90 Day Fiance: Before The 90 Days Season 5 - Here's What We Can Tell Fans So Far

The hit TLC reality show "90 Day Fiance" is the juggernaut that launched a thousand spinoffs. Well, OK, not a thousand, but a lot of spin-offs. For those who haven't seen it, "90 Day Fiance" follows various couples as they try to make their long-distance relationships work. The couples, who have often never met face to face, make the drastic choice for the non-U.S. partner to move stateside on a 90-day visa. At the end of three months, they must either get married or the foreign half of the couple must return to their own country, further complicating — or ending — their relationship.

As you can imagine, the relationships showcased on the series are often much more tricky than non-reality TV (or even other reality TV) couplings. There have been countless uncomfortable cultural misunderstandings, scandals, and plenty of couples who just seem like they should never have dated in the first place. 

The phenomenal concept along with the devoted fan base has inspired TLC to invest in a number of spinoffs, the best of which is undoubtedly "Before the 90 Days." Though, "90 Day Fiance: The Other Way" isn't without its charms, either. After a crowd-pleasing Season 4 of "Before the 90 Days" fans, are eager to know what's next for the series. Read on for all the deets, including when we can hope to see Season 5, who's in the cast, and which (if any) of the couples are still together.

When will Season 5 be released?

The joy of "90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days" comes from the twist built into the original concept. In "Before the 90 Days," rather than jumping straight into the 90-day visa, couples spend their time mulling over their option to either start the visa by the end of the season or break up. It's slightly higher-stakes than the original and often involves more international travel. Season 1 premiered in August 2017 to widespread success. Season 4 — the most recent season — wrapped in June 2020, per Screen Rant. As it's been a little over a year since Season 4 aired, fans are eager for more. So, what's the deal? When will we be graced with a new season?

As of this writing, there's no info on when exactly Season 5 will come out, but don't worry, that doesn't mean there won't be one. Given the disruptive nature of the COVID-19 pandemic, filming for most reality shows was extremely difficult in 2020. Add in the fact that 'Before the 90 Days" requires crews to be on set in different locations throughout the world, and that at least one half of each couple has to travel (which likely wasn't a possibility for many), and you can see why there have been delays.

We can't tell you for sure when Season 5 is coming, but we're praying it's sooner rather than later.

Who's in the cast?

Season 4 of "90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days" consisted of eight couples hoping to make their (mostly ill-advised) relationships work. The breakout stars of Season 4 were without a doubt Ed Brown and Rosemarie Vega.

Rosemarie was two decades younger than Ed and lived in the Philippines with her young son. Ed lived in San Diego, Calif. and had a grown daughter. The entire relationship was nothing short of meme-worthy with Rose throwing Ed looks of pure disgust, and Ed over explaining how to brush your teeth — as if Rose had never seen a toothbrush.

There were also some familiar faces in Season 4, including Darcy Silva (who currently stars in her own TLC show with her twin sister). Darcy was back after another failed 90-day romance and dating an Englishman named Tom Brooks who was not very nice to her or her sister. As it's unclear whether or not Season 5 has begun filming, it's unclear just who is in the cast, though it's a safe bet that some old fan favorites, like Darcy, or even Ed, might return.

Who's still together?

Now, for the question on everyone's mind: who is still together? Well, we're sorry to disappoint but if you were overly invested in any of the Season 4 couples than we've got bad news, because every last one of them has reportedly split.

Anyone who's even seen an ad for Season 4 won't be surprised by the news that Ed and Rose didn't make it, ditto Darcy and Tom. Sadly, fan-favorite couple, Erika Owens and Stephanie Matto, also didn't have much longevity either. Notably the first same-sex couple to be featured on the show, when Stephanie arrived in Australia, she was cautious about making their relationship physical and Erika didn't take it well.

Varya Malina and Goeffrey Paschel also couldn't make it work, even after Varya dramatically showed up at his Knoxville Tenn. home, though they made it a few months after the finale before calling it quits. Surprisingly, Lisa Hamme and Usman Umar actually had the longest relationship (though it was on and off), though they officially called it quits in December and Lisa announced she married someone else in April, per E!. David Murphey and Lana, and Avery Warner and "life coach" Ash Naeck also hit the skids. And finally, the least surprising breakup of all, Yolanda Leak and her catfish "The Williams," per In Touch.

Moral of the story? If you want your relationship to work, keep it off of TLC.
