Will the Duggars Return?

The season finale of 19 Kids and Counting aired Tuesday, leaving readers wondering when they can expect to see their favorite super-sized family back on TLC.

Rest assured, the Duggars will be back. (Can we hear a sigh of relief?) According to the network, new episodes will return in 2013.

That's fantastic news!
I can't understand why some people want this show to end. I have followed the Duggars from the very beginning and I love them.
This is one of the few things I watch as I hardly watch any TV at all.
Can't wait until next season!

And Lily & Ellie...thanks for the really nice blog

I was wondering if you knew if their trip to Japan & China would be on T.V.? Also, did the whole family end up going? I know for sure Josh & Anna and their family went!
Thanks for such great posts! :)

I saw this and thought "oh man, that's a really long time to wait!" Then I looked at the calendar and realized it IS November! Now I still can't wait, but it's not as bad as what I first thought! YAYYY!!
P.S. Lily and Ellie you both do a great job keeping us updated. Thanks!

I can't say I'm relieved at all. Over the past year I've watched in mounting confusion and concern as the Duggars have dragged their children all around the country and world, often for publicity engagements or political campaigns. Yes, of course homeschooling involves learning through real life experiences, but only to a certain point. These children need stability and a real, decent education. They need their mother and father. I hope that when the show ends, the Duggars will devote the majority of their time to what they claim is most important to them, their family.

Noah said...

Well, it makes sense. They do have to film new episodes, get them edited, time-slotted, etc. And we really don't have all that long to wait, I mean after all, 2013 is only two months away!

Blessings!

Yea, someone saw them in China/Japan and said the film crew was there so I am sure that will be the next season.

How many more times can we watch them going to the dentist, shopping, and traveling to Silver Dollar City?

Where do the girls by their skirts from

Wonderful the Duggars will be back for another season! Thank you to Lily and Ellie for providing us links to prior episodes on-line. But I will miss watching new Duggar adventures till the new season begins. I share the sentiment of my Narnian friend Eustace Scrubb from the closing scene of the Dawn Treader movie (rephrased for the 19KAC show).

"We spoke often of ‘the Duggars’ in the days that followed.
When my ‘Friends’ left, after the ‘season’ ended,
I missed them with all my heart...
as I know all ‘Duggar fans’ will miss them
till the end of time."

i thought they had to return because they made the trip to japan and china and i didnt think they would leave it like that.

Anonymous said...

Of course, they'll return.
Their kids are so lucky - not only they have loving parents and don't have to deal with crazyness and bullying in schools, they live in a huge house and travel so much!
I think Johannah was a baby then, and they took that road trip to CA, and after that they travel to Central America, older girls went to Chili and Peru, the whole family travelled to Europe, and now it's Japan and China!

Very thankful. They've gotten me through very dark times in my life. Also helped me find Jesus. Thank you for letting us know, awesome blog.

GOOD!!!!!!!!!!!
I love the duggars hopefully they will have more children Michelle certainly deserves more after all she has done for everything.

Deborah Kay said...

I look forward to The Duggars returning, having just watched the You Tube show of Michelles birthday I laughed so hard when Jim Bob told Michelle he had drank out of one of the plastic cups with a towel in the bottom, so funny. A couple that can still laugh together will always be happy together. Great viewing.

Tikva said...

Yay! Hopefully there will be a trip to japan and china!!

Hi Anonymous,

In addition to shopping second-hand, the Duggar girls purchase skirts from Cato Fashions (http://catofashions.com/).

The Duggars are a breath of "fresh air" amongst a lot of terrible, air filling, tv nonsense. It's fun to see a nice family and follow their activities and family fun!

Libby D. said...

Yes something to look forward to in the year 2013! I can't wait for the season the sooner the better! The Duggars are both a joy and a blessing!

Of course TLC will run the China trip footage; but what else could there be that hasn't already be done and redone (trips to Big Sandy, dentist appts., speaking engagements,etc.) I enjoy watching the show; but it may have run its course. Perhaps a couple of specials highlighting some important milestones (i.e.: a child's wedding, someone working in their career, etc.) would be a better choice.

Pat in GA said...

I love the Duggars but I tend to agree with your sentiments. I think people would really be interested in occasional updates/specials vs. the more mundane shows that are on now.

Praise God! So thankful for the Duggar family and world stage that the Lord has placed them upon. Keep shining His light, being His salt and living for Him. You are loved and appreciated by many!

Im so happy to hear they are returning. Couldnt be soon enough for me. I have watched them since there were only 14 Children. They have so much to be thankful for.

landers said...

do we have a date when it will start? My family loves their family, and have seen them in person. And are glad that they are coming back.

Lily and Ellie said...

@landers

Hi Landers,

TLC hasn't announced the official start date for "19 Kids and Counting," but they did assure us that the show will return in 2013.

Happy New Year!

Lily and Ellie, if you were the two fabulous ladies who have been posting episodes on YouTube thank you so very much!!! I don't have cable and every week I sit down in front of my computer at work with a cup of coffee, plug my headphones in and enjoy the latest episode. Thank you for taking the time to do this!

I LOVE HUSKYS!!!!!!! said...

@Anonymous

I would like to know too! i have been wanting longer skirts and theirs are really cute and modest!!

Tannia said...

Anyone know a date when the show is coming back? I love it and have been waiting! Its so good and such a good influence for our entire family to watch (we only have 3 kids though)! I was very upset when they even stopped the reruns for a while, so glad at least they are back!

wackyzackys said...

I wish it was now! I keep looking at TLC and being disappointed that they are not starting yet! I also have no interest in the other programs!

Lily and Ellie said...

@Tannia

Hi Tannia,

New episodes will return to TLC around the last week of March.

We are honored to have you as a reader.

What is a decent education, the public school teaching all kinds of junk that doesn't matter. Like alternative life styles, birth control, abortion, handing out condemns, I think they are doing a fine job without this so called decent education. I've never seen a family more involved with each other as the Duggars. If you don't like the Duggars don't watch them or follow them. Move on to something different. There is plenty of garbage to watch on TV. I love them. They are decent Christian people with wonderful values. Can't wait to see them in 2013. One of my favorite shows. Very uplifting. Keep up the good work Duggars!!!
