TLC’s ’90 Day Fiance’ Sets Season 5 Premiere Date (Exclusive)

The series that foisted Anfisa on all of us is coming back to TLC, and we now know when.

The Discovery-owned cable channel will return its “90 Day Fiance” for a fifth season on Sunday, Oct. 8 at 9/8c, TheWrap has learned exclusively.

The anchor show has spawned hit spinoffs “90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days” and”90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After?” That latter iteration just scored an all-time franchise high with this past weekend’s Part 2 of its “Tell All” special, which hauled in a 2.0 rating among women 25-54 and 2.4 million total viewers. Those numbers count three days of delayed viewing, which is pretty standard for judging cable series.

Combined with an episode of “Before the 90 Days,” TLC finished No. 1 in women across all of cable TV’s primetime — excluding Nickelodeon, that is, which only observes one hour in the 180-minute day part.

That night ended up being TLC’s highest-rated Sunday prime since January. So yeah, renewal of the O.G. series was kind of a no-brainer.

Season 5 of “90 Day Fiance” will follow six brand-new couples who take a chance on love and bring their potential spouses-to-be stateside, per the official plot. Using a special K-1 visa, the couples are required to get married at the end of only 90 days, or else be forced to return to their home countries.
