“I’m thankful I can bring a new element to unscripted and scripted TV soon, as a screenwriter, director, and producer,” she told them. “I’m blessed for my 10 years and can’t wait to make TV that is original, better made, better talent and better executives.”
So although we’ve yet to see any original television from Farrah, rumors of Teen Mom going of the air have only gotten worse. Teen Mom OG didn’t air when it normally would, and now Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant may not get their reunion!
The Instagram account Teen Mom Mama Drama posted a screenshot of a source discussing the likelihood of the show going off the air.
In the screenshot, a message from someone named Steph Polo commented on the lack of reunion. “There’s not going to be your [sic] reunion or they would have filmed it about a month ago,” she wrote. “They consider that one we have for Teen Mom 2 was our reunion but if you don’t actually live watch the night of the episode of the season finale then there will be enough ratings.”
She didn’t give confirmation of where she got her information from, but ultimately is suggesting that the show will go off the air because ratings don’t account for people who watch the show after the air date.
A reddit thread explores the possibility of Young and Pregnant being cancelled altogether.
“Not surprising. There are a huge amount of people in this sub alone who keep watching the older girls, while saying they have no interest in pregnant teenagers anymore because they didn’t grow up with them,” one user wrote. “I’m sure many viewers feel the same way.”
Another user disagreed completely. “It makes literally no sense to me for them to cancel a show that is actually entertaining and actually shows the struggles of young motherhood, but keep the boring ass show that’s been on for 10 years about 30 year old entitled rich girls??? Huh???”
“They ended the episode saying Y&P was over but I took that to mean that the season is over not that they have made the decision to cancel the show and this is their announcement,” a third user commented. “It is lazy that there is no reunion but we get stuck with 3 weeks of the boring OG & TM2 casts. I personally would enjoy 3 weeks devoted just to the Beaver’s! [sic]”
Would you be sad to see Young and Pregnant go?
