Summary and storyline

Bringing up Bates is a highly-rated American reality television show from the production company Figure 8 Films which is at the moment broadcasting its third season on the UP TV channel in the United States. The Bates family is a very large family that consists of Gil and Kelly Bates and their 19 children living in Rocky Top, Tennessee. The family first became known when they appeared on several episodes of the TLC reality TV series 19 Kids and Counting. Then they had their own reality show on the TLC channel titled United Bates of America which ran for nine episodes. Season 1 of their new reality show Bringing up Bates premiered on UP TV on January 1, 2015.

The reality series become UP TV network’s strongest original series ever, so it came as no surprise when on March 4, 2015 it got renewed for a second season. Season 2 of Bringing up Bates premiered on UP TV in the US on June 4, 2015 and included 14 episodes. The highlights of the previous, second cycle of the show include Brandon’s romantic engagement to Michaella in Washington, D.C. and the couple’s plans leading into their just-announced August 15th wedding in Knoxville, TN.

Ratings, reviews and possible renewal

Season 3 of Bringing up Bates came out on the UP TV channel in the US on Thursday, January 7, 2016 at 9pm ET/PT and it is expected to consist of thirteen one-hour episodes. Perhaps, the most exciting event in the upcoming season will be Michaella's wedding (Gil and Kelly Jo’s eldest daughter). Although, with nineteen children and a few grandkids life is always a one big and beautifully messy party at the Bates’ household. The ratings of the current cycle of the show remain on par with the previous one, averaging around 0.3 million viewers per episode. It is very likely that the program will get picked up for another round.
