TLC released the first look video for the new spinoff series, which features Betsy, Devon, Iva, Matt and Lizzie. According to She Knows, Betsey is a 21-year-old Amish woman living in Ohio who recently married an Amish man, but she is questioning her place in the community. Devon, 21, from Indiana, and Iva, 19, from Pennsylvania are both Amish and want to explore living life among the so-called "English," or non-Amish.
