Lifetime announced today that Married at First Sight has been renewed for six additional seasons, ensuring it will be on the air for the foreseeable future. The pickup will bring the reality series up to at least Season 17.

The show first premiered back in 2014 on FYI before moving to Lifetime in 2017, where it continues to rank as the network's #1 series. Currently in Season 11, episodes have been drawing an average of 1.7 million total viewers (Live+3).

Married at First Sight uses an unconventional method of pairing up singles looking for a life-long partnership. Relationship experts match up the candidates, who agree to get legally married upon - as the title suggests - first meeting each other. After several weeks of being newlyweds, the couple then decides to either stay together or get divorced.
