"Married at First Sight" is a reality series on Lifetime that is based on the hit Danish format. The first four seasons originally aired on FYI.

This series is an extreme social experiment following six brave souls who are yearning for a life-long partnership as they agree to a provocative proposal: getting legally married the moment they first meet. Four specialists — sexologist, Dr. Logan Levkoff; spiritualist, Greg Epstein; psychologist, Dr. Joseph Cilona; and sociologist, Dr. Pepper Schwartz — will create what they believe are three perfect couples, based on scientific matchmaking. The couples will never meet or know each other until they walk down the aisle and see each other face to face, for the first time, when they get married.

Each episode will follow the classic lifestyle stories of newlyweds — from the honeymoon to early nesting to other relatable events of married life. After several weeks together, each couple must make a decision: do they remain together or decide to separate?



Season 5

In the fifth season, Chi-Town based singles yearning for a life-long partnership agree to a provocative proposal: getting legally married to a stranger the moment they first meet. A team of experts that includes sociologist Dr. Pepper Schwartz; communication and relationship expert, Rachel DeAlto; and marriage counselor, Pastor Calvin Roberson, create what they believe are three compatible couples based on scientific matchmaking. The couples will not meet until they walk down the aisle and see each other face-to-face, for the first time, at the altar. The series will capture each couple's journey as they go from wedding, to honeymoon, to early nesting, to the daily struggle of working on their marriage. After several weeks together, each couple must make a decision: do they remain together or decide to divorce?
