‘Return to Amish,’ ‘Gypsy Sisters’ Renewed by TLC

Both reality series will premiere on May 31

“Return to Amish” and “Gypsy Sisters” have both been renewed by TLC, TheWrap has learned exclusively.

“Return to Amish” follows ex-Amish rebels Abe, Jeremiah, Kate, Rebecca and Sabrina as they return to the Amish world to face marriage, pregnancy, birth and the consequences of shunning. Abe’s parents, the rule-bending Amish matron Mary and the strictly religious Chester, serve as their hosts.

In the season premiere, Mary’s shunning by the Amish church continues, but Chester is in the process of making peace. Abe and Rebecca are raising their family, while coming to terms with the idea that their Amish past is getting further and further behind them.

In New York City, Kate continues to model, but she undergoes plastic surgery that could greatly affect her career. Jeremiah attempts to regain some of his heritage in order to stabilize his life, and Katie Ann starts to feel a pull back toward the English life she once flirted with.

Chapel deals with an unknown future, and Andrew throws her and the rest of the family for a loop by getting himself back into trouble.

On “Gypsy Sisters” Mellie Stanley, best known for her stripping and violent temper on “My Big Fat American Gypsy Wedding,” returns with her sister Nettie, cousin Kayla, and Annie for a look at life as a gypsy in the wilds of West Virginia.

In the first episode of “Gypsy Sisters,” the girls are settling into their new living situations as Kayla enjoys her single life, Mellie prepares for a new baby, and Nettie and Joann adjust to having Mellie out of their house.

Things aren’t all sweet, though, and at Mellie’s baby shower, tempers flare as Nettie and Kayla fight over what Mellie should name her baby.

“Return to Amish” and “Gypsy Sisters” will premiere back-to-back on May 31 at 9pm/8c.

“Breaking Amish” is produced by Hot Snakes Media for TLC. “Gypsy Sisters” is produced by Firecracker Films for TLC.
