It's expected that Married at First Sight Season 17 will follow similar beats to the other 16 seasons, as Lifetime's formula for the series hasn't cracked just yet. Married at First Sight follows couples that have been married after being paired by a matchmaker who has evaluated the likelihood of their compatibility.

From there, the show keeps tabs on the events of their newlywed life. Viewers will follow these couples on their journey as they make it past the honeymoon period and into real life.

A panel of experts will weigh in on each couple's progress. This panel is constructed of a relationship specialist, a psychologist, and a sexologist who can offer their own insight into their area of expertise when things are going well — or if they happen to fall apart quickly.
