Will there be a Season 8 of ‘Return to Amish’?

With Season 7 of Return to Amish full of the usual drama, fans are already itching to find out if TLC will renew the long-standing reality series for another installment.

Since 2014, the network has consistently released new seasons of the series each year, with a few hiatuses being the exception. So, can viewers expect their favorite cast members and a few fresh faces to grace their screens again?

TLC has yet to provide an update about whether Return to Amish is receiving an eighth season. However, several indicators hint that the reality show will return on schedule.

During a TikTok live Q&A, reality star Rosanna revealed that fans of the series will likely see her and Johnny’s new baby in upcoming installments.

She also said she might return as a recurring cast member — but under one condition. "They're going to have to pay us more if they want us back,” the Return to Amish personality stated.

How much is the ‘Return to Amish’ cast paid? Season 8 may depend on TLC providing higher salaries.

With some Return to Amish stars, such as Sabrina, relying on their reality series salary as their primary source of income while filming, Rosanna’s demands for higher pay in future seasons make sense. The cast typically travels to Florida for any given season, meaning that if they work full-time or even part-time, they have to give that up to film Return to Amish.

Based on 90 Day Fiancé salary statistics, Return to Amish stars likely receive between $1,000 and $1,500 per episode. And with only eight episodes each season, the cast members’ final payout ranges from $8,000 to $12,000 (before taxes) per season.

As the show’s stars continue to expand their families, their continued participation in the series wouldn’t be sustainable without a heftier salary.

Who will be the cast of ‘Return to Amish’ Season 8?

With Rosanna revealing that her return to the TLC reality series depends on better pay, her future in the franchise is unpredictable. However, if and when the network renews Return to Amish for another installment, fans will likely see several OG cast members again.

Season 7 follows returning stars Maureen and Danny planning their wedding, meaning their Season 8 storyline has limitless potential — the pair even welcomed their first child in 2022.
