The very strong rumors have become and official reality:

1,000-Lb. Sisters is coming back with new episodes!

Many months after Tammy Slaton teased a fourth season of this emotional reality show, TLC announced via press release that she and her sibling, Amy, will return to the small screen in 2023.

1,000-Lb. Sisters Season 4 will premiere on Tuesday, January 17 at 9 p.m. EST.

Along with the confirmation of this return, the aforementioned cable network also unveiled an official synopsis of upcoming installments.

It reads as follows:

Tammy makes “a life-altering decision” after surviving a near-death experience.

Amy, expecting her second baby, isn’t sure how being an overweight mother will work, while Chris is desperate to qualify for skin removal surgery.

Those familiar with these women are aware of the storylines referenced in that description.

To close out Season 3, Tammy suffered a major health crisis; it resulted in a medically-induced coma for the cast member, along with Slaton checking into a rehab facility.

She has remained there for the duration of 2022.

Last we heard, Tammy actually met someone, fell in love and GOT ENGAGED to a guy named Caleb, who is also a resident at the same weight loss center.

“They have a lot of the same struggles that they can share. They’ve been a huge support for each other [in rehab], which is awesome,” a friend told The Sun early this month of Tammy and Caleb.

Sources have said the couple is getting married on November 19.

Last holiday season, Tammy checked herself back into this Ohio clinic for help after tipping the scales 639 pounds.

She has since lost well over 100 pounds and therefore qualified for gastric bypass surgery, a monumental step in her journey to good health.

Back in July, meanwhile, Amy welcomed her second child.

The reality star’s baby boy arrived on July 5 via c-section… weighing 5 pounds 11 ounces and measuring 17.5 inches at birth.

“The wait is finally over … Michael and I are happy to announce the birth of our son, Glenn Allen Halterman,” Amy told People Magazine at the time.

“The delivery was a huge success and now I have both of my miracle boys; our family is complete.”
