We have heard so many rumors over the past year or so about whether or not 16 & Pregnant is coming back and we weren’t so sure what to believe, frankly.

But here’s one thing we can confirm — MTV is currently casting for a seventh season of the hit show, so the franchise that made Maci Bookout and Jenelle Evans household names isn’t dead after all!

 

The docu-series, which chronicles the lives of highschool girls dealing with unplanned pregnancies, hasn’t premiered a new episode since Season 5 aired in 2014.

In late 2016, we then heard producers had no plans to resurrect 16&P, and instead wanted to put their focus into new seasons of the wildly successful Teen Mom OG and Teen Mom 2.

There were also rumblings the network was thinking of launching a new spin-off, tentatively titled Teen Mom 4, that would skip over the teen years entirely, and instead feature moms in their early 20’s who have kids in the 2-5 age range.

However, a new notice proves casting is currently underway for 16 & Pregnant Season 7.

According to the official flier, producers are looking for young women ”from varying backgrounds who are facing an unplanned pregnancy” and want to share their journeys with the world.

“Our goal is to give viewers a look inside the realities of teen pregnancy,” it reads, “from morning sickness and balancing school responsibilities to navigating incredibly difficult decisions and relationships... ultimately to the day of the baby’s arrival and beyond.”

So, want to apply?

But wait — if this is for Season 7, what happened to Season 6?

As we said earlier, Season 5 was the last season that made it to air. A source reveals Season 6 has been “taken off the air completely” and will resume with Season 7.

Interesting.

Meanwhile, if you’re too old or not pregnant enough to meet these casting requirements, you can watch the show like the rest of us… Teen Mom 2’s final episode of the season airs Monday, March 27 at 9 p.m. ET.

Teen Mom OG returns Monday, April 17 at 9 p.m. ET on MTV.
