There will be some familiar faces in the case, which will be good news to audiences that wondered what happened to their favorite couples. The new cast members will be facing all kinds of obstacles to happily-ever-after including a pregnancy, religious differences, and major cultural differences, such as a lack of plumbing. TLC is also featuring a same-sex couple who will be enduring possible homophobia and rejection by family in Mexico. 

Let's meet the new cast of 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way: Season 2:

Deavan and Jihoon will be returning.

Fans of the first season will recognize Deavan and Jihoon right away. Deavan is a mom from Utah who met her now-husband Jihoon on an international dating app. When he came for a visit to the US, she got pregnant on their first night together. They cared about one another enough to make a go of their relationship and made plans for Deavan and her young daughter from a prior relationship to move to South Korea.

There were some complications along the way, however: Jihoon lived with his parents and didn't have a steady job. Instead, he bought and resold used cell phones, a pasttime that had landed him in trouble with the law for selling stolen goods. They got married but Deavan returned to the U.S. for some time and while Jihoon also joined them for a while, according to her social media accounts, they eventually decided to move back to his country. In the trailer, Deavan complains that she doesn't think Jihoon has plans to support the whole family, which now includes their son as well as her daughter from a previous relationship.

Jenny and Sumit will also be back.

Jenny and Sumit are the couple many fans would like to know more about since the last season ended. Their relationship started out as a catfish; Sumit was using a fake name and photo to chat online with Americans. He developed real feelings for Jenny, despite her being 30 years older than he is and came clean with his real identity. She liked the real Sumit even better than the fake version and made plans to go to India to marry him — except that he didn't tell her that he was already married.

Sumit had already been paired off in an arranged marriage but hopes to divorce his wife; he just didn't tell Jenny any of that until she as already in India. Without a legal marriage, she had to return to the U.S. Now she's back in India but the trust issues between them haven't been fully resolved.

A new same-sex couple will be featured. 

90 Day Fiancé made franchise history when they featured Erika and Stephanie on Before The 90 Days. In the past, all the couples of the show had been opposite-sex partners. For their second same-sex couple, TLC selected Kenneth and Armando. The two men in an online group for gay dads and fell for one another.

Kenneth, a Floridian, is 57 and plans to move to Mexico to be with Armando who is only 31 years old. While they seem very much in love. Armando can be seen cautioning his husband-to-be that Mexico isn't very progressive when it comes to homosexuality.

Religion may come between one couple.

Brittany and Yazan met through Yazan's sister and it was love at first videochat. Brittany is from Florida and now plans to move to Jordan for Yazan, though there are going to be cultural obstacles for this pair. Brittany is not religious at all and doesn't plan to convert to Islam for her more devout fiancé.

Moreover, his family has issues with them being intimate before the wedding and won't let them live together. There is also allegedly something Brittan hasn't told Yazan that could put their whole future in doubt.
