TLC Orders Eight Additional ‘My Five Wives’ Episodes

Continuing to highlight families that come in all different shapes and sizes, TLC announced today that it has ordered eight additional episodes of “My Five Wives” to premiere this fall. The series, which has been averaging 1.2 million P2+ 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, Utah. Following the mid-season finale this past Sunday, viewers will get to learn even more about the progressive Williams family with two special upcoming episodes, an “FAQ” and “Tell All,” set to air in back-to-back weeks, Sunday, May 4 and May 11 at 10PM (ET/PT), on TLC.

This Sunday, in an episode titled “You Asked. Brady and Wives Answer,” the Williams clan answers the questions that viewers have been dying to know in a special Q&A session right out of Rosemary’s home. From the pressures of being in a polygamist family to Brady and the wives sharing intimate details of what goes on behind closed bedroom doors, the Williams family holds nothing back in this revealing episode.

Then, on Sunday, May 11, in a special “My Five Wives”: TELL ALL, Brady, Paulie, Robyn, Rosemary, Nonie and Rhonda sit 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. No topic is off limits in this incredibly candid one-hour special as the family opens up about 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, those infamous “safe talks,” and everything in between.

In this sneak peek from this upcoming week’s FAQ episode, the group answers questions about breaking down polygamous stereotypes and why they decided to participate in their own series.

“My Five Wives” is produced by Relativity Television for TLC.
