It's the beginning of the end for Teen Mom's fabulous foursome - Maci Bookout, Farrah Abraham, Amber Portwood and Catelynn Lowell - on MTV this summer.

Though the Teen Mom franchise is sticking around on the network with its second (and soon-to-be third) ensembles, the four who started it all are bowing out.

The final season, premiering next month, promises big things for Amber, Maci, Farrah and Cate. Take a look at the trailer for their upcoming swan song below:

Among this season's new challenges:

  • Amber Portwood's suicide attempt, 911 calls, meltdowns in front of Gary, loss of custody of Leah, and ongoing legal woes (she's in jail right now).
  • Catelynn and her fiance Tyler Baltierra wonder if putting daughter Carly up for adoption really was the right decision ... EVERY SINGLE EPISODE.
  • Farrah moving to Florida with little Sophia.
  • Maci fighting with Ryan Edwards a lot.

It all starts June 12! Yeah, baby!

Amber Portwood is really leaving her mark in our celebrity mug shots gallery.

After the Teen Mom train wreck was jailed for lying about a medical condition to get out of a mandated drug court appearance, she posed for the police cameras once again ... whether she remembers this is a different story.

See below:

In her latest booking photos, Amber can be seen either blinking or looking very tired / strung out. Maybe she just can't bear to look at her life slipping away.

Amber appears on the brink of some serious punishment if the accusations of lying to the court turn out to be true. Either way, she's in pretty bad shape.

Amber told local officials she couldn't show up for her drug test as she was on doctor-ordered bed rest following gall bladder surgery for 2-3 weeks.

A good excuse ... only officials called her bluff and her doctor said no such thing had been ordered. She also pulled a drug-test no show in March.

Hope the food is okay in jail. She could be there awhile.

Troubled Teen Mom star Amber Portwood is back in an Indiana jail after local prosecutors claimed she lied about a medical condition to avoid a drug test.

As part of her probation, Portwood is required to undergo a weekly test and drug court appointment. She was apparently a no-show at last week.

Amber told officials that she was on doctor-ordered bed rest following laparoscopic gall bladder surgery and required to remains so for 2-3 weeks.

A good excuse ... if only it were legitimate.

Teen Mom's Amber Portwood

Amazingly, Amber Portwood's case manager didn't want to take the reality star's word for it. After he spoke to the doctor directly, he learned she lied.

The doctor insisted she WAS well enough to attend her court obligations, and Amber was immediately hauled back to jail for missing the appointment.

Because of the obvious violation of her probation, she's expected to stay behind bars for at least a few weeks until a judge decides the next step.

This isn't her first drug test no-show ... or legal issue stemming from her own lies. She also underreported her income to score government-subsidized housing.

Teen Mom star Amber Portwood has been ordered by a judge to pay money to compensate the real estate company that was suing to evict her. Why?

For lying about her income and qualifying, illegally, for government subsidized housing as a result of that lie. Some people will do anything for a buck.

While Portwood was in jail this winter, a rental company sued her for eviction after they saw she lied about her "low-income" status on her application.

Amber's income in 2010? A modest $280,000.

Amber and baby daddy Gary Shirley in happier times.

This disqualifies her from subsidized government housing, clearly, and an Indiana judge ruled in the rental company's favor in the case earlier this month.

Amber Portwood not bothering to respond to the suit probably didn't help her cause. She must pay the company back or face further legal consequences.

Otherwise it's back to the slammer, most likely, given that she's been on thin ice with probation as it is. At least jail is free, however. Food for thought.

It looks like Farrah Abraham, Amber Portwood, Catelynn Lowell and Maci Bookout will be calling it a career after the upcoming fourth season of Teen Mom.

MTV confirmed this in a statement Friday. If there's any confusion this means the fourth and final season for just the cast members mentioned above.

Teen Mom 2, featuring Jenelle Evans, Leah Messer, Chelsea Houska and Kailyn Lowry just aired its second season and may still receive a third on MTV.

The Teen Mom Stars

Meanwhile, there will be a Teen Mom 3, with the cast selected from members of the all-new 16 & Pregnant cast ... everybody clear on all this now?

