The Bates are back! It's a season of new beginnings for the entire family. First, they travel to North Carolina to pick up Warden, Jackson, and Isaiah from sleepaway camp but not without getting a VIP tour from camp counselor and Tori's boyfriend, Bobby. Could a future courtship be on the horizon for Bobby and Tori? While at camp, the Bates have no idea what they're in for when they they're met with a giant scream-inducing swing and some wild water activities! Meanwhile, Lawson is focused on his music career. He heads back to the studio to record a duet with country artist Emily Ann Roberts. Later, the whole family gathers together for a special dinner and an unexpected guest stops by to surprise them with a big announcement!

  1. Can't wait. I still have to watch Season 4 yet. I'll be watching that on New Years Day.

  2. "Bates" is not plural! UP needs to change their episode description to "Bateses." Or just say "the Bates family." This drives me crazy and happens all the time.

    1. It's a title, and artistic license is being taken. Just relax and let it happen.

  3. Lily and Ellie, is the last show from 12/29 part of season 4? Year end special and will you have it available for us to watch. My recording of it didn't work.
    Thank you

    1. Hi there,

      When we checked last week, UP didn't have plans to release video clips from the episode. Sorry about that!

    2. darn, ok thanks. I missed the part of Nathan's favorite show.. I was trying to record it when he was talking. Caught the rest of it
