"Breaking Amish," TLC's hit series about young Amish people who leave their families to experience life in the "English," or modern world., is back for a second season. This time, the cast will head to Los Angeles instead of New York, where they'll decide whether to stay in the outside world or return to their communities.

"This season features brighter skies -- and darker secrets -- as the cast leave their homes and venture west to live together, experiencing a lot of fake firsts along the way," TLC said in a statement.

Though they share similar backgrounds, they find their lives to be very different, and must not only work to adjust to a new city, but to each other as well. Their entire lives are at stake, as their family, faith, and community may reject them completely based on the decision to venture west.

The five-person cast includes Betsy, a 21-year-old from Ohio who was adopted into the Amish community as a baby. Another cast member, Ava, saw her father leave the Amish when her parents divorced. Matt, 24, is a Mennonite who wants to pursue his passion for fashion design.

"Breaking Amish: LA" premieres June 21 at 10 p.m. ET.
