If you’ve been praying to your lucky Teen Mom stars for your OG mamas to return to the small screen, it wasn’t in vain. Us Weekly reports Maci Bookout, Catelynn Lowell, and Amber Portwood are all returning for a brand new season airing on MTV in 2015! Oh, and in case you weren’t sure, Farrah Abraham will not be joining in on the fun (talk about awkward!).
So what can you expect in this new season? A lot of change! The last time we got to see these ladies up close and personal was back in 2012 when the last season of Teen Mom aired, and their subsequent specials — Being Maci, Being Catelynn, and Being Amber — in the years that followed.
It’s safe to say that these girls have definitely done their fair share of growing up. For one, Maci’s got a new boyfriend, Taylor McKinney, who just moved from Texas to be with her in Chattanooga. And Bentley? He’s 5 years old now (can you believe it?) and just started kindergarten!
“My family and I are in such a new and interesting place in our lives,” Maci tells Us. “I feel like I have grown up so much since the last time that I filmed anything for TV, so it will be very interesting to show viewers how our lives have evolved.”
As for Catelynn and her longtime love, Tyler Baltierra, they’re expecting their second child, and they’re also planning their wedding (praise the Teen Mom gods!).
“I feel like documenting this pregnancy is totally different, because now it’s our time to be parents,” Cate says. “Tyler and I have always done the show to help people. Now people can see what it will be like to juggle the responsibilities of taking care of our new baby while navigating our relationship with Carly (their first child) and her adoptive parents.”
Lastly, Amber is readjusting to life after serving 17 months in prison, and she’s doing it sober while writing a tell-all, Never Too Late. “I’ve changed so much that my focus and my goals are different than before,” says Amber, who also reveals that not only is she graduating from school this December, but she’s got a new gig!
“I started a new job just a few weeks ago,” she adds. “I’m a social media marketing specialist for a company, and I absolutely love it.” As for daughter Leah, Amber is spending as much time with her as possible, despite her baby daddy, Gary Shirley, having full custody. “She just started kindergarten,” Amber says, “and she’s still beautiful and smart.”
We’ve spent what feels like centuries covering Teen Mom’s reported return, and now we’re finally counting down the days until our calendars read 2015!
