Everything We Know About Married At First Sight 2024

Married At First Sight (MAFS) has been around for 10 seasons, but there's no chance of the reality TV juggernaut slowing down anytime soon as it has returned with Season 11 in 2024.
The dating show's concept can be described as a string of arranged marriages of sorts, where two strangers meet at the altar for the first time and get married in front of their close family and friends.
But the extravagant nuptials are only the beginning of the emotional rollercoaster for the contestants (and for us as viewers). As the couples embark on romantic honeymoons, move in together and meet the other cast members at the dramatic dinner parties, the social experiment truly unfolds to test the theory of whether you can you fall in love after getting married at first sight.
Finally, we've been gifted with details on when MAFS 2024 will be gracing our screens and more importantly, who the bride and grooms will be. Ahead, everything you need to know about Married At First Sight Australia 2024.
