When the going gets tough, “90 Day Fiance” star Luis gets going.
The TLC subject is quite the groveling groom this Sunday on the Season 3 premiere of the cable channel franchise’s spinoff “90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After?” That question mark is in there for a reason — readers will see what we mean in our video sneak peek, which is exclusive to TheWrap.
After bailing on his wife and her two girls weeks ago, the 27-year-old Dominican Luis returns to his American family, complete with a second chance from 42-year-old Molly. Her college-bound daughter Olivia isn’t super supportive of the marriage mulligan — send that perceptive one to an Ivy League school.
Watch the video above, and see the deets on the unhappy couple below:
Molly, 42 (Woodstock, GA) and Luis, 27 (Dominican Republic)
After spending a few weeks apart, Luis eventually came home and Molly gave him a second chance. However, it’s obvious that Luis is still not ready to step into a fatherly role to Molly’s two daughters. Molly’s eldest daughter Olivia openly does not approve of Luis and decides the only way to deal with her new normal is to leave. Will Molly continue to try to make Luis into the man she wants him to be?
Produced by Sharp Entertainment, “90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After?” premieres Sunday, May 20 at 8/7c on TLC.

Anfisa is working on building her life in America and insists that she will remain in the U.S. no matter what happens. But then someone from Jorge’s past shows up claiming that Jorge is the father of a ten year-old girl, making Anfisa more angry that his finances might not have been the only thing he lied about.
Nicole, 24 (Bradenton, FL) and Azan, 25 (Morocco)
Azan is gearing up for his K-1 VISA interview at the U.S. Consulate in Casablanca, Morocco.
