The reality series "Breaking Amish" provides a unique look into the lives of young men and women who break free from their Amish or Mennonite traditions to pursue dreams of an "English" life in New York City and Brooklyn, N.Y. They get to wear jeans, use electricity, and spend time in places that serve alcohol -- all first-time experiences for them -- but taking advantage of Western luxuries has its disadvantages. The cast members likely will be abandoned by their families if they commit to living full-time on the outside, and even if they return to their previous lifestyles, they risk being shunned by their community altogether. The choice is theirs, and they know it comes with potential lifelong consequences.

It stands to reason that TLC wants to "return to Amish." The network got considerable traction by documenting Amish and Mennonite lifestyles and how they contrast with others today, beginning in 2012 with "Breaking Amish," its highest-rated freshman series. The profiled young men and women experienced unfamiliar cities, including New York, and now they have returned to their roots. The spinoff "Return to Amish" features some of those people -- Abe, Jeremiah, Rebecca and Sabrina -- back in Pennsylvania, where they become reacquainted with traditions while having life-changing experiences like marriage and pregnancy. Cameras also follow Kate, who chose to remain in New York to focus on a budding modeling career.
