— Roloff Family Ushers in Autumn with New Season Beginning Tuesday, October 29 —
(Los Angeles, Ca.) – One of television’s favorite families returns this October in a brand-new season of TLC’s hit series LITTLE PEOPLE, BIG WORLD. The Roloffs go back to their roots as children Jeremy, Zack, and Molly join Jacob at home for the summer, reuniting the family on the farm for the first time in two years. Matt and Amy will enlist the help of the kids as they expand the business and gear up for pumpkin season. All hands are on deck as the family works together to plan the most memorable weddings for four new couples who intend to tie the knot at Roloff Farms. This eight-episode season of LITTLE PEOPLE, BIG WORLD premieres Tuesday, October 29 at 9 PM (ET/PT).
This season will explore a familiar family dynamic with everyone back on the farm, providing viewers with an intimate picture of the Roloffs, a family they have grown to know and love over the past seven years. Patriarch Matt will be faced with some health issues that could put his ability to run the farm in jeopardy. And he, Amy and the children will also support one another as they deal with an upsetting diagnosis for another member of the family. Then, as the summer comes to an end and the kids head back to college, Matt and Amy find themselves alone once again reevaluating their relationship.
LITTLE PEOPLE, BIG WORLD follows the Roloffs, an extraordinary family comprised of both little and average-height people, capturing their everyday successes and struggles, and presenting an in-depth view of life as a little person. Since the series began airing in 2006, the Roloffs have welcomed viewers into their day-to-day lives on their Oregon-based farm.
