The newest season of “Sister Wives” is just around the corner on TLC, and fans are eager to find out what will be happening with several members of the Brown family. However, three members of the family, in particular, will likely once again take fans’ focus—Meri, Robyn and Kody Brown.

Fans have always been intrigued by the relationships between the family Patriarch and both his first and fourth wives, especially since his divorce from Meri, legal marriage to Robyn, and Meri’s catfishing scandal in recent years. Though that drama all seems to be behind them, the interest in the three only continues to spike as the years continue.

With the family bringing their lives back to television once again, fans want to know what they can expect to see. Here’s what is next for the three members of the Brown family.

According to the trailer for the new season, Kody will be dealing with a lot of drama, especially as his family starts to reject something he feels is the best move for the family to make.

The biggest storyline on the upcoming episodes seems to focus on the family’s 2018 move to Flagstaff, Arizona, which Kody orchestrated. While Christine seems to be on board with the move, even saying in the trailer that she was “done” with life in Las Vegas, the other wives don’t seem to be on board with his plan. Janelle is the most vocal, admitting she doesn’t want to force their son, Gabriel, to move again, especially when he is in his junior year of high school, but overall Kody will remain firm and even state that at some point, he was going to lead to places his wives wouldn’t want to go, but he was still going to lead them there.

In addition, he will also deal with some tension with Meri over the money for her plans to open her bed and breakfast in Utah, and he will also prepare to give away another one of his daughters, as Aspyn marries her husband, Mitch.


Meri’s prime focus will seem to be on her plans to open Lizzie’s Heritage Inn, the bed and breakfast in Parowan, Utah, that is housed in a home she bought back for her family. However, while she has since opened the property and made it operational, it appears she struggled to get there when it came to the financial support she sought from her family. In the trailer, she expresses that she needs help with the down payment money for the property, and Kody tells her it’s not possible. As a result, she seems furious, and even appears ready to walk away from the family once and for all as a result.


Though she is involved in all of the same decisions as the rest of the family and is Kody’s legal wife, Robyn seems to be taking a backseat to the drama this time around, with no real major storyline in the trailer that she seems to be involved with. It’s unclear if she kept herself mainly in the background while the other wives took center stage, or if she will be involved in another storyline that has yet to be revealed.

“Sister Wives” returns to TLC at 8 p.m. EST on Jan. 20.
