The Slaton sisters have come a long way since their days of YouTube fame thanks to their TLC series 1000-lb Sisters,. Over the past two seasons, viewers have watched Tammy and Amy Slaton struggle and triumph on their respective weight loss journeys.
Now that Season 2 has officially ended — with Amy as a new mom after having bariatric surgery and with Tammy, unfortunately, continuing to gain weight because of her food addiction — fans are curious: Will there be a Season 3 of 1000-lb Sisters?
Fans are concerned that there might not be a Season 3 of '1000-lb Sisters.'
Something Tammy shared via TikTok has fans worried that a Season 3 of 1000-lb Sisters might not be happening — or if it does, that Tammy won't be returning. When a TikTok user commented on one of her videos asking if she would be appearing in the next season of the TLC series, Tammy replied that she didn't know.
Perhaps Tammy honestly didn't know at the time whether TLC was giving the show the green light for Season 3. Or, maybe Tammy's ongoing health struggles are forcing her to reconsider her participation in the show so that she can fully focus on her weight loss.
As viewers found out toward the end of Season 2, Tammy not only didn't lose weight, but she had actually gained even more weight. (Not to mention, Tammy was still on supplemental oxygen following her battle with COVID-19.) It would make sense, then, if she wanted to take a step back from the spotlight order to get a better handle on her health — and to seek therapy for her ongoing food issues, as her doctor has hinted.
Will there be a Season 3 of '1000-lb Sisters'?
On March 15, TLC announced that it had officially renewed 1000-lb Sisters for Season 3 — likely because Season 2 of the series ranked No. 1 in its time period among women ages 25-54, 18-49, and 18-34, according to a news release.
“Tammy and Amy Slaton have captivated us with their fun-loving personalities, heartfelt challenges and uplifting victories,” said Alon Orstein, SVP of production and development at TLC. “We admire their genuine, evolving journeys and we are rooting for them as they pursue paths toward healthier lifestyles.”
It's still unclear, however, whether Tammy will be participating in the upcoming Season 3 of 1000-lb Sisters.
If Tammy's health (physical or mental) prompts her to temporarily take a step back from 1000-lb Sisters, viewers would obviously be disappointed. At the same time, we think they'd also be supportive of Tammy doing what's best for her.
