DESCRIPTION: (from TLC's press release, September 2014) With 24 children, five wives and one husband, there's never a dull moment in the Williams family households. And the momentum is only about to grow when these progressive polygamists return to TLC this October with all-new episodes. Following Brady Williams and his larger-than-average family, MY FIVE WIVES offers an honest and intimate view into the joys and challenges of living this controversial lifestyle in modern-day Utah. The Williams face changing dynamics in the upcoming season, from potential family additions to those leaving and embarking on new journeys away from home. The new 10-part season premieres Sunday, October 19 at 10PM ET/PT on TLC. This season, Brady attempts to bring his wives closer together by instituting double dates, thus compelling Paulie and Rosemary to mend their sister-wife relationship. Nonie and Brady are actively trying to have another baby while Rhonda continues to explore the possibility of adoption. But is Brady able to handle the stress of a growing family? Rhonda finds the courage to face her earlier cancer scare, with sister wife Robyn supporting her along the way. And the entire family visits Brady's parents in Washington State for vacation as they entertain the prospect of moving nearly 1,000 miles away from their homes in Utah.
