TLC’s polygamist reality series Sister Wives is in the midst of perhaps its biggest headline-grabbing controversy in the history of the show after we broke the story that family patriarch Kody Brown had legally divorced his first wife Meri Brown and later legally married his fourth wife Robyn Brown in a move that the family later described as “legally restructuring” in a statement. Seemingly in support of the notion that in reality TV programming there is no such thing as bad publicity, TLC has officially announced they have renewed Sister Wives for a sixth season.
The renewal announcement comes in a press release issued by the network earlier today which is, on the surface, more about the two-hour Season 5 finale in which details about why Kody divorced and remarried will (we assume) be revealed. Here is the full press release followed by a preview video for the finale on March 1:
