1000-Lb Sisters Season 3 Release Date, Cast, And Trailer - What We Know So Far

The Slaton Sisters, Tammy and Amy, have come a long way (and faced a lot of setbacks) since "1,000-lb Sisters" debuted on TLC in 2020. Only Amy qualified for weight loss surgery back in Season 1, while Tammy did not make her weigh-in goal, and ultimately ended up gaining weight. During Season 2, Tammy dealt with another weight gain setback, and lived with the aftereffects of contracting COVID-19, while trying to foster a blooming relationship with her boyfriend, Jerry. Meanwhile, Amy tried to balance her marriage while maintaining her weight loss after becoming pregnant in the wake of her weight loss surgery. In the second-to-last episode of Season 2, she gave birth to her son Gage (via IMDb). You catch all that? It was an eventful couple seasons of TV.

There's sure to be a lot of further twists and turns in the lives of both sisters when the reality show returns for its third season. Here's everything we know so far about Season 3 of "1000-lb Sisters."

Updated November 3, 2021: This article has been updated with information released via the Season 3 trailer.

When will Season 3 of 1000-lb Sisters be released?

TLC renewed "1,000-lb Sisters" for a third season on March 15, 2021 (via Deadline). Even before we had a clear start date for filming, fans were clamoring so loudly for a new season that there was even a change.org petition, which garnered over 5,000 signatures. Clearly, the demand is there.

Judging by TLC's typical schedule for the show, it seemed likely that a third season would either begin airing in the winter of 2021 or the first quarter of 2022, which we took to mean the show was about to enter into production, if it hadn't secretly done so already. The previous season aired from December of 2020 to March of 2021, so a winter release would put Season 3 roughly on schedule.

The COVID-19 pandemic was always a risk to this timeline. As of May 2021, Tammy was actually recovering from COVID-19, though it seems she came through the disease no worse for wear. She even confirmed via social media in response to a fan comment that the new set of episodes would begin airing on TLC in January 2022, but that plan now appears to have been pushed up. Now, we can happily confirm that "1000-lb Sisters" Season 3 is headed back to our screens on November 15.

Who will be back for Season 3 of 1000-lb Sisters?

It's likely that viewers can expect both Amy and Tammy back, as well as Amy's son, Gage. Also likely to return: Amy's husband, Michael; the girls' brother, Chris; and their weight loss surgeon, Dr. Proctor. As to how the sisters are getting along as their journeys take them to different places, that remains to be seen. With Tammy requesting a break at the end of Season 2, it's unknown if her boyfriend Jerry will be featured in Season 3.

With the show finishing at number one in its time slot among Women 25-54, 18-49, and 18-34 (according to Deadline), the show has clearly struck a chord and is likely a big earner for TLC. Chances are, the cabler's as eager to get the show back on the air as the fans are to watch it. Will the girls meet new friends or make new enemies? Will they find new highs and lows in their weight loss journey? In their relationships? And how will all of these factors come into play as the girls make a final push for their health goals? It all remains to be seen.

The Season 3 trailer is here, and it's everything

The Season 3 trailer finally dropped on October 7.

Naturally, it reveals that this season is likely to continue to focus on the sister's weight loss journeys, and that of their brother Chris, who joined the show in Season 2. But with Amy being a new mom, it's also likely Gage will be a regular presence in Season 3, as well as her husband, Michael. It's easy enough for the show to mill out some interesting tension between new motherhood and the maintenance of Amy's weight loss goals.

Meanwhile, Tammy's life as a COVID survivor will likely also factor into the season, as it did in the final episode of Season 2 (she remained on oxygen as of last summer, via pictures posted to her Instagram, though she has indicated that the amount of oxygen she needs has greatly decreased [via a YouTube]). In February, Tammy came out as pansexual on her Instagram as well as in a statement to TMZ, real-life changes that might well see screen time in the next season.
