Breaking Amish is heading west. The hit TLC series, which documents the lives of young adults leaving their Amish and Mennonite communities, has found itself a new cast.
Following in footsteps of Abe, Jeremiah, Kate, Rebecca and Sabrina, who left their homes to live in New York City in the September 2012 premiere, five new cast members will star in Breaking Amish: L.A.
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.
Matt is a 24-year-old man from Pennsylvania who wants to follow in his brother’s footsteps of leaving the Mennonite community, and pursue a career in fashion design. Also from Pennsylvania, Lizzie is a 21-year-old Amish woman who is harboring a secret and wants to start a new life.
In the first look video, Lizzie explains, “It’s just really hard to feel like you’re trapped in a box and no matter what you do, you can’t get out.”
The original cast of Breaking Amish currently appears in the spinoff show, Breaking Amish: Brave New World.
Breaking Amish: L.A. premieres Sunday, July 21 at 10 p.m. EST on TLC. Watch the video sneak peek above and tell Us: Will you be watching?
