In addition, the new season will feature two brand new experts: Hollywood producer, author and relationship advisor DeVon Franklin as well as psychotherapist Dr. Pia Holec, who specializes in sex and couples’ therapy.

DeVon and Dr. Pia will be joining returning MAFS experts Pastor Calvin Roberson and Dr. Pepper Schwartz, making Married at First Sight Season 15 the first edition since Season 3 to feature a four-person panel of experts.

Pastor Calvin, Dr. Pepper and Dr. Viviana Coles had previously served as Married at First Sight’s panel of experts since Dr. Viviana joined MAFS in Season 9.

Following the premiere, Married at First Sight will continue to air two-hour episodes every week featuring San Diego-based couples navigating the extreme eight-week experiment.

The new season will also represent the first time Married at First Sight has ever filmed a season in a West Coast city.

The five brides from San Diego who were selected to wed on Season 15 of Married at First Sight are Lindy, a 29-year-old doctor of physical therapy; Krysten, a 32-year-old sales representative; Alexis, a 29-year-old logistics specialist; Stacia, a 37-year-old accountant; and Morgan, a 27-year-old registered nurse.

The five grooms who will be starring on the new edition are Miguel, a 35-year-old associate medical director; Mitch, a 41-year-old environmental policy advocate; Justin, a 33-year-old digital marketing specialist; Nate, a 34-year-old day trader; and Binh, a 29-year-old engineer.

The pairs of strangers to be married on Season 15 are Lindy and Miguel, Krysten and Mitch, Alexis and Justin, Stacia and Nate, and Morgan and Binh.

Two weeks prior to the July 6 premiere, Lifetime will air a Season 15 Married at First Sight: Matchmaking Special on Wednesday, June 22 at 8PM ET/PT.

The Matchmaking Special will feature Married at First Sight experts selecting cast members from the show’s filming location, San Diego, to wed total strangers.

Lifetime will follow that up with a Married at First Sight: Kick-Off Special hosted by Kevin Frazier on Wednesday, June 29 at 8PM ET/PT.

The Married at First Sight: Kick-Off Special will feature behind-the-scenes footage of the five Season 15 couples about to get married with never before-seen-moments from the selection process and “previously unreleased secrets from the Married at First Sight experts,” according to Lifetime.

Married at First Sight: Afterparty, once again hosted by Keshia Knight Pulliam, will also return on July 6 and air Wednesday nights at 11PM ET/PT immediately after each new episode.

Afterparty welcomes a rotating lineup of cast members discussing their experiences, from drama to romance, as well as special guests to offer a fresh perspective.

After meeting for the first time at their wedding ceremony, each Season 15 couple will then have the next couple of months of their new married lives documented — beginning with their wedding ceremony, reception and honeymoon, and continuing with the joys and struggles of daily life as they move in together and adjust to being newlyweds with their stranger spouse.

Over the years, Married at First Sight has resulted in 14 couples still married and nine children.

Married at First Sight is produced by Kinetic Content with Chris Coelen, Eric Detwiler, Montre Burton, Toni Gallagher, Erica Kessler, Amy Winter and Cat Rodriguez serving as executive producers.

Married at First Sight is currently wrapping up its fourteenth season based in Boston, MA, with the season’s Married at First Sight: Where Are They Now? special airing on Wednesday, June 1 at 8PM ET/PT.

Two of Season 14’s five couples, Noi Phommasak and Steve Moy as well as Katina Goode and Olajuwon Dickerson, were still together by the time the reunion was filmed five months after Decision Day.

The season’s three other couples split before or on Decision Day: Alyssa Ellman and Chris Collette, Jasmina Outar and Michael Morency, and Mark Maher and Lindsey Georgoulis.
