Jill Duggar, Derick Dillard to Star in 19 Kids & Counting Spinoff?

by at .

Are the Duggars taking over TV, one TLC series at a time, slowly building a veritable, pious empire, like a wholesome, Arkansas version of the Kardashians?

The newly married, pregnant Jill Duggar and husband Derick Dillard are being eyed to star in a 19 Kids and Counting spinoff, at least according to Internet reports.

Could we even handle two Duggar shows at the same time?! How couldn't we?!

The Duggars have been slowly growing their fan base as well as their family. 19 Kids and Counting was formerly 18 and 17 Kids and Counting, of course.

With the modest exception of Amy Duggar-driven specials, rumors involving a new show starring one of the 19 would be the first of their kind, however.

Jill Duggar would certainly seem to be a prime candidate for such a spinoff.

Given how much air time her courtship, engagement, and wedding received on the most recent season of 19 Kids, it's not hard to see TLC expressing interest.

With Jill and Derick Dillard now expecting their first child - the first of what will likely be many, as they're in their early 20s - the torch is ready to be passed.

Beyond sharing her life on TV, she's also strongly connected to fans online, sharing photos of her wedding, baby bump and date nights at Chick-fil-A.

These two love sharing their love almost as much as loving each other!

She's also less of a lightning rod than Jessa Duggar, who has stoked plenty of controversy since courting now-husband Ben Seewald (they also wed in 2014).

While Jill and Derick no doubt share the family's core political and religious beliefs, the otherwise social media savvy duo is more private in that regard.

On the flip side, it might be too bland, but we doubt the Duggars' fan base would be deterred by the fact that the Dillards set such a positive example.

With a higher profile than, say, fan favorite Jana Duggar, yet reluctant to wade into pot-stirring waters, the newlyweds present a low-risk, high reward option.

Jill and Derick would likely jump at the chance, too.

We've watched nearly each and every moment shared by this young family already. It would be easy to see that platform expanded into their own show.

Would you watch a Jill and Derick spinoff?
