Last year MTV was casting for a new season of ’16 and Pregnant.’ This time they had planned to follow 4 girls during their pregnancies over a full season instead of having a new girl for each episode so the show would be formatted more like ‘Teen Mom.’ Which I thought would be a great way to dive further into detail about pregnancy and all the hardships that can come with it for a teen girl. Apparently though, this idea has since been abandoned.
According to The Ashley’s Reality Roundup: MTV’s new Executive of Original Content, Michael Klein says they “haven’t really looked at that, to be honest.” The network is more concerned with giving the fans more seasons of ‘Teen Mom’ and ‘Teen Mom 2.’
“There is a very devoted audience for those series,” he said. “As long as our audience is seeking it, we listen to our audience.”
So while we wont be seeing any new teen moms any time soon (Which is a good thing right???) we will be continuing to see the stories of Maci, Farrah, Catelynn, Amber, Jenelle, Leah, Chelsea and Kailyn. For as long as they keep signing contracts anyway!
