The network has ordered Tough Love: Couples, a spinoff of its Tough Love reality series that will follow matchmaker Steve Ward and his mother JoAnn as they help five couples contemplating marriage strengthen their relationship via a "tough love boot camp," The Hollywood Reported reported Tuesday.

Once the boot camp is over, Ward will decide on whether he feels the couples are right for each other -- however it's ultimately up to them to decide if they want to take his advice, according to The Reporter.

"Tough Love has become a signature series for VH1 and one that has resonated with millions of our viewers, resulting in thousands of couples applying to be on the show in just the first few weeks of casting," VH1 programming executive Jeff Olde told The Reporter.

"We are excited to take the next step with this series by taking the Wards' unfiltered honesty and matchmaking skills and apply those lessons to couples about to take the big leap, despite some lingering questions."

VH1 has reportedly ordered eight one-hour episodes of Tough Love: Couples, which is set to premiere next year.

Tough Love's first season premiered in March and averaged 1.9 million total viewers throughout its eight-episode run. Its second season premiered last month.

Tough Love and its new spinoff are produced by Drew Barrymore's Flower Films production company and High Noon Entertainment.
