Season 2 will pick up from there and here's everything you can expect and all you need to know about the show when it returns in 2021.
Season 2 of '1000-lb Sisters' will premiere on January 4. A new episode will air every Monday night between 10-11 pm ET on TLC.
Season 2 begins with Amy who's recuperating from a very successful bariatric surgery. A couple of months later she's greeted with more good news. She and her husband Michael are pregnant with their first baby and while the couple is as happy as they can be, Tammy is overwhelmingly worried for her sister. Not too much time has passed since Amy's surgery and Tammy is concerned that her sister is still recovering. This baby was everything that Amy had dreamed of but doctors had warned her that she had to wait at least 2 years before conceiving.
Meanwhile, Tammy has moved in next door to Amy and Michael and relies on Amy and Michael for all her basic necessities. They're happy to oblige but Amy worries that with the baby coming along, she won't have much time to look after Tammy's needs and hopes that her sister can become more independent.
This season was shot during quarantine, and Tammy's weight has fluctuated. This has left Amy and her family totally worried because Tammy's weight gain means that she has fallen into old habits. Amy and Tammy's elder brother Chris decides to join Tammy on her journey in the hopes of getting approved for weight loss surgery himself and also to hold Tammy accountable. Amy, Chris, and the family are working together in hopes to motivate Tammy to lose weight and get cleared for surgery.
Tammy's love life too will be a part of this season. She's madly in love with her boyfriend Jerry who she met in person just once last year in Atlanta. Now, he's agreed to visit her in Kentucky and Tammy hopes this means he's ready to take their relationship to the next level. However, Tammy's siblings don't think highly about this relationship and are not happy about Jerry's arrival. After knowing that they've only met once, the family thinks Tammy's love life is headed towards doom and that Jerry could sabotage Tammy's weight loss goals and distract her from making her health a priority, according to TLC's press release.
Amy Slaton and Tammy Slaton are the principal castmates in this series. Their brother Chris and Amy's husband Michael, and the rest of the family also make appearances on the episodes.
The sneak peek for the upcoming season details Tammy's woes. She's gained an enormous amount of weight and the doctors have told her that her chances of dying in the next 5 years are about 80%. Amy is having the time of her life being pregnant but a visit to her doctor brings to the fore a number of things that could go wrong in this pregnancy that's turned complicated. Tammy's boyfriend Jerry too makes an appearance and the family question his motives after he says he wants Tammy to get the surgery in spite of agreeing he likes big girls.
