TLC has renewed its controversial show, Breaking Amish, for a second season that will feature the entire original cast.
In a press release posted at TVByTheNumbers, TLC said that the show’s second season will feature eight hour-long episodes.
Abe, Rebecca, Kate, Sabrina and Jeremiah will make their way to Florida this time, where they will have to acclimate to new lives again. The network promises more enemies and family members with their own reasons for being there. There will be surprise visits and major career decisions for the members of the cast.
Breaking Amish scored the best ratings for a freshman season in TLC history, averaging 3.2 million viewers, even with all the controversy surrounding it. In the first season, the cast went to New York City.
According to Deadline, the show was criticized almost from the beginning for not being 100 percent unscripted.
Back in September, the network admitted that some of the show is made up for television, but other elements are real. There were also two reunion specials on TLC that still didn’t answer everyone’s questions about Breaking Amish’s authenticity.
Hot Snakes Media produces the show for TLC.
