WE tv has FINALLY officially announced the full cast and a premiere date for the new season of their Love After Lockup spin-off Life After Lockup! PLUS, we now have the first extended preview trailer with all EIGHT couples!
That’s right, Season 6 (by my best estimate) of Life After Lockup will feature no fewer than eight couples — only three of which are new to the follow-up series. Seven of the couples were leaked in May, and earlier this month it was confirmed that Britney and Ray would also be coming back.
A reality series with eight different couples seems like a bit much, but WE tv will make it a little more feasible with 90-minute episodes each week.
We will start with the extended preview trailer, followed by details from the network’s press release announcing the new season. Those details include bios for each of the couples featured. The new season is set to premiere Friday, July 29 at 9/8c.
“Life After Lockup” follows nine former inmates and their significant others from the hit series “Love After Lockup” through their weird and wild journey to survive the real world. This season’s new couples face travel limitations and restrictions on consorting with old connections, temptations of alcohol and drugs. Returning couples deal with the growing pains of adjusting to love, family and marriage while juggling the emotional challenges of life on the outside. Will they stay together and stay out of prison?

Chance has been in and out of prison his entire adult life but can the future he is planning with Tayler and the girls keep him out of prison for good?

These newlyweds face their first challenge immediately — distance. Branwin’s parole restrictions require her to stay in Portland, and Chazz has a job he takes very seriously back in La Grange, KY. Once they’re able to be together, Chazz’s sister struggles to accept their relationship, and Branwin’s daughter and friends think Chazz and the move are a bad idea. Meanwhile, Branwin’s bad-boy ex Aaron might also have something to say about this new marriage.
KEVIN AND TIFFANY
Kevin agrees to Tiffany’s wish to investigate a threesome, but Kevin’s playboy lifestyle is hard to ignore when Tiffany finds women’s underwear in his bedroom. Even as they struggle to find a lane for their love, Kayla, the woman who will not let Kevin go, stirs up the drama.
