Kate Gosselin: Returning to TLC For Kate Plus 8 Catch-Up Special! No Jon!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Kate Gosselin is returning to TLC with her brood, the network announced. A one-hour special this summer will catch us up on Kate Plus 8 ... and Minus Jon.

"In 2007, viewers first fell in love with one of the most talked about families in reality television history," the network shared of the Gosselin family in a release.

The Pennsylvania-based duo rapidly rose to fame, raising Cara and Mady, now 13, and sextuplets, Alexis, Hannah, Aaden, Collin, Leah, and Joel, age 9.

The couple then dominated news with their off-screen antics, and bitter divorce in 2009. Jon & Kate Plus 8 became Kate Plus 8, then ended in 2011.

The TLC special will get Jon & Kate fans "up to speed" on what has changed since, including how the kids have grown, and Kate's "evolving life and career."

Finally, TLC plans to take a "look back" at some of the most memorable, "poignant family moments" experienced by the Gosselins through the years.

Don't expect Jon and Kate to appear on screen together in many of those.

Not surprisingly, there was no mention of Jon Gosselin's name; Jon has firmly held his ground and spoken out against his children being on reality TV.

He did, however, just star on Couples Therapy with girlfriend Liz Janetta.

Jon made quite an impression there too, unleashing a profane rant about his "narcissistic" ex, saying that Kate Gosselin can f---ing die for all he cares.

Kate has also joined the Celebrity Apprentice cast for 2014 ... obviously.

The TLC special of the Gosselin family will air in June, so it should be an eventful spring for Kate on TV, and Jon bashing the crap out of her for it.


Can't wait to watch. Kate is the person that many people have chosen as someone to hate but the reality is that no one would come across perfect if they were watched raising their kids. The kids act like normal children. Every moment of bad additude, shyness or frustration isn't some sign of being damaged. It's called being a teenager. Yes their life is different & some things are worse for the public their in but they have had so much good from being the public eye as well. I imagine the kids lives would be better if they didn't have so many people wanting to tear down the people they love the most in the world. Having someone you love so brutally torn apart is not something easily witnessed as they are half of you. People should try kindness. No one makes anyone watch. We all chose for ourselves.

I guess you reality show guys don't get it that WE DO NOT want to see Kate Gosselin and her brood EVER again! What's wrong with you people? Did you her and her 2 teenage girls on the Today Show not long ago? It was a disaster! Those kids just want to be left alone. Kate is a horrible person, it's all about her, she's mean to the kids and mean to everyone else around her. Please reconsider and don't do this because NOBODY is going to watch and you need to understand that. Watch her when she was on DWTS and how horrible she was to everyone, none of them liked her, and I felt so badly for her dance partner, Tony who is the nicest guy ever! Please Please Please, don't do this! We are begging you!

@ Nancy Burian

I agree totally, NO MORE, no one with any intelligence will watch, it is so so boring. If mother has any more plastic bits and goes out in the sun too long she'll CRACK!!! Please TLC NO MORE and while your at it how about cutting the financial aid to the DUGGARS And the BROWNS. We need some intelligent TV not this load of rubbish encouraging these people to continue on their destructive ways. There is no welfare in the US which is why these people need to spread themselves all over the screen and get all they can out of the silly people who think they are watchable. Have watched a few episodes on all three and am disgusted at what they get paid for inflicting their disgusting ways on TV.


the are amazing keep it up Kate and Jon needs to let them film the kids and let it be on tv again I miss the show.




so they hate Pedophiles now?
