitions, some of the girls’ friendships are put to the true test.
In Terra’s Big House, Little Women: LA‘s Terra Jole and her husband Joe face the trials and tribulations that can come with being a new homeowner. The pair struggle to balance home renovations along with taking care of their two small children.
Both series are produced by Kinetic Content. Little Women: Atlanta premieres on Dec. 13 at 9 p.m. ET/PT, followed by Little Women: Terra’s Big House at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
Elsewhere,tattoo-competition series Ink Master: Angels has been renewed for a second season by Paramount Network.
