EXCLUSIVE: TLC has ordered a seventh season of its pop culture phenom 90 Day Fiancé. The renewal comes on the heels of the hit docu reality series wrapping its sixth season as the franchise’s highest-rated among women 18-34 in Live+3 ratings.
During its Season 6 run, which also was the show’s second highest among women 18-49 and 25-54, 90 Day Fiancé averaged 2.5 million total viewers (L+3) and was the #1 cable program on Sunday nights among W 18-34 and #2 among W25-54/18-49.
The season, which cracked Twitter’s top 10 national trending topics, was capped off by two tell-all episodes in January. They drew 3.2 million total viewers and a 2.95 W25-54 rating and fueled TLC to log its highest and second highest weeks in 10 years among W25-54. The finale also rose to #1 trending topic on Twitter during its telecast.
“It is so exciting that, after six seasons, the tried and true original 90 Day Fiancé is captivating more viewers than ever,” said Howard Lee, President and General Manager of TLC. “From laughter to tears to a ticking clock, TLC is dedicated to giving our viewers a rollercoaster of emotions with 90 Day Fiancé — and we’re just getting started.”
90 Day Fiancé, produced by Industrial Media’s Sharp Entertainment, follows foreign fiances with K-1 visas who have 90 days to decide whether they’ll marry their U.S. petitioner or leave the U.S. The show has spawned a successful franchise with four spinoffs series to date, most recently 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way.
The franchise has delivered more than 200 programming hours since 2014 and airs in more than 155 countries. Additionally, many of its stars have become household names with regular presence in celebrity publications.
