An anti-technology family with nine kids screams the perfect concept for a television show, right? Welcome to Plathville is TLC’s newest family show, with a whopping nine kids who grew up without owning a TV. The family’s conservative nature and strong religious ideals are giving off the impression that this show is TLC’s answer to 19 Kids & Counting, which was canceled in 2015.
The Plath family on TLC is unlike any other we’ve seen in a long time. Meet the Plath’s ahead of their new TLC series.

Ethan and Hosanna are both married. However, Hosanna will not appear on the show — she is currently on-tour with her husband, pursuing her music career.
