Coming back? Season 24 of Little People, Big World left the Roloff family at a standstill. While family patriarch Matt Roloff had initially decided to sell 16 acres of the reality TV family’s farm, he ultimately decided to remove the listing and convert the home into a rental property instead. While the farm is staying in the family — the drama over the decision to sell still lingers, setting the scene for a dramatic season 25. 

Will There Be a ‘Little People, Big World’ Season 25?

TLC confirmed LPBW would return for season 25 in December 2023, however, Matt seemingly spilled the tea on the future of the show back in October. 

The patriarch told fans during the Roloff Farms’ pumpkin season festivities that the series finished filming “back in August,” an eyewitness told The Sun. Matt added that he was usually the last to know about the release date and it was set to document Zach’s ongoing recovery from his February brain surgery and “other health issues that come with dwarfish.’

Matt previously hinted that the famous family was filming in a February 23, 2023, Instagram post.

“Just started pouring down snow here at Roloff Farms,” the TLC personality captioned a carousel of snaps of the Oregon property, with the last photo including the appearance of a film crew. “Changing all the setups to interior work.” 

In the comment section, viewers questioned if this meant another season of LPBW was headed to TLC. 

“Amy said on her LIVE yesterday that they are filming,” one fan seemingly reported.

The mom of four seemingly confirmed in April 2023 that the family was filming after sharing a photo with cameras pointed toward her in her living room.

“And this is where Daisy Mae lays while Chris and I do an interview,” she captioned the adorable picture of her pup.

When Will ‘Little People, Big World’ Season 25 Premiere?

Little People, Big World premieres February 20, 2024, at 9 p.m. ET on TLC.

“After an unexpected proposal, Matt and Caryn excitedly look to the future while building their dream home on the farm, but the constant strain on the family makes them wonder what that future will look like,” the official logline stated according to Variety. “While Amy continues to enjoy married life with Chris, she remains unsettled by the family strife. To help bring the family together and support a cause near and dear to her, she decides to throw a fundraiser and enlists Chris, Matt, and Caryn’s help. But it doesn’t take long before the stress rises to the surface.”

As for Zach and Tori, the pair are busy raising their three kids before everything is “turned upside down when Zach is rushed to the hospital for emergency surgery.”

What Happened to ‘Little People, Big World’ Star Zach Roloff?

On February 7, 2023, Tori Roloff revealed husband Zach Roloff was rushed to the hospital to undergo emergency shunt surgery

“We discovered Zach’s shunt is in need of repair and will have surgery in the morning,” the TLC personality explained in a text post. “They say it’s routine surgery but it’s far from my routine and Zach and I are nervous.”

The John Hopkins Medicine website explains that a shunt is a hollow tube that is surgically placed in the brain. The tube helps drain cerebrospinal fluid and redirects it to another part of the body where it can be reabsorbed.

Tori did not reveal what exactly was wrong with the former soccer player, though the website explained that shunt procedures tend to address pressure on the brain that is caused by hydrocephalus. The surgery often relieves symptoms that include gait difficulty and lack of bladder control.

Shortly after the surgery, the mother of three updated fans on Zach’s recovery. “It’s been a scary 72 hours, but he is doing well and recovering!!” she wrote via her Instagram Stories on February 9. “Thank you so much to everyone for the prayers that you have covered us in. We feel them!” After two days in the hospital, Zach went home to recover from the brain surgery with his family.

Who Is Returning For Season 25 of ‘Little People, Big World’?

While Matt and Amy are filming again for the latest chapter, Zach — the pair’s last remaining child to star in the long-running series — and Tori seemingly teased their plans to leave.

“I think our time is definitely coming to a close, but we’re trying to enjoy it while it’s here!” Tori told fans via a December 2022 Q&A with fans. Tori went on to slam “misconceptions” about the TLC series, including her frustration with viewers only seeing edited versions of her family.

Meanwhile, Matt’s fiancée Caryn Chandlers son, Connor, joined the conversation in September 2023, speculating that he also believed the couple was ready to say goodbye to the show.

“I did hear through the grapevine that they do not want to be on another season if the show were to continue and they just want to do their own thing,” he told The Sun in September 2023. “I do believe no matter whether there’s a continuance or not, Zach and Tori probably will not be seen on the next season.”

However, Zach and Tori will be cast members on season 25.
