TLC's Tuesday night programming is about to get exciting once again. The void left after three of the biggest shows on the network -- 'My Big Fat Fabulous Life', '7 Little Johnstons', and 'Unpolished' -- finished airing their respective seasons is about to be filled by this new show which again is focused around family, in this case, a blended family. 'The Blended Bunch' is a modern-day spin on the late '60s sitcom 'The Brady Bunch' that used to air on ABC. 

It features the Shemwells, a large and newly blended family that will be seen facing all kinds of challenges as they attempt to move ahead in life with their 11 children, all under one roof, adjusting to a new life in the touristy state of Utah. Continue reading below to know all about it.

Season 1 of 'The Blended Bunch' will premiere on March 16, 2021. A new episode of the show will air every Tuesday night between 9 pm to 10 pm on TLC. 


Widow Erica, a mother of seven children and widower Spencer, father to four toddlers, lost their spouses tragically but as luck would have it, they found love again in each other, almost immediately and the two married each other. The Shemwells will be seen raising their 11 children, all under the age of 13, potty training the toddlers, making dinner for the lively brood, tackling bedtime and much more on the show. "'The Blended Bunch' will take viewers on an emotional journey and show a new, large family from a whole other lens," a press release from TLC stated.
