Return to Amish is a reality television show that premiered on TLC in 2014. The series follows several Amish individuals who have left their traditional way of life and are now exploring the outside world, but ultimately decide to return to their Amish communities.

The show revolves mainly around three individuals: Jeremiah Raber, Sabrina Burkholder, and Carmela Raber. Jeremiah is a former Amish man who left his community to pursue a life outside of the strict rules and regulations of the Amish faith. He is now married to a non-Amish woman, but he struggles with the cultural differences between his new lifestyle and the lifestyle he grew up in. Sabrina is a young woman who also left her Amish community after getting pregnant out of wedlock. She is searching for a sense of identity and purpose outside of the Amish faith, but she also feels a strong pull to return to her community. Carmela is an Amish woman who has never left her community, but she is curious about the outside world and wants to explore more.

Throughout the series, viewers get a glimpse into the lives of these individuals as they navigate the challenges of their new lifestyles and also grapple with the decision to return to their Amish communities. Each episode follows the cast as they participate in various activities and observe different cultural practices that are unfamiliar to them. For example, in one episode, the cast members visit a drag show, and in another, they attend a yoga class.

One of the central themes of Return to Amish is the tension between the individual desires of the cast members and the expectations of their families and communities. For example, Jeremiah struggles with the fact that his family and friends in the Amish community view his decision to leave as a rejection of their way of life. Similarly, Sabrina feels pressure from her family to return to the Amish faith, even though she is unsure if it is the right path for her.

The show also sheds light on the challenges of adapting to a new way of life after leaving a strict, insular community. Many of the cast members struggle with feelings of isolation and loneliness as they attempt to navigate the complexities of the outside world. Additionally, they must learn how to navigate modern technology and social norms, which can be overwhelming and confusing.

Despite the difficulties of their new lives, the cast members also find joy and fulfillment in their new experiences. For example, Jeremiah discovers a passion for cars and is able to pursue this interest in his new life. Sabrina finds a strong support system in her non-Amish friends and begins to build a life outside of the Amish community that feels authentic and fulfilling.

Return to Amish is a fascinating look inside the lives of individuals who have made the difficult decision to leave their Amish communities and explore the outside world. The show provides a nuanced and compassionate portrayal of these individuals as they navigate the complex and sometimes conflicting desires of their families, communities, and selves.

Return to Amish is a series that is currently running and has 7 seasons (58 episodes). The series first aired on June 1, 2014.
