TV show description:
Based on the Australian drama series Sisters, the Almost Family TV show explores what it means to be a family and the potential emotional complications that new generations of In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) children can face.
In the series, Julia Bechley (Snow) is an adult only child who has her world turned upside down. She learns that her father, Doctor Leon Benchley (Hutton), a pioneer in fertility, secretly used his own sperm to father over a hundred children.
While still reeling from this revelation, Julia discovers that she has two new half-sisters — her former best friend, Edie Palmer (Echikunwoke), and ex-Olympic athlete Roxy Doyle (Osment). As the three daughters begin to reconcile their new reality, Julia starts life without having her dad by her side, Edie comes to grips with her sexuality, and Roxy faces adulthood out of the spotlight.
The trio attempt to bond as unconventional sisters while dealing with new siblings as part of a rapidly expanding and very untraditional extended family.
Episode #13 — Expectant AF
Roxy makes a drastic decision in an attempt to help Isaac; Edie settles in with Amanda, but things get messy when she discovers something that isn’t in the plan.
First aired: February 22, 2020
