Has Sister Wives been canceled or renewed for another season?

TLC has not released a statement yet on the speculated renewal of Sister Wives; however, Mykelti Padron has hinted at the possibility of a sixteenth season.

Sister Wives is an American reality television series on TLC that documents the life of a polygamist family. It features Kody Brown, his four wives; Meri, Janelle, Robyn and Christine, as well as their 18 children. The show premiered on 26 September 2010, and has aired for 15 seasons.

TLC usually does not announce when a show has been picked up or renewed until weeks before the new episodes premiere. Season 15 of Sister Wives was not announced until 21 January 2021, just a few weeks before the episode aired on 14 February 2021. Between 2011 and 2016, the network released two seasons a year, but since 2018, TLC has only aired one season per year. Thus, if the show is renewed, it is only predicted to air in January or February 2022.

However, there are rumors that the show will come to an end after the unpleasant season 15 finale. The finale was centered on Christine Brown’s proposal to move back to Utah, but the idea was rejected by the family. Moreover, Kody and Meri’s relationship reportedly did not improve in season 15. The family was reportedly having numerous arguments throughout the whole season, instead of being the big happy family TLC introduced in season one.

Fans are concerned that the show might be canceled, as the Brown family seems to be going through a tough time. Another reason why the show has been subjected to cancelation rumours is that the ratings have reportedly dropped significantly, due to Kody allegedly mistreating his wives.

Despite the rumors, Mykelti Padron, daughter of Kody and Christine, hinted that season 16 will happen. During an Instagram Live, Mykelti spoke to her fans about what is going on in her life, she also answered multiple questions about the show. During the interaction, Mykelti also mentioned that the family filmed baby Avalon’s birth, but she could not answer too many questions regarding it as Sister Wives will feature the delivery. This subsequently sparked rumours of another season of the show.

Despite Mykelti hinting that there might be another season, TLC has not released an official statement confirming that the show has been renewed for season 16.
