Back in 2020, cast member Big Ed Brown went viral for putting mayonnaise in his hair and insulting his ex-fiance Rose Vega, but the franchise has been part of TLC since 2014, to the point that Warner Bros. Discovery referred to it as the 90 Day Fiance Universe during an earnings call.
Thanks to a Warner Bros. Discovery video, the jokes began rolling out, highlighting the vast franchises currently available to anyone with a Discovery+ or HBO Max subscription.
Moments of peace right now. So excited to see cultural icons like Batman, Wonder Woman, and Game of Thrones finally take their places alongside Shark Week and the 90 Day Fiance universe.
90 Day Fiance is a good film, especially if you like the Harry Potter, Game of Thrones, and DC franchises. Others thought it was odd to see it in the lineup:
What the 90 Day Fiance Universe is doing up there with HARRY POTTER AND BATMAN, anyway? http://y5cueC92FrAugust 4, 2022:
Other creatives who contributed to some of the Warner Bros. Discovery series offered their opinions, such as Game of Thrones executive producer Bryan Cogman, who made a snarky comment about standing on equal ground with the TLC franchise:
Who knew that ten years ago, when season 1 was being planned in that tiny makeshift office in West Hollywood, that one day we would be listed alongside the 90 Day Fiance Universe? Dream big, kids!
I'm happy for 90DF followers, but I never needed to see the term "90 Day Fiance Universe." https://t.co/iueCre2Hhb August 4, 2022
90 Day Fiance had enough shows to make a universe, and there were others who were just plain surprised:
Wait, there's more than one 90-day boyfriend? A universe you say?!August 4, 2022
The 90 Day Fiance universe has a wealth of crossovers, comparable to the MCU's hero shows and movies, and it's unlikely that any Avengers-style ensemble spinoff will happen anytime soon, though the cast list for the forthcoming Season 7 of Happily Ever After?may be as close as we ever get.

The general public may soon realize the importance of 90 Day Fiance, especially since Warner Bros. Discovery has featured it prominently alongside other big franchises. They may even be able to appreciate the time former cast member Stephanie Mattos fart jar-selliing empire went up in flames after a visit to the emergency room.
On Sundays at 8:00 p.m. ET, 90 Day Fiance airs on TLC. The flagship series is right at the tail-end of its latest season, but a fresh season of the spinoff Happily Ever After? is on the way.
