Beloveds, Iyanla: Fix My Life is about to take another dramatic turn.
One of the most memorable — and dysfunctional — families ever featured on the OWN series is coming back for help and a multi-episode arc in the new season.
In part one, host and life coach Iyanla Vanzant reunites with the Mitchell family and finds they’ve fallen back into old patterns: Michael, Jr. has gone back to making lewd videos, Markis’ guilt about failing his family has led to a suicide attempt and one sibling went MIA.
During the second part, Iyanla sits down with the oldest sibling, Kizzy, to help her understand that she is no different from the mother who abandoned her; meanwhile, Iyanla addresses Michael, Jr. and Leronda to gain a greater understanding of an untreated mental health issue.
A trailer for the new season shows the family descending into chaos, prompting Vanzant to lose it. She stands and yells: “Shut up! Shut up! You want to act like park apes? You won’t do it here.”
The new season of Iyanla: Fix My Life premieres on Saturday, June 1 at 9PM ET/PT on OWN.
