Is ‘OutDaughtered’ Canceled or Renewed? Here’s When the Busby Quints Return to TV

Who knew potty training could be so entertaining? TV viewers have been entranced by the story Adam and Danielle Busby and their six daughters — including a set of quintuplets — since their show OutDaughtered premiered on TLC in 2016. And for those who are loving watching the family’s girls grow up, the network has some good news. OutDaughtered has been renewed for a sixth season.

The new season of ‘OutDaughtered’ premieres October 1 

Get ready for the return of the Busby quints. Though season 5 of the show just ended in July, the series will soon be back on TV. Season 6 of OutDaughtered will premiere on Tuesday, October 1 at 8/7c on TLC.

In the new season, the Busbys are dealing with “a storm of ‘four-nadoes’” as their five younger daughters — Hazel Grace, Parker Kate, Olivia Marie, Riley Paige and Ava Lane — all celebrate their fourth birthday in the two-hour season premiere. The family will also mark big sister Blayke’s eighth birthday, cope with an uncertain housing situation, and tackle nighttime potty training. Oh, and “fun dad” Adam brings home a new puppy — which looks like it doesn’t go over so well with Danielle.

Adam and Danielle must also balance responsibilities at work and to their family. Adam’s work trips to Dallas are causing tension, while Danielle is hard at work trying to start her own business. The couple also has to make a tough decision regarding their daughters’ education.

The Busbys had to decide whether to let Riley skip ahead in school

With the quints getting older, the Busbys are faced with a difficult decision when they are given the choice to let Riley start kindergarten before her sisters. Ultimately, Adam and Danielle decided to split up the kids and let Riley skip ahead. The choice made sense given their commitment to raising their girls as individuals. 

“As the quints get older, they’re becoming individuals with their own struggles, likes, dislikes, and opinions,” Danielle told People. “In the instance of letting Riley move up before her sisters, that was based strictly on her.”  

“Riley’s above and beyond with her intelligence,” the mom of six added. “Knowing where she’s at right now, this was our decision based on her. Of course we looked at the family and how this change affects everyone else.”

On social media, some people had questions about the Busbys decision to let one quint start school before the rest. “So Riley is always gonna be a grade above the other girls?” asked one fan. “Wow Riley is going to kindergarten! Wondering how hard this decision was?” another wrote. 

Some were worried about separating the girls. “Riley is in kindergarten! That’s awesome🙌 but also sad because that means the quints are split up,” wrote one person. 

Many supported the family’s decision to focus on each girl’s individual needs. “I love that y’all let Riley lead her own path!!” one approving fan wrote.
