Could the fifth season of Teen Mom 2 be its last? A RadarOnline.com report on March 14 indicates that the popular MTV series starring Jenelle Evans, Kailyn Lowry, Leah Messer, and Chelsea Houska may be making its final bow this year.
A production insider tells the website that MTV and all parties involved with the series “want to end Teen Mom 2 with high ratings.” The source further asserts that the plan is to extend Season 5's with additional episodes (and countless specials, we’re sure).
“Though it is not Season 6, per se, it’s pretty much another season,” another source reveals. “The girls already filmed a reunion for ‘Season 5’ but this season is technically ‘Season 5b.’”
So far, neither the network nor any of the stars of the show have confirmed that there’s an end in sight for the series. An MTV spokesperson tells Wetpaint Entertainment, “No decisions have been made regarding additional season of Teen Mom 2.”
A lot has happened over the show’s three-year run: three marriages, two births, several breakups, one abortion, and too many arrests to count. For better or worse, we've grown attached to these four girls, and we’re not so sure we’re ready to say goodbye.
What do you think: Is it the right time to wrap things up on Teen Mom 2, or does this feel a little premature?
