Once again, TLC promotesBreaking Amish as a series about five sheltered young adults, four Amish and one Mennonite, who leave their communities to experience life beyond the church. Only this time the cast visits Los Angeles instead of New York City.
TLCpromises, "This season features brighter skies – and darker secrets – as the cast leave their homes and venture west to live together, experiencing a lot of fake firsts along the way." Bright lights! Door knobs! Airplane! Gag me!
"With an all-new cast and a different, vibrant city, Breaking Amish: LA opens the door to these fascinating lives and the journeys they all embark on as they explore this new world in search of who they want to be – at the risk of losing everything they've ever had."
Breaking Amish was a surprise hit for TLC last year and this year it will return two-fold!
The show which chronicled five Amish youth as they navigated life away from their families and their reclusive community proved to be riveting and compelling. As a result the network has renewed the show and is featuring a spinoff of the original series called "Breaking Amish: A Brave New World."
Breaking Amish: Brave New World will all five of the original characters. The show will document their move to a larger and more modern Amish community in Sarasota, FL in an effort to start over while still remaining connected to their roots says The Hollywood Reporter.
