Jill and Jessa Duggar: Returning to TLC With New Series!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Back in December, Jill and Jessa Duggar starred in a limited-run TLC series entitled Jill and Jessa: Counting On, along with their husbands.

It turns out that trial balloon was a success.

Many believed that the show was being treated as a test run of sorts to see if viewers would give the evangelical Duggar clan a second chance.

Following the horrific Josh Duggar sex scandals of last year, the prospects of the Arkansas family's return to the air seemed iffy at best.

It seems that TLC execs were more than satisfied with the audience response to Jill and Jessa's three-episode spinoff, however.

The network confirms that the Duggars are returning to TV full-time beginning next month, with the adult daughters as the focal point.

Producers have decided not to mess with a successful formula, and the new series will also be called Jill & Jessa: Counting On.

Initially, there were rumors that the show would focus on Jana Duggar and other, less famous members of the 19 Kids & Counting brood.

The titular Jill and Jessa will reportedly remain at the center of the series, though, with ample air time given to their siblings.

As you can see in the trailer above, the new series will feature lots of Duggars as they go about their daily lives in the Natural State.

It will not gloss over the scandals that stemmed from Josh Duggar and shook the family to its foundations over the past year, either.

According to Us Weekly, it's still a family affair through and through.

Jana, Jinger, Joy Anna, John David, Josiah, Joseph Duggar, and Josh's wife Anna Duggar have all filmed scenes for the show already.

The new version of Counting On is set to debut on TLC March 15.
