More Married at First Sight South Africa


A second season of Married at First Sight South Africa has been greenlit for production, set to air on Lifetime this fall.

As with the first, the new season will be produced by the independent local production company Oxyg3n Media. Lifetime will launch the new nine-episode run in October. It will also include a reunion show featuring all the participants from the first season.

Oxyg3n Media’s CEO, Rebecca Fuller-Campbell, said: “We are delighted to have been commissioned to work on the second series of Married at First Sight. We encourage as many people as possible—who are looking for love—to apply and make use of the advice and skills imparted by our wonderful experts, in the hope of finding their true love match.”

Koulla Anastasi, the director of programming for Lifetime at A+E Networks UK, added: “The first series of Married at First Sight South Africa was a huge hit with our Lifetime audience in South Africa, so we are thrilled to bring it back for a second series and introduce our viewers to a new group of soon-to-be newlyweds.”
