It’s been a little while since we had the Thompson family in our homes, but never fret, as the new year is bringing us a fresh helpin’ of Mama June’s sketti, Alana’s sass, and all of that good, redneck family togetherness. The fourth season of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo premieres on on January 16, 2014, and though we still have a little under a month to kill beforehand, TLC has gifted us with a sneak peek at what’s in store.

It looks like Sugar Bear and Mama June are settling into domestic bliss nicely, after finally making their relationship official last spring. No honeymoon phase here, people. Sugar Bear is overwhelmed by all of the estrogen, so he goes and gets himself a man camper, or a “manper” as he so cleverly dubs it. And Mama June is none too pleased about this imposing new real estate in her front yard.

“I wear the stretch pants in the relationship,” she quips in the video, after telling off her new husband. Oh, Mama June. Never change!

Meanwhile, apparently Pumpkin is looking to start up her beauty career. It’s looking like she’ll need that beauty school education — the electric tape she’s using to remove her siblings’ underarm hair isn’t going to earn her many clients.

We close things out with Alana and Chickadee’s daughter Kaitlyn competing in the Cutest Redneck Competition (this is a real thing?!). Kaitlyn nabs the crown, and, uh oh, Alana is not having it. Didn’t anyone clue the baby in that there’s only one cute redneck allowed!

Here Comes Honey Boo Boo premieres on Thursday, January 16 on TLC at 9 p.m. ET.
