TLC has added a new installment to its hit “90 Day Fiancé” franchise.
Following their appearance on “90 Day Finacé: Happily Ever After?” fan-favorite couple Pedro and Chantel are getting their own reality show, “The Family Chantel,” beginning in July.
“This is an awesome moment for TLC, as we create a family show based on one of our most popular 90 Day couples, and on a whole new night,” said Howard Lee, president and general manager of TLC. “Our fans can’t get enough of Pedro, Chantel and their larger-than-life families. For a brand known as THE destination for love, relationships and family shows, ‘The Family Chantel’ hits the bullseye.”
Here’s TLC’s official description of the series: “From their beginnings on ’90 Day Fiancé’ season four through ’90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After?,’ Pedro and Chantel have weathered major marital ups and downs involving everything from feisty family members to their own trust issues. Viewers will follow this unique modern family as they try to move past their differences and come together as an extended family, but as Chantel’s parents Karen and Thomas try to protect their brood, will they push their children too far?”
Set to air Monday nights this summer, “The Family Chantel” will also feature Chantel’s parents Karen and Thomas and siblings River and Winter, as well as Pedro’s mother Lidia and sister Nicole. It is produced by Sharp Entertainment for TLC.
In addition to the flagship series, which recently was renewed for a seventh season, the “90 Day Fiancé” franchise also includes the shows “Before the 90 Days,” “Happily Ever After?,” “What Now?” and the other new series this summer, “90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way,” which flips the format on its head and follows Americans as they move across the globe for the person they love.
