'90 Day Fiancé' spinoff: More than 40 cast members returning in 'self-quarantine' series

The cast of 90 Day Fiancé is used to video calls and being away from loved ones and now TLC is giving fans a new series, titled 90 Day Fiancé: Self-Quarantined, a spinoff inspired by the coronavirus pandemic.

The five-episode limited series premieres on April 20 and will include more than 40 cast members of the hit series.

Howard Lee, president of TLC, told Variety that for the cast members, video chatting is “is already in their DNA.”

90 Day Fiancé: Self-Quarantined cast members began recording themselves earlier this week and will be taped for confessional interviews by production company Sharp Entertainment over video chat.

“Our crew is not near them physically at all,” Lee told the outlet. “They will be helping them remotely.”

“And they have no problem with this, the couples,” Lee said. “They’re seizing this opportunity. I think that they’re actually really enjoying it, being able to show a part of their lives at home.”

Lee said the series will look “very hot-off-the-press — it will look like the paint has not dried.”

“I think our audience is incredibly forgiving right now, and I’m hoping that they accept the way it looks. It will be messy!” he added.

He said TLC went through the fan favourite couples over the show’s six-year history to decide who would be asked to take part in the spinoff.

“Who are we wanting to hear the latest news and updates from — who comes to top of mind for our audience?” he said.

The cast will include Darcey and couple Emily and Sasha from the most recent seasons. It will also include Pedro and Chantel, who’ve been on several seasons of 90 Day Fiancé.

The five episodes of 90 Day Fiancé: Self-Quarantined air through May.

Lee revealed that the spinoff is “a limited series event, a one-time-only,” but “if for some reason, this is popular, and the audience really loves it, I don’t know — maybe there’s more down the road!”
