90 Day Fiance The Other Way: New Spinoff Announces Premiere Date!

by at .

This July, Chantel and Pedro's 90 Day Fiance spinoff will premiere on TLC for the first time.

But The Family Chantel isn't the only spinoff that's been in the works, and another will premiere even earlier than that.

90 Day Fiance: The Other Way will have its series premiere sooner than you ever imagined.

In a press release about the exciting new series in the popular franchise, TLC teases what viewers can expect from The Other Way.

"Viewers are familiar with the premise of hit 90 Day Fiance," the statement begins.

In case anyone had somehow missed it, the statement reminds them: "when an American brings their partner from abroad."

But there's a catch to the K-1 visa process, and it's right there in the show's name.

"And has only 90 days to marry them," the statement notes. "Or have their partner leave the country."

In some cases, stars on 90 Day Fiance have never met in person before that 90 day countdown begins.

"But in this new spinoff series," the statement continues. "They’ll find out what happens when love flows in the opposite direction."

As previously reported, this spinoff will follow Americans who move to other countries instead of the other way around.

In this case, the term 90 Day Fiance becomes a bit of a stretch.

Different nations have different policies on immigration and immigration for marriage.

The United States' policies on immigration and visas are notoriously strict.

This series will be flipping the (non) script and showing viewers how very different the experience can be.

"A collection of Americans make the ultimate sacrifice," TLC describes.

(To be clear, plenty of people moving to the US on the original series came from very nice countries themselves)

The statement continues: "and move across the globe."

TLC notes that they're willing to leave it all behind "for the person they love."

Here, a primarily American audience will see different narratives play out.

"Leaving their American comforts for vastly different ways of life leads to major culture shock," the statement notes.

Much of the world has a fairly reasonable idea of how things are in the United States, largely because of television and film.

Unfortunately, a lack of globally popular media from many countries means that Americans may be ignorant about what to expect.

TLC promises that viewers will watch Americans "as they experience the challenges of relocating for their international love affairs."

As always, there is a definite question of whether things will work out in the end ... and whether it was even worth it to try.

"Will uprooting their lives in the United States pay off?" TLC asks.

Living in the most powerful nation on Earth has some drawbacks, but it's a lot to give up.

"Or," the statement concludes. "Will it be the biggest mistake of their lives?"

After all, leaving it all behind for love sounds romantic.

But love can fizzle out in a matter of decades. Or years. Or even months.

90 Day Fiance: The Other Way premieres in June of this year.

There has been a rumor bouncing around on the internet that one couple who is familiar to viewers will appear on this series.

Some have suspected that Paul and Karine (who just welcomed their baby boy!) will be the ones, since they've been in Brazil this whole dang time.

Even though Steven returned to the US without Olga, it won't be those two, since Olga and baby Alex will follow him in a matter of weeks.

But mostly this spinoff will be about new couples with very different dynamics.

Viewers won't know what to expect until they tune in. Or at least until that first trailer drops.
