We’ve got some good news for fans of the hit TLC reality series “Sister Wives." According to reports, the controversial program, which follows the lives of a polygamist family living in Nevada, has been renewed for a sixth season. TLC revealed that the new installment would air in the fall of 2015.
The renewal comes as an exciting update for viewers considering fans previously feared the worst for the Browns after they recently announced that a restructure would take place in their large brood. “We made this decision together as a family,” the Brown family said in a statement. “We are grateful to our family, friends and fans for all their love and support.”
On Sunday’s episode of “Sister Wives,” Meri, the first wife of Kody Brown, revealed that the reconstruction of their family would include a legal divorce from her husband. But the reason behind her shocking decision stemmed from the love she had for her family, not her desire to leave their relationship.
According to reports, Meri sought divorce lawyers on her own to relinquish her title of being Kody’s legal wife. This would then allow Kody to marry Robyn, the youngest of his four sister wives, which would give Robyn’s children from her previous marriage proper health care.
Meri teased audiences, claiming that the truth behind the scandalous storyline would soon be revealed during the Season 5 finale of “Sister Wives.” “Can I just say tabloid? Or media? Come on, you guys have got to be smarter than that! ;-) Watch my REAL reason on March 1. #SisterWives,” she said through a tweet.
Fans will soon get to see how the other sister wives will respond to Kody’s wife swap. “I did not see that coming at all,” Christine admits during the promo video for the finale episode. Meanwhile, Janelle will express her concerns regarding the divorce. “I’m worried that it changes the dynamic,” she says in a clip.
The two-hour finale of “Sister Wives,” which will include a tell-all segement, will air Sunday, March 1 at 8 p.m. EST on TLC.
