A&E has not cancelled Married at First Sight, despite reports to the contrary, and is proceeding with season three, which is being filmed in the Atlanta area.
Married at First Sight‘s second season ended with all three relationships collapsing, and with one ending in an order of protection and threats of violence. That may be an unfortunate reflection of the reality of some relationships, an abject failure of the production, or both. But it has not yet caused the end of the series, which switched to A&E after its hit first season.
In the aftermath of season two, several web sites are reporting–though that’s not an accurate term for what this drivel is–that the show has been cancelled. One, called “Realty Today” (as in real estate, not reality TV), which has been cited elsewhere, seems designed to gather clicks from searches. While its headline says “Married at First Sight season 3 cancelled,” the story says no such thing. Attributed to a “staff reporter,” it instead says the show’s “future remains uncertain.”
Wrong on all accounts. I asked A&E and was told:
“We have not canceled the show.”
