The series was a solid hit for TLC when it debuted, showing the wild lives of young Amish and Mennonite men and women as they left their sheltered communities for the glamorous world of New York City. Season 2, set to premiere in May of 2013, will move the kids south. This time, Abe, Rebecca, Kate, Sabrina and Jeremiah will have to contend with the bizarre world of Florida.
Yes, there will be Amish on the beach.
Viewers can expect more craziness as the second season brings new versions of culture shock, some unexpected enemies, love triangles, career choices and even some family members with their own agendas. Will the kids make their “English” lives work in the face of all of this?
With an average of 3.2 million viewers, “Breaking Amish” had the highest first-season ratings in TLC history. That’s an impressive statistic for a show about kids who grew up without cable television in their homes.
