Married At First Sight’s season finale is reportedly less than two weeks away.
According to industry website
While these airdates are not confirmed, it seems the most probable scenario given that Channel Nine has ‘locked in’ The Big Bang Theory to return on Tuesday, April 9.

Daily Mail Australia has contacted Channel Nine for comment.
TV Tonight editor David Knox reported on Tuesday that MAFS’ finale will allow programmers on rival networks to ‘breathe a huge sigh of relief’.
The controversial dating show has dominated ratings for weeks and has apparently been described in industry circles as a ‘wrecking ball’.
Since late January, the phenomenal success of MAFS has caused My Kitchen Rules’ audience to fall sharply on Channel Seven.
Meanwhile, Channel 10 has experienced a disaster start to the year with Changing Rooms performing so badly it was pulled from the schedule.
The network’s other new programs, including Chris & Julia’s Sunday Night Takeaway and Dancing with the Stars, have also rated well below expectations.
Married At First Sight has consistently delivered blockbuster ratings for Channel Nine over the past eight weeks.
The last commitment ceremony, which aired on Sunday night, reached jaw-dropping heights of 2.27 million viewers across the country.
The only other episode to rate higher nationally was part two of the 2018 season finale.
