A spinoff version of the original Breaking Amish was released on May 22nd, 2014, called, Return to Amish. The show is a reality series following the original cast of Breaking Amish and how they adjust to their Amish community lifestyle. The Amish community is said to be a traditional Christian church group of Swiss German, and French origins.
Since its launch in 2014, the show has released seven seasons, with the seventh season airing presently. The show feels like a continued version of its parent show and shows how the cast members try to get accustomed to the Amish life but face many challenges and obstacles while doing so.
The show is created to observe the contrast between the lives of the cast members living the Amish lifestyle and the modern average people’s lifestyle. Return to Amish is back after a hiatus of two years, with the cast members living in Pennsylvania trying to readjust to their life.
The current season follows the cast members as they put their feet out of the restrictive surroundings and try to live their lives in the new age. The Amish cast explores their non-limiting freedom and what they can do with it. Obviously, it is not that easy for them to accept new things immediately, which is what makes the show interesting.
Return to Amish documents their struggles and life experiences over the time period of ten weeks. It is a show full of drama and interesting stories about life.
Return to Amish: Plotline
The reality show, Return to Amish came back after a wait of two years with a seventh season on March 14th, 2023. Since its release, the show has released its first two episodes. The cast of this season has stepped out of their limiting grounds into a freer world in hopes of building a life for themselves.
Time and again, the members of the show mention how it is not easy for them to welcome this freedom with open arms and that, at times, it even causes them anxiety. Despite that, they do have a few things they are looking for in their minds. One of the members, Kenneth, wishes to look into his professional career as a Basketball player.
Daniel is out in hopes of a non-Amish wife, which is pretty daring considering his culture, and Fanny wishes to explore herself to test her boundaries and potential.
The show launched its first episode titled, “Karma Carmela Chameleon,” and it is already full of adult people drama. Cast members Jeremiah and Carmela are stressed because of the pressure of bringing a baby into this world, and the two decide to take a break from the whole process and constant baby talks.
Rosanna also has struggles of her own, where she is stuck in a conundrum. She finds herself unable to decide if she wants to leave her boyfriend, Johnny, to go live her beloved English lifestyle or if she should just stay with her boyfriend. Sabrina, another Amish member, is pregnant with another child, but it is not going to be that easy because her boyfriend, Jethro, has decided to leave her.
The second episode has Johnny pissing his pants as he enters a club for the first time in his life. Being in an English club is a first for him, and it will surely be one scary memory for the man. Sabrina, on the other hand, is very pregnant and requires help which she gets from her Amish mates, Jeremiah and Carmela.
Daniel finally moves towards his goal of getting an English girlfriend and has set a date with one. This episode also sees Kenneth finally arriving in Florida to move closer to his dreams of being a basketball player.
The next episode will see Jethro flying back to Florida to mend his relationship with Sabrina and Fannie, finding being shunned by her Amish community very troubling and landing right in the middle of some spicy drama.
