In the first season, five young men and women were shown leaving their Amish and Mennonite homes to live in the big city for the first time.
According to the Daily Mail, the experiences of Abe, Jeremiah, Rebecca, Sabrina, and Kate in New York City were followed by an average 3.2 million viewers, which made the show TLC’s top performer.
Season two will follow the same group of individuals, only this time they will reunite in Florida.
TLC notes that in upcoming shows, which are currently being filmed, the five original cast members will “find more culture shock, unexpected enemies, and surprises from family members with their own agendas,” according to the Mail.
The first season of “Breaking Amish,” publicized as a reality show, was fraught with controversy after people who knew those on the series alleged some cast members had not been practicing their faith for several years and were not unaccustomed to city life.
Additionally, photos of Abe and Rebecca—who presumably met on the show for the first time—surfaced on social media, in which they are seen with a baby. The child turned out to be Rebecca’s and it was revealed she and Abe had been romantically before the series ever began.
Season two of “Breaking Amish” is slated to premiere on TLC in May.
