On the next episode of RETURN TO AMISH, airing Sunday, June 8 at 10/9c, the Schmuckers are having problems with the Amish Community. Chester’s sons see that he is taking it hard, while Mary is trying to get past her troubles in New York City, with some Big City experiences: limos, airplanes, and Yoga. Katie Ann tags along with Mary and Kate, and (sort of) finds the courage to talk to a New York guy!
