Duggar Season Premiere Airs Tonight

The wait is over! New episodes of 19 Kids and Counting begin tonight. Tune in to TLC at 9PM ET PT/8PM CT for 19 Kids and Counting "Duggars & Mothers," an hour-long premiere in which Jill and her family start planning for her Duggar-sized wedding.

New episodes of 19 Kids and Counting will air through November. What's in store for the upcoming season?

Following Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard's exciting engagement finale on 19 Kids and Counting this spring, the new season picks up with the happy couple planning for their big day. Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar start the emotional journey of giving away their first daughter in marriage, as Jill and Derick plan their rapidly approaching nuptials. From dress shopping to cake tasting, it's all hands on deck as the engaged pair prepare to say their "I dos" in front of more than 1,000 of their closest friends and family. But this happy occasion is bittersweet as the family starts to realize what giving away Jill will mean for their close-knit clan.

Also this season, Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald continue to grow closer, as their courtship takes an unexpected turn when Ben makes a move to live closer to Jessa. Jim Bob and Michelle celebrate 30 years of marriage as Jill and Derick prepare their new home together with the help of the family. The newly engaged couple also tends to Derick's mom, Cathy, as she bravely battles cancer. And after their first year in Washington, D.C., Josh and Anna Duggar

and their three kids decide it may be time to make a few changes in their own growing family.

This season, TLC's 19 Kids and Counting will celebrate its 150th episode. Including the five original specials and seasons of 17 Kids and Counting and 18 Kids and Counting, the Duggars have starred in more than 200 episodes.

  5. Just wondering what size Jills ring is, i have looked thru past blogs and i cant seem to find it.Is her ring bigger than Jessa's?Also, i wonder if the girls get the same book and video that Josh got on the birds and the bees talk? I bet Michelle had "The Big Talk" with Jill.Im sure that conversation wont be filmed like Josh's was.Cant wait for the show:-)

  10. Yeah! This is my FAVORITE television show!

  11. I understand that extended family relatives can be large, but how do you have 1,000 CLOSE FRIENDS? It seems that a close friend would be a much smaller number of people whom you know intimately and they you...An acquaintance isn't a close friend.

    1. As Jill explained, they know alot of families that have alot of kids, so therefore it adds up, makes sense.

      Delete
    2. They belong to.more than one church plus the homeschooling network, most of them have over 8 kids per family. They probably don't have to know as many adults when they have so many kids.

      Delete
    3. They are close friends.with alot of peole.who have very large families, so it adds up quickly.If y'all think.about it, that makes total sense.

  12. I live in Australia and unless you have Pay TV, we don't get to see this show on free to air TV. Thank goodness for this site where I can get my Duggar fix, even if its not full episodes :)

    ReplyDelete
  13. I hope someone will upload episodes of the news season. It will be a long time before we get to see these episodes in Australia. They are showing when Josh and Anne were expecting their first child here!

  14. I'm so glad that the duggars are continuing for another season. I heard rumors they might not. The more the duggars are on tv the less the honey boo boos of the world can be. It's nice to have a respectable tv family!

  15. Where can we watch the new one at? (:

  18. At the end of every season I am always bummed that it has to end.... Im sure this season will be no different...... In part I wish it was a weekly show year round but then again distance does make the heart grow fonder..... they keep me coming back. Love the morals, love the kindness, love the gentleness. I have grown as a mother and wife in Christ, in part, because of this show

    ReplyDelete
  29. Can't wait to see the new episodes. Can you please post the episode on here or youtube because otherwise people like us with no tv won't be able to see them. Our family doesn't watch tv other than dvd's because we got rid of our cable. There is way too much junk on television these days and we find ourselves doing more as a family now. We have so enjoyed our family more in the last two years. Thank you for all your posts to the blog, we really appreciate it. May God continue to bless you and the Duggar family.

  30. Unfortunately, in Alaska, we can't see it until 8pm AKST, which is 12am ET!!! We have to wait an extra 3 hours :(

  31. IM SOOOO EXCITED!!!! I have literally not been more excited for a tv show series in my whole life! May God bless ya'll from Carrollton,TX

  32. Since Ben and Jessa's engagement was fairly recent, will it still be on this upcoming season, or no?
    Looking forward to this new season!!!

  33. How about posting some more family-survival tips? (ie: organization, education, discipline, clean-up, finances, etc.) I really miss those, and could really use some new ideas. There's just been so much blogging about courtship and marriage, that some of us could really use a nice break from these subjects.

