A Friend of the Family Season 1: It Might Renewed in October 2022!

In the new true-crime show A Friend of the Family, the terrible things that happened to Jan Broberg Felt as a child are shown on screen again. If you haven’t heard of Jan Broberg or seen the Netflix documentary Abducted in Plain Sight, let us tell you about his terrifying story as a young boy.

Robert Berchtold, a family friend and neighbor, took her when she was 12 and 14. Even more shocking is that Jan’s father, Bob Broberg, later admitted in Vanity Fair that he had a romantic relationship with Berchtold (opens in new tab).

Now, unlike when people watched Abducted in Plain Sight and yelled at their TVs in disbelief that this could happen to one family, the new series might give us a better idea of what was going on at the time and show how a sly predator can trick and take advantage of a family.

Jan even said this about the project in a statement on the Oxygen website, which opens in a new tab:

“We were a smart, loving, and trusting family. We weren’t dumb or sloppy. So how could this happen in our neighborhood, where everyone was friendly, and we knew everyone? The truth is that most predators are not strangers but people we know. These people can gain our trust, make us feel close to them, and psychologically separate us from our family members.”

Here is what we know about the movie A Friend of the Family.

Here is a list of all the episodes of the show. As new information comes to us, we’ll add it to the page.

A Friend of the Family Season 1

“Horseback Riding in American Falls” is the first episode.
“After school, a trusted family friend picks up Jan to take her horseback riding. As night falls and they’re still not home, what seemed like a normal afternoon becomes a nightmare.”

Episode 2: “The Mission” “The search for Jan becomes more problematic when the Brobergs call the FBI. Jan has a disturbing job that could mean life or death.

“The Gift of Tongues” is the third episode.
“The Berchtolds and Brobergs get closer, but when Mary Ann and the girls start to like their fun-loving neighbor, Bob starts to worry about him.”

“Articles of Faith” is the 4th episode.
“The Brobergs try to get back to normal as they prepare to court against B.”\

A Friend of the Family About

Peacock says the following about the plot of A Friend of the Family:

“A Friend of the Family is based on the terrifying true story of the Broberg family, whose daughter Jan was kidnapped over the years by a charismatic and obsessed family “friend.” The Brobergs cared deeply about their faith, family, and community.

They were utterly unprepared for the sophisticated ways their neighbor took advantage of their weaknesses, drove them apart, and turned their daughter against them. This story is about how their lives changed forever and how they made it through.”

A Friend of the Family cast

Hendrix Yancey and Jake Lacy are the main characters in this story. They play a young Jan Broberg and her kidnapper, Robert “B” Berchtold. Yancey was in Stranger Things and Charming the Hearts of Men before. The Ricardos and The White Lotus are just two of Lacy’s most recent works.

Here is a list of the other main actors in A Friend of the Family and the roles you can expect them to play.


The last scene of “Articles of Faith” was a big moment that viewers were sure to react in a big way. Here are some guesses about what could happen next:

  • There are already a lot of problems in the Brobergs’ marriage, and Mary Ann having an affair with Robert is sure to make things worse.
  • The District Attorney and the FBI are already very angry with the Brobergs for being too close to Robert and his family.
  • After getting back in touch with the family, there are likely to be some angry reactions.
  • Robert will definitely use his friendship with Mary Ann to reach out to Jan.
  • Given how the 1970s were, it’s likely that Bob will face some kind of social backlash if people find out about his “sinful moment” with Robert.
