Married at First Sight fans, the wait is almost over.

The sixth season of Lifetime’s hit reality show (produced by Kinetic Content) — in which six singles meet their spouses for the first time as they exchange vows on their wedding day — is debuting in January, PEOPLE confirms exclusively.

And on the latest season, the newlyweds will be based in Boston. As usual, fans will see the first moment they meet, their honeymoon and their daily struggles as they move in with a complete stranger who is now legally tied to them.

At the end of the experiment, each couple will decide if they want to remain married or file for divorce.

This season, Dr. Jessica Griffin, a psychologist based in Boston, will be featured on the show along with sociologist Dr. Pepper Schwartz and Pastor Calvin Roberson as the series’ panel of experts.

Though many of the series’ couples have called it quits on and after the show, MAFS‘ season 1 alums Jamie Otis and Doug Hehner had the happiest of endings this summer when they welcomed a daughter in August.

The sixth season premieres on Tuesday, Jan. 2 at 9 p.m. EST after Married at First Sight: Matchmaking Special.
