MTV Spin-off ‘Teen Mom Young + Pregnant’ will return for another season but without one of its previous cast members! Last season featured Brianna Jaramillo, Kayla Sessler, Rachel Beaver, and Kiaya Elliott, as well as the newest girls, Madisen Beith and Kayla Jones.
According to a source that spoke with The Ashley’s Reality Roundup Kayla Jones was cut from the show and will not appear on the new season. “Kayla [Jones] got dropped,” a source close to Kayla tells The Ashley. “They did not renew her contract so she won’t be in the new 12 episodes. She was disappointed, especially since she has so much happening in her life right now that would be good to film. But MTV made their choice so there’s really nothing she can do.”
Kayla’s storyline didn’t mesh with the overall theme of the ‘Teen Mom’ franchise and fans didn’t relate to her as much as the other moms. This prompted MTV to keep Madisen and let Kayla go.
“[The producers] feel like, because Kayla is older than Madisen, and because Kayla’s pregnancy was intentional, her story didn’t really catch on the way [the producers] had hoped,” A production source revealed. “The network thought that, because Kayla’s story included a transgender partner, it was timely and topical, but it just didn’t catch on.”
