As you may have heard, Jinger Duggar is officially courting Jeremy Vuolo, a former professional soccer player whom she met through her older sister Jessa.
Jessa is probably thrilled that she made the introductions, but not only for the obvious reason that her sister may be headed for the altar.
You see, Jinger's courtship comes with a big bonus for Jessa and the rest of the Duggars, as it may have saved the once-beloved family from the brink of obscurity.
After a season of mediocre ratings and controversy-averse advertisers pulling their support, there was talk that the Duggars' new reality show, Jill & Jessa: Counting On, would be canceled.
A couple weeks ago, TLC began to show indications that it would renew Counting On, but no official announcements were made.
Network execs were reportedly on the fence, and many insiders believe that the timing of Jinger's big announcement was carefully planned.
Now, several media outlets are reporting that TLC has quietly gone ahead with the renewal
"[Jinger and Jeremy’s] courtship will be a big part of the new season of Counting On when it returns to TLC later this summer,” a source close to the situation tells The Ashley's Reality Roundup.
While no premiere date has been announced, the show will likely return to the airwaves much sooner than expected.
The Ashley and several other outlets are reporting that Counting On Season 2 is scheduled to drop sometime this summer.
As with Season 1, there's been very little fanfare for such a high-profile show.
It could be that the network feels that heavy marketing isn't necessary when the Duggars are involved - or it could be a way of staving off controversy for as long as possible.
