It is common sense to understand that getting back with an old flame is very much a bad idea. If it didn’t work out the first time around (not counting the breakups in between), what are the chances that it’ll work out the second time? And doing this in front of the TV with millions of viewers? Well, this will take a lot of nerve to do that. But it sounds interesting, right?
To those who haven’t watched this show, simply put ‘Back with the Ex’ is an Australian reality show that is exactly what the contestants on the series are trying to do. Yep, the ex-lovers will try to rekindle their relationship and see how things go.
Now, if you’re curious to find out whether or not this interesting reality series will be back for another season, here’s what we know about it.

Back with the Ex Release Date: When is it?
Because the reality series is canceled, an official release for season two of ‘Back with the Ex’ is never confirmed. The series was released on April 18, 2018, on Seven Network. Season one consisted of seven episodes in total.
Although it’s been four years since the first season came out and not a single word heard from the show makers proves that indeed the show has no further plans for another season of Back with the Ex. However, you can always watch the first season. The seven-episode season is currently available to watch on Netflix.
What is the plot of Back with the Ex?
The Australian reality series was launched on April 18, 2018, on Seven Network, and in January 2019, on Netflix.
As Netflix’s official synopsis says, “New beginnings or old baggage? Four (pairs of) singles have one chance to reignite romance with an ex — or leave the past behind for good.” The series premiered on the Australian Seven Network in April 2018, and on Netflix in January 2019.”
The couples introduced to the show in its first season comprises four couples (eight persons) namely:
Jeremy, 28, and Meg, 26
Cam, 24, and Kate, 22
Erik 32, and Lauren, 36
Diane 50, and Peter, 57
Had there been a second season of Back with the Ex, it would have followed the same concept and welcomed new couples and of course a bit of drama. But the show has come to an end for good and there won’t be any more new seasons in the future.
