Married at First Sight: Honeymoon Island will feature 20 participants unlucky in love -- both fan-favorite MAFS participants and previously unmatched candidates, as well as new singles -- gathering together on an island for an opportunity to make connections with each other.
"At the end of their stay, couples must decide whether they want to get married or part ways," according to Lifetime, which will air the series as eight one-hour episodes.
Honeymoon Island is being executive produced by Chris Coelen, Eric Detwiler, Cat Rodriguez, Ally Simpson and Gena McCarthy.
Married at First Sight: Happily Ever After will chronicle several relationships from the franchise that have withstood the ultimate commitment under the most unusual circumstances.
The show will feature three couples from past Married at First Sightseasons who have decided to stay married beyond the experiment, documenting their daily milestones -- the good, the bad and the ugly.
Married at First Sight: Happily Ever After will focus on Shawniece and Jephte's "emotional journey to becoming parents," teases Lifetime.

Married at First Sight: Happily Ever After is being executive produced by the same people behind Honeymoon Island, with the additions of Alex Cross and Shura Davidson, and also air as eight one-hour episodes.
Based on the network's descriptions, it appears Lifetime is borrowing the premise of ABC's Bachelor in Paradise, which features rejected singles from The Bachelor and The Bachelorette receiving a second chance at finding love at a resort in Mexico, as well as TLC's 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After?, which follows established engaged or married couples from its original series.
In 2017, Married at First Sightalso did a second spinoff, Married At First Sight: Second Chances, which starred Vanessa Nelson and David Norton, who participated in Season 3 but each ended up divorcing the partner they had married on the show.
Married At First Sight: Second Chances featured a format similar to The Bachelor/The Bachelorette in which Vanessa and David each dated a group of singles and eliminated them weekly until only one remained.
Married at First Sight: The First Year ran for two seasons, but Married At First Sight: Second Chances was not renewed for a second season. However, Doug and Jamie did star in a third spinoff -- Married at First Sight: Jamie and Doug Plus One -- late last year.
