'Little People, Big World' follows the life of the Roloff family as they face the pressures that come with being little in an average-sized world and the financial burdens of operating their property - Roloff Farms. A new season of the show is about to premiere soon and here is everything we know about it.

Release Date 

Season 10 is coming to TV screens on March 31, 2020.

Plot

According to TLC, Matt and Amy Roloff are both little people, 4 ft in height, but they are determined to fight it out and not only sustain but also succeed in a world that isn't accepting of people who are different. Matt has risen through the ranks of the business world, closing deals with some of Silicon Valley's most well-known companies. After being laid off, Matt decided to pursue his dream of owning his own business. He is also the former president of Little People of America, a support group for little people and issues affecting their lives. Matt's wife Amy has raised four children with him: twins Jeremy and Zach, Molly and Jacob. Originally a stay-at-home mom, Amy now holds two jobs. Together they own and operate Roloff Farms, a sprawling 34-acre farm in Oregon. The Roloffs' successes mask a hard truth that for little people, every day is a new challenge. Driving a car, seeing over the counter at a bank or even making a simple trip to the grocery store can quickly become a test in a world that wasn't made for them.
