Has ‘Sister Wives’ Been Canceled?

Will the Brown clan return for Season 12?

Fans of TLC’s Sister Wives have wondered if there would be a Season 12 of the popular reality series that centers on the extended Brown family ever since Season 11 ended in January of 2017.

The show centered on the lives of the clan throughout the summer of 2016 and since then, production details regarding the Brown family’s return to TLC have been sketchy.

In fact, the network's decision to remain quiet about the polygamous Brown family and the series has caused fans to wonder if it has been canceled.

At the present time, the show's future remains uncertain because so much time has passed since the previous season aired.

Allegations regarding the possible cancellation of the series stemmed from an interview published in Life & Style with a “friend” of Robyn Brown back in late 2016.

Kendra Pollard claimed series patriarch Kody Brown was nervous he was going to lose the show. He was reportedly “desperate” to do anything it took to keep the show on TLC, including allegations of taking a fifth wife.

"He wants to stay relevant to TLC,” Kendra stated to Life and Style. "If he takes on new wives, she said she'll leave. This isn't what she signed up for."

Robyn then took to Twitter, slamming Kendra’s claims.

“Conversations that never happened, texts that were never sent, friendships that don't exist, situations that aren't real- makes for a fun read,” said Robyn on her official Twitter account.
