Discovery-owned lifestyle pay-TV channel TLC is set to premiere 90 Day Fiancé spin-off The Family Chantel in July.

The new series sees 90 Day Fiancé fan favorites Chantel (pictured, left) and Pedro (right) and their in-laws working on their relationships after a drama-filled first encounter in 90 Day Fiancé.

The spin-off is produced by Sharp Entertainment for TLC.

“This is an awesome moment for TLC, as we create a family show based on one of our most popular 90 Day couples, and on a whole new night,” said TLC president and GM Howard Lee in a statement. “Our fans can’t get enough of Pedro, Chantel and their larger-than-life families. For a brand known as the destination for love, relationships and family shows, The Family Chantel hits the bullseye.”

The Family Chantel will premiere in July and air Mondays on TLC.

TLC will also air a special recap episode featuring Chantel and Pedro’s most unforgettable moments from 90 Day Fiancé. Titled Pedro & Chantel: The Full Story, the one-off airs April 15 at 8 p.m. ET/PT, with an early premiere on TLC GO on April 12.
