‘Amish Mafia’ Season 4 News Update: Claims Show Is Fake Resurface Amid Series Finale Talk? [VIDEO]

As fans of Amish Mafia wait to hear if the show will be returning with its full cast for a fourth season, the show is once again facing scrutiny that it is a completely fake series.

Discovery Renews 'Amish Mafia' For Season 4 Despite Cast Threatening Not To Film?

In an article in the Fayetteville Observer, a fan's question about the show's cast and whether or not they were paid actors who were genuinely Amish, led to a revealing answer about ways the show is not true.

The article notes that cast members including Merlin Miller, Lebanon Levi Stoltzfus and Esther Schmucker are not genuinely Amish. While they were raised in Amish homes, they never joined the church, giving them the ability to do things the traditional and religious Amish do not.

While the cast members themselves have come out on the show before to detail that they were never baptized in Amish churches, the article goes on to point out that Amish experts have called the show's entire premise "ridiculous" in the past.

"It's just sort of an example of the foolishness and stupidity and lies-misrepresentations, I should say-that are promoted (about the Amish) in television," Messiah College professor David Weaver-Zercher was quoted as saying back in a 2012article.

While the cast continues to fight assertions that the show is fake, they appear to also be fighting with the producers and crew of their hit television series as well. In a preview clip for the season 3 finale episode airing April 8, the crew is threatened by the cast and ordered to leave.

Watch the clip below to see the drama between the cast and crew go down.

Amish Mafia airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. on Discovery.
