Duggar fans, we hope you are jumping for “Joy” — pun, of course, intended! With radio silence from both the Duggar family and TLC (until now, at least), fans feared the worst when it comes to show’s future, suspecting that the 19 Kids and Counting spin-off has been cancelled amid ongoing (let’s be honest — constant) drama surrounding the family.
But worry not, Duggar fans! Over the weekend, popular Duggar “fan” (using that term loosely) account Duggar Family News: Life Is Not All Pickles and Hairspray gave fans reason to be optimistic about the future of the family’s reality show after it snagged a picture of pregnant Joy Duggar and her sister Jana getting pedicures surrounded by their always-present film crew, meaning a new season of Counting On is coming
soon eventually! TLC later confirmed that the show will be back in Spring 2018.
We’re sure fans are pretty psyched to see that the Duggars will be returning to the small screens — as there’s plenty to celebrate for the family-of-many. Not only is Joy pregnant with her first child — due sometime early next year — but also, it was announced earlier today that Kendra and Joe Duggar are also going to be first-time parents come 2018!
With the two little ones on the way, that means the Duggar grandparents — Jim Bob and Michelle — will soon be grandparents to 11 little ones — and we suspect it’ll only be a matter of time until they have more grandkids than kids (right now the number to beat being, of course, 19...)! In addition to Joy’s and Joe’s little babies, they are also proud grandparents to nine little “Grand-Duggars” — aka Josh’s five kids Mackynzie, Meredith, Michael, Marcus, and Mason, Jill’s sons Israel and Samuel, and Jessa’s boys Spurgeon and Henry.
We know fans can’t wait to watch this family continue to grow — and we’re so glad they’ll be able to watch from the comfort of their couches! Is it Spring 2018 yet?!
