I am excited to learn that the TV program “Born This Way” (BTW) is still going strong.

NEW YORK, NY –  April 18, 2017 – A&E Network’s critically-acclaimed and Emmy® award-winning original docu-series “Born This Way” returns for a third season with back-to-back hour-long episodes on Tuesday, May 16 at 9PM and 10PM ET/PT.  New episodes will continue in the 10 PM ET/PT time slot the following week for the remainder of the season.

Produced by Bunim/Murray Productions, the series follows a group of seven young adults born with Down syndrome along with their family and friends in Southern California. “Born This Way” provides an intimate look at a diverse group of young men and women with Down syndrome as they pursue their passions and lifelong dreams, explore friendships, romantic relationships and work, all while defying society’s expectations. The series also gives voice to the parents, allowing them to talk about the joy their son or daughter brings to their family, and the challenges they face in helping them live as independently as possible.

That was 2017. On to A&E in 2018.

I checked with my local market (S Texas—Rio Grande Valley), served by Spectrum TV. When I searched for the listing nothing came up. What does that mean? The series is not being shown during the summer, but if will be available as part of the fall lineup. Meanwhile here are the results of a Google search to help you learn more about the show. It was shown the first half of 2018 and will return this fall to pick up on the adventures of our favorite young men and women with Down syndrome.,

Born This Way opens in August 15, 2018 on A&E. Here’s the pitch:

Winner of the 2016 Emmy Award for Outstanding Unstructured Reality Program, Born This Way follows a group of seven young adults born with Down syndrome as they pursue their passions and lifelong dreams, explore friendships, romantic relationships and work, all while defying society’s expectations.

In their willingness and courage to openly share their lives, through a lens that is not often shown on television, we learn they have high hopes just like anyone else. The series also gives voice to the parents, allowing them to talk about the joy their son or daughter brings to their family, and the challenges they face in helping them live as independently as possible
