The original docuseries Escaping Polygamy returns for a powerful second season on A&E following three sisters who have left polygamy and now help others break free from the often dangerous and abusive lifestyle.
As young girls, sisters Andrea, Jessica, and Shanell bravely left the Kingston clan, a powerful polygamist group based in Salt Lake City, Utah known as The Order. Now, more than 10 years later, the sisters are dedicated to helping other men, women, and children escape the polygamous sect in which they were born and raised, and ultimately manage new lives on the outside. In each one hour episode, the sisters work with friends and strangers alike who are in various stages of leaving polygamy — some just recognizing the need to leave, others actively seeking to breakout, and those struggling to adjust to the sometimes harsh realities of the real world.
