'Little People, Big World' Full Cast List: Here's what Amy, Matt, Zach and Torie Roloff have been up to ahead of Season 22
TLC's long-running show 'Little People, Big World' is returning with Season 22 on Tuesday, May 11. It is centered around the Roloff family from Oregon. The show chronicled the six-member family as they lived their lives on the Roloff Farms. Most of the episodes were about parents Amy and Matt, and some were about one of their son Zach who inherited the achondroplasia gene from them.
The show has been on the air for 15 years now and it's not for nothing that the network keeps renewing the show season after season. In light of the new installment of 'LPBW' coming to screens, here's a look at what the family has been up to and what viewers can expect as the show comes back, seven months after the previous season aired back in 2020.

'Little People, Big World' star Jacob Roloff claims he was molested by show producer in 'long grooming process'
After his divorce from Amy in 2016, Matt Roloff has found love yet again in Caryn Chandler. In a previous season, he said his ultimate goal is to marry Chandler but for now the two are taking it slow and enjoying life as it comes. The longtime couple has yet to make things official but they remain inseparable as Chandler has moved in with Matt on the farm and helps around with everything including offering an extra hand to look after his grandchildren.
All of 59 years, age is definitely catching up with Matt and viewers have long speculated that he will hand over the family farm to one of his children. Since Amy has moved out, and the onus of taking care of the property lies completely on Matt's shoulders, there is a high possibility he will recruit one of his sons to take over, but it is not going to happen just yet.
Amy, the resolute matriarch of the Roloff family, is currently preparing for her marriage to fiance Chris Marek with whom she has moved in. She regularly shares regular titbits from her wedding planning journey with her large fan base on Instagram. Amy had moved out of the Roloff Farms in Season 21, four years after her divorce with Matt. Matt had offered to buy out her share of the land and she accepted his offer in the previous season.
However, she and Matt jointly control a chunk of land that would be available to any of their four kids in case they express an interest in taking up ownership of the farm. Amy also helps out with the farm whenever needed. She did so during the 2020 pumpkin season to help support the business considering her son Zach and his family are dependent on the farm. Amy has hinted that her wedding which had to be canceled due to the pandemic, is happening sometime in August 2021 and we hope she can finally make it to the aisle.
Zach and Tori Roloff
Zach is the only child of Matt and Amy with dwarfism. He is married to Tori, a normal-sized woman and the couple have two children together -- Lilah and Jackson. Zach continues to work on the farm and appears on the show unlike his other siblings. He has also expressed an interest in taking up a bigger role on the farm and also offered to move on the property. Zach is also an avid soccer player and has kept in touch with his passion by coaching youth teams in Oregon.
Where are Jeremy, Jacob and Molly Roloff now?
Matt and Amy's other three kids do not appear on the show anymore and have moved away for various reasons. Zach's twin Jeremy always wanted to take over the farm but he found success as an author and an influencer. Jeremy married his girlfriend Aubrey and the two have launched a couple of successful ventures together. When not working on their businesses, the couple is seen doting after their two kids, Bode and Ember.
Jacob left the show when he turned 18. Last year, he claimed he was molested by one of the executive field producers Chris Cardamone while he was still a part of the show. Jacob said his statement was a long time coming and also clarified his family was not at fault in any way for whatever happened with him. He also said he carried no shame and in no way blamed anyone else but Cardamone for what he went through.
Molly was a 12-year-old kid when the Roloff's landed the TLC deal. She did appear on the show in the initial seasons and slowly slipped out of the narrative completely as she grew old. She is married to Joel Silvius since 2017 and the two live in Spokane, Washington, which is a very long drive away from Oregon. She is still spotted at the farm occasionally but she prefers to not have the cameras rolling when she does.
'Little People, Big World' Season 22 will premiere on Tuesday, May 11, at 9 pm ET.
