Following the news, fans took to Reddit to beg the network to create a spinoff show starring the family.
One user wrote: “I’m kind of sad the Winders aren’t back. They were a nice palate cleanser in between all the crazy. Disappointed that Ick is still lurking around.”
Another fan replied: “I wish TLC would give them their own show. Not even necessarily about adding a wife, I’d watch them meal planning and working on the farm. They’re so wholesome.”
A third fan agreed: “The Winders are the only polygamy family I’ve seen on TV that actually do plural marriage well.”
The fourth season of Seeking Sister Wife premiered on Monday.
Colton and his wives announced that they would not appear nearly two months earlier.
They shared the news on Instagram, writing: “As some of you have seen, we won’t be back for season 4 of Seeking Sister Wife.
“It makes sense to us why we weren’t picked back up, as we’ve seen the show is taking a different path.”
The statement continued: “We wish the other families well, and we’re grateful to TLC for the opportunity we had to tell our story, and we’ll continue to tell our story on our social media, faithfully and honestly.
“Thank you to all that have followed and supported us, and to those who continue to! We have some Winder family updates to share with you next Thursday, April 7th, so stay tuned!”

The post read: “As far as our family goes, we are frustrated that we have not been able to have more children yet.
