Little People, Big World is returning for its 12th season on Nov. 22, and PEOPLE has an exclusive look at what audiences can expect to see from the Roloff family!

In the exclusive sneak peek, viewers discover that patriarch Matt Roloff is battling health issues and has to undergo a life-changing spinal procedure in Los Angeles. “He’s not healthy,” son Jeremy Roloff — who continues to live with his wife, Audrey, in Bend — reveals in the clip.

“This farm means everything to me. It’s frustrating to be stuck in the house. I’m like a little bit of a prisoner,” Matt says. Although he sports a neck brace, the father of four still finds the time to manage his farm — and hopes to install “60 or 70” cameras around the property so that he can “see what’s going on.”

Although the couple is now divorced, matriarch Amy Roloff continues to live on the same property with her ex-husband and shares her two cents about the camera situation. “I don’t understand the need for all of this camera stuff,” she tells Matt in the clip, who assures her that the purpose of the cameras is to be “focused on the bad guys.”

And while Zach’s bride of one-year, Tori, is ready to start a family of their own, he tells her that he wants to put on the breaks of them getting pregnant until “next summer,” to which Tori responds, “[Zach] is dragging his feet.”

Amidst overseeing all of the drama, excitement makes its way into Amy’s life when she manages to dedicates some time to herself — and starts dating again! “I find the single life at my stage right now all brand new,” Amy admits. Despite the single life feeling foreign to the mother of four, she chooses to put herself out there and participates in a singles outing. “I feel like I’m in high school again.”

“Be adventurous. Take a chance,” she says of her new mindset, which includes her going on date that ends with a kiss! ”
