'Married At First Sight: Couples Cam' Season 2: Release date, cast and all you need to know about the reality show
There's a slim chance reality TV may not be as real as one might think. Even though showrunners have never really confirmed that they build storylines or add characters to the narrative viewers seem to have made peace with the possibility that not everything that they see on TV is real. Having said that 'Married at First Sight' comes across as a very authentic social experiment that strangers participate in hoping that they'll get their fair shot at love. Some do, most don't but then the show cannot be blamed for it.
It happens in real life too. However, the point is, when we see these couples trying to establish a connection wishing they'll get their happily ever afters, we only get access to a fraction, a sort of edited version of the stories, which is not the case with the show's spin-off series 'Couples' Cam'.
'Married at First Sight: Couples' Cam' Season 2 premieres on Lifetime on February 4, Thursday at 8/7c.

'Married At First Sight: Couples' Cam': Will Jamie Otis's pregnancy outshine storylines of her castmates?
Like we mentioned earlier, it's not as same as its flagship show, which focuses only on how couples tackle everyday challenges while developing a deep, meaningful relationship with each other. In 'Couples' Cam', we get behind-the-scenes footage. It's a completely self-shot series and was started with the thought of getting a peek into the lives of couples beyond 'MAFS' and how they are managing the pandemic. Of course, things have opened up now and the lockdown restrictions are not as intense as they used to be. Therefore Season 2 will be a bit different. Maybe we'll even see some of them step out. If you remember, last year Dough Hehner and Jamie Otis had to opt for a home birth because delivering at a hospital seemed next to impossible and scary in equal measure.
We have returning couples Doug and Jamie (Season 1), Ashley Petta and Anthony D'Amico (Season 5), Shawniece Jackson and Jephte Pierre (Season 6), Danielle Bergman and Bobby Dodd (Season 8), Stephanie Sersen and AJ Vollmoeller (Season 8), Kristine Killingsworth and Keith Dewar (Season 8), Beth Bice and Jamie Thompson (Season 9), Greg Okotie and Deonna McNeill (Season 9), and Jessica Studer and Austin Hurd (Season 10). New cast additions from Season 11 are Karen Landry and Miles Williams, Amani Aliyya and Woody Randall, and Amelia Fatsi and Bennett Kirschner.

The Lifetime show is produced by Kinetic Content and serving as executive producers are Chris Coelen, Eric Detwiler, Ally Simpson, Scott Teti and Geoff Nuanes.
