'90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way' Season 3 is here and fans are in for a treat as the 90 Day Fiancé franchise continues to grow from strength to strength. 

The original 90 Day Fiancé follows couples who have applied for or received a K-1 visa, which is available to foreign fiancés of US citizens. In the series, non-American women must decide whether to get married within 90 days or break things off and return home.

Fans of the show will already know that there are a whopping 16 spin-offs from the series, including 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After and 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days and now Season 3 of 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way has reached TLC to follow even more couples and their relationships.
