With the reality series getting ready for its return in November, viewers can expect some tension at the Plath house. After all, it ain’t so easy to evade modern life charms!
Kim and Barry Plath chose to raise their nine children on a 55-acre farm to shield them from the chaos of the modern world and instil their traditional values and beliefs.
In the TLC GO original series, members of the Plath family discuss how their personal experiences and journey have shaped the values, beliefs, and aspirations they have today.
However, their little slice of heaven looks very different at the moment. Several of the Plath children are pushing the boundaries and questioning their family lifestyle.
The second season follows the separation of the conservative extended family into three households within blocks of each another.
