It’s Australia’s most talked about social experiment, so it’s no surprise Married At First Sight Australia is back for another season in 2022.

WATCH: First look at MAFS 2022

Last season there was no shortage of bubble baths, mentions of “secret girlfriends” and break ups.

The only two couples still going strong are Kerry and Johnny who have officially moved in together, as well as Melissa and Bryce who have recently welcomed twin boys and are gearing up to head down the aisle.

With no doubt plenty of drama, and *hopefully* some success stories on the horizon in the new year, MAFS season nine is due to hit Channel Nine on January 31st, 2022.

Along with the premiere date, fans also got a first look at the reality show – and it’s just as dramatic as you’d expect.

Set on New Year’s eve, the video starts with a dark and mysterious shot of a woman sitting in a high-rise apartment with a glorious view of the city night life below.

“Millions of people are preparing for a spectacular fireworks show,” a voiceover says, before the clip cuts to a man donning a suit jacket in his own apartment.

“As midnight approaches, time is quickly running out to find your one true love.”

At this point, a bunch of brides and grooms are seen running down the city as Addicted To Love by Robert Palmer plays in the background.

One groom even rips open some caution tape to get to his destination. Well, they say you’ll do anything for love.

Cut to the original bride and groom on a rooftop as the clock ticks closer to midnight.

They dramatically stare at each other before sharing a New Year’s kiss.

Oh, and there’s a shot of fireworks, as well as the hairs on an arm raising.

All we can say is, if the ninth season is as dramatic as this teaser, MAFS fans are in for a treat.
