TLC To Turn ‘My Five Wives’ Special Into Full-Blown TV Series

TLC is about to deliver Sister Wives 2.0!

The network announced yesterday that it will be turning My Five Wives, a special that aired this past fall that starred Brady Williams, his five wives and their 24 children, into a television series. Judging from the success of the network’s other show that focuses on a polygamous family, this isn’t exactly shocking news. After four seasons (five, if you count the new set of episodes that will air soon), the Brown family of ‘Sister Wives’ is getting a bit long in the tooth, so it’s no surprise TLC wants to keep the polygamy fun flowing with a new family!

The new series will run in the same one-hour episode format as ‘Sister Wives’ and will make its debut in March 2014, according to The Hollywood Reporter, who broke the story. Nine episodes have been ordered.

The Williams family, which, along with Brady consists of his wives Paulie, Rosemary, Robyn, Nonie and Rhonda and their assorted children, made quite the ratings splash for TLC when their special aired in September. The one-hour program garnered a surprising 1.9 million viewers.

It’s been a big month in the world of polygamy. Just a week or so ago, a federal judge ruled that Utah’s ban on multiple cohabitation was unconstitutional and found in favor of the Browns, who filed the lawsuit. Read more about that here.

  1. This lifestyle is ridiculous. Why would you want to be one of five wives? I can better appreciate having one household, where all live under one roof-this should result in all sharing and caring more for each other. With all five wives and children living in different homes, it seems like each wife is constantly missing her husband, I just don’t see the value of this type of lifestyle.


  2. BORING, BORING, BORING…AT LEAST THE WIVES ARE HONEST THOUGH: THEY’RE JEALOUS AND PETTY IN THEIR OPINIONS, NEEDS, WANTS AND DESIRES.NO MATCH FOR THE BROWN FAMILY WHERE THERE IS OBVIOUS LOVE AND RESPECT FOR ONE ANOTHER – INCLUDING BOUNDRIES. THEY’RE ENTERPRISING AND SHARE IN RESPONSIBITY FOR ALL OF THE KIDS – INCLUDING ATTENDING PROGRAMS, EVENTS, ETC. THEY ARE A TRUE FAMILY AND HAVE BLENDED WELL.
    WHAT DO THESE 5 WIVES SHARE IN OTHER THAN VOICING WHAT ‘THEY WANT AND WHAT IS THE OTHER GETTING’.


  3. Brady is a weak controlling idiot,…live and let live I guess, but I find this sort of lifestyle rediculous…These values are not what I want my children to watch….looking for a cancel on this one..


    1. I agree with your comment to cancel, but not for the same reason; It’s boring and so far centers on Brady waking up in a different home (e.g.) bed each morning.


  4. Yes! I’ve watched Sister Wives from the beginning. It is so fascinating watching these passive aggressive women and their famewhore manchild “husband.” They just eat their feelings and he is too busy on his hair and with Robyn to care. But it’s time for their show to be cancelled because it is just plain depressing at this point. I liked the special and I’ll be watching the new show.


  5. Am I the only one who finds it ironic that while Kody has 1 skinny wife and 3 fat ones, this guy has 4 skinny wives and 1 fat one?

    ***yes I know I’m going to h#%£ for this I was just pointing it out
