Sister Wives fans once again find themselves playing the TLC waiting game for a new season start date since the last season ended a while ago. But it looks like Kody Brown didn’t have to go to bat to get another season of Sister Wives on the screen. It appears this time around Season 14 was easier to secure than some of the previous seasons of this TLC reality show.
It seems the Sister Wives reality show is not on the cancellation list, although some reports put it there. Despite TLC not spelling it out by releasing the official word of renewal, the thumbs-up came right from the horse’s mouth. In this case, it came from the mouths of the new generation of Kody Brown’s Sister Wives family.
Sister Wives: Renewal Announcement Comes From the New Generation
First Meri Brown and Kody Brown’s daughter, Mariah Brown, mentioned she loved the film crew who were with her in Chicago. Then the Sister Wives clan showed up for a visit. So, it appeared TLC started filming season 14. This was backed up by local Chicago Newspapers.
Reports came out in black and white that Kody Brown and his Sister Wives group landed in the Windy City with cameras in tow. So that seemed to confirm Mariah’s online blurb about the camera crew filming at the time.
The next bit of info came from the daughter of Christine Brown and Kody Brown. Gwendlyn Brown did a series of Instagram Stories and in one video clip, she answered questions from fans.
Let Me Give You a Hint… Yes
First of all, Gwendlyn let fans know that some questions she just couldn’t answer. It sounded as if that might be due to the rules TLC set forth, although she didn’t say that.
One of those questions was from a fan who asked about another season of the show. This happened to be one of the questions that Gwendlyn couldn’t answer. But, she said, she’d give them a hint – “yes”. So this is the second Sister Wives daughter who let the cat out of the bag.
The latest reports have trucks parked on the Coyote Pass land that Kody Brown and his four wives purchased in Flagstaff. While it’s not known what type of business these trucks hail from, eyewitness suggestions seem to lean toward the trucks belonging to the Sister Wives production crew. That probably means the trucks carry the filming equipment.

Sister Wives: Kody Brown Missing Boxing Gloves This Time Around
One of the biggest hints comes from something that didn’t happen after the last season ended. No reports surfaced suggesting Kody Brown embarked on negotiations with TLC. After Sister Wives Season 11 failed to keep up the ratings, news of the show’s cancellation emerged. But that didn’t happen as Kody went to bat taking a huge pay cut to keep the cameras rolling.
So this time around there’s no news about Kody fighting a battle to keep the show alive. Which probably means there’s no need to because it’s already renewed. But TLC’s official word is still missing.
So when can Kody Brown fans expect to see Sister Wives Season 14 finally roll out? You can only look back at the show’s history of season premiere announcements to get a good idea when this might happen. TLC doesn’t seem much for fanfare when it comes to a show’s premiere announcement.
The network doesn’t seem to operate like the other networks that offer premiere information months and months away from the date. Dangling that carrot for a long time does keep the fans interest and eventually hypes them up. But it looks like TLC uses their own tactic for that.

Will History Repeat Itself?
Over the years TLC tends to announce the premiere date of a new Sister Wives season not long before the season starts. Usually, it’s only about a month before the premiere airs. But sometimes it’s only been weeks before the premiere’s scheduled release.
In January of 2019, TLC premiered Sister Wives Season 13. But they only announced the show’s premiere at the end of December 2018. Fans learned of the premiere date just a few weeks before Season 13 premiered. When it comes to TLC timing, it’s not as if there’s a designated month to roll out a new season this show.
New seasons premiered in several different months of the year. They’ve rolled out in November, September, July, June, May, March, and January in the past. So it’s not as if there’s a designated month to watch for. With the news that Sister Wives cameras roll, the new season could feasibly be only weeks away. Or months away – depending on TLC.
Sister Wives Premiere Date Pinpointed By Fans?
But a new date swirling around online in the very predominant Sister Wives fans groups indicates Season 14 premieres on January 7, 2020. This is not an official date and the source is unknown. But sometimes the fans of the show find out these things before the big websites online.
If that’s the case maybe fans can look to last year for a hint as to when TLC will make the announcement. Last year they announced in December that Sister Wives premieres in January so maybe history will repeat itself? Either way, it looks like another Sister Wives season with Kody Brown is on the way.
