Amish Mafia Season 2

via press release:

DISCOVERY CHANNEL CONTINUES TO DOCUMENT THE PERILOUS AND RISKY UNDERBELLY OF THE AMISH COMMUNITY IN SEASON TWO OF AMISH MAFIA

–Second Season Premieres Tuesday, August 13 at 9PM ET/PT–

(Los Angeles, CA) – To preserve peace and order in the Amish community of Lancaster, PA, insider Lebanon Levi and his team of men quietly exert their influence and control as they protect and defend their community. In the new season of AMISH MAFIA, premiering on Tuesday, August 13 at 9PM ET/PT, Levi continues to maintain order as he seeks to keep outside forces from infiltrating the Amish community. But nearby, several rivals are determined to take away his power and bring him down. Levi is forced to stand and fight, or forever lose his authority.

The first season of AMISH MAFIA reigns as the highest-rated series premiere as well as the highest-rated freshman series in Discovery Channel history. And this season, the stakes are even higher. Lebanon Levi must reconstruct and rebuild his crew after his right hand man Alvin is arrested in Florida. Having also lost crew member Jolin, a trained fighter with deep ties to both the Amish and Mennonite communities, Levi makes the decision to hire Caleb, a young and troubled member of the Brethren community. Levi will need all the help he can get as the newly unshunned Merlin sets his sights on taking over Lancaster and bringing Levi down.

But Merlin is not the only problem Levi will face. Levi’s former friend Alan is released from prison and believes that Levi turned him into the local authorities, leading to his four month stint in jail. In addition to Levi’s rivalries, this season will also continue to document the plight of Esther and her brothers John and Freeman. Esther returns from North Dakota with her brothers in tow, ready to reclaim her family's once proud name. But with John on the run from Levi and rumors of Freeman’s demonic possession surfacing, Esther will be forced with a difficult decision.

This is a side of Amish society that exists under the radar, and the Amish church denies the group’s existence. AMISH MAFIA provides eyewitness accounts of the incidents, misdeeds and wrongdoings within the Amish community, as well as a rare look at Levi and his team members who work together to maintain harmony. To protect participants and their family members, some identifying information and property has been changed. Some scenes have been reenacted.

AMISH MAFIA is produced for Discovery by Hot Snakes Media, where Eric Evangelista and Shannon Evangelista are executive producers. For Discovery Channel, Matthew Kelly is executive producer with Max Micallef as coordinating producer.

    Why don’t they just make this show officially “scripted?” The stories would be entertaining and enjoyable if they didn’t try to pass this thing off as reality.
