A second season of Married at First Sight South Africa has been greenlit and will go into production shortly. As with the first series - the new season will be produced by independent local production company Oxyg3n Media.

Series two, which will broadcast on Lifetime (DStv 131) in October this year, will comprise nine episodes and will include a reunion show featuring all the participants from the first series.

In Married at First Sight, singles who have failed to find love, put their hearts in the hands of a team of experts who select their perfect partner; the couples then meet for the first time at the altar. After the wedding and honeymoon, the married couples move in together and start their new lives. From the first kiss to the first tears, cameras document every moment as experts analyse the relationships. Six weeks of marriage later, the couples have to make a decision: to stay together or file for divorce.

Says Oxyg3n Media CEO Rebecca Fuller-Campbell: “We are delighted to have been commissioned to work on the second series of Married at First Sight. We encourage as many people as possible - who are looking for love - to apply and make use of the advice and skills imparted by our wonderful experts, in the hope of finding their true love match."

Call for entries for season two is now open via or , with the age limit for particpants being strictly between 24 and 40-years old only. For more information visit the Oxyg3n Media website or their Facebook page

The Married at First Sight format has been produced in over 25 countries worldwide, and is created by Snowman Productions Denmark, a Red Arrow Entertainment Group company.
