The hit reality series "Married At First Sight" begins Season 3 in December. However, the FYI show will take a crack at a new location for the social experiment when the series heads to Georgia.

Couples were previously selected from the New York area, but this season they will be selected from Atlanta, A&E said. In addition to the location change, the episodes also will be slightly longer in Season 3. The show used to run for an hour, but this season the episodes will be extended by 15 minutes.

"Married At First Sight" is a social experiment that follows six singles who agree to marry a person after meeting for the first time. Four specialists put the three couples together based on "scientific matchmaking" and the couple don't formally meet until they walk down the aisle.

The couples then have to live with one another for four weeks before determining if they will stay married or get divorced. The four specialists behind the experiment are sexologist Logan Levkoff, psychologist Joseph Cilona, sociologist Pepper Schwartz and spiritual adviser Greg Epstein.

All three couples from Season 2 ended up divorcing. One was particularly messy: Jessica Castro and Ryan De Nino remained together when the show ended, but they ended up separating after six months. Not only did Jessica believe Ryan was cheating, but she also reportedly feared her ex and filed for an order of protection.

Despite no couple making it out of Season 2, two couples from Season 1 remain together and are currently starring on "Married At First Sight: The First Year" Season 2, which premiered Oct. 13. On the series Cortney Hendrix and Jason Carrion are on the same page with each other after having a few difficult moments in their first year of marriage while Doug Hehner and Jamie Otis have hit a rough patch over the idea of having a baby.

The “Married at First Sight” Season 3 two-hour premiere airs Tuesday, Dec. 1, at 9 p.m. EDT on FYI.
