A world without Teen Mom is a very dark place indeed (trust us, there's such a thing as too many comfort cheese puffs), but good news: MTV's OG ladies with babies are filming!

Yep, Amber Portwood, Catelynn Lowell, and Maci Bookout are reportedly hitting the small screen with an all-new season of Teen Mom, and we couldn't be more excited. Actually, we'd be slightly more excited if Farrah Abraham had also been invited back into the fold, but we'll take what we can get.

While MTV hasn't confirmed that Teen Mom's been given the greenlight for Season 5, it's pretty hard to deny. At this point, most of the cast have been spotted filming, and this week a photo of a cameraman was posted to the internets.

Behold, an adorable snapshot of Gary Shirley and Amber Portwood's daughter attending Kindergarten, which Gary captioned, "First day of school!"


We're thrilled to see Leah embark on this exciting journey, but let's be real — all our attention is focused on that dude in the background wearing dad jeans and holding a camera.

The news that Gary and Amber appear to be filming everyone's favorite reality show is exciting, though the fact that they're still hard at work capturing footage probably means Teen Mom won't be on air for at least a few months.

Are you excited about the three musketeers returning to television? Sound off below!
