About the show
Little People, Big World is an American reality TV series that follows the Roloff family living on a farm near Portland, Oregon. Of the six family members featured on the show, mom Amy, dad Matt and one of their sons, Zach are living with dwarfism. Produced by Gay Rosenthal Productions, season 1 of Little People, Big World debuted on TLC on March 4, 2006.
Despite the sometimes bumpy road, Little People, Big World has a pretty successful run. The show follows Matt and Amy Roloff, who are considered little people, and their children — Zach who is also a little person, his fraternal twin Jeremy, sister Molly and brother Jacob who are all average height. Low ratings had nearly shut down the show in 2010 when TLC announced that season six will be the last. Following the season finale, several specials aired including an emotional special episode that showed Amy and Matt’s marriage crumbling after 26 years of marriage.
Little People, Big World season 10 returned to TLC on July 7, 2015 and has significantly focused on Jeremy and Audrey’s relationship. From their initial meeting to the eventual walk down the aisle, the show is now playing up another romance in an effort to keep the fans interested and the ratings up. Ironically the season premiere, titled “Jeremy & Audrey’s Journey to I Do” aired just one month after Amy and Matt officially filed for divorce. TLC has made no announcements regarding renewal of Little People, Big World season 11.
