Amish Mafia star Esther Schmucker reassured fans she will return for the show's third season despite the physical abuse she recently suffered at the hands of her boyfriend.

Filming for the Discovery show began recently in Lancaster County, Penn, and Schmucker said she will not miss any of it. The reality star took to Facebook and posted a photo of herself injury-free on Nov. 18. The image shows her dressed in traditional Amish wardrobe with no signs of damage on her face. She captioned the shot "I'm all fixed up and back with a bang!!! :)"

The 27-year-old was reportedly beaten in the early morning hours of Halloween by her boyfriend, 24-year-old rapper Imir R. Williams, also known as Mirkat. Schmucker did not report the attack for several days due to reports that Williams stood guard over her to make sure she didn't file charges. After he fled, she reported the abuse to police.

Authorities arrested Williams on Nov. 6 and charged with felony aggravated assault after giving Schmucker multiple injuries, Enstars previously reported. She suffered a fractured cheekbone, a broken nose and multiple broken teeth, among other things.

It was not the first time Schmucker had filed charges against Williams for abusing her. She reportedly filed three prior protection-from-abuse orders, which were dropped when Schmucker failed to appear in court.

Schmucker is also using her recent trauma to call other women to action and encourage them to not stand for the kind of abuse she has gone through.

"If there is ANY woman out there that reads this I just want to tell you that if you are currently in a relationship and going through what I have just went through the past 6 months, please walk away before it gets as far as it did for me." She posted on Facebook on Nov. 17. "If someone is constantly telling you that you are a terrible person, or calls you names, or puts hands on you for the love of God please go to someone you can trust and tell them and ask them to help you.

"Because YOU are beautiful and no one deserves that. Remember the person that you REALLY are beyond the hurt you are experiencing. There's people that care and love you. Be Blesses, Be happy, and be YOU."

Amish Mafia returns to Discovery with a special Christmas episode later this year. Season 3 will air in 2014.
