For several weeks now, we've been hearing reports that the Duggar family's reality show, Counting On, had been canceled amidst declining ratings and growing controversy.
The rumor was the result of little more than silence from both the Duggars and TLC with regard to a renewal of the long-running series, but that was enough to send some fans into a state of premature mourning.
After all, if the show had been canceled, it wouldn't come as too much of a shock.
Criticism of the Duggars has grown louder in recent months thanks to transphobic comments made by Derick Dillard during a series of bizarre social media tirades.
But the family has survived countless scandals in the past, and it looks as though the Duggars will successfully weather this latest storm, as well.
According to a new post from the ever-popular Duggar news Facebook page Life Is Not All Pickles and Hairspray, Joy-Anna and Jana Duggar were recently spotted filming scenes at an Arkansas beauty salon.
The page even posted photo evidence to prove that the girls are currently filming:
Pickles and Hairspray also shared an extensive list of things that we can expect to see on the show this season, along with a few things we most certainly will not see.
That list includes, of course, Josh Duggar and Derick Dillard (the former is still in exile, the latter has either been fired by TLC or quit the show of his own volition, depending on whom you believe).
Apparently, we also won't see any of the Duggar girls wearing pants, even though several of Jim Bob and Michelle's daughters have been favoring a more modern sartorial style in recent months.
The page sardonically informs fans that they also won't be seeing, "The real religious views of the Duggars even though they consider the show their Christian ministry."
Burn. Needless to say, Pickles isn't exactly Jim Bob's favorite Facebook page.
But hey, Duggar fans are likely just ecstatic that they'll soon be treated to another season of fundamentalist hijinks.
There's been no official word regarding a premiere date as of yet, but TLC sources have indicated that the show will return in spring of 2018.
Watch Counting On online to get caught up in time for what should be a gloriously Derick-less season.
