A&E NETWORK'S 'ESCAPING POLYGAMY' RETURNS FOR A GRIPPING THIRD SEASON MONDAY, AUGUST 7 AT 10PM ET/PT

DOCUSERIES FOLLOWS THREE SISTERS WHO ESCAPED POLYGAMY AS THEY BRAVELY HELP OTHERS FLEE AND EXPOSE THE DARK REALITIES OF THE WORLD THEY LEFT BEHIND

New York, NY - July 7, 2017 - A&E Network's original docuseries "Escaping Polygamy" returns for a powerful third season following Andrea, Jessica and Shanell, three sisters who escaped polygamy in their youth and now devote their lives to helping others get out and successfully begin new lives away from the only world they have ever known. Season three premieres Monday, August 7 at 10PM ET/PT on A&E.

Andrea, Jessica and Shanell daringly left the Kingston clan, a polygamous group based in Salt Lake City, Utah, known as "The Order." Since escaping the polygamous cult, the sisters have devoted their lives to helping friends and strangers alike do the same. The path out of polygamy is not an easy one for those who choose to leave, from the often dangerous initial escape, to the struggle to adjust to a life isolated from their friends and family still in polygamy. As more polygamous sects become aware of the girls' mission, these challenges have become even greater. Groups have tightened the hold over their followers making successful escapes more dangerous.

This season, the many people who enlist help from the girls include a son of powerful FLDS prophet Warren Jeffs who leaves the religion to find his mother who he has been separated from for most of his life; a mother hoping to find her daughters who have been hidden within an elite group in the FLDS community; and a young girl who desperately wants to rescue the love of her life in a dangerous mission that further exposes the dark and treacherous realities of polygamy.

"Escaping Polygamy" is produced for A&E Network by RIVR Media. Executive producers for RIVR Media are Dee Haslam, Rob Lundgren, and Lori Stryer. Jennifer Wagman serves as executive producer for A&E Network.
