We have some good news, Little People, Big World fans:
You may not need to say goodbye to Jeremy and Audrey Roloff after all.
Back in July, of course, the beloved twosome stunned fans of this TLC series by announcing they would not be returning for Season 14.
Jeremy said in his statement that this decision had actually been reached about a year earlier, telling followers on Instagram:
It has been an amazing run, and I can’t say thank you enough to all of you who have watched and supported us along the ride. We have the most loyal fans on TV and we appreciate every one of you.
You are what made doing this so fun.
We will still be supporting the family as they carry the #LPBW torch onward. This is a decision concerning Audrey and me specifically - the show must go on.
And Matt has now confirmed as much: the show WILL be going on.
The patriarch tells Soap Dirt that filming for Season 14 is underway, and that viewers likely have actually NOT seen the last of Jeremy and Audrey.
Cameras were on hand for Matt's recent birthday party, for example, and these two were in attendance, so... "that’s a little tip for you there," Matt said.
He explained that Jeremy and Audrey are not on the "filming schedule," but they are very much around at times and aren't about to hide from TLC.
"They’ll participate in the family events," he says simply.
That's nice to know, isn't it?
Roloff admitted in this same interview that mentioned that his son and daughter-in-law dropping out of the show was quite a “twist to the whole thing, but TLC decided to go forward.
And why not, he continues?
"They’ve got Zach and Tori, and Amy and myself" as cast members, even noting "Caryn and Chris" in a reference to his girlfriend, Caryn Chandler, and Amy Roloff's boyfriend, Chris Marek (below).
It sounds as if both will have significant roles on Season 14.
As for when new episodes may air?
Matt doesn't know.
He says he heard the spring at one point, but it's possible he and his loved ones may be back on our small screens prior to that.
Either way, they remain a huge part of our lives, frequently sharing photos and messages on social media.
For example, did you see how the Roloff celebrated the start of pumpking season at their farm this week?
