Spoiler alert: This article contains spoilers for the Season 3 finale of 1000-lb Sisters.
Things are rarely easy for the Slaton family on 1000-lb Sisters, but if Season 3 taught fans anything, it's that Amy, Tammy, and the rest of the gang are strong enough to handle even the biggest life curveballs. That being said, will there be a Season 4 of 1000-lb Sisters? With the amount of drama and open-ended questions in Season 3, it seems likely.
In the Season 3 finale, which was released on Discovery Plus ahead of its TLC time slot, Tammy finally agreed to go to rehab for her food addiction. She also said she wanted to get healthier, both physically and mentally, and that she wants to live a more fulfilling life. Now, fans want to see this new and improved Tammy tackle the biggest test of her life, and we need a fourth season for that.
Will there be a Season 4 of '1000-lb Sisters'?
In November 2022, TLC officially announced there will be a Season 4 of 1000-lb Sisters — and it premieres on Jan. 17, 2023. A news release from the network offers an idea of what viewers can expect: "After surviving a near-death experience, Tammy struggles to cope with her new reality. Then, she makes a life-altering decision, one that no one saw coming."
It continues: "With baby number two on the way, Amy feels her family is complete, but she soon realizes being an overweight mom may prove to be too much. Chris is desperate to get rid of excess skin and qualify for skin removal surgery, while Amanda offloads some dead weight of her own."
Tammy has been to rehab for weight loss more than once.
At the end of Season 3, Tammy was hopeful about her future and her family was rallying behind her. Tammy headed to food addiction rehab in the Season 3 finale, and her health took a turn for the worst.
She was rushed to the hospital, where she had a tracheotomy to help with her breathing. By the time she was approved for release, she wanted to go back to rehab, which is an improvement from where she was mentally at the start of the season. This is one of the first times Tammy agreed to help herself and work toward a better future for her health.
Tammy went to rehab for her food addiction at the start of Season 3. She decided to leave early, however, which eventually led to weight gain outside of the facility. Then, when Amy announced her plans to buy a house and move out of the duplex next door to Tammy, things got worse. Tammy went on several drinking and eating benders with friends.
After speaking with her doctor, Tammy finally decided to head to rehab again. And in the Season 3 finale, Tammy was more determined than ever to get her mental and physical health on track. Hopefully, this trend continues in Season 4!
Does Tammy Slaton want surgery?
Three of Tammy's siblings have had bariatric surgery. While there's still a long road ahead for her brother Chris Combs, who undergoes surgery in Season 3, he makes strides toward changing his own unhealthy lifestyle.
Tammy took her time getting to where she was at the end of Season 3, but she seems like she finally wants to have weight loss surgery too.
1000-lb Sisters Season 4 premieres on Jan. 17, 2023, at 9 p.m. EST on TLC and Discovery Plus.
