Looks like Usman has found love again after his split from "baby girl Lisa." The trailer for the upcoming season of 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days dropped on Monday and features Usman's surprise return, and he is once again romancing a significantly older American woman.

Cameras previously followed Usman's relationship with Lisa, who is 23 years older than him. The two ended up getting married in Nigeria, but last December, he said he filed for divorce though she didn't want to accept it. Usman, who is a musician known as "Soja Boy," is now meeting up with 50-year-old Kim, who's from San Diego, California.

Kim is divorced and reached out to Usman on social media because she's a fan of his music. The two chatted for months, and now Kim is completely in love with Usman. Usman is a little more hesitant given his experience with Lisa, but invited her to Tanzania where he's shooting a music video. Kim is risking everything for love and heading to Tanzania in hopes that Usman will realize she is nothing like his ex-wife and decide to commit to taking their relationship to the next level.  

"I flew halfway around the world to meet the man of my dreams," Kim says in the trailer about 32-year-old Usman. "I messaged him and he messaged me back and I was like, 'Oh my god.' And then that's how I fell in love with international superstar Usman aka Soja Boy."

But much like Lisa, Kim has a temper. At one point, she heatedly asks him why he brought her to a video shoot about another woman. When he laughs, she throws a glass of water in his face.

"Is this f**king funny, too?" she asks him. "F**k you."

Another standout couple this season is 28-year-old Caleb and 27-year-old Alina. The two connected and developed a friendship on social media as teens, but they lost touch for 13 years until they matched on a dating app when Caleb was planning a trip to Alina's home country of Russia. Those plans fell through, but their newly rekindled friendship blossomed into a romance. Now, they're finally ready to meet for the first time to see if their emotional connection is deep enough to overcome their physical differences. Alina is a little person, and her condition prevents her from walking and standing for long periods of time, so she frequently relies on a wheelchair, making Caleb, a free-spirit, wondering if he'll be able to adjust to her needs. 

"Alina and I have a deep connection," Caleb says. "But I'm worried about what other people would say is a massive difference between us."

Alina is shown nervously ready to greet him at the airport and tells cameras, "I'm scared he's going to see me in a wheelchair and he's going to go, 'Ew.'"

Another couple sure to get plenty of attention is 29-year-old Ella, a country girl from Idaho with a self-proclaimed obsession with Asian culture, and 34-year-old Johnny from China. Ella met her "Asian prince" on a social media platform exclusively for Asian men and white women. After a year and a half of trying to meet up, they're finally preparing for Johnny to visit Ella in her hometown and get engaged. But Ella's history with rejection from past romantic interests due to her weight has her worried that he might not like her when he sees her in person.

In the trailer, Johnny's mom asks him if she eats a lot, and he replies, "Well, it's America. They eat desserts."

Bridgerton is about to get even sexier.

Netflix's hit Regency drama, adapted from Julia Quinn's bestselling romance novels, dropped its official first look at the anticipated second season, which shifts its focus to the eldest Bridgerton sibling, Anthony (Jonathan Bailey), as he embarks on a quest to find a wife. 

Bailey was joined Saturday for Netflix's virtual fan event, TUDUM, by fellow co-stars Nicola Coughlan and new cast members Simone Ashley, who plays Kate Sharma, Anthony's love interest reimagined from Quinn's book, The Viscount Who Loved Me, and newcomer Charithra Chandran, who plays Edwina Sharma, Kate's younger sister.

The first look begins with Anthony going after Kate and asking her for her name.

"So you might discern if my wit is acceptable, my manners genteel?" she quips, as Anthony asks her if she was eavesdropping on his conversation about, as Kate calls them, "the many requirements for a wife."

"You take issue with my requirements," Anthony follows up, with Kate answering, "I take issue with any man who views women merely as chattels and breeding stock."

The chemistry is undeniable, even with the witty back and forth. See the full clip below.

Watch the official teaser for season 2 below.

Recently, Coughlan spoke with ET's Lauren Zima to offer an intriguing glimpse into what lies ahead in season 2 for the Ton, teasing that "the chemistry [between Bailey and Ashley] is quite major, I can say that." She also added that the season has "got a whole lot spicier."

Back in January, Bailey revealed that the next installment in the family's story is going to be "sexier."

“It’s just going to get more exciting and convoluted and sexier, I think,” the actor told ET at the time, adding Bridgerton will surely “be pushing boundaries every single way.” But what he does know for sure is “that the story is going to be really exciting.” 

“Having read the second book, if Anthony gets to meet anyone half as brilliant as Kate Sheffield is, then he’s going to be a very lucky man," Bailey also hinted.

The Viscount Who Loved Me, which focuses solely on Anthony and Kate's courtship, is expected to be the main source for the new episodes. But like season 1, which included characters and subplots from later novels, the series will likely not be strictly limited to one book per season. 

