MTV has finally officially announced the return of ‘Teen Mom 2’ starring Leah Calvert, Jenelle Evans, Chelsea Houska and Kailyn Lowry! And of course all their adorable children.
“MTV’s groundbreaking docu-series, Teen Mom 2, returns for its highly-anticipated sixth season which follows Chelsea, Jenelle, Kailyn and Leah as they continue to navigate their complicated lives as young moms.” -Press release from MTV.
According to The Ashley’s Reality Roundup we can look forward to a completely different styled season thanks to the original ‘Teen Moms’ breaking the fourth wall on their show. Finally we will get to see behind the scenes of filming with these ladies which is sure to give us even more juicy details of their hectic lives!
‘Teen Mom 2’ returns Thursday July 9th at 10pm on MTV.
It’s official ’16 & Pregnant’ will never end… just kidding. Seriously though for how much this show has helped reduce teen pregnancy there are still plenty of pregnant teenagers for us to watch on TV.
Yes ’16 & Pregnant’ Season 6 is in the works and apparently it’s coming with a big twist! Instead of having individual one hour shows for each girl, the show will focus on four girls over an entire season. (Just like the ‘Teen Mom’ shows.) This should give us a closer look at the girls lives and how being pregnant in high school effects them.
Personally I think this is a great change for the show. It would be fantastic for the show to go into more detail about the struggles that a lot of young girls are unaware of. I think this will also give us time to be more invested in the girls that are featured and see more of each of their stories. It should also bring in more views each week. (Am I the only one that would miss an episode of ’16 & P’ once in a while but could NOT miss an episode of ‘Teen Mom?’)
What do you guys think? Will you be watching season 6?
Several of the ‘Teen Moms’ featured in 16 & Pregnant Season 5 took to social media to promote their “Where Are They Now?” Special. (Which you can watch HERE if you missed it!)
Autumn Crittendon shared on her Facebook Fan Page that MTV wanted the special to get at least 1 million views in order to be considered for a spin off.
Somehow… I find it highly unlikely that there will be another ‘Teen Mom’ show especially after the failure of ‘Teen Mom 3’ AND the fact that the original ‘Teen Mom’ and ‘Teen Mom 2’ cast are still filming their own new seasons.
According to a source that spoke with Teen Mom Junkies, “The Where Are They Now special would serve as an audition for a Teen Mom spinoff. In this way, the girls that received the most comments or publicity from the episode would be the ones that would be approached to fill a spot in the spinoff.“
There has been no official word from MTV about another show being in the works but it is a pretty interesting thought. Would you watch another ‘Teen Mom’ show? What did you think of the special?
Sad news for ‘Teen Mom 2’ fans, Leah Calvert has decided to no longer take part in the show, most likely due to the broken state of her marriage to second husband Jeremy Calvert.
Leah confirmed via Twitter that she will not go on to a season 6 of the show. An insider tells The Ashley’s Reality Roundup that Leah is scarred of airing another divorce on television because of the terrible backlash she has gotten from the first one. Sources also say that the show will go on with just the three remaining girls, Chelsea, Jenelle and Kailyn.
No premiere date has been set for ‘Teen Mom 2’ Season 6 but my guess is that it will air next year after the new season of the original ‘Teen Mom’ show.
UPDATE: It’s now being reported that Leah’s real reason for leaving the show is because she’s in real danger of loosing custody of her twin daughters Ali and Aleeah. The footage from the show is making Leah look bad according to an insider and Leah is “ready to leave her reality TV life behind.”
