Married at First Sight is headed to the sunny shores of San Diego for season 15!

The hit matchmaking series is returning to Lifetime on July 6, with a special three-hour season premiere — and PEOPLE has the first look at the ten Southern California-based singles hoping for lasting love, as well as the professionals ready to provide them with support along the way.

Relationship experts Pastor Cal and Dr. Pepper will be joined this season by DeVon Franklin and and Dr. Pia Holec. Franklin is a Hollywood producer, New York Times bestselling author and relationship advisor, while Holec is a renowned psychotherapist who specializes in sex and couples' therapy. Due to other projects, Dr. Viviana Coles will not be back this season.

Like with previous seasons of MAFS, after each couple ties the knot, they'll head out on a honeymoon, move in together and finally make a decision between happily ever after and divorce.

Lindy, 29, is a doctor of physical therapy, and Miguel, 35, is an associate medical director.

Lindy grew up in Olympia, Washington, and has had two serious relationships, one of which included an engagement. She has been single now for nearly two years. Originally from Manhattan, New York, Miguel relocated to Puerto Rico when he was 10 years old following his parents' divorce. He considers himself a serial monogamist.

Krysten and Mitch

Krysten, 32, is a sales rep, while Mitch, 41, is an environmental policy advocate.

Krysten was born and raised in Virginia Beach, Virginia, and is very close with her entire family. She has always dreamed about having children and starting a family of her own. Krysten was engaged four years ago and almost got married. Since then, she has struggled to find a genuine connection. Mitch grew up in Los Angeles and was only 3 years old when his parents divorced. His parents' relationship had a profound impact on how he views love, and he is terrified of repeating their mistakes. In the past, Mitch hasn't been one for long-term relationships, but is hoping MAFS will change that.

Mallory Kessel

Stacia is 37 and an accountant, while Nate, 34, works as a day trader.

"Unconventional" Stacia was born in Lynwood, California, to a young single mother. Her grandmother stepped in to help raise her and loved her unconditionally. Stacia refuses to settle and has been ready for marriage for quite some time, but she is admittedly extremely picky and has high standards. Originally from Las Vegas, Nate grew up with a single father and has always felt that his purpose in life is to find love and build an empire with a wife and family. Although he enjoys his career, he is struggling to find a partner to match his ambitious mindset.

Morgan, 27, is a registered nurse, and Binh, 29, is an engineer.

Morgan was born and raised in Bakersfield, California. As a nurse, she has become adept at being flexible and knows to always expect the unexpected, which has prepared her well for an opportunity like Married at First Sight. She is at a point in her life where she is ready to settle down. A first generation Asian American, Binh's parents met at a refugee camp in New Orleans, after fleeing Vietnam. He says they fell in love at first sight and hopes to one day have a similar bond with his future wife and children.

Married at First Sight premieres with a three-hour episode on July 6 at 8 p.m. ET on Lifetime.