    1. I agree...and I want to know what is happening with everyone else even the younger kids...it's nice to see the two girls so happy but they are not the only ones in the family

  34. So cool! Wish I could watch it; I don't have cable!
    Would you be able to put a video of it on the blog, pleeeeease?

    ReplyDelete
  35. I don't have cable! Is there a way to live stream or view the episode online after it airs tonight?

  36. I'm watching the show and literally I started to cry in the first three minutes when they showed previews of Jana crying, boy oh boy I'm in trouble:-) I better stock up on the kleenex,lol.:-):-)

  37. The way Derick proposed to Jill has to be one of THE SWEETEST most thoughtful things I have ever seen!!! Good things come to good people!! Congratulations!!!
    Jessa & Ben~Congratulations!!! Jessa, surely with cameras following you, it would be somewhat uncomfortable to show your relationship on TV. Ben is a VERY nice young man & can tell he loves you!! Love him back......Lucky!!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Now y'all see why its important to wait and find out the facts before yu judge or speculate about things.Im referring to the house Jill and Derick live in.So many were freaking out about it and it ended up being a temporary sweet jesture from Mom.and pop Duggar to let them stay there rent free till they sell it....lessened learned to the critics, I hope.

    ReplyDelete
  39. My sweet neighbor is having us over tomorrow to watch it. Otherwise we'd have to wait until it gets posted on YouTube.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Goodness gracious, I really love this family, im already bumed that its half over.I just wonder how many non-fans are watching?Wouldnt that be a waste of their time? I sure dont watch shows that i dislike, when i could be watching something else instead.Strange, huhh?

  50. I was disappointed that they wasted the first ten minutes on old footage from last year. We already knew all of that stuff. They should have just gotten right to it. Also, being September, I really don't care about Mother's Day. That was a long time ago. TLC needs to step up with it's air time with this series. Just filled with old news.

  51. Jessa and Jinger are so tan .. How do they do that? For some reason I can't really see the Duggar girls laying out in the sun haha!

    ReplyDelete
  52. I noticed Derick's mom was treated at a Catholic hospital (Mercy Hospital).

    ReplyDelete
  53. What a house!! I think Josh and Anna were looking displeased that they got that small 2-bedroom house, while Jill was getting a 3-story mansion. Of course, it is temporary, but so nice to start their life worry free in a huge house like this! Yes, they did not have this house when Josh/Anna were getting married, but JB could offer them to move there in 2012, when they already had 2 kids...

    I think Jessa was a little envious too.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Can we get an update on Jinger and Joy??

    ReplyDelete
  55. Will any of the kids marry someone of another race?

    ReplyDelete
  56. Anna should be preggo with number 4 by now.

  57. Why is it that none of the Dugger children go away to college?

    ReplyDelete
  58. It's about time! I have waited too long for your new season to start. I look forward to tuesday nights when it is a new "Duggar Night." Thank you for such good programing. I have been with you since the begining. I also watch your re-runs dailey from 10am to 12 noon. I hope TLC continues with the Duggars.
    Thank you, debbie peralta

  61. God love this family, He has blessed it so. Michelle indeed looks really trim these days. Amazing woman...after so many children...It's interesting to watch how this family goes through the changes from having all young kids, as the episodes of 10 years ago, and now watching how they prepare their older ones for marriage. While it may be true that so much attention has been on the courtship and engagements, they serve as examples to the rest of the world that first comes love, then comes marriage and then the baby carriage...they are doing it the right way!

  62. I was so upset last night I was so looking forward to the new season and ended up with such a migraine i fell asleep and didn't wake up till it wasover. I glad tlc reruns them before the new episodes the next week

    ReplyDelete
  63. Will all of the new season be on Netflix?

    ReplyDelete
  64. I don't think that a 10 minute "recap" was necessary at the start of the episode. It just wasted time. Just get on with it and move along, as this is already really old news and happenings. Mother's Day was a long time ago.

    1. I know ,right? Why the recap? We all have seen it lots by now.By the time commercials are factored in we're lucky if we see 30 minutes of an hour show.

  65. so the wedding is being aired on new season, but online, it is already talking bout Jill being pregnant. shouldnt the pregnancy have waited til after the episode of Jill and Derrick getting married.....the show needs to keep up with the episodes if possible

  67. I so loved how Derick was involved in the wedding plans. Even if he wanted something silly, it was adorable! When Josh and Anna were getting married,he and Jim Bob came across like it was only a day for the "Bride". Josh only cared about the wedding night. Derick seems sincere in wanting to be apart of the big day, not just the big night. Makes that Derick even more lovable! #lovingDerickandJill
