Kate Plus 8 Premiere Date Announced

by at . Comments

Despite the objections of Jon Gosselin, Kate Plus 8 returns to the airwaves with all-new episodes beginning Monday April 4, TLC announced Tuesday.

In the hour-long season premiere, the infamous reality mom takes her eight kids on their most far-flung journey to date (one that Jon tried to halt).

We'll get to see the famous family ring in a New Year in Sydney, Australia.

BACK IN BUSINESS: Kate is back doing what she loves.

Other highlights of their down-under adventures include playing at the beach, quality time with Australian aborigines, freezing-cold ocean encounters with sharks; another camping trip (hopefully better than her Alaskan one) and more.

It's this kind of well-rounded, worldly experience Kate defended recently as she looked to deflect criticism of her show doing more harm than good.

What do you think? Are you excited it's coming back on?
