Fans of TLC's beloved show The Little Couple all want to know one thing — will the new season air in 2017?
Details about whether the show would return or not seemed murky, to say the least, especially because stars Jen Arnold and Bill Klein are currently involved in a legal battle with TLC's parent company Discovery Communications over the right to the series. But Bill recently shared a super cryptic message on Twitter that makes it seem like they've worked everything out!
"140 characters isn't enough to get you all the information you need to know about the exciting things happening... but it's very cool stuff!" the dad-of-two tweeted last week.

Even though he didn't reveal all of the details, many fans are taking his message as a sign that the "exciting things" that are going to be happening have to do with The Little Couple.
"I hope that means you're coming back on TV somewhere! Missing you all so very much!" one fan wrote, while another fan speculated that it could pertain to another adoption!
"Yes, bring on another season...or is it a further expansion to your Klein clan?" the fan wrote.
Last month, Jen and Bill intervened in a lawsuit between production company LMNO and Discovery Communications because they claimed that they are victims in the back-and-forth between the media giants, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Since the LMNO brought the case against Discovery last June, production on The Little Couple has been stalled.
But Jen and Bill are stepping in to claim their ownership of the series, and they're filing for breach of contract, fraud, unfair competition, and accounting — among other claims.
"Intervenors have now learned that LMNO engaged in systematic fraud against them and Discovery by grossly inflating purported expenses, falsifying accounting documents, and falsely contending that no contingent compensation was due to Intervenors," the couple's attorneys, Jennifer McGrath and Neville Johnson, revealed in a statement.
