This fall season, a lot of shows are falling like crazy. NBC already cancelled Outlaw, ABC Family cancelled Huge, Fox cancelled Lone Star, ABC cancelled My Generation, and also cancelled The Whole Truth, and MTV cancelled The City in its second season, and HBO cancelled Big Love at its fifth.
And in this case, TLC renews Sister Wives for a second season to air on 2011. Big Love ends, Sister Wives is renewed. That´s the cycle of life.
Sister Wives is an American reality television series broadcast on TLC in 2010. The show documents the life of a polygamist family living in Lehi, Utah, which includes patriarch Kody Brown, his three wives and their 13 children. It will also televise Brown’s courting and marriage to a fourth wife, who herself has three children. Sister Wives first broadcast on September 26, 2010, and is set to run for at least seven episodes.
Brown and his wives have claimed they participated with the show to make the public more aware of polygamist families and to combat societal prejudices. Brown has claimed his polygamist arrangement is legal because he is legally married only to one woman, and the other marriages are spiritual unions. Nevertheless, legal experts have claimed the series could leave the Brown family vulnerable to criminal prosecution.
One day after the series debuted, Lehi police announced they were conducting a bigamy investigation into the family. The Utah Attorney General’s office has not ruled out seeking criminal charges against the Browns, but stated they do not have the resources to go after polygamists who are not suspected of serious crimes such as child abuse or child trafficking.
