If you caught Monday night's Teen Mom 2 season premiere, you know that the series shows no signs of running out of steam in its ninth go-round.
(Okay, technically this is Season 8B, but the distinction is a purely legal one, intended to stave another round of contract negotiations with the cast.)
The debut episode had a little bit of everything - there was talk of shady hookups, allegations of horrendous parenting, and even the occasional glimpse of happy, functional couple (shoutout to the Houska-DeBoer clan).
But perhaps the biggest surprises came in a trailer that offered fans a preview of what's in store for the remainder of the season.
In fact, the montage contained so many shockers that certain members of the cast were downright stunned with what they saw ...
The trailer for Teen Mom 2 Season 8B shows three of the moms sitting down with producers to discuss problems created by their two other cast members - Jenelle Evans and Briana DeJesus.

Thoughts From Bri
In a now-deleted tweet, DeJesus expressed her shock that her castmates "had a meeting with the executives" about her. For emphasis, she added, "Holy f-cking sh-t lmao."
Briana Drama, Part Bajillion
Of course, a possible confrontation with producers isn't the only drama on the horizon for Briana this season. In fact, it seems she's in for plenty of ups and downs...
