Will 1000-Lb Sisters get a new cast member this year?

When 1000-Lb Sisters first premiered, the show centered around sisters Tammy Slaton and Amy Halterman. Over time, their other siblings were added as cast members. Now, Chris Combs and Amanda Halterman almost have a bigger fanbase than Tammy and Amy.