“I think [showrunner] Chris Van Dusen has got this amazing ability to take Julia Quinn’s extraordinary books and her amazing worlds that she delicately filled with excitement and sexiness. And he takes it to a whole other level,” Bailey said, when asked how much the new season will parallel the narrative in the books. “So the fact that we’re following Anthony’s pursuit for love shows that you know there’s definitely going to be some similarities.”

Rachael Leigh Cook and Matthew Lillard are looking back at filming their iconic teen movie, She's All That. ET's Lauren Zima spoke to the pair ahead of the film's reboot, He's All That, debuting on Netflix on Aug. 27, and they spilled some behind-the-scenes details. Cook and Lillard appear in the reboot, though not as their original characters, art nerd Lainey Boggs and reality star Brock Hudson. The 1999 film had plenty of now-familiar faces, including Freddie Prinze Jr., Gabrielle Union, Lil' Kim, Milo Ventimiglia and the late Paul Walker. "I knew that I was in a really talented group, that's for sure," Cook says, looking back. "But did I think we would be in a reimagining 20 years later because that many people saw the movie? Look, I think that so many people in our version of the movie were huge successes in their own rights already at that point, so in that sense I don't think we can take any credit for it, but I certainly didn't know we'd be here, that's for sure."  Lillard adds, "Listen, when you're young and you're coming up in this industry, you're just trying to prove yourself and you don't know what movie is gonna be good and what movie is gonna be bad ... you just never expect anytime, like, how great is this movie gonna be? You just want to do the best you can and be the best actor you can."Cook and Lillard definitely have great memories from filming, including Cook revealing that the late Walker dated a woman on set.    "I think I remember that Paul, rest in peace, went on some dates with Jodie [Lyn O'Keefe's] stand-in," she says. "Not Jodi. Yeah, so I remember Lil' Kim was there, I remember that we were all pretty jealous of her multiple looks and hair pieces, they were wonderful."When it comes to filming He's All That, Cook shares that Dulé Hill, who played the popular Preston in She's All That, has a special connection with Tanner Buchanan, who plays Cameron Kweller -- the male version of Cook's character. "Tanner Buchanan, who is in this one, and Dulé Hill are both expert tap dancers," she shares. "And Dulé was always tap dancing while we had a little break on set whenever we were filming ours and, yeah, Tanner was throwing on tap shoes whenever he had some time between scenes. I thought that was really cute."Cook and Lillard share that there's plenty of nods in He's All That to its predecessor, including an epic dance sequence. This should come as no surprise given star Addison Rae's well-known dance skills on TikTok."It's so good, I just love it," Cook says. "Listen everybody, you should check out this movie because it's just delightful. But if you aren't feeling it for whatever reason, don't miss the dance-off. Fast forward and get to it, it's good I promise.""I mean, those kids are so great, they're incredible," Lillard also gushes. "And now I follow them on TikTok! I'm TikToking... Addison Rae inspired greatness in me, so I'm coming for them and I'm gonna get to their numbers and she's gonna have some competition in that space."Another cute nod to the original is Rae wearing a red dress. When it comes to Cook's own memorable red dress in the makeover scene of She's All That, she says she doesn't know what became of it."I don't have the dress," she notes. "I'm not a costume expert, but... I think it was mostly [nylon] and polyester, so it's probably disintegrated by this point.""I didn't save anything [from the movie]," she adds. "I probably have a script and a call sheet in a box somewhere but I don't think I saved any physical items."But some things last forever -- like Lillard's hilarious tattoo in the film."I do have that tattoo, that same tattoo that says 'me,' it's still there," Lillard shares. "I was very method at the early stages of my career."Cook says she did speak to Prinze Jr. (Zack Siler) about appearing in the reboot, but it didn't end up working out."I did talk to Freddie about it briefly, he was in talks with the producers and I think he considered it, but didn't feel like there was a way that he could be organically involved with the script as it existed," she shares.  "But I was really happy that Matt wanted to do the movie, because I didn't want to be the only one."Cook and Lillard are still friends, and note that even when seeing each other after a long period of time, their relationship remains unchanged."The weird thing about this business, that someone told me about on [my] first film 100 years ago, is that being in a movie is like being in a marriage with a built-in divorce. You sort of fall in love and feel like a family, and then go your separate ways," she says.Lillard adds, "But the good thing about when you see each other it's like no time has passed. And you're friends."He's All That streams on Netflix on Aug. 27.ET spoke to Prinze Jr. in December about the reboot, and he said he was all for it."People forget, I saw on social media somebody wrote, 'How dare they remake She's All That?' I'm like, man, it's good with me. We were a remake of a remake of a play!" Prinze Jr. shared. "We were good with it and we gotta be good with it, too. Every generation should have their version of art that they connect to. I hope people aren't angry about it because if you want to go see it, cool. If you don't, cool.""But it's for the next generation and we should be excited for that, that a story had that much of an impact that this business thinks they can make money on it again," he continued.ET was on the set of the 1999 film, and Prinze Jr. gushed about Cook looking "stunning" during the film's makeover scene.
