Unfortunately, viewers might have to wait longer for a new season since it is being reported that the ongoing government shut down may delay filming. In case you forgot, the show follows foreign fiancés who come to the United States on a K-1 and have 90 days to decide whether they want to get married — and if the government is not running, there are no visas to hand out.
“It could cause significant delays in visa processing, and it’s going to be a new challenge for reality producers looking to cast the upcoming seventh season,” a source told Page Six. “The casting process is going on right now. In a sense, it’s holding up production, because without a locked-down cast, we can’t film.”
The insider continued, “The stories are contingent on a good cast, so it’s harder to find available couples, because it’s following people who have already been approved. The wait is longer.”
