TLC Bringing Back Show About 'Progressive Polygamists' TheWrap

TLC has renewed a series that is part of what's being called the "polygamist reality trope." TheWrap.com reports that the cable channel picked up “My Five Wives” for an eight-episode second season.

The show, which the article says features “progressive polygamists,” averaged 1.2 million viewers in its first season. The project tracks the Williams family -- consisting of husband Brady, his wives Paulie, Rhonda, Rosemary, Nonie and Robyn and their 24 children -- at their property outside Salt Lake City.

“The series features a progressive twist on the polygamist reality trope: The Williams family split from the Mormon Church over the church's conservative views,” the story notes.

"On Sunday May 4, the family will be answering questions from viewers in a very special FAQ episode, where the family will answer questions from viewers on topics ranging from what goes on in the bedroom to how they deal with living within a polygamist family," the report adds. "The following Sunday, the family will sit down with NBC and gush to Tamron Hall about everything that happened during filming and behind the scenes."
