You may recall the articles in 2014 about a new reality show (“Thicker Than Water”) starring gospel jazz musician Ben Tankard and his family. “A family that lives together…stays together” – is this a true statement or not? Bravo Media’s “Thicker Than Water” season two will premiere on Sunday, January 4, 2015 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT. and you will have the opportunity to see if this statement is legitimate or not.
Season two (take a look at some scenes here) features the unpredictable Tankard clan as they continue to live their lives as best as they can with their strong religious convictions at hand. Ben and Jewel Tankard are back, leading their self-proclaimed “Black Brady Bunch” family with children: Brooklyn, Britney, Benji, and Cyrene. Joining the family in the “Tankard Palace” is Ben’s oldest son, Marcus, who returns to Tennessee with his wife, Tish, to a warm welcome from everyone — except Britney.
About the show: Preacher and patriarch Ben celebrates a year of milestones this season as he turns 50 and his 25th anniversary in music is fast approaching. At the same time, he deals with the twists and turns that come with fatherhood. The real ruler of the household, Jewel, faces what the kids are calling a midlife crisis as she copes with her golden girl and youngest, Cyrene, leaving for college and a rift with her sister that threatens to divide the family. The eldest daughter of the Tankard clan, Brooklyn, finally comes into her own as an entrepreneur, channeling big ideas into money-making opportunities and taking the hair industry by storm. Healthier than ever, Britney embarks on a transformative fitness journey, and when the return of Marcus opens up old wounds, she stands ready to confront her traumatic past. Recently married Benji is motivated to follow in his father’s financially successful footsteps while itching to start a family of his own. An old soul and born leader, Marcus is more concerned with making a difference than with making millions, and when his family discovers the secret he brought home with him, it changes the Tankards forever.
Beginning Monday, January 5 – Friday, January 9, 2015, fans can join the Tankard Family throughout the week for a series of live Facebook Q&A’s on the Thicker Than Water Facebook Page. Viewers will get the inside scoop on the family, the drama and what to expect from the upcoming season.
