When does 'Welcome To Plathville' Season 4' release and where can you watch it

'Welcome To Plathville' Season 4 premieres on Tuesday, May 17 at 10 PM ET/PT on TLC.

Who stars in the 'Welcome To Plathville' Season 4 series

Season 4 features The Plath matriarch and patriarch Kim and Barry, their kids Moriah, Micah, Lydia and the other Plath children. The series also includes Ethan and Olivia Plath, as it explores their marriage, which was previously on the rocks. But now, the pair seems to be working things through. However, one person won't be returning this season, and that is Max Kallschmidt, Moriah's boyfriend, who played a significant role in Season 3.

Kallschmidt even took to Youtube to talk about his split, stating that he felt pressure to move with Ethan, Olivia and Moriah. Unfortunately, his relationship with Moriah deteriorated due to a lack of communication. The final nail in the coffin was when he was a friend's wingman and met a woman. They got close and crossed several boundaries, although they did not sleep together. But his action ultimately led to his split.


What is 'Welcome To Plathville' Season 4 all about

Season 4 features 12 new episodes as the Plath family deals with some old drama and some new ones as well. As per the synopsis of the upcoming season -- "Kim and Barry raised their nine kids on an idyllic and secluded farm in southern Georgia, separated from social media and modern culture but life looks a whole lot different for the family now. Ethan, Olivia and Moriah are in Tampa, far from the family drama but making it on their own in a new city is not all fun and games. Micah is stretching his wings in Los Angeles and finding new friends and room to grow. Kim and Barry have five of their nine kids still living in their house but life is no longer as conservative as it once was. Kim is questioning their lifestyle and her choices overall and some unexpected alliances and friendships occur as a result. As the Plaths explore new cities, navigate their love lives, change and grow in ways none of them ever expected, what's certain is the recent past never seemed so far behind."


What happened in Season 3?

In Season 3 of 'Welcome To Plathville', the Plath family dealt with quite a few changes. Olivia and Ethan's marriage seemed to have crumbled beyond the point of repair, as the couple separated. However, towards the end of the season, they matured as individuals and healthily addressed their issues. Ethan too admitted that there was more to life than living in Cairo and his decision to move was more for him than for Olivia.

However, they were now learning to communicate and consider each other's feelings. On a happier note, Moriah and Micah continue to work on their relationship with their parents. Kim and Barry seem to be far more supportive towards Micah and Moriah's choices and even opened their home to Max, Moriah's boyfriend. The season ended with Olivia and Ethan finally meeting with Kim and Barry to say goodbye, with Olivia admitting that she had healed from the past and what they put her through.
