A new season of Escaping Polygamy is coming our way this summer!
Broadway World reports that the show’s fourth season will premiere in June, with the show moving from A&E to Lifetime. The same group of sisters– Shanell, Andrea and Jessica Christensen–will once again be attempting to help people escape from polygamous situations.
While past seasons have featured escapees from the Kingston Clan and the Fundamentalist Mormon (FLDS) groups, Season 4 will also feature people who want to escape the Apostolic United Brethren (AUB), which is the church that the cast of Sister Wives belongs to!
According to the new report, the new season will feature “an AUB father looking to save his children from the painful world of polygamy.”
Other notable escapees who will be featured on Season 4 include the daughter of an elite member of the Kingston Clan who doesn’t want to marry her older cousin; and the son of FLDS leader Warren Jeffs, who is looking for his mother.
Some of the ‘Escaping Polygamy’ girls were seen during the last season of ‘Sister Wives,’ participating in the same rally that Kody Brown and his family were at. While the Browns were at the rally to fight in favor of polygamy, the girls of ‘Escaping Polygamy’ (as well as some of the escapees the sisters have helped) were protesting against polygamy.
"Polygamy BROKE up my FAMILY" Was my favorite poster at the rally today!! We get so much backlash saying we should move on and live our lives and leave the polygamist alone, but the sad part is they don't realize how much of a great life we actually have that we do get to live AND enjoy!! But I would feel guilty if I didn't use my voice to speak up for the other victims of polygamy!! We should be rallying together on this!! There should be no opposing sides when it comes to the true victims of polygamy! I'm embarrassed for those so called innocent polygamist or happy polygamist that try to say they are victims!! I want to show them what a victim actually looks like ….. Hearing them yell "families not felons" I wanted to ask "so what am I? Do you even consider me family anymore?" I wanted to run up and hug so many of them, but then I remember they live in a life where they don't like me and probably wish I didn't exist anymore…. BUT oh well I still exist and will be an advocate for the children, women, and the abused!! #standwiththetruth #speakupforvictims #onevoicecanmakeadifference #escapingpolygamy
According to Broadway World, the girls of ‘Escaping Polygamy’ have had a harder time helping people lately, due to the notoriety of the show.
“As more polygamous sects become aware of the girls’ mission, the more they are despised by those faithful to the religion making escapes increasingly dangerous,” the story reads.
The new season of ‘Escaping Polygamy’ premieres on Lifetime.
