3. ‘Love on the Spectrum’

Many 90 Day Fiancé fans will love this Netflix original reality dating show because of its docu-style reality TV format. Netflix describes Love on the Spectrum as follows: “Finding Love can be hard for anyone. For young adults on the autism spectrum, exploring the unpredictable world of dating is even more complicated.”

Love on the Spectrum has a sense of authenticity that feels similar to what 90 Day Fiancé used to before it became a global phenomenon. Season 2 of Love on the Spectrum was released to Netflix in September 2021. This Australian reality TV show is heartwarming and is a nice break from the chaotic drama of 90 Day Fiancé.

2. ‘Seeking Sister Wife’

TLC’s Seeking Sister Wife debuted in January 2018 and has had three successful seasons. The show documents polygamous families in various stages of welcoming a new sister wife into their relationships. It’s a journey watching the couples battle insecurity and jealousy within their marriages.

This TLC show is another great alternative to 90 Day Fiancé. While there’s still plenty of drama, there’s a freshness of watching couples who aren’t going on the show in the hopes of getting famous. Also, the drama on Seeking Sister Wife doesn’t feel contrived on manufactured, which is a breath of fresh air from 90 Day Fiancé.

1. ‘Love After Lockup’/ ‘Life After Lockup’

A We Tv original reality TV series, Love After Lockup graced TV screens back in 2017. The premise of the show is watching couples finally get to meet their fiancé upon release from prison. Cameras document their road to the altar and the struggles they face, especially with the ex-prisoner adjusting to life beyond bars. The show is currently airing its third season.

Then there’s the spinoff Love After Lockup: Life After Lockup, which continues to document the couples’ journeys, similar to what 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After? is to 90 Day Fiancé fans. Viewers follow couples, who have only communicated through paper and pen, jump straight into dating in real life for the first time. There are apparent similarities between Love After Lockup and 90 Day Fiancé, such as the premise of people marrying someone they’ve only chatted with online or through letters.

If 90 Day Fiancé fans are tired of watching the same couples making the same mistakes, they can make the switch over to watching some of these reality TV shows instead.
