Is it time to say goodbye?!
Die hard Teen Mom fans might not want to think about it, but the end of the franchise is inevitable. After a while, the girls will settle down, and between their lives mellowing out and a need for more privacy, there just won’t be a need for the show anymore. Not to mention that they haven’t been “teens” for quite some time now. Maybe MTV will start a show with new girls, but the days of Farrah, Jenelle, Kailyn, and all of the original stars will be over someday. (Don’t cry too hard!)
Is this day coming sooner rather than later? From the looks of things, that might be the case. Fans have noticed how many spin-offs MTV has created in recent months, and with Amber, Maci, Chelsea, and Jenelle talking spinoffs, it looks like they might be securing their future on TV with the end of Teen Mom looming overhead.
Spinoffs for Everyone!
From Being Simon to Being Vee to Being Deb, MTV has been airing numerous spin-offs and specials for Teen Mom recently — but are they are just backdoor pilots for a new section of the TM-verse?
Many fans think yes. The amount of spin-offs being discussed has fans concerned that the days of Teen Mom as we know it are numbered. If members of the main cast begin to leave the show, will MTV have enough girls left for Teen Mom OG or 2 to stay on the air?
Jenelle Evans recently confirmed that she would be giving all of her exes a platform to share their sides of the story in the upcoming special The Ex Files. Javi Marroquin is also currently filming a Being Javi special about his own life that will air soon.
However, some fans wanted something more specific and long term. One fan tweeted Maci and Chelsea, writing, “I wish they’d make a version of Teen Mom that was just Chelsea Houska [DeBoer] and Maci Bookout [McKinney] because they’re both so perfect.” This is a sentiment many members of the fanbase share, considering Maci and Chelsea have some of the most stable lives of the entire cast.
Fans might have to wait forever for this idea, though, since the one thing Teen Mom ratings thrive on is the drama. Since Chelsea and Maci’s lives are so stable, they tend to also be pretty drama free! Maci actually spoke out about this rumor, tweeting, “DO NOT believe everything u read. Well, actually anything unless it’s coming from me. #fakestories #spinoff #parenting #life.”
Apparently, there’s another show that might already be in the works. Ever since Amber Portwood confirmed that she is pregnant, , she’s been the topic of numerous headlines and rumors. So is it enough for her to get her own show?
According to a source close to Amber, she’s ready for her new baby to make its debut on camera. “Amber is very interested in having cameras following her pregnancy journey and is very eager to have the entire birth filmed as well,” they told Hollywood Life.
The source even claimed that Amber was going to do anything in her power to lock down a new series only about her, Andrew, and their baby. “She is talking to her people about the possibility of making it happen,” they said.
It’ll be a wait before any of this is confirmed, but in the meantime, Amber seems content to show off her baby bump and her new bae.
