A+E Networks-owned channel Lifetime has ordered two more “supersized” seasons of series Married at First Sight, produced by Red Arrow Studios-owned non-scripted prodco Kinetic Content.

For the 10th and 11th seasons, the women-skewing American pay-TV channel has greenlit 17 two-hour episodes.

Married at First Sight (pictured) follows singles who, matched by experts, meet their betrothed for the first time at the altar. The series captures each couple’s journey from the wedding to the honeymoon, early nesting and the “daily struggles” of their marriage.

After several weeks together, each couple must decide whether to stay together or divorce.

Slated to return in 2020, the series’ 10th season will, for the first time, watch five couples in the Washington, D.C. area attempt to secure a life-long partnership. The 11th season will travel to New Orleans.

Executive producers for the series are Chris Coelen, Eric Detwiler, Ally Simpson, Jason Sands and Kelly Montalvo from Kinetic Content and Gena McCarthy from Lifetime.
