Video: New Season of UP Original Series, “Bringing Up Bates”


Wow, The Brady Bunch doesn’t have anything on the star family of UP’s Inspirational Original Series, “Bringing Up Bates”! The Bates family consists of Gil and Kelly Jo Bates, along with their astounding 19 children, ranging in ages from two to 25. As you will see, when you have a house full of 19 children, daily chaos is multiplied exponentially, but so are the joyful and poignant moments that life can bring.

The new season will explore new, ever-changing family dynamics as the Bates celebrate the birth of the first grandchild with son Zach (25) and his wife Whitney; foster the courtship of Michaella (24) and Brandon Keilen by allowing him to share an extended visit with the family during the holiday season; support Erin (23) and her husband Chad Paine as they face a health issue that challenges their hope of starting a family; check in on newlywed Alyssa (19) as she finds her way in Florida with new husband, John Webster, the son of a U.S. Congressman and makes a surprise announcement; encourage Tori (18) to bring order to the family schedule and step up to meet the challenges of child training as her parents have become more lax in their later years.

Meet The Bates below and check out a preview of all the choas! “Bringing Up Bates” airs Thursdays at 9 pm EST on UP.
