Say it ain't so! After watching Jeremy Roloff grow up, meet the love of his life Audrey Roloff, get married, and have his first child Ember Roloff, he announced on July 10 that his family is quitting Little People, Big World. While the show will continue with his parents and siblings, he thinks it's time for his little family to move on, and now matriarch Amy Roloff has commented on their departure.
"First, love you three so much. Second, the Lord has called you for a mission and I'm excited to see what he will continue to do in your lives. You're making an impact, that is for sure. Woohoo!" she wrote in the comments section on her son's Instagram page. "Third, I couldn't agree with you more Jeremy. It's time to move on… for all of us to move on in one way or another. LPBW has had an awesome run because of the family and everyone that has watched, supported, encourage[d], and been impacted by the show. Love that. Season 14 is being filmed right now and will air late this season or spring. Fourth… I couldn't be more proud of you and Audrey. Keep fighting the good fight."

This is an announcement concerning Jeremy Roloff and his family specifically: After 14 years, over 300 episodes, and 17 seasons, the time has come. A year ago I made the decision that this season would be our last. It has been an amazing run, and I can’t say thank you enough to all of you who have watched and supported us along the ride. We have the most loyal fans on TV and we appreciate every one of you. You are what made doing this so fun.🙏🏼 We will still be supporting the family as they carry the #LPBW torch onward. This is a decision concerning Audrey and me specifically – the show must go on! That being said, we’re not disappearing. We have a lot of exciting stuff in the works and are eager to continue the work that the Lord has called us to! Again, we thank you, and always enjoy when we get a chance to meet one of you. Whether it be in the airport, on the street, at pumpkin season or at one of our upcoming Beating50percent events! THANK YOU for all the love and support. Your messages, comments, gifts, and mail are noticed and appreciated. ❤️You guys are the best. Thank you for respecting our decision. I also want to give a big thank you to the team at TLC. Thanks for putting up with us;) You’ve provided us with a grand opportunity and for that we are forever grateful. *you can watch the video on my IGTV. Under the mercy, -Jeremy
In their initial clip shared to Facebook, Jeremy revealed, "After 14 years, over 300 episodes, and 17 seasons, the time has come. A year ago I made the decision that this season would be our last.

Plus, they will be carrying on their Beating50Percent mission, and still plan to hold events for that.
Fans were crushed by the news, but know that Auj and Jer will keep us updated about their lives on social media. Many rushed to the comments of Audrey's Instagram to wish them luck. "Sad to hear about you guys' departure from the show, but I’m looking forward to what’s in store for you all!" said one. Another agreed, writing, "Definitely going to miss you on the show!" with a third saying, "Awwww!! I’m crying! Boo." We wish them the best, and can't wait to see what's next!
