TLC’s high-rated international romance series, “90 Day Fiance,” returns for a second season on Sunday, Oct. 19, 2014, at 9 p.m. ET.
Six new engaged couples trade in their long distance relationships to allow the show’s cameras to follow them as they reunite in the United States and hope that a special 90-day visa for fiancés provides enough time to seal the deal on their marriage.
For the first time, the series’ castmembers include American women who have fallen in love with men from other countries.
Some of these couples have only spent a few days together before joining the show and will have to introduce their fiances and fiancees to their family, friends and their new homes for the first time — on camera.
Produced by Sharp Entertainment, “90 Day Fiance’s” first season finale was the highest rated of the season with TLC’s key demographic Women 25-54 and the advertiser-coveted Adult 18-49 demo. It was watched by 2 million total viewers.
Watch TheWrap’s first look at the season above.
