MTV dropped some major ‘Teen Mom’ Franchise news this week by officially announcing the new combination show now titled ‘Teen Mom: The Next Chapter,‘ along with some announcements about the other spin-offs.
The network confirmed that the casts of ‘Teen Mom OG‘ and ‘Teen Mom 2‘ (minus Kailyn Lowry and Mackenzie McKee) will be coming together for the new series that will focus more on their lives as adult women and moms and less on the “teen.” MTV shared the following about ‘Teen Mom: The Next Chapter.‘
“The casts of Teen Mom OG and Teen Mom 2 are each currently in different stages of motherhood – some have kids in diapers, while others are now parenting teenagers! But they all share the unique experience of momming so young. For the first time, the moms and all their stories will be brought together in one supersized series that focuses on the unique bond they share as they face the reality of parenthood and adulting while entering new phases of life together.“
MTV says the new show will be premiering “in the near future.” According to The Ashley’s Reality Roundup, it’s being planned to premiere alongside the next season of ‘Teen Mom Young and Pregnant‘ which has also been renewed for another season and is likely to begin in June.
‘Teen Mom 2‘-star Kailyn Lowry declined to join but poor Mackenzie McKee of ‘Teen Mom OG‘ was not even asked. We still have no idea why the network has ghosted Mackenzie but as of right now she will not be a part of the new series or any of the other ‘Teen Mom‘ shows.
On ‘Teen Mom Young and Pregnant,‘ MTV describes the upcoming season: “Young moms navigate the highs and lows of parenthood in an all-new season. The group meets up in person for the first time in Los Angeles, where they form bonds and learn to lean on each other through the trials of family dysfunction, absentee partners, relationship woes and all of the responsibilities that come with having a child. When it feels like there’s nowhere else to turn, these moms have each other.“
‘Teen Mom Family Reunion‘ has been renewed for a season 2 which will take place in the mountains! The new season is described as being the “ultimate summer retreat” for the moms. No word yet on who exactly will be featured this season but, “along with having fun and reconnecting, they’ll also confront some of their most contentious and complicated family relationships. Get ready to hit the trails and prepare for a bumpy ride!“
‘Teen Mom Girls Night In’ will also return for another season. “Ever wondered what the Teen Moms REALLY think of the moms on the other series? In this show, moms from Teen Mom 2 will watch their predecessors, the OGs, and unleash their personal opinions on the biggest moments from the past season.“
