Plot Synopsis

Little people Matt and Amy Roloff may be four feet tall, but they are determined to succeed in a world that wasn't made for them. Raising four children, including teenage twins Zach (little person) and Jeremy (average height), they operate a 34-acre farm, and face the pressure of being little in an average sized world. LITTLE PEOPLE, BIG WORLD returned for a new season on Tuesday, October 29, 2013 at 9pm ET/PT on TLC, with children Jeremy, Zach, and Molly joining Jacob at home for the summer, which reunites the family on the farm for the first time in two years. The family works together to plan the most memorable weddings for four new couples who intend to tie the knot at Roloff Farms. Patriarch Matt will be faced with some health issues that could put his ability to run the farm in jeopardy. And he, Amy and the children will also support one another as they deal with an upsetting diagnosis for another member of the family. Then, as the summer comes to an end and the kids head back to college, Matt and Amy find themselves alone once again reevaluating their relationship. On Tuesday, September 2, 2014 at 10pm ET/PT, TLC premiered a new season of LITTLE PEOPLE, BIG WORLD. In the season opener, "The Proposal," it's springtime and big changes are in bloom at Roloff farm. Matt and Amy keep a united front at Jeremy's graduation; Amy seeks out a business venture of her own; and Jeremy decides to take his relationship with Audrey to the next level. Later in the season, the focus returns to the farm as the annual pumpkin season is on the horizon, as well as the family getting swept up in all of Jeremy's wedding preparations. But theirs won't be the only nuptials in the works when Zach also announces his intention to get engaged to his girlfriend, Tori. As the next generation prepares to start their new lives, Matt and Amy must reflect on the history of their marriage and the future of their relationship. The season culminates as Audrey walks down the aisle and into the Roloff family. LITTLE PEOPLE, BIG WORLD returned for its eleventh season on Tuesday, July 14, 2015 at 9pm ET/PT on TLC, as Amy and Matt Roloff face new challenges on their continued journey as they raise four children -- comprised of little and average-sized siblings -- while dealing with emotional and operational challenges on their farm in Portland, OR. This season the kids are grown and Jacob, the youngest and last child at home, is about to move out. In the midst of Matt and Amy's evolving relationship and empty nests, there is also celebration and joy blossoming on the farm. Another Roloff family wedding is right around the corner. In the season opener, the entire family comes together to help prepare the farm for the big day with Zack and Tori's wedding just a few months away. Matt and Amy are still unsure what the future holds for their relationship, and youngest son Jacob makes a huge announcement. On Tuesday, July 7 2015 -- one week before the official season premiere -- TLC debuted a two-hour special, "Jeremy & Audrey's Journey to I Do," during which Jeremy and Audrey gave viewers an intimate look into their relationship, from their first meeting up to the big wedding day. Plus, the entire Roloff family share never-before-seen home movies and behind-the-scenes stories. LITTLE PEOPLE, BIG WORLD returned for a new season on Tuesday, May 10, 2016 at 9pm ET/PT on TLC. Matt and Amy Roloff prepare to sign their final divorce papers, and new tensions arise like never before seen on the show. As they embrace their four kids getting older and leading lives of their own, they attempt to live on the same property while managing emotional and operational challenges in order to keep Roloff Farms in the family. This season we find Zach and Tori merging their lives together as newlyweds while Jeremy and Audrey settle into their new home in Bend, Oregon. Molly's graduation approaches and she contemplates her future after college. But Matt and Amy are headed for the biggest change of all as their divorce will become final. Amy seeks to redefine herself in this new phase of her life and decides to not only make over her kitchen but also her appearance. She throws a dinner party on the farm with dear friends and even considers getting a tattoo to commemorate what she calls her "second act." Matt tries to recapture good times with Jeremy and Zach by taking them on a boys' camping trip, but feels his mortality when he is forced to confront long-standing health issues. Season 12 of LITTLE PEOPLE, BIG WORLD premiered at 8pm ET/PT on TLC, immediately following "Countdown to the New Season," a new two-hour special (6-8pm) that features exclusive bonus scenes. In the twelfth season, Matt and Amy continue to live their separate yet interconnected lives: Matt having to slow down post-surgery, and Amy full steam ahead with her next chapter. This all while managing the emotional and operational challenges of running the farm. In the season premiere, "Gonna Be a Long Road," Matt gets ready to undergo a life-changing spinal procedure in Los Angeles. As the family prepares for the worst, another major event shakes the farm to the core. Amy, Zach and the rest of the family receive news that their essential and beloved farm foreman Camerino is being deported to Mexico, and can no longer work in the United States. Amy's friends urge her to experience everything that single life has to offer -- including dating. Amy isn't sure she's ready but dips her toe into the pool with a group singles outing, then plunges in headfirst by hosting her own party. And when a man asks her out, everything changes. Matt, always one to take on projects, installs surveillance cameras to keep a watchful eye on the farm at all times. Amy is a very vocal opponent of having her ex-husband's "big brother" cameras always watching. Matt also decks out a giant "preppers" box for emergencies, and engages the entire family to spend time in the bunker for a test run. Meanwhile, Zach and Tori wrap up their first year of marriage with a special anniversary road trip. Jeremy and Audrey continue to explore their freedom as a young married couple in Bend, while feeling the pull of their family and the farm. On Tuesday, May 2, 2017 at 9pm ET/PT, TLC premiered a new season of LITTLE PEOPLE, BIG WORLD immediately following "Countdown to the New Season," a new two-hour special. With not only one, but two grandchildren on the way, future grandparents Amy and Matt must also navigate divorced life while living 500 feet from each other and running the family farm together. This season viewers can look forward to Zach and Tori Roloff navigating pregnant life leading up to the birth of their first son; as the young couple struggles to get ready for the newest addition to the Roloff family, the major question looming is whether the baby will be a dwarf or not. Jeremy and Audrey Roloff have their own baby news with the surprise that they are pregnant with a baby girl. In addition, Amy is enthusiastically embracing her new role as grandmother and finds herself progressing in her relationship with her boyfriend Chris. Meanwhile, Matt has his own news to reveal that he too is in a relationship. In the season opener, "Navigating Pregnant Life," the family gathers to learn the gender of Zach and Tori's baby, and both Matt and Amy navigate romantic relationships post-divorce. Plus, Jeremy an Audrey ponder where to put down roots.
