Teen Mom 2 Season 6 looks like it's a go on MTV sometime later this year or early next. Jenelle Evans, Kailyn Lowry, Leah Messer and Chelsea Houska are all in!
Producers had planned to end the MTV hit series after the current fifth season, which itself began after a long hiatus and uncertainty regarding the show's future.
Due to increased popularity, however, they've had a change of heart, and unlike the original Teen Mom set, all four stars are now on board for a sixth round.
“Producers saw that ratings were so high,” a source explained.
“And now there’s a whole new crop of drama: Jenelle Evans is pregnant, and Leah and Jeremy are talking divorce. It would be foolish to stop filming now.”
Well, that sums the situation up rather succinctly, doesn't it?
Evans is expecting her first child with boyfriend Nathan Griffith, a boy to be named Kaiser, in late June. Her son Jace, 4, lives with Evans’ mother Barbara.
Mother-of-three Messer has admitted to “struggles” in her marriage to second child, Jeremy Calvert, while Kailyn Lowry welcomed her second child recently.
You can watch Teen Mom 2 online at TV Fanatic to see that play out. Teen Mom 2 Season 6 will premiere at an unknown date; Season 5 is still underway.
It's unclear if the first Teen Mom will return to the air, however.
Amber Portwood, Maci Bookout and Catelynn Lowell reportedly told MTV to fire Farrah Abraham if they want the rest of them back, so that doesn't bode well.
