’90 Day Fiancé: Meet the Couples Ahead of the Season 2 Premiere of ‘The Other Way’
Season 2 of 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way is finally here. After a drama-filled first season, fans will be introduced to a whole new set of couples looking to find love abroad. Ahead of the highly-anticipated season 2 premiere, here is a look at all of the new cast members plus which couples are returning for the new season.
’90 Day Fiancé: The Other’ Way prepares for season 2
The Other Way follows individuals from the United States who are looking for love in other countries. Unlike the original show, this spin-off features Americans going outside of their comfort zones and traveling to other regions of the world.
These couples are under a lot of pressure to tie the knot within 90 days while adapting to new cultures and ways of living. The first season of 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way was a big hit with fans and TLC is hoping to follow that up with another successful season.
The network originally had the second season kicking off on June 1 but pushed back the premiere date due to the coronavirus pandemic. The reality series is now set to premiere on June 8.
While there are some couples returning for another go, fans will be introduced to at least four new couples looking to find love around the world.
Who is coming back for another run in ‘The Other Way’?
When it comes to returning couples, fans will get an update on how Jenny and Sumit and Deavan and Jihoon are doing in season 2. Based on how things ended in season 1, there is no telling how the romance will unfold the second time around.
In the first season, Jenny, who is nearly 30 years older than Sumit, gave up everything to be with him in India. Unfortunately, Jenny discovered that Sumit had catfished her by showing photos of a model.
He also lied about being in an arranged marriage. After they sorted that out, Sumit raised more red flags by going missing for days on end. Although the two certainly have issues to overcome, Sumit is determined to be more truthful this time around.
Deavan and Jihoon faired better in the first season but they certainly have some big obstacles ahead of them. Deavan, who hails from Salt Lake City, is looking to move her two children to South Korea to be closer to Deavan.
Some of the challenges the couple face this season include culture shock, language barriers, and raising children in a brand new environment. While it will be great to see how things work out with the returning couples, season 2 will be introducing a bunch of new faces to the mix.

Yazan and Brittany
Hailing from Palm Beach, Brittany and Yazan were introduced through his sister. Although Brittany is determined to fly out to Jordan to meet Yazan in person, religious differences threaten to tear them apart.
Being a dedicated Muslim, Yazan is hoping that Brittany converts to Islam, something she has no interest in doing.
Armando and Kenneth
According to Parade, Armando and Kenneth are the second same-sex couple to appear on 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way. Although there are over 25 years between them, the two immediately connected and Kenneth is determined to make the big move to Mexico.
Their biggest issues will revolve around the fact that Armando’s family does not know he is gay. Not only will he reveal his sexual preferences to his family, but he is also hoping they will accept Kenneth.
Biniyam and Ariela
Ariela traveled around the world following her divorce and was surprised when she fell hard for Biniyam, whom she met in Ethiopia. She stayed in Ethiopia for several months before returning home. It was then that Ariela discovered that she was pregnant.
Season 2 will follow Ariela as she returns to Ethiopia to give birth to her baby with Biniyam. While the two are excited about starting a family together, she will face difficulties with the country’s healthcare system.
Melyza and Tim
Last but not least, 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way fans will meet Melyza and Tim. He is from Texas while she was born and raised in Colombia. When they originally met, the plan was for Melyza to move to the US, but that changed when Tim lost her trust.
Tim is looking to win back Melyza’s trust this season by moving to Colombia and gaining the approval of her mother.
