Weddings and christenings, noisy and amusing parties come to be wrapped up in the American show titled “My Big Fat American Gypsy Wedding”. The series is a long-running project on TLC and thus can be reckoned as quite successful being in demand.
Brief review of the reality show
As the reality show, My Big Fat American Gypsy Wedding has been broadcasted on the American channel called TLC since spring 2012. Thus, a conclusion can be made that the series is in demand so far.
The series idea was taken from the British project named shortly as “My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding” available on Channel 4 in the United Kingdom. Therefore, it is an international franchise already.
The series creation is fully behind Jenny Popplewell (That’s So Last Week, Bad Boy Racers). She is also performing the duties of an executive together with Jes Wilkins (Little Shop of Gypsies) and Sam Emmery (MacIntyre’s Underworld).
The premiere of the first season was held in April 2012 and of the latest one in February 2015. So it is high time to declare the renewal for the fifth chapter.
What is the concept?
The series focus is on gypsy and traveler communities in the North America. There they should keep their existence in secret. Nevertheless, the members of this communities practice the frequently misunderstood groups’ rite-of-passage events, including communions, weddings, and christenings.
As for the concrete events portrayed in the TV show, they are basically weddings of American Roma (gypsies), mostly of the Romanichal ethnic group.
What is portrayed in the latest chapter?
The fourth chapter is so far the latest one premiering more than a year ago. In that circle, we were to follow a clash erupting between generations at a sweet-16 party specifically between a girl and her grandmother. Then a bride is set to make a statement for the ages with an elaborate wedding dress.
Another part of the chapter featured a mother being unwilling to follow the law when arranging a marriage of her 16-year-old daughter. The traditions of the family come to be tested by the birth of a Romanichal baby.
As for the current situation
The current situation can only propose to us waiting for the news to come off as soon as possible. The creators of this TV show are unwilling to expose any piece of info, much to our regret. The thing can be in their doubts about the worthiness of the project. The ratings are not clear, as its official exposal has not been held. Therefore, we are left in the cold with the tiny hope that the My Big Fat American Gypsy Wedding season 5 release date will become defined sometime in the future. Can it be a near future? Or the project is put on hold so far? The cancellation is also possible but we should be more optimistic. In any case, let us wait for the formal data. That is why we recommend you staying tuned together with our service if you are eager to obtain news timely.
