Back in June, MTV gave the green light for more episodes of Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant.
Now, the reality series is just weeks away from returning for Season 1b — and we already have a promo video.
Pregnancy was only the prologue for these teens. Their struggles have only bgun.
“Last season, five moms-to-be literally mommed up,” the narrator says, making a slightly awkward play on words.
Like we mentioned, the new episodes are just weeks away.
The voiceover continues: “Now, on Monday, October 15, Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant is back.”
“The babies have arrived,” the voice declares.
Then we get a tease of the challenges to come.
“But,” the voiceover asks. “How did these moms handle what comes next?”
Obviously, some of these young mothers will handle things better than others.
That’s how life works — and that’s what draws viewers to the show.
The voiceover repeats: “Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant returns with all new episodes on Monday, October 15 on MTV.”
They really don’t want people to miss the premiere date, folks.
The returning stars are Lexi Tatman, Ashley Jones, Jade Cline, Kayla Sessler, and Brianna Jaramillo.
Obviously, since they’re moms now, we’ll also see their babies again: Tobias, Holly, Kloie, Izaiah, and Braeson.
Viewers expect to see a number of things this season, as Starcasm predicts.
For one thing, Kayla finally breaking up with Stephan.
Will Jade and Sean confirm that they’re back together, as rumor suggests, or will viewers instead see confirmation that they’re over?
Then there’s Lexi and Kyler trying their best to make this work and of course Brianna gettled settled in Oregon.
And then there’s Ashley, easily one of the most memorable and controversial figures we’ve seen on Teen Mom.
Remember that video of her slapping herself beofre accusing Bar of being violent towards her?
Her encounters with Bar’s mother, Shen, eventually drove Shen to quit the series … again.
Ashley joined the ever-growing ranks of reality stars who have feuded with Briana DeJesus even though they’re not even on the same show (and yes, it was over Javi Marroquin).
She also declared on Twitter that people should do their own research into whether the Earth is flat — because she believes that the government and textbooks have warped people’s minds.
Ashley tried to roast people, saying that they thought she was a “dumb b–ch” for her statement. But … nobody’s disputing her self-characterization, there.
Speaking of Ashley, Bar’s life has only been somewhat less dramatic.
He got arrested again. Then there’s the appeal for his brother Troy’s murder conviction. Bar’s foster sister was shot.
On a lighter (and, joking aside, considerably less upsetting) note, Bar released his new rap song. We do not know if, uh, that will be featured on Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant.
But we’ll all find out together in less than three weeks.
When the Teen Mom franchise first premiered on MTV, it focused on the relatable struggles of far-flung, mostly small-town young women as they faced the challenges of new motherhood.
These days, the show has taken on a very different tone, due in large part to how famous its stars have become.
Gone are the days when the OG moms and their successors struggled with finances and career frustrations.
As the ladies of Teen Mom became wealthy and well-known their financial and family issues gave way to a different sort of conflict as the stars began to publicly lock horns with another.
Briana DeJesus and Ashley Jones are the latest moms to clash on social media, and it’s looking like we may be in for the franchise’s most epic feud to date.
Here’s what we know so far about this epic clash of the titans …
