Keep ’em coming! TLC’s show 90 Day Fiancé, which features American citizens bringing their international lovers over to the United States on a K-1 visa to decide if they want to get married, is getting yet another spinoff! It’s called 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way, and you can probably already guess where this is going.
That’s right, rather than bringing their partners to America, this new spinoff will feature U.S. citizens willing to give up their whole lives to join their significant other in a different country, and all the struggles that come along with that choice.
“We noticed in the casting process there were Americans who said ‘I’m going to forego my lifestyle, my family, my culture, my country to be with this person,'” explained executive producer Matt Sharp of the inspiration behind the new series during TCA. “There have been little bits of this in other shows.”
The new series will join a family of shows born from the 90 Day Fiancé franchise, becoming the fourth spinoff. The other three are Before the 90 Days, Happily Ever After?, and What Now?
This new installation will be cast the same way as the other four. “We don’t put people together,” said Matt. “Everyone we feature on the show, they found themselves organically.” He explained that he finds the couples though immigration attorneys.
Matt has high hopes for the success of his new show, and the couples on it. “Our batting average on this show is that out of every 25 couples on 90 Day Fiancé, we’ve only had three divorces. That’s less than 10 percent and the current U.S. (divorce) rate is over 40 percent. It’s one of the reasons why people love this show, it’s so unexpected.” We can’t wait to watch it all unfold!
