A person could have many servings of beans-on-toast in 90 days, but is it enough time to figure out what a "cheeky Nando’s" is?
People on the latest of a long list of 90 Day Fiance spinoffs are about to find out.
The runaway hit reality series is being adapted for the U.K., following eight couples trying to live happily ever after on an island that once ruled the world.
The United Kingdom has different regulations on immigration, but will present engaged partners with a slew of new problems.
We don’t yet have a premiere date or even a partial cast list for this spinoff. We don’t even have a series title.
90 Day Fiance: Innit has a certain ring to it, but seems like an unlikely name.
But The Sun reports that the spinoff, whatever its name may be, is happening. This is not a drill.
90 Day Fiance has featured a few Brits over the years.
However, since part of the show’s focus is on drama (and, let’s face it, catering to stereotypes, expectations, and bigotry held by the audience), there isn’t always enough conflict.
Partners for the 8 Brits being featured on this new show are making their way to the island from countries like Japan, Mexico, and Lebanon.

90 Day Fiance began in 2014, and already has more spinoffs than years under its belt.
“It has proved its worth over there," the insider said of the original show and its spinoffs, "and the addition of British daters can only be a good thing.”
“As our couples fly in and out of Blighty," the source teased, "expect warm, heartfelt moments."
The insider continued: "As well as tears of frustration and laughter in the face of real romantic jeopardy."
The source said that viewers will watch "as these loved-up hopefuls overcome the obstacles that stand in the way of being together."
“We will laugh, cry, and cringe alongside the couples," the insider promised.
The source teased that the cast will be "facing disapproval from their families, secrets from their pasts."
"And," the insider added, "dramatic personality and cultural clashes.”
While that leak from a Discovery Plus insider may sound like an official blurb, this spinoff has yet to be formally announced.
That announcement should come soon, however — especially now that the cat is out of the bag.
And filming itself is already underway, as the couples’ stories of love and drama are captured by production crews.
Filming is said to be at the halfway stage — meaning that they’re about halfway into the season (though it’s not quite that simple)
Between this report and the natural cycle of this type of reality series (averaging about 8 months since filming), we’re looking at a premire date in late 2022.
While the show may cater in part to a United Kingdom audience, the report affirms that the series will premiere on Discovery Plus.
