’90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After?’ Season 8: Meet the Cast

Kobe and Emily from 90 Day Fiance

It’s one thing to court your spouse through a 90-day Visa program that gives you three months to decide if they’re the person you want to spend the rest of your life with (who hasn’t been there?). It’s a whole other thing to actually make that “rest of your life together” worthwhile and fulfilling.


That’s where 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After? comes in, or more specifically, the question mark at the end of its title. Although a press release for the newest season understandably brags that 90DF marriages have a “78% success rate – higher than the national average,” there’s a reason why the main franchise focuses on the courtship process rather than the marriage.

But beyond the will-they-or-won’t-they-last intrigue, 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After? is also an opportunity to check in with longtime favorites. Here’s a look at who’s returning for the new season of 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After?, which premieres Sunday, March 17 at 8pm ET on TLC.
