"BREAKING AMISH" BECOMES BIGGER THAN EVER

-- TLC confirms spin-off series, and casts new group for second season--

(New York, NY) In season one of BREAKING AMISH, TLC introduced viewers to five young men and women who chose to leave their sheltered Amish and Mennonite lives to experience New York City together for the first time. The series broke records for the network, becoming the best performing freshman series ever, with an average of 3.2M P2+ viewers. Now, TLC is confirming that the recent filming with the original cast members will premiere as a new spin-off series titled BREAKING AMISH: A BRAVE NEW WORLD, and that the network has also selected a new cast who are looking to explore the world beyond the Amish community for a second season of BREAKING AMISH.

BREAKING AMISH: BRAVE NEW WORLD, premiering Sunday, May 12 at 10pm ET/PT, finds original cast members Abe, Rebecca, Kate, Sabrina and Jeremiah reuniting, and expecting to make a fresh start in Sarasota, FL - home to a large ex-Amish and Amish community. But, they are surprised to discover even more culture shock and unexpected challenges. The series exposes more relationship conflict, dramatic moments between the roommates, surprise visits, financial struggles and major decisions as this group tries to acclimate to their new "English" lives in yet another unfamiliar city.

TLC has also selected a new group of young Amish and Mennonite men and women who are eager to live a life beyond the limited upbringings they've known. The cast will consist of three women and four men, with production on the new season of BREAKING AMISH starting this spring. The series is scheduled to premiere later this summer.

"The BREAKING AMISH franchise is a remarkable look at individuals facing a critical crossroads in their lives, whether to pursue the dreams they've always had, or stay in the only life they've ever known. Both iterations of the series follow a group of young men and women on their own journeys of self discovery as they navigate new relationships and explore the world around them," said Amy Winter, GM, TLC.

Both BREAKING AMISH series are produced by Hot Snakes Media for TLC.
