Love After Lockup is one of the most popular reality shows of the year and has caused serious fan-devotion, especially among dedicated corners of the internet. Love After Lockup defies many expectations and has received strong reviews and generally positive reviews.
Fans love to chat and debate different aspects of the show, from the different personalities of the depicted couples to how they do it outside the camera. Read on to find out more about Love After Lockup, including what the show is about, the stars of the show and what fans have to say about whether one of the depicted players has actually been given an extensive punishment.
What is ‘Love After Lockup’ about?
Love After Lockup premiered in 2018 and has an interesting starting point. The show follows a handful of couples who enter into relationships for the first time, while a partner is trapped in a prison cell.
Once the party in question has been released, the couple have to solve several problems to determine whether their love can last or not or is doomed to fail. Some of the obstacles the couples explore include confrontations with family members (many of whom do not support the unconventional relationship very much) who experience ‘firsts’ such as big fights and travelling together.
The second season of Love After Lockup debuted on WE TV in the summer of 2019 and became popular with fans almost immediately. There is even such a strong support for the show that it has already been tapped to return for a third and possible fourth season.
Still, there is enough to unpack in season two, and viewers spend a lot of time dissecting every detail of the hit show in various online forums.
Who are the stars of ‘Love After Lockup’?
At the start of season two of Love After Lockup, seven couples were featured. Cheryl is a true crime lover and mother of three, who has been dating Josh for two years and is more than ready to enter into a ‘real’ relationship with him as soon as he is released. However, the biggest obstacle of this couple turns out to be non-supportive family members and those who don’t believe that their love is real.
Glorietta is an assistant to a nurse who has been dating prisoner Alex for eight months. But when he is released, his “secret past” turns out to be something that has the power to drive the ultimate wedge between the couple.
Lizzy and Daniel only went out for a week before he was put in jail, and although they have been dating for four years, the long distance and excitement of imprisonment has certainly taken its toll.
Angela and prisoner Tony began their relationship in season one of Love After Lockup, and have persisted despite the odds. However, season two has proved even more difficult, because Tony was not released as expected.
Lacey and John started dating in high school and returned to their relationship later in life. However, their romance was thrown a curveball when John was locked up, and the two have to try to find a way to make things work despite the difficulties.
Finally, the military man Vincent is in a relationship with prisoner Amber after writing several letters to various imprisoned women. The two struggle to get to the same page when dealing with doubtful family members.
Did one star of ‘Love After Lockup’ get an extended sentence?
Even if fans have followed the journey of the recommended couples, they are still looking forward to the coming season. Recently, a fan at Reddit unveiled a discussion with some cast members who seemed to be filming for a brand new season of Love After Lockup. And during the interview, the woman seemed to reveal that she was receiving extensive punishment. This may mean she’s only involved for half a season, rather than the entire season.
