With six 90 Day Fiancé spin-offs to date, TLC is hoping to strike gold for a seventh time—this time, with a much younger cast of geographically challenged couples.
According to Starcasm, “90 Day Fiancé” show producers are casting for a potential new franchise spin-off to bring to TLC, tentatively titled 90 Day Fiancé: College Edition.
According to the site, Sharp Entertainment is interested in casting a group of couples, specifically “students (college/university/graduate students) who are in a relationship, in which one partner in the relationship is an international student (studying in the U.S. on a student visa).”
As for the requirements of potential cast members, the producers are looking for students who are set to graduate soon; one must be a U.S. citizen and the other must be “an international student graduation around December 2019 or a former international student whose OPT is expiring.”
According to the Backstage casting website, potential cast members must be between the age of 18 and 32.
If the ‘College Edition’ ultimately moves forward, it would be the seventh spin-off to follow the original “90 Day Fiancé.” As of now, the spin-offs include 90 Day Fiancé: Pillow Talk, 90 Day Fiancé: What Now?, 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days, 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way, 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After? and The Family Chantel.
As The Ashley told you in August, ‘The Family Chantel,’ which features “90 Day Fiancé” and “90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After?” alums Pedro Jimeno and Chantel Everett (along with Chantel’s wig-snatchin’ family) set a franchise record with its July premiere, bringing in 1.527 million viewers.
Along with the success of ‘The Family Chantel,’ “90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way” also proved to be a big hit for the network, debuting with 1.232 million viewers in June. By the August 5 episode, viewership had grown to 1.801 million.
