TLC Renews 'My Five Wives' (Exclusive)
TLC wants more of My Five Wives.
The cable network has ordered eight additional episodes of the unscripted series to premiere in the fall.
The series, which has been averaging 1.2 million total viewers during its first season, follows Brady Williams, his five wives and their combined 24 children, who all live together on their large family property outside of Salt Lake City.
Meanwhile, the Williams family will answer questions in two special upcoming episodes, an "FAQ" and "Tell All," set to air at 10 p.m. on May 4 and May 11. Sunday's episode, set in Rosemary's home, will address such topics as the pressures of being in a polygamist family to Brady to intimate details of what goes on behind closed bedroom doors. (Watch a sneak peek below.)
The May 11 episode will find Brady, Paulie, Robyn, Rosemary, Nonie and Rhonda sitting down with NBC's Tamron Hall to talk about everything that happened on camera and behind the scenes on this past season of the show. The family will address the challenges and rewards of life in a plural marriage, the wives competing for Brady’s time, adding new members to the family, Rhonda's health and the "safe talks."
My Five Wives is produced by Relativity Television for TLC.
