The Ultimatum: Married or Move On is returning for a second season, which means five couples will once again take a very personal decision—whether or not to spend the rest of their lives together—and hash it out on Netflix.
The premise is simple (and by “simple” we mean “unhinged”): One person in each relationship is ready to settle down and the other is wavering, so in order to gain clarity, the couple breaks up, swaps partners for three weeks and embarks on a journey of self-discovery. In some cases, that journey leads to a proposal; in others, it leads to the end of the road (or an entirely new romance).
Read on to meet the Season 2 cast and more.

Who is cast in The Ultimatum Season 2?
Ryann and James
Ryann and James, both 24, started dating when they were just 16 years old. Now the former prom queen and football player have to decide whether they're meant to be together forever—or if "high-school sweethearts" is as far as they'll go.
Riah and Trey
Trey, 29, has his finances and career in order, and he's ready to start a marriage as idyllic as the one his parents have. But Riah, 25, isn't so sure. She feels the romance in their relationship is lacking, and she didn't have quite the same upbringing Trey did.
Roxanne and Antonio
Roxanne, a 31-year-old founder and CEO, is ambitious and career-driven—and she's not convinced that Antonio is on her level. Meanwhile, the 30-year-old freight broker—the one who issued the ultimatum—is longing for more attention from his partner.
Lisa and Bryan
Bryan, a 29-year-old financial analyst, might be willing to settle down with his girlfriend of 1.5 years, Lisa, but he has concerns over her jealousy issues, which are on full display in the Season 2 trailer (see below).
