TLC STARTS PRODUCTION ON NEW SEASON OF "BREAKING AMISH"

-- Season three premieres October 2014 with new cast--

(New York, NY) - TLC's popular BREAKING AMISH franchise heads back into production for a third season as a brand new cast makes their way to Brooklyn. With potential shunning from their communities and families at stake, the cast navigates through the ups and downs of engrossing themselves into an unknown, yet exciting new culture. The network has ordered ten hour-long episodes, slated to premiere in October 2014.

The new cast features Miriam, a 26-year-old from Ohio who is currently being shunned for continued disobedience to her Amish community and Vonda, a 29-year-old from Indiana, who is already committed to the Amish faith through her baptism and risks losing it all if she chooses to leave. Barbie, a 22-year-old from Kentucky, wants to experience English life even though she is getting pressure from her parents to settle down, while Bates, a 21-year-old, carefree spirit does not fit into his family's Amish lifestyle and dreams of one day becoming an actor. Viewers also get a look inside the life of 21-year-old Matthias, who was adopted by his Amish parents but has never officially joined the church. The journey from their Amish homes to Brooklyn chronicles the struggles they face and the tough decisions they must make to leave their families and friends behind and change their lives forever.

In the first season of BREAKING AMISH, TLC introduced viewers to five young Amish and Mennonite men and women who left their communities to experience New York City together, and then followed the same group as they traveled to Florida in the spinoff BREAKING AMISH: BRAVE NEW WORLD. In season two of BREAKING AMISH, a different group traveled to Los Angeles for a cultural immersion to English life. The newest spinoff, RETURN TO AMISH, follows the original cast as they continue to acclimate to their new lives while still applying certain Amish traditions to major life events.

BREAKING AMISH is produced by Hot Snakes Media for TLC.
