Return to Amish cast
"Return to Amish" is a reality docu-series on TLC that is a spin-off of "Breaking Amish."

The original series introduced viewers to five young men and women who chose to leave their sheltered Amish and Mennonite lives to experience New York City together for the first time, and then followed them as they traveled south to Sarasota, Florida. The spin-off series follows Abe Schmucker, Rebecca Byler, Sabrina Burkholder, Jeremiah Raber, and Kate Stoltzfus as they continue to acclimate to their new
lives while still applying some Amish traditions to holidays and major life events. Mary, Katie Ann, and Andrew Schmucker all return as well, and viewers are finally introduced to Chester (Mary's husband), Chapel (Andrew's girlfriend) and Kayla (Rebecca's daughter).

Since the Sarasota trip, the entire group has decided to return back to the Pennsylvania area with the exception of Kate who has decided to stay in NYC. With two new babies on the way, the original group is growing fast. Abe and Rebecca prepare to welcome their baby into the family with both Amish and English traditions as they continue to adjust to married life. Viewers will also be a part of Sabrina's journey as she goes through the ups and downs of her pregnancy. Jeremiah's love life and current job situation is also highlighted throughout the new series, as is Mary's ongoing struggles with being shunned by the community. And as Andrew is newly released from jail, he tries to start fresh with his on-again, off-again girlfriend Chapel, as well as his relationship with his entire family — a work in progress at best. Cameras also follow Kate as she officially becomes a New Yorker — living on her own, dating in the big city, and continuing with her budding modeling career.

Season 3

The crew visits New York City to remember the pivotal moments and ground-breaking memories they had when they first experienced the culture outside of the Amish community. From strangers to friends and now more like family, this season highlights big decisions, shocking announcements and rekindled friendships of the beloved Amish group.

On the upcoming season, Sabrina reunites with the rest of the crew after battling addiction. Clean and sober, her main goal is to regain custody of her daughter, Oakley. She convinces Mary, Jeremiah, Abe, and Rebecca to visit Kate in New York to recharge their friendships. Kate continues to pursue her dream of working in the fashion industry beyond modeling by taking classes and trying to secure a high profile internship. She's found that making a name for herself is much more difficult than she imagined.

While in the city, Abe and Rebecca spend quality time together to try and get the spark back in their relationship. With Abe on the road the majority of the time, the first years of marriage have not been easy, but being in the city where he and Rebecca fell in love reminds them of the reasons they are together.

After being banished from the Amish church, Mary has a big decision to make about her future. The group rallies around her to support her during the transition, and Jeremiah makes an announcement about his long distance relationship that leaves everybody in shock.
