Dad Deon Derrico has been hinting that his family’s show would be returning for a second season, telling fans on Instagram to “stay tuned” for news about future episodes. 

Now, TLC has announced a premiere date for Doubling Down With the Derricos Season 2. New episodes will begin airing Tuesday, June 1 at 10 p.m. on TLC.

“This is going to be a ride, buckle up!” Deon told his followers on social media

The Derrico family gets some upsetting news 

In a just-released teaser for the new season of Doubling Down With the Derricos, the family of 16 is dealing with life’s many ups and downs. Karen and Deon make the most of a quarantined Halloween by staging a disco-themed dance party and also discover an interactive way to teach their kids about Black history. Plus, overprotective dad Deon gets nervous when oldest daughter Darien starts talking about dating, while Karen wonders if her husband might have obsessive-compulsive disorder. 

The Derricos also get some upsetting news when they learn their son Diez requires surgery on his skull due to a condition called sagittal craniosynostosis. 

“Out of all the things I’ve ever fought in my life, this has to be the hardest,” a tearful Deon says in the teaser.

On top of everything else the family is dealing with, Karen Derrico suspects she might be pregnant again. 

“According to this, I’m a week late,” she says in the video. Her husband urges her to take a pregnancy test. 

But another baby (or babies) for the Derricos isn’t welcome news — at least according to one member of the family. Deon’s mom GG things her son and daughter-in-law have their hands full with the children they already have. “When is the line drawn, for real?” she asks her son.

“Not another baby,” GG says later. “It’s overwhelming with the ones that are here.”
