Is ‘Counting On’ Canceled or Renewed? Here’s When New Episodes Might Air
It’s been a hectic few months for the Duggar family, filled with big announcements, new arrivals, and major moves. While fans have been following all the updates on social media, when can we expect to see it all play out on TV? Fear not, Counting On addicts. We finally know when new episodes might arrive.
A year of joy and heartbreak for the Duggar family
So far, 2019 has been a year of both joy and heartbreak for the extended Duggar family.
The Duggar clan is growing in a big way this year. Jessa Duggar gave birth to her third child — and first baby girl — at home in June. Plus, four second-generation Duggar families are currently expecting: Josh and Anna; John-David and Abbie; Joseph and Kendra; and Lauren and Josiah. Plus, cousin Amy is also pregnant. With the exception of John-David and Abbie’s bundle of joy, all the new babies are expected to arrive in the fall.
Several Duggars have also been on the move this year. Jinger Duggar and her husband Jeremy Vuolo pulled up stakes and moved from Laredo, Texas, to Los Angeles, where they seem to be loving their new California lifestyle. Meanwhile, her big sister Jill moved into a brand-new home in Arkansas with her family.
But there’s also been some sadness for the Duggars this year. Grandma Mary, Jim Bob Duggar’s mother, died on June 9 from an accidental drowning after slipping and falling into a swimming pool. Then in early July, Joy-Anna Duggar and her husband Austin Forsyth revealed that she had experienced a miscarriage at 20 weeks. And in February, Lauren and Josiah announced that she had experienced a miscarriage in the fall of 2018.
New ‘Counting On’ episodes will premiere in October
So far, TLC has not made any official announcement about whether Counting On is canceled or renewed for a 10th season. However, People magazine recently dropped a hint about when fans can expect to see new episodes of the popular reality TV show.
In an article announcing John-David and Abbie’s pregnancy, the magazine revealed that new episodes of Counting On should air sometime in October. The last new episode aired in March 2019.
Will Jinger Duggar get her own spinoff show?
In addition to new episodes of Counting On this fall, some fans suspect that one Duggar could be getting her own show.
There have been rumors that Jinger Duggar and her husband Jeremy could star in their own spinoff, which would likely focus on their new life in Los Angeles. Fans definitely seem interested, with one commenting on one of Jinger’s recent Instagram posts: “I wish TLC would give you guys your own show.”
We do know that TLC film crews followed along during their move from Texas to California, but they may have just been documenting their trip for Counting On. However, TLC hasn’t said anything about the couple getting their own show, so for now, this is merely a rumor.
