It’s nothing but the shunning truth! The Breaking Amish cast has drastically changed since the documentary-style reality series debuted on TLC back in 2012. For the past five years, fans have watched religiously as five Anabaptist men and women moved to New York City to experience a culture vastly different than the ones they had known their whole lives — with the risk of being shunned from the families and communities that raised them.
Now, Sabrina High — a Mennonite — and her fellow cast members (all Ex-Amish) Kate Stoltzfus, Jeremiah Raber, Rebecca Byler-Schmucker, and Abe Schmucker are living their lives in the spotlight on the spinoff series Return to Amish. It recently finished its fifth season and it’s crazy to see just how much this cast has changed throughout the years.

“There are so many little things that I’m not used to,” Kate said of her transition out of Amish culture in 2015. “I’ve experienced so many cultural differences, especially in the relationships that I’ve made. Everything that I was used to is considered not that normal.”
But despite Kate’s words about feeling “not that normal,” it seems this group is getting more and more acclimated to life outside of their Anabaptist communities. Just look at their drastic transformations as proof!
