Lifetime revealed the Season 11 pickup of Married at First Sight as part of a two-season renewal announcement in which it announced that (similar to the last two years) it has renewed the series for two additional seasons that will both air in 2020.

However, the tenth-season renewal wasn't really a surprise considering the network had already previously announced Season 10 will premiere January 1, 2020.

Season 10 and Season 11 of Married at First Sight will each consist of seventeen two-hour episodes, according to Lifetime.

Season 10 will be based in Washington, D.C.

While the network has not yet confirmed how many couples will star on Season 11, Married at First Sight's tenth edition will feature five new couples marrying strangers for the first time in show history.

Since episodes will be supersized for both of the upcoming seasons, it's likely five couples will also star on Season 11.

"We're thrilled to see Married at First Sight achieve record ratings in its ninth season, with great things to come in 2020 as we expand the format even more. It's become destination viewing for Lifetime," Lfetime executive Gena McCarthy said.

In early 2019, Married at First Sight began casting for singles in Washington, D.C. to star on Season 10.

Married at First Sight's eleventh season will presumably be based in New Orleans, LA, given the show began casting for an additional season there in August.

According to the New Orleans season's casting application, potential cast members must be available for interviews in late November, as well as late January and early February 2020.

Assuming Lifetime uses a similar schedule as it has the last couple of years, Married at First Sight's eleventh season will premiere in June or July.

Married at First Sight's ninth edition, which wrapped on Lifetime last week and debuted in June, was filmed in Charlotte, NC.

Married at First Sight features experts matching up pairs of strangers based on their compatibility, goals, physical type, hobbies, religion, views of marriage and gender roles, and more.

Last season's experts were sociologist Dr. Pepper, marriage counselor Pastor Calvin Roberson, and newcomer Dr. Viviana Coles, a psychotherapist who replaced Dr. Jessica Griffin.

After meeting for the first time on their big day, each couple gets married and the next six to eight weeks of their lives are documented -- beginning with their wedding ceremony, reception and honeymoon, and continuing with the joys and struggles of daily life as they move in together and adjust to their new life as newlyweds.

Married at First Sight's ninth season just ended with two couples choosing to get a divorce on "Decision Day": Amber Bowles and Matthew Gwynne as well as Iris Caldwell and Keith Manley.

However, the season's other two couples -- Elizabeth Bice and Jamie Thompson as well as Deonna McNeill and Gregory Okotie -- opted to remain married.
