Meet Lifetime's ‘The Sisterhood’ Cast Before These Ladies Start Their Journey Into the Habit
From Orange is the New Black to Jane the Virgin to Call the Midwife, nuns are kind of having a moment on TV shows these days, so it was only a matter of time before reality TV got in on the sister act. Lifetime's new docuseries The Sisterhood: Becoming Nuns is the first to answer that call.
Premiering Tuesday, Nov. 25 at 10 p.m., The Sisterhood follows five young women as they go through the first step toward becoming a nun: discernment. During discernment, the ladies will live and work in various convents across the country for six weeks, at the end of which they will decide if they want to continue on in the hopes of becoming America's Next Top Sister... or actually just a regular nun without all of the reality show trimmings.
Over the course of six weeks, these women will observe the vows of chastity, poverty, and obedience, which also means no makeup or (gasp!) cell phones. As you can probably guess from the fact that Lifetime decided to make a reality show out of this process, it's not going to be easy. Click through to meet the ladies who are brave enough to go on this spiritual journey.