"Season 4 will be the final season of Teen Mom with Maci, Catelynn, Amber and Farrah," MTV tells Us. "They will continue to be a part of our MTV family."

"We're thankful to these brave young women for sharing their stories and helping to make a positive impact on teen pregnancy prevention."

There's no specific date set for Season Four's premiere.

Sad to see the original stars retire? Amber Portwood's police run-ins should keep her in the news, but will we ever hear from Maci, Farrah and Cate again?

Teen Mom star Amber Portwood is not entirely off the hook, but it looks like she will NOT be headed to jail after failing to take a required drug test this week.

Law enforcement sources say the judge ordered Amber to submit to an extra 30 days of DAILY drug testing for failing to procure a urine sample on Monday.

A non-test is an automatic "fail" in the eyes of the court, and she could have been put in jail for it on the spot, but the judge cut her a very slight break.

She's treading on very thin ice, however. Amber didn't just botch a drug test, she missed an AA meeting recently - another mandatory activity for her.

According to the terms of her release, she must comply with all of these terms or face up to five years in the big house. She's just one slip-up away.

As punishment, Amber is also required to re-read the drug court handbook and write a 500-word report on her responsibilities as a drug court participant.

Seriously. She has to write a book report. Gotta love it.

Amber Portwood: Will she end up back in jail?

Looks like Amber Portwood has screwed up again. Possibly big time.

The troubled Teen Mom train wreck failed to take a required drug test, and as a result, could face the five-year prison sentence she just narrowly dodged.

Portwood's December drug arrest had her staring down a lengthy stint in the big house, but a judge promised to dismiss the entire case ... with a big "if."

IF she completes a drug program ... a stipulation that includes daily drug testing. Which she apparently couldn't even give a sample for. Terrific work!

Grade A Screw-Up

Amber had been doing fairly well since being released from jail and moving in with her grandmother, but on Monday, she torpedoed all her short-lived progress.

By failing to provide a urine sample during a routine drug test while she serves time on home detention, she may be in for it at her court check-up today.

Amber allegedly failed to provide a sample because she simply couldn't go at the time, but so it goes. No sample = failed test. No exceptions or excuses.

She'll have to answer for the failed test one way or another before a judge today, and we'll have to see if the judge feels it warrants a probation violation.

If so, she could be off to prison for a LONG time. Stay tuned.

Will Amber Portwood end up back in jail?

Troubled star Amber Portwood will not be present as the cast members of Teen Mom and Teen Mom 2 head to NYC this weekend to participate in a reunion special.

Amber's mom, Tonya, tells E! that the judge overseeing her daughter's probation denied permission for her to leave Anderson, Ind., to participate in the event.

"He thinks it will interfere with her program," says Tonya.

Troubled Amber Portwood

Probably right. But despite the setback, Amber isn't sweating it too hard. It wasn't long ago before it looked like her filming days were done altogether.

Now that she's living at her grandma's, the show may go on ... ankle monitor style, but still. "I'm happy. Just stressed, but I'm happy," says Portwood.

Last week, she was released from the Madison County correctional facility where she had been since December after being busted for drug possession.

Teen Mom star Amber Portwood just got out of jail free ... mostly.

On Friday, the MTV reality train wreck was released from jail, but instead of heading to a halfway house after leaving the Madison County (Ind.) correctional facility, she's already settling in at another house ... her maternal grandmother's.

"Amber is all taken care of [and] getting settled in," says her mom, Tonya.

Last week, after the halfway house denied Amber, her mom told us that she was "happy and relieved that she [wouldn't] have to live in a halfway house."

"Now she will get to spend more time with her daughter, which is what this was all about anyway," Tonya said. A bonus of the new living arrangement?

Filming of Teen Mom is still a go!

Though she is still required to attend rehab at Sister 2 Sister Ministries, in Anderson, Ind., production can proceed with her living at grandma's place.

Filming was banned at Sister 2 Sister, where Amber Portwood was set to live upon her release before the residence wanted no part of it. So it's win-win?
