WELCOME to Plathville first aired on TLC back in November 2019 and is starting its third season.
The show follows Barry and Kim Plath and their nine children as they grow up and start exploring things that were once forbidden.
Where is the cast now?
According to the series description, the Plath children “have never had a soda, don’t know who Spider-Man or Tom Brady is and have never watched TV.”
The Plath children include, Ethan, Hosanna, Micah, Moriah, Lydia, Isaac, Amber, Cassia, and Mercy.
Here is a look at where the cast is today:
Barry works as a transportation planner and has been with the same private firm for over 25 years.
He is known as a Christian fundamentalists and takes the Bible very literally.
Like her husband, Kim is also a Christian fundamentalists.
Most recently, Kim’s son Micah addressed the conflict between her and her daughter-in-law Olivia following the tension from her wedding with Ethan from season 2.
“I think a lot of it was my mom trying to make it her wedding almost,” Micah told Us Weekly on August 15, 2021.
“It was at her place. She had what she wanted to do. She’s just, you know, really excited, and I feel like that happens a good amount of times, but she probably went a little overboard and Olivia definitely felt that way.”
One of the more controversial Plath sons is 23-year-old Ethan.
He is known as one of the rebellious children and in November of 2020, opened up about being estranged from his ‘toxic’ parents and how he was “not allowed” to see his siblings.
“It really does hurt not being able to see them. That’s really hard, and it’s very, very frustrating. I have a lot of frustration that I am trying to deal with, like, why am I not allowed to see my siblings unsupervised?” he said.
His wife Olivia added, “During last year, we were allowed to see the kids some, and then last fall, everything just completely changed and we were not allowed to see the kids at all. It was just toxic.”
As they grew as a couple, they decided they needed space from Barry and Kim.
At the end of season 2, Ethan was seen in a heated argument with his father over how the family treated his wife and many fans were shocked when he signed on for the third season.
Hosanna, 21, is the eldest daughter of Barry and Kim.
While she is apart of the Plath family, she is notably absent from the show.
“She got married at a young age and moved off with her husband and started her life somewhere else,” sister Moriah told Us Weekly.
“And she didn’t want to be on the show, and we were kind of all just, like, yeah, I mean, it’s her life … Sometimes we keep in touch to some extent, but it’s also, like, she’s across the country and, you know, it would just be a hassle and she doesn’t want to be on the show.”
Hosanna lives in Ohio with her husband Timothy Noble while her family lives in Georgia.
Not much is known on Hosanna’s occupation or if she will make an appearance in season 3.
Like his older brother, Micah, 20, also stepped away from the family’s dynamite to pursue his own career.
Micah currently works as a model and is seen quite frequently in the gym in his recent Instagram posts.
In July 2021, Micah was featured on the cover of Boylicious Magazine.
Moriah, 18, is known as the independent sibling and also followed in her siblings footsteps and moved away from the family.
Her and her brother Micah revealed to Fox News that “everything has changed” since moving away from their parents.
“I’m pretty sure we don’t do anything that we used to do and we do everything that we weren’t able to do,” Moriah said.
Despite moving away, Moriah is still close to her parents and told Fox she is “appreciative” of her parents for allowing her to create her own path.
According to her instagram page, Moriah is a “public figure,” and even started a YouTube channel that has almost 5,000 subscribers.
She is currently in a relationship with entrepreneur Max Kallschmidt who will also be seen in season 3 of Welcome to Plathville.
Lydia is known as the pleasing one of the family. While she agrees with her parent’s parenting style, she also supports her siblings.
While Lydia is known for following her parent’s rules, she convinced her then back in season 2 to get a cell phone so she could stay in contact with her siblings who have left the house.
Kim agreed to getting her a basic phone as long as it did not have the ability to access the internet.
Lydia is currently 17 years old.
Issac, 14, is the youngest son of the Plath family.
While he still lives at home with his parents, Issac is often seen bonding with his older brother Ethan, despite the family conflicts.
Not much information is available on the teenager.
Amber, Cassia, and Mercy Plath
The younger Plath siblings can be found living at home with their parents.
Not much information is available on the youngsters.
Amber is currently 10 years old while Cassia is 8 and the youngest Plath sister, Mercy, is only 6.
Did Barry and Kim have a 10th child?
While the show focuses on the nine Plath children, Barry and Kim had 10th child together.
Their son Joshua Plath, passed away when he was only 17 months old.
Kim had accidentally ran over Joshua while doing yard work on the farm, not releasing he was underneath the Suburban.
“I looked for our 17-month-old Joshua, saw that he was away from the vehicle, then pulled forward to get the next tree,” Kim recalled on their family website.
“In a panic, I realized what had happened. I ran over our Joshua.”
Joshua’s death was ruled an accident by the local sheriff’s office.
