Sister Wives: Returning to TLC Despite Declining Ratings!

by at .

Great news for fans of reality TV's most scandalous clan of polygamists!

Come to think of it ... the Browns might be reality TV's only clan of polygamists.

Kody and His Sister Wives

Anyway, it seems Kody and company will be back for another round of polyamorous hijinks!

TLC confirmed today that despite poor ratings for Sister Wives, the show will be back for at least one more season.

"We’ve followed the Browns through plenty of ups and downs, but their story is far from over," reads a statement released today by TLC.

"We’re excited to share that ‘Sister Wives’ will return to TLC to continue following the journey of the Brown family,” 

The news comes as something of a surprise, as viewership for Sister Wives declined precipitously over the course of the past season.

While the show still manages a decent market share, the downward trend points to an uncertain future for the once wildly-popular series.

Sister Wives Take a Selfie

According to The Ashley's Reality Roundup, the Sister Wives Season 9 premiere drew in 1.7 million viewers.

Not terrible numbers for a long-running basic cable series, but down considerably from the show's series premiere, which drew in a whopping 2.2 million viewers.

And worse, it seems the numbers may be slipping as the show's current season trudges on.

As for what viewers can expect from Sister Wives Season 10, well, TLC didn't give much away in today's announcement, but we have some predictions.

As those who follow the Browns closely already know, Kody and Christine's daughter Aspyn Brown got engaged to Mitch Thompson in June.

Meri Brown with Kody

News of wedding preparations has been kept largely under wraps, which leads us to believe the build-up to the big day will be the focus of Season 10.

But that doesn't mean the older generation will be pushed to the margins completely. 

After much speculation that Meri Brown will leave Kody, it seems we finally know for sure whether or not she's sticking around.

Meri tweeted last week that "not bailing" on her family, and would like the speculation to end.

So you can expect the ongoing drama between Kody and Meri (and all of his other wives for that matter) to figure prominently in upcoming episodes.

Frankly, we can't wait!

Watch Sister Wives online to get caught up in time for what may be the show's final season.
