TLC has become the go-to network for lifestyle and personal difficulties reality programming during the last decade. “My 600-lb. Life,” a show about severely obese patients transforming their bodies and lives, premiered on the network in 2012. Patients on the show are frequently unable to walk or accomplish everyday duties due to their homebound status.
According to Showbiz Cheatsheet, several patients have achieved success in keeping their weight off and are now leading regular lives after chronicling their weight reduction journey.
TLC allowed sisters Tammy and Amy Slaton the opportunity to confront their weight reduction journey on their show “1000-lb. Sisters,” which premiered in the network in 2020, following the popularity of “My 600-lb. Life.” According to Screen Rant, the sisters built a large following on Amy's YouTube channel, where they shared cosmetic instructions and life updates, before receiving their show.
The Slaton sisters signed on to appear on “1000-lb. Sisters” despite having their channels because they didn't think the platform could give people a thorough look at their weight loss adventures.
In 2019, Amy told the Louisville Courier-Journal, “Doing the program is one way to give us a different light since you can only show so much on YouTube.” “This is something we deal with daily.” The sitcom has followed Amy's path to becoming a mother and Tammy's health challenges for three seasons. Here's what Season 4 has in store for us.
When will the fourth season of 1000-lb Sisters premiere?
TLC has yet to announce the renewal of “1000-lb. Sisters,” which is presently in its third season, according to IMDb. Due to a lack of information about the show's future, many fans are speculating whether the current season will be the final one.
Amy Slaton has already met her weight-loss targets, according to Showbiz Cheat Sheet, whereas Tammy Slaton has continued to gain weight despite major health issues. According to Screen Rant, she was put on life support when doctors detected a blood clot in her legs, but the complication did not prompt her to adopt healthy lifestyle changes.
TLC is going to struggle to come up with new plots for the fourth season, given the sisters' opposing trajectories. Fans of the show have already expressed their dissatisfaction with the current season of the show.
“I'd want to see it continue because I enjoy trash entertainment, but it's coming to the point where there's not much more story to tell until Tammy decides to do anything with her life this season,” one fan wrote in a Reddit thread enquiring about the fourth season. “I don't think that anything is decided until the current season airs [and] they see how many views they get,” another fan writes, expressing hope.
If the show is renewed, it is expected to premiere in late winter 2022, as it has in prior seasons.
Tammy and Her Tumultuous Boyfriend Called It Quits Recently:
On Monday's episode of “1000-Lb Sisters,” Tammy Slaton disclosed that she and her boyfriend, Phillip, had broken up. Tammy had previously introduced viewers to Phillip, who claimed to prefer dating ladies who weighed more than 300 pounds. Given Phillip's predilection, Amy Slaton was first concerned that he would make it more difficult for Tammy to lose weight.
According to People, Amy remarked, “I'm trying to inspire Tammy because I do have my concerns about Phillip, the new guy.” “He likes huge ladies,” she says, “but she has to reduce weight.”
Tammy told Amy on Monday's program that she and Phillip had called it quits. According to People, Tammy told Amy during an episode of the show, “We split up.” “I suppose you could say I did it because I was tired of arguing with him and he claimed that my fears were the issue. And, at the start of our relationship, I told him, “Can you promise you'll help me overcome my insecurities?”
He stated that it had become excessive.” Tammy later discussed the pain she felt as a result of the split. Tammy told People, “I'm fast to trust, and that's one of my downfalls.” “As a result, in the long run, I do wind up getting badly harmed.”
Which Cast Members Will Appear in Season 4 of 1000-lb Sisters?
Given that Amy and Tammy Slaton are the stars of the show and have recorded their experiences for the previous few seasons, it's quite likely that TLC would renew “1000-lb. Sisters” for a fourth season. Even though both sisters were morbidly obese at the start of the show, their weight loss journeys have been very different.
According to Screen Rant, Amy qualified for weight reduction surgery and met her weight loss target during the first two seasons because she wanted to raise a family with her husband, Michael Halterman. According to Monsters and Critics, she gave birth to her first kid, Gage, in November 2020. Amy revealed that she is expecting her second child in 2022, and her pregnancy would almost certainly be featured in Season 4.
Tammy, on the other hand, might have a hard time staying focused on the television. According to Distractify, while she went to rehab to shed weight for the current season, she ended up leaving the facility 15 pounds heavier. According to People, her failure to reduce weight has caused many to question if she would ever achieve her goal of having bariatric surgery.
Darlene Rednour, the sisters' mother, has previously been on the program and may do so again in Season 4, even though her appearances have not been well-received due to how discouraging she has been to both Amy and Tammy (per Screen Rant).
Tammy Slaton Is No Longer Dating Her Ex-boyfriend:
Though Tammy Slaton's weight loss quest may receive less attention in Season 4 of “1000-lb. Sisters,” she may have a backup narrative with her new beau.
According to Showbiz Cheat Sheet, Tammy broke up with her ex-boyfriend Phillip on the current season of the show. Phillip was a divisive character since he seemed to have a fascination for extremely obese women, which enraged Tammy's sister, Amy. “I'm trying to inspire Tammy,” Amy stated on the show, “because I do have my concerns about Phillip, the new guy.” “He likes huge ladies,” she says, “but she has to reduce weight.” Amy didn't have to be concerned for long because Tammy swiftly ended her relationship with Phillip.
Tammy informed Amy, “We broke up.” “I suppose you could say I did it because I was tired of arguing with him and he claimed that my fears were the issue. And, at the start of our relationship, I told him, “Can you promise you'll help me overcome my insecurities?” He stated that it had become excessive.”
Tammy uploaded a picture of an unknown man kissing her on the cheeks on Instagram after their breakup was publicized, leading followers to question if she's in a new relationship. Perhaps in Season 4, the answer will be revealed.
