Couples Retreat season 3 will premiere on May 2, but why is it not airing on VH1? The series has switched to its sister network, MTV.

Love is complicated, but things are getting a whole messier on season 3 of Couples Retreat. Six celebrity pairs will be hashing out their romance issues with a series of adrenaline-packed challenges.

Ranging from zip lining to survival training, we can already hear the terrified screams.

The cast will be transported to Sin City, but that’s not the only change. Initially called VH1 Couples Retreat, the reality show has been renamed MTV Couples Retreat as it moves to the sister network.

Here’s why the series has received a minor tweak.

Why is Couples Retreat not on VH1?

The relationship series is no longer on VH1 due to Paramount’s latest joint venture with Lashan Browning’s Antoinette Media, which is described as a full-service production company.

VH1’s Couple Retreat is moving to MTV to “find new audiences”, reports Deadline. Both VH1 and MTV are under Paramount Global.

Despite the move, the format of Couples Retreat isn’t expected to receive major changes since Browning has served as executive producer since its 2021 premiere.

Along with other affected unscripted programs, Couples Retreat will be broadcasted on MTV as part of May’s Tuesday Night Takeover.

Fan favorite Love & Hip Hop Atlanta‘s Run It Back will kick off the schedule on Tuesday, May 2 at 7pm, followed by Couples Retreat at 9pm.

Caught In The Act: Unfaithful season 2, which previously debuted on VH1, will land in the summer.
