Plot Synopsis

Each one-hour episode of WIFE SWAP takes two families from very different walks of life and switches spouses, regardless of sex, to discover there is often more that unites us than divides us. The families face contemporary hot-button issues such as politics, classism, gender and race with the end goal of finding common ground. During each swap, the new spouses must at first adhere to exactly the same rules and lifestyle of the spouses being replaced -- including homes, child-rearing, chores, hobbies, lifestyles and careers, before introducing their own ideas and beliefs into their new households. At the end, both couples meet face-to-face and discuss what they learned from the swap and how their new experiences will shape their lives, habits and homes in the future. This revival of the original WIFE SWAP, was originally set to debut on CMT, but instead had its series premiere on Paramount Network on Thursday, April 4, 2019 at 9pm ET/PT. In the series opener, "Benner vs. McMichael," an obsessive perfectionist wife with kids who act like grownups, swaps lives with a fun-loving, stay-at-home dad who thinks life is all about play.
The 20-episode sophomore season of WIFE SWAP premiered on Thursday, February 13, 2020 at 9pm ET/PT on Paramount, with new families, new drama, and new revelations. In the season opener, "Akinbode vs Mullis," A no-nonsense Nigerian mom who raises her kids in a strict culture of respect swaps lives with an overwhelmed mom whose disconnected husband and spoiled kids run the house.
