Is TLC’s ‘The Little Couple’ Coming Back for Season 15? Jen Arnold Gives Update
TLC’s The Little Couple has had fans loving stars Bill Klein and his wife, Dr. Jennifer Arnold, since the show’s inception in 2009. The reality show follows the couple, who both have a rare form of dwarfism, as they navigate their personal and professional lives. And viewers are hungry for more episodes!
Bill and Jennifer share son Will and daughter Zoey. The pair adopted Will from Hohhot, China, in March 2013. His adoption was featured in season 5. They subsequently adopted Zoey from India in October of that year.
Bill and Jen shot to fame with their reality series, which helped bring more awareness to their conditions. Bill stands at 4 feet and has a rare variation of a skeletal dysplasia called Spondyloepiphyseal Dysplasia. Jen’s height stands at 3 foot 2 and has a rare type of dwarfism called Spondyloepiphyseal Dysplasia Type Strudwick.
Jennifer and Bill also hold some pretty impressive careers. Jen is a neonatologist while her husband is a medical supplies and telemarketing businessman. Their combined net worth of an estimated $3.5 million is also pretty cool!
While the series has not aired any new seasons as of May 2022, the couple still are pretty active on social media and they love to keep their fans updated on their lives.
On June 20, 2021, Jen shared a cute video of her kids and their cousins splashing around during a fun pool day. Just two days earlier, Jen and Zoey soaked up some sun at the beach together. In May, Jen shared an adorable throwback snap of Will’s Star Wars-themed 7th birthday bash.
The show has had 14 seasons so far, so when are new episodes going to be hitting viewers’ TV screens?
Is The Little Couple Getting Canceled or Renewed?
While the show has yet to be officially renewed, the last time the series aired new episodes was in September 2019. However, in August 2022, Jen and Zoey, who recently moved into their 2. talked about the possibility of returning to the show, but they both had very different takes on the matter.
“We’ll go back on The Little Couple, and don’t believe mom. If I’m a grownup, I’ll promise I’ll be back. … I promise,” Zoey said.
The mom of two said, “Zoey wants to be back on The Little Couple, but right now—,” before Zoey cut in, interrupting, “No, we will, we will.”
“No, we hope so,” the neonatologist said, which is similar to what the former TLC star has said about the prospects of the series coming back.
In May, Jen exclusively told In Touch that she’s “guessing” the show won’t come back for another season. “The network has sort of said that they’re good for now. Our contracts were up at the beginning of the pandemic, and we talked about going back and forth about starting again,” she said.

After insisting the show’s crew is like “family” to her, Jen said she, Bill and their kids will be fine whether or not the show comes back. “We’re kind of chugging along, enjoying our work and, and I think we’re exploring other things.
