What Ever Happened to ’16 & Pregnant?’


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!


  1. You should continue 16 and pregnant also! Most people enjoy both. Teen mom and 16 and prgenant. It does teach kids the struggles of becoming a teen mom. Something they don’t get to see there friends go through. I hope you seriously reconsider your decision.

  2. I love both shows. And I hope there come some new season of 16 and Pregnant. And maybe another Teen Mom show.

  3. Bring back all seasons and bring back 16& pregnant. And have longer seasons. They are too short or I have Teen Mom OG for 3 months then Teen Mom 2 for 3 months then Teen Mom 3 for 3 months and a new Teen Mom for 3 months. Then we can watch it all the time.
