When “Counting On” was officially cancelled by TLC, “Welcome to Plathville” came along and filled a Duggar-sized hole in the hearts of fans. Now it’s basically inconceivable to think that Plath’s children can’t be seen continuing to grow up and defy their parents’ strict rules. But will there be a 4th season of “Welcome to Plathville”?
The first three seasons are a whirlwind of the older Plath children’s orientation outside the family home. Ethan Plath discovers the world of sugar, alcoholic beverages and “worldly” of TV shows. Moriah Plath breaks out and enters a romantic relationship for the first time. Micah Plath pursues a modelling career. It’s hardly time to say goodbye to them for good.
TLC announced in a press release that the fourth season of Welcome to Plathville will premiere on May 17, 2022 at 10 p.m. ET on TLC. The fourth season will continue to follow some of the older Plath children as they settle in Florida, where they moved at the end of the third season.
While Ethan Plath, Olivia Plath and Moriah Plath are in Florida, Micah is working on her modeling career in Los Angeles.
How Many Episodes Is Season 4 Of ‘Welcome To Plathville’?
Season 4 of Welcome to Plathville is 12 episodes long. The first season had only six episodes and the second season nine. Since Season 3 was 12 episodes long, it makes sense that TLC will greenlight the same number for Season 4, which should be as dramatic as ever if the older Plath kids have anything to say about it.
Most fans are anxiously waiting to find out what happens to Ethan Plath and Olivia Plath in Welcome to Plathville. Their marriage is on shaky ground, and Kim and Barry Plath aren’t making their situation any easier. Ethan’s younger sister, Lydia Plath, however, takes part of the spotlight in Season 3 as she tries to communicate with a boy she’s in love with.
Lydia’s story may come more to the fore in season 4. Unlike some of the older siblings, Lydia certainly does not want to leave home and her parents’ rules, but she shows hints of questioning their teachings and seems to want to explore life as a young adult.
