Can You Expect Sister Wives Season 16?

Since its premiere in 2010, Sister Wives has been one of the most talked-about reality shows, but certain clues suggest that the famous polygamist reality series' demise may be imminent. While the new trailer for Sister Wives season 16 promises another exciting chapter in the Brown family's story, it also teases a possible conclusion for the show as well as many of Kody Brown's relationships. From the deterioration of Kody's connections with his sister wives to the lingering rumours of the show's cancellation, these are the reasons why Sister Wives season 16 could be the series' final season.

For a decade, the Brown family has struggled to strike a balance between maintaining family harmony and appearing on a reality show. Season 16 may, unfortunately, be the breaking point for Kody and his four sister wives. The family appears to be on the verge of catastrophic destruction, according to a new trailer for the upcoming season.

The COVID-19 epidemic has caused a major split amongst the family members, according to a new excerpt from the upcoming season 16, which was published by Us Weekly. “The foundation that our family was built on is eroding,” Robyn Brown cried in the teaser.

What the Sister Wives Season is All About 

Kody Brown, his wives Meri, Janelle, Christine, and Robyn, and their 18 children are the subjects of the show. The show aired Kody's courtship and marriage to his fourth wife, Robyn, in 2010 during the first season. Robyn was the family's first new wife in over 16 years.
Kody and Meri had a legal marriage until September 2014, and Kody and Robyn had a legal marriage from December 2014 to allow Kody to legally adopt Robyn's three children, Dayton, Aurora, and Breanna. Kody's marriages to Janelle and Christine (for the duration of their marriages) and to Meri (after their legal divorce) are regarded as “spiritual unions.”

Fate of Sister Wives Season 16

TLC has announced that Sister Wives, their iconic reality TV show, will return for its sixteenth season in November, following the family as they deal with the COVID-19 pandemic. Fans have been increasingly irritated with Kody's fourth wife, Robyn, in recent seasons. They blame Robyn for much of the family's turmoil, stating that Kody openly prefers Robyn over the other wives.
Independent producers Timothy Gibbons and Christopher Poole approached North Carolina-based Figure 8 Films in the autumn of 2009 with the idea of a reality series about the Brown family. Figure 8 Films president Bill Hayes said the studio consented to the project after meeting with the Browns and determining that their lives would make a compelling storey. In mid-2010, camera teams shot footage of the family for inclusion in the first season, which ended in May with Kody Brown and Robyn Sullivan's wedding. After that, the filmmakers proceeded to shoot them in case the show got renewed for a second season.

On August 6, 2010, at the Television Critics Association summer media tour in Beverly Hills, California, Sister Wives was first publicly announced. The first hour-long episode of the series aired on TLC on September 26, 2010, and the first season was followed by six half-hour chapters till October 17, 2010.
Fans have remarked on how Robyn has always received “special treatment” from Kody on several occasions. He has been more affectionate to her and has showed more interest in her life than the other wives; she was given a lengthier honeymoon than the other wives. He also requested a divorce from Meri in order to legally marry Robyn, which required Meri to make a significant sacrifice.
