Amish Mafia Season 2 slated to begin Tuesday, Aug. 13 at 9pm ET/PT The Discovery Channel docuseries that puts the spotlight on the “risky underbelly” of the so-called Amish Mafia returns next month. The series was one of Discovery’s highest rated freshman series ever, and certainly a topic that generated plenty of crazed comments on the personalities involved.
In Season 2 Lebanon Levi and his team of enforcers are back to preserve the peace in their Lancaster, PA, community, however, not without some serious drama and bullying. Press materials detail that the new season will find Levi continuing to maintain the order as he seeks to keep outside forces from infiltrating his community. When Levi’s right-hand man Alvin is arrested in Florida, and with Jolin, a trained fighter with deep ties to both the Amish and Mennonite, gone — Levi’s left to rebuild his team.
Enter new cast member or Mafia member, Caleb, who is described as a young and troubled member of the Brethren community. Levi will need all the help he can get because apparently the newly unshunned Merlin has set his sights on taking over Lancaster and bringing Levi down. Not a good idea, right!?!
But Discovery tells that Merlin is not Levi’s only problem. In fact, Levi’s former friend Alan is released from prison and believes that Levi turned him into the local authorities, leading to his four month stint in jail. In addition to Levi’s rivalries, this season will also continue to document the plight of Esther and her brothers John and Freeman. Esther apparently returns from North Dakota with her brothers in tow, ready to reclaim her family’s once proud name. But with John on the run from Levi and rumors of Freeman’s demonic possession surfacing, Esther will be forced with a difficult decision. And that’s just the start of this real Amish mafia … Ughh!
