"90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way" is a new spin-off in the franchise by TLC. According to The Wrap, the announcement of the new Reality TV show came from TLC's general manager, Howard Lee. The news came on Thursday during the Television Critics Association press tour. The new spin-off will see Americans going off to other countries. It's the fourth series in the franchise. So far, there's the original "'90 Day Fiancé," “90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days,” and “90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After?”

'The Other Way' structure in the '90 Day' franchise

TLC explored how people meet for a limited amount of time and then decide to marry or not.

Usually, an American gets to meet a foreigner and then they see how it works out. If it works, the new partner from overseas can apply for a green card. Presumably, after that, they live their lives happily ever after. It is surprising to find out that Matt Sharp was reported by In Touch Weekly as saying, "Our batting average on this show is that out of every 25 couples on "90 Day Fiancé," we’ve only had three divorces. That’s less than 10 percent and the current U.S. (divorce) rate is over 40 percent."

The new idea with "90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way," is that this time around, the Americans will be the foreigners. They will go off to other countries and get together with a local person. The same three months to marry or not will apply.

In Touch noted that the foreigners chosen for the original show are discovered via immigration attorneys. That's going to be very useful as some foreign countries are sticky about marriages of convenience. That will probably make it very unlikely there will be a couple hook-up in South Africa, for example.

No start date for the series was revealed

There was no series start date announced, but the inspiration for it apparently came through the existing franchise. Matt said that people say, "I’m going to forego my lifestyle, my family, my culture, my country to be with this person." That's intriguing and supposedly works the other way around as well.

Americans do sometimes give up their culture and families and go elsewhere. Of course, this has already been an angle explored in other shows over the years. Dating and marrying shows are popular with viewers, so it's likely this new show will also be a hit. TLC has a track record of success with shows like "Spouse House." If you have a winning idea, why not stay with the same genre?

What do you think about the new show? Will they find enough contestants who seriously want to leave everything American behind them? Be sure to check back with Blasting News often to keep on top of "90 Day Fiance" spoilers and news.
