OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network has announced that its freshman dating and relationship series, “The Never Ever Mets,” will return for a second season. The renewal comes as the show’s season one finale aired on Friday, June 21.

Hosted by Ta’Rhonda Jones, an actor and musician, “The Never Ever Mets” features seven couples who have been virtually dating and now navigate the transition to real-world relationships.

It has consistently driven double-digit growth and has been viewed by nearly 4 million total viewers on the cable network so far.

Tina Perry, President of OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network, praised the show’s performance and its resonance with viewers, saying, “‘The Never Ever Mets’ clearly resonated with our audience and validated our decision to bring it back for a second season.”

The unique format of the series sees the couples, who previously only interacted online, move into the same house. They participate in a range of challenges and relationship-building exercises, facilitated by the host and relationship experts. These include couples’ therapy sessions and unconventional bonding activities, all designed to test whether their virtual connections can translate into offline love.
