Married at First Sight, Renewed for Season 2


Australia has apparently fallen in love with Married at First Sight, the extreme social experiment where four couples meet for the very first time on their wedding day. The series was renewed for a second season just a day after the first episode has premiered.

The premiere episode of Married at First Sight was an immediate ratings smash, convincingly winning its timeslot in all five of the mainland capitals. The series averaged an impressive national audience of 1.565 million. Moreover, the extreme dating show was the No. 1 program of the night across the five mainland capitals in Nine’s targeted demographic of People 25-54. Based on these numbers, there’s no wonder that Married at First Sight was already renewed for a second season that will air on the Nine Network in 2016.

We are all so immensely proud of this program and are pleased that it has resonated so strongly with Australian viewers. From the outset, we knew that what we were creating was not just another reality program, rather a ground-breaking social experiment. We are thrilled that people have formed their own opinions on the value of this radical method of matchmaking,” Andrew Backwell, Director of Programming and Production with the Nine Network, said.
