Plot Synopsis

OUTDAUGHTERED is a one-hour reality series that follows Danielle and Adam Busby -- and their adorable 4-year-old daughter Blayke -- as they adjust to their new life, while trying to hold on to the identities and lives they had cultivated before welcoming America's first all-female set of quintlets: Ava, Hazel, Olivia, Parker and Riley. Following the hilarious and heartwarming antics of the entire family including Danielle's zany mother, Michelle, and her older twin sisters and their families, it's all hands on deck as the family relies on their tight-knit circle to make the most out of this incredible lifetime adventure. This series chronicles their journey of infertility and the celebration that followed when they learned they were having quints. From preparing for the birth to the three long months in the NICU, the series focuses on the babies' delivery and then the first few months at home after their world is turned upside down. Now, Adam and Danielle adjust to their new life and soon realize that a new home is a much needed next step. House hunting is difficult, though, when you are working against a tight budget. Viewers also get a peek into the first family photo shoot with the quints, and even though grandmother Michelle comes around to help, her tardiness sends the family into chaos. When Adam returns to work, one of the babies gets sick, and Danielle realizes how different life at home with the quints is without her partner in crime. Thankfully, her two sisters, Ashley and Crystal, are around to pitch in and keep Danielle sane as the family relies on each other to navigate this chaotic journey.

OUTDAUGHTERED returned for its second season on Tuesday, November 15, 2016 from 9-11pm ET/PT on TLC, with a special two-hour season opener. This season, the quints are walking, crawling, climbing, and in general giving Adam and Danielle a run for their money. There's never a dull moment for them -- everything from mealtime and bath time, to trips to the grocery and family outings has become more of a challenge. As if little everyday tasks aren't enough for the Busbys, they are faced with making hard decisions, especially when it comes to Hazel who was recently diagnosed with an eye condition. Also, Danielle's mother has some news that turns the stress up for the family. Although things can be tough at times, there is still plenty to be excited about - Danielle and Adam celebrate their 10-year anniversary, Blayke starts an exciting adventure in kindergarten and they plan their first big family vacation. With so many things to look forward to, life being OUTDAUGHTERED is just getting sweeter. In the two-hour season opener, "Catching Up with the Quints," viewers catch up all on the exciting milestones the family hit between season one and now. It becomes clear that the Busby way of life has certainly changed since the newborns became toddlers. It is also evident that Hazel is still behind her sisters in many ways. She is the only one not walking, and her eye condition has become more prominent. After a visit to the eye specialist, Adam and Danielle have a big decision on their hands. Thankfully, both of Danielle's sisters now live within walking distance to their new house, which makes for a great support system. Later in the episode, the whole family gathers for a birthday party, but Danielle notices her mom is not her normal self. When she confronts her to find out what's wrong, Danielle learns that her mom lost her job and some big changes are coming.
