In the latest indication that the 90 Day Fiance franchise is fizzling out, TLC has announced the cast for 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After Season 7.
The series will include six returning couples as they navigate the next chapter of their relationships, and honestly, some of these cast members have had too many chapters for the tired storylines they've been peddling.
We have Angela and Michael, Elizabeth and Andrei, Jovi and Yara, Ed and Liz, Jenny and Summit, & Kim and Usman.
Angela and Michael's story hasn't progressed in years, and beyond the contrived drama between them, there doesn't even seem to be a relationship.
Every conversation ends with Angela yelling down the phone and accusing Michael of things, so why bother?
It's tough to be invested in these storylines.
Elizabeth and Andrei do always seem to have something going on, but it's almost always thanks to the in-fighting between Elizabeth's family.
They do know how to make trashy TV, so I'll give them that, but please, let's hope they all moved on from fighting about Andre flipping houses.
Jovi and Yara will have their third season on the show, and I'm not sure they need it.
As for Ed and Liz, if The Single Life proved anything, it's that only one of this duo has feelings for the other.
Jenny and Sumit did have some great storylines initially, but it's hard to get invested when there are little stakes.
Kim was pretty much a super fan who fell for Usman and it didn't seem like he was interested in her.
Scroll down to find out what TLC is sharing about their storylines.
Elizabeth, 31 (Tampa, FL) and Andrei, 35 (Moldova)
Things are looking up for Elizabeth and Andrei. The pair is moving up in the world: they’ve bought a home, Andrei is settling into work and Libby is considering a career change to pursue her lifelong passion for music.
However, tensions are mounting amidst concerns that Andrei is cutting Libby off from her family.
Andrei’s relationship with her family has always been rocky, but when an unexpected—and atypical—green card interview is demanded of Andrei, the couple is left wondering if someone is trying to sabotage their happiness—and potentially get him deported.
Jovi, 31 (New Orleans, LA) and Yara, 27 (Ukraine)
While Jovi and Yara love being parents to baby Mylah, Yara is combating postpartum insecurities and their relationship has changed.
Yara is also battling a particularly tough bout of homesickness, and the couple considers a visit to Ukraine—but everything changes when the Russia-Ukraine War breaks out.

Against a backdrop of so much turmoil, will this couple be able to find any peace?

But, between the couple’s jealousy and family troubles, everyone wonders: will they or won’t they walk down the aisle?

The cat’s out of the bag: Jenny and Sumit are married, and the groom’s family is not happy to hear it.
Sumit’s relatives refuse to acknowledge their nuptials as Jenny grows more and more homesick.
With their marriage off to a rocky start, Sumit is focused on finding a way to repair his relationship with his family.

Will Jenny & Sumit be able to find common ground, or are their lives going in separate directions?
Kim, 51 (San Diego, CA) and Usman, 33 (Nigeria)

Kim’s son Jamal worries that she’s moving too fast, while Usman’s mother frets about him marrying an older woman who is not able to have children.
As her stay in Nigeria continues, Kim learns the hard way that two’s company and three’s a crowd as the prospect of Usman taking a second wife looms.
Adamant that she must be his first wife, Kim is frustrated by Usman’s family’s determination to set him up with a younger woman before she marries him.
