‘The Never Ever Mets’ 

OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network introduces “The Never Ever Mets,” a groundbreaking relationship series merging online romance with reality. 

Premiering Friday, April 19 at 8 pm ET/PT and hosted by Ta’Rhonda Jones, the show brings together seven couples who’ve fostered love online but have never met in person. 

As they embark on a three-week cohabitation experiment, sparks fly and challenges arise. 

While some connections blossom, others falter under the scrutiny of face-to-face interaction. 

Through relationship activities, therapy sessions, and unexpected revelations, these couples confront the true nature of their virtual bonds.

In the premiere episode, “Offline and Off the Rails,” viewers witness the highs and lows of initial meetings. 

From the long-awaited reunion of Josh and Shay to Sandia’s doubts about her online beau, Chris, and Dymond’s confronting questions for Aaron H., each couple faces unique hurdles on the path to real-world love—or heartbreak. 

Tune in to witness love unfold, both on and off the screen.
