-- TLC's Hit Series SISTER WIVES Returns on Sunday, January 7 at 8/7c and SEEKING SISTER WIFE Premieres on Sunday, January 14 at 10/9c --

(Silver Spring, MD) - TLC is growing its family tree with more wives, more love and more drama. The highly anticipated, new season of SISTER WIVES returns on Sunday, January 7 at 8/7c with a two-hour episode, then TLC will offer a glimpse into the lives of three unique families in its new, riveting series, SEEKING SISTER WIFE, premiering on Sunday, January 14 at 10/9c.

SEEKING SISTER WIFE follows three families - the Alldredges, the Brineys and the Snowdens - all of whom are in various phases of seeking, dating or transitioning a new sister wife into their lives. Viewers will get an unprecedented look at this intimate process as the husbands and wives date online, and in person, and explore the ins and outs of seeking and incorporating a new wife into their family structure.

Throughout the series, viewers will experience the triumphs, frustrations and heartaches of each family as they navigate through this life-changing, and oftentimes emotional journey. With three husbands, six wives, and twenty-four children residing between three households, drama is bound to unfold at every turn. Although peace and harmony can be fleeting, and disagreements will inevitably arise, these families are determined to open their hearts and homes to a new wife, even if they have to withstand a few growing pains along the way.

Meet the Families

Ashley and Dimitri Snowden are an African-American family who live in Atlanta, Georgia with their two adorable children, ages two and four. To the naked eye, they are a typical family - the only difference is that they are on the hunt for a sister wife. Ashley is on her third and last pregnancy, but she and Dimitri want to continue expanding their family. Although the couple recently experienced the heartache of a plural relationship that went sour, they are ready to start looking again for a compatible and committed woman who wants to have children. The Snowdens do not subscribe to the Mormon faith, but they have a spiritual union and adhere to a moral code. They have purposefully abstained from a legal marriage under the eyes of the law in order to ensure equality with their future wife.

Jeff, Vanessa and Sharis Alldredge are a fundamentalist Mormon family. Jeff met Vanessa and Sharis within a year of each other and spiritually married them. They have seven children combined, all under the age of seven, and they live together in one house where the women share the household duties as well as a husband. As polygamists, the Alldredges believe their family is never complete and they plan to expand their family as large as God sees fit. They are actively dating and in search of their third wife.

Drew, April, Auralee and Angela Briney: Adding a new family member can cause a lot of turmoil in the plural lifestyle and the Briney family is no exception to the rule. After a two-week courtship, Drew Briney recently added a third wife to the family, and for the first time, he and his wives, April, Auralee and Angela, along with their 15 children, are all moving into the same house together. April is Drew's first and legal wife, and she has no qualms exercising control over the other wives. Although April and Auralee have known each other for years, they bump heads and don't always see eye to eye. Angela - the newest wife who had trouble conceiving for 20 years - found out that she was pregnant months after she joined the family. While April and Auralee are excited to love Angela, they hardly know her. All three women are trying to establish their new normal, but it has been a bumpy ride thus far.

Before fans are introduced to the new families on the block, they can catch up with the Browns, the beloved polygamist family featured in TLC's hit show, SISTER WIVES, returning on Sunday, January 7 at 8/7c with a supersized season including ten, two-hour episodes.

With all-new episodes this season, the Browns are on a roller coaster ride of family drama and joyous milestones. Just months after the first marriage among their children, a second wedding is approaching quickly. Mykelti is marrying Tony Padron and everything about this wedding is completely different from her sister Madison's. Meri is still struggling in her marriage to Kody and a visit to their therapist reveals just how much they've grown apart. Meri is also trying to patch things up with her daughter, Mariah, who recently announced that she is gay. While Meri was initially caught off guard by the news, she has a chance to redeem herself when Mariah invites her and Janelle to participate in the March for Women in Washington, D.C. along with Mariah's new girlfriend.

Meanwhile, Maddie and Caleb have some major news to share: not only is Maddie expecting her first child, but the couple is also planning to move to Las Vegas and have their baby at home. Through all of the Browns' emotional ups and downs this season, viewers will be there every step of the way as the sister wives prepare for the arrival of the family's first grandchild.

On December 18, viewers can get a first look at the new season of SISTER WIVES. To watch the early premiere before it's on TV, download the TLC GO app or visit: TLC.com/SisterWives.
