Season Premiere Sunday, April 30 at 8PM ET/PT on TLC
TLC’s “RETURN TO AMISH” follows the lives of Mary, Abe, Rebecca, Sabrina, Jeremiah and Carmela. As they continue to acclimate to a new culture after leaving their Amish community behind, the crew is realizing life doesn’t get any easier over time. Six new two-hour episodes will dive into the heavy choices and struggles the ex-Amish must overcome to survive in the new world they entered into several years ago.
This season, the gang faces their greatest challenges yet. Mary finds herself at a crossroads with some of the Punxsutawney Amish when an elder denies her access to her own father’s funeral. Feeling betrayed, Mary decides to try a number of the English activities she’s always resisted. But will her husband Chester get caught between his wife and his community?
The struggle to keep a family together doesn’t stop there. Sabrina is pregnant with her second child and in a renewed custody battle for her daughter, Oakley. Against Abe’s wishes, Rebecca seeks to get her GED in an effort to become a more independent woman, sparking tension between the two. Newlyweds Jeremiah and Carmela find themselves struggling with their marriage as they try to move cross country and start their own family.
With Abe and Rebecca refusing to speak with Sabrina, and Jeremiah and Carmela already at odds in the first year of marriage, the group is as splintered as ever. Now Mary is taking it upon herself to bring everyone back together as the strong family they once were.
