How many of you are eager for new episodes of Bringing Up Bates to return to UP TV? Come on now, don't be shy! We know how much you enjoy catching up with Gil and Kelly Bates and their 19 children every Thursday evening.

Season one of Bringing Up Bates, which includes thirteen episodes, premiered on New Year's Day 2015 and ran through March. Season two, which consists of fourteen episodes, picked up on June 4th and ended on September 3rd.

    6. I love this show also
      I really love how much this family loves one another so much! Also that my family is nothing like theirs, it's still very encouraging. I'm African American and I relate very easily with this family
      Bring it back already!!!!!

  5. would love for it to come on for an HOUR OR LONGER EACH WEEK. It seems like it no sooner comes on and it's time to be done. Will there be any reruns? I missed the season finale??

    1. Go on Demand. You can see lots of their shows and more than once. You can even rate the shows after you have watched them.

  6. The Bates have come to be my favourite family; however, it saddens me living in Canada I am unable to get UPTV. I wish there was some way those of us around the world could have access to the episodes, even if we had to pay a reasonable fee. Many Blessings!

    1. They have already had a show on TLC and it didn't work out.

    2. Are you kidding ? TLC is better. Have you watched the show that follows it. The Locator ? That is another great show !

      Delete
    3. I dont think TLC is better. I love the show how it is and a Christian channel seems to suit the family better.

  11. I love Bringing Up Bates and can't wait till it comes on again in January. For me it's one of the only shows I truly enjoy and really look forward to watching each week! They all just feel like "family" and I miss them when they're not on!

  12. I can't get the channel so I registered with GoMovies to see Bringing Up Bates! Only Season 1 is available at this time. Sadly, I won't catch the Bates-Keilen wedding until far too long after it shows on Up Tv. Having said that, I'm at least grateful to have some opportunity to watch it.

    1. Have a suggestion. Why don't you ask around. Maybe a family member, a friend or even a neighbor gets UP and ask if you can visit on Thursday night's. Bring snacks with you. Hey will love it !

  25. I'm surprised UP tv is taking as much as 4 plus months of Bringing Up Bates off of their Thursday line up this Fall and Winter, considering this was reported to be their top rated show. It seems a little strange to me. Maybe they are considering a holiday special using Michaella and Brandon's wedding and honeymoon to break up the long absence of the show?

    1. Maybe the family needs a break. They sure deserve it. With caring for their home. Their jobs. And taking care of their church... They have a lot cut out for them as it is, and besides, it's good to have something to look forward to.

      Delete
    2. I think it's for another reason. Most likely UP tv is trying to downplay other negative current events in the lives of 4 other like- minded famous families. Gives time for the public to cool down and UP to position BRinging Up Bates in a more positive light, distancing themselves from all the negative press. Unfortunately, the Bates themselves will have to do the distancing from institutions and I'm not sure that is going to happen.
      This is a critical time for the Bates family, their beliefs, and UP tv. I love this family and UP TV and hope they will all do the right thing.

  30. Hi Readers,

    We informed UP that we have lots of readers outside the US who would love to watch the show. We let you know if the network decides to make gMovies available to international viewers, as well as when season 2 is uploaded.

    2. Can't wait to see the new season. Nothing as good can I find on Cable. Look forward to Thursday nights. I love the whole family. So different from the Duggars. This family doesn't entertain us for ratings. They are the real deal. I pray they never change !
