When Breaking Amish premiered on TLC in 2012, the world was introduced to a group of young Amish people and one Mennonite woman who were ready to explore a world very different from the one in which they had grown up. They continued their journeys on Return to Amish, and since some of them have been off TV, a lot has happened.

Now that Return to Amish is back with Season 7 and a few newbies, people want to know where the OG stars are.

So, where is the original Return to Amish cast now?

Abe and Rebecca Schmucker aren't on TV anymore.

Abe and Rebecca were married at the end of Season 1 of Breaking Amish and, for the most part, they've never really looked back. There was speculation at the time that they had known each other prior to appearing on the show together, but whatever relationship they might have had before only flourished as they fell in love and embraced the "English world."

Since Breaking Amish and Return to Amish, Abe found a career as a truck driver, and Rebecca is a stay-at-home mom with their two daughters. She recently revealed in an Instagram Q&A that she is "so much happier" after leaving the show and that she and Abe have no plans to return to reality TV.

Jeremiah Raber is still part of 'Return to Amish.'

Jeremiah saw his fair share of legal troubles after starring on both Breaking Amish and Return to Amish, including an arrest for domestic violence. These days, he no longer appears to be married to Carmela Raber. However, their marriage and hope for a baby together is part of their Season 7 storyline on Return to Amish.

Kate Stoltz is working on her fashion career.

Kate may be one of the most successful cast members from both Breaking Amish and Return to Amish. But in recent years, she has distanced herself from the franchise. She has been doing a significant amount of fashion design in New York City and has her own brand now, under the name Kate Stoltz.

On Instagram, she regularly shares updates about her clothing line and travels.

Sabrina Burkholder had another baby in March 2023.

Sabrina had a difficult time acclimating to English life. She grew up Mennonite, but never quite felt like she belonged because, like Jeremiah, she was adopted. Following her initial stints on the show, she struggled with addiction and with maintaining custody of her children.

However, she seems to be doing better than ever now. Although in Season 7, she's dealing with the on again / off again relationship with Jethro Nolt, with whom she shares three kids, she is dating someone else outside of the show now. And, in March 2023, she welcomed another child.

Watch Return to Amish on Tuesdays at 10 p.m. ET on TLC.
