Then, the highly anticipated return of SEEKING SISTER WIFE promises drama, twists and divorces as two families return and three new couples begin their search for a sister wife. March brings a new season of RETURN TO AMISH, where painful pasts and hopeful futures collide for the group of Amish (and formerly Amish) as they navigate life on the outside.

SISTER WIVES – Premieres on TLC on Sunday, February 14 at 10pm ET/PT
Last season, Kody Brown, his four wives – Meri, Janelle, Christine and Robyn – and their families relocated to Flagstaff, Arizona where they hoped to start an exciting new chapter of their lives. Little did they know that settling down in temporary homes before breaking ground on the land they purchased would be harder than they thought. This season, we see the Browns continuing to work through their new lifestyle of living apart from one another and the stressful decisions they must make about their future home. Like the rest of the world, COVID-19 puts an extra strain on the family and the Browns’ big gatherings and large parties that brought the family together are now a thing of the past.

OUTDAUGHTERED – Premieres on TLC on Tuesday, February 23 at 8pm ET/PT
Viewers pick up with the Busby family and America’s first all-female quintuplets months after the family, and the country, went into quarantine. Now, the family is emerging with five-year-old Ava, Olivia, Parker, Hazel and Riley and their nine-year-old big sister Blayke to a new normal with plenty of new experiences in store, including a crash course in riding bikes, taking an RV trip to the wilderness and the quints starting kindergarten. There will also be celebrations galore, whether it’s a homemade, backyard haunted maze for Halloween or a socially distant visit with Santa. The Busbys always find ways to make things special for their girls, no matter the circumstances; however, an unknown and painful health issue that’s been haunting Super Mom Danielle for years has become unbearable, and her search for answers could lead her down a scary path.

Jeremiah and his wife Carmella are back, with Jeremiah on the hunt for his biological family, but false leads and tragedy threaten to derail his search. Sabrina returns as well, and this time she’s juggling a fourth pregnancy and her relationship with the father, Jethro, and also celebrating a year of sobriety. Viewers will be introduced to Rosanna and Maureen as they leave their tight-knit Amish communities for the first time, traveling to join Jeremiah, Carmella and Sabrina to experience many “firsts” in the non-Amish world. Rosanna’s sheltered life hasn’t prepared her to deal with the stress of the English, or non-Amish, world, but she’s determined to soak up her new surroundings. Maureen is similarly excited to experience the English world, and a budding relationship has the potential to help her acclimate even faster.
