TLC’s “Breaking Amish” is back and this time, they are hitting the West Coast.

The network revealed the stars of the show’s second season, “Breaking Amish: LA” which debuts this summer. According to the network, this season will feature a “brand new cast setting out to explore a life beyond their Amish and Mennonite homes. Trading in the vast fields and strict rules of their rural communities for the endless beaches and blistering sunshine of Los Angeles, these young men and women come together to determine if they’re really ready to embark on a new life among the ‘English,’ or if they should return to the faiths and families they’ve left behind.”

With 10 episodes on deck, the series is set to return on Sunday, July 21 at 10/9c.

“’Breaking Amish’ is about the challenges and opportunities anyone faces when at a crossroads in life – deciding which path to take and finding your road to happiness. With an all-new cast and a different, vibrant city, “Breaking Amish: LA” opens the door to these fascinating lives and the journeys they all embark on, as they explore this new world in search of who they want to be – at the risk of everything they’ve ever had,” said Amy Winter, General Manager, TLC.

The official cast description…

Betsy: Amish, 21 years old, from Ohio. Adopted as a baby into an Amish household, she has tried living outside of the faith, but recently married an Amish man. Despite this, Betsy continues to struggle with being a member of the community, and hopes to come to peace with a decision.

Devon: Amish, 21, from Indiana. Living at home with his Amish parents, Devon remains conflicted about the Amish lifestyle. He remains unsure of his future and is interested in experiencing life with the English before making a final decision.
