TLC Considering Duggar Spin-Off Focusing on Jill and Jessa — Report
We still haven’t forgotten the horrible things we recently learned about Josh Duggar’s past, but it seems TLC sure has. Having taken one step forward by pulling19 Kids and Counting from its schedule, the network may be taking taking two steps backward as People reports that there could be a Duggar spin-off in the works.
People suggests that the title for the new show could be 2 Brides and Their Grooms because the a source close to the family says the potential project might be focused on couples Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard as well as Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald.
While the network has not yet addressed the rumors of a Duggar spin-off series, it does line up with today’s earlier report which said Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar were handling things by “focusing on their faith — and each other” throughout the backlash.
“The show had begun to focus more and more on the next generation of Duggars, anyway — mainly Jill and Jessa and their marriages and babies,” the sources says. “That’s when the show got its highest ratings.”
We’re still waiting to see what happens with 19 Kids and Counting because, if it’s anything like how TLC handled the Here Comes Honey Boo Boo mess, it could be dunzo. That being said, Mama June hasn’t been too happy that the network is clinging to the Duggars and pulled the plug on her family’s show sooner and with far less damning evidence.
