WE tv has just officially announced a brand new season of their popular Love After Lockup spin-off series Life After Lockup! Season 3 will feature a whopping EIGHT COUPLES, including three couples from the current season of Love After Lockup. (Actually, there are some trios, and even a quartet if you count Nicolle, Jr.)
Cast members from the current season who will hop straight over to Life After Lockup include Daonte, Nicolle and Tia, Britney and Ray, and Stan and Lisa. I must confess that I NEVER expected to see Daonte, Nicolle, Stan and Lisa on Life After Lockup simply because their relationships appear to be imploding quickly. Hopefully it won’t feel like producers are just stretching their story lines.
The fresh faces from the current season will be joined by vets Brittany and Marcelino, Lacey and Shane (and John?), Amber and Puppy, John and Kristianna, and Shawn, Destinie and Sara.
Here is the dramatic preview trailer for the new season of Life After Lockup, followed by the blurbs for each of the couples/trios/quartets from the network’s press release. I will also add in any relevant links to Starcasm stories about what will be featured on the show.
THESE COUPLES FOUND LOVE AFTER LOCKUP… NOW THEY’RE COMMITTED FOR LIFE
“LIFE AFTER LOCKUP” SEASON 3 RETURNS AUGUST 27 ONLY ON WE TV
NEW YORK, NY – July 28, 2021 — The third season of WE tv’s smash hit docuseries Life After Lockup returns with 16 new episodes on Friday, August 27 at 9 PM ET/ 8 PM CT. The insanely addicting series follows 10 former inmates and their significant others from the hit series Love After Lockup, through their weird and wild journey to survive the real world together.
This season, viewers will be shocked to see which couples make it outside the prison walls and committing to their relationships. However, none of it will be easy because they must fight the temptations of the outside world while also learning to adapt to their new normal.
Couples this season include:
Daonte, Nicolle & Tia (Virginia Beach, VA / North Carolina)
As Daonte and Nicolle continue to work on their relationship, Nicolle also reconnects with her prison girlfriend, Tia, behind Daonte’s back, or so she thinks. Nicolle tries to maintain relationships with both, but how long will that last? When will Daonte say, enough is enough? Or will he?
HUGE spoiler revealing what happens with Daonte, Nicolle and Tia!
On tonight's #LoveAfterLockup, Nicolle revealed that she had a serious prison girlfriend named Tia that (of course) Daonte knows nothing about. Unlike Daonte, we do know all about Tia… her criminal history at least 😉 And LAWDY LAWD it is extensive! https://t.co/rzRuoP0hXe

Stan & Lisa (St. Louis, MO)
After a bumpy start to their relationship, Lisa and Stan try their best to make it work.

As the breadwinner of the family, Lacey’s income has taken a hit since giving birth to Summer. Then Shane quits his job to help with the kids, but when he dodges daddy duty and disappears all day, he may be keeping relationships – both in person and on social media – from Lacey. When those secrets get revealed, both Shane and Lacey revert to old habits that test their union and may challenge their happily ever after.

Shawn, Sara & Destinie (Las Vegas, NV / Cincinnati, OH)
While Shawn was pursuing Destinie, he was also communicating with another inmate, Sara. This time, Shawn believes Sara is the one and is ready to give up everything, including his family and career in pursuit of true love. Sara’s release date is fast approaching, but Shawn worries the same lies he told Destinie will catch up to him once again… and Sara has secrets of her own. Destinie has not stopped contacting Shawn and with her release imminent, can Shawn juggle both women?
