Produced by Sharp Entertainment, the same production company behind TLC's 90 Day Fiance cable ratings juggernaut, Love After Lockup follows couples in which one partner has been behind bars uniting (or reuniting) after the incarcerated partner's release from prison.
Neither renewal is a surprise given the two shows each average over a million viewers and currently rank among WE tv's highest-rated television series.
Love After Lockup's first season aired on WE tv in early 2018 and was followed by "Season 2A," which premiered in December 2018 and concluded in March 2019.
The show proved to be such a big hit that the network premiered Life After Lockup in June and then immediately followed that with "Season 2B" of Love After Lockup, which featured a completely different cast of couples than "Season 2A."
"Even here, we're all so curious how their stories are evolving," WE tv president Marc Juris told Variety about Life After Lockup's origin. "We have some happy couples, and then we have many troubled couples who are still trying to work through it."
