  1. I'm so exited about the new series!

    I really missed watching this family and for the next season I hope we get to see more of all the new grandbabies and it would be really great if Jana could find love, she's one of my favorites.

  2. I don't understand why Jill and Jessa's names are in the title when the show also features several of their siblings. They're not more important just because they're married. The show title should accurately reflect everyone who's in it. Jill isn't even in the promo pictures.

    2. But there's more to life than that, you know. Fulfillment of your dreams and talents, for starters. For a lot of women, that doesn't mean staying home changing diapers for the next 30 years.

    3. Courtships, marriages and babies yes!!!! Staying home, changing diapers, taking care of my husband and children has been a lot more fulfilling than sitting behind a desk all day.

  6. I am so excited for this. I know a lot of people have been griping about it only being a few of the Duggars but I will take what I can get! 8 is better than 0.

  12. I'd like to see them use those blue flamingos again. That always disturbed me, using all that plastic for just one party, and the way Jim Bob expected Michael not to get paint on himself. I hope the flamingos aren't in a landfill somewhere. I'll be watching for flamingos.

    1. Holy COW, are you kidding me??? You honestly think you're going to see a bunch of blue flamingos in the show? As part of a large family, I can tell you as part of a large family, that they definitely didn't throw them all away.

      Delete
    2. We are obsessing about blue flamingos? This is important?

  13. Anything they show will be good. I just hope TLC formats the show so that half of it isn't recap after recap. So, we actually get new information.

  15. I'm hoping to see a Duggar enroll I an accredited 4 year college!!!

    Replies
    1. Wyy??! So they can accrue tens of thousands of dollars in debt and enter a marriage with that baggage - and then not be guaranteed a job in their "field"? College is not the answer to everything.

      Delete
    2. Hope to see the children be blessed with opportunities for higher education. Certainly they can't all sell used cars.

      Delete
    3. I'm sure the Duggars can afford public college tuition without going into debt. Several of the Bateses have attended Crown College which is more expensive than in-state public college tuition, and I'm sure they're not as well-off as the Duggars since their show is new.

      Delete
    4. I doubt the Duggars would be taking out college loans.

      It's more important than ever for their generation to have a college education. They (and our country) now compete on a global stage. Do you want to see the brakes put on all advancements in medicine & technology because nobody wants to go to college any more? That's not the answer. Education is.

      Delete
    5. Bernie will help us all with that..lol! Free college for everyone

      Delete
    6. Lets not forget Joseph Duggar is either still attending or attended Crown College as well (I think during the time at least one of the Bates were). So one of them has already taken a step in that direction (leaving home to attend college). I know some women would like to see one of the females do it but there are plenty of Duggar girls left; therefore, if it is meant to be it will happen:-).

      Delete
    7. Young people increasing need some post-educational training to even get a job these days. There are not enough jobs at Walmart to go around. So, yes, it would be great to see some of the Duggars go against their father's dislike of formal education. And I do not mean attending Crown College.

      Yes, students go into debt but it is a better type of debt than that incurred from buying stuff, like cars and houses. They can also work part time, take classes at night ect..
      A vibrant democracy depends on an educated population. A healthy economy these days require an educated population.

      Delete
    8. How about all the trades, and hard work they have learned? These days man children can't even change a tire! These kids would know how to survive! College degrees aside, they do educate themselves in ways higher ed can't. It's called life skills.

      Delete
  16. I would love to just continue to view inspirational stories and updates. I would like to see the family being more relaxed. I am so thankful the family is coming back. I would like to see the entire family and hear updates on all. Thank you Jesus for answering our prayers.

  19. I'm excited to see more into the lives of the adult children. I do hope we will get to see some of the rest of the family as well. Just Duggars, Seewalds, and Dillard's though, please. I hate to lose screen time on them for other branches of the family.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I am pleased to see the Duggars will be returning to TLC. I hope that they will downplay their eagerness to gain ratings by trying to entertain us, instead of being realistic. Anna is one who over does it. Jim Bob is another one. Just be yourself. I find Jinger, and Jana to be very natural. They never put on. Joy Anna is another one who is very truthful and relaxed in front of the camera. That is what we are seeking. No matter how hard Derreck tries to come across as funny, he fails. Ben is a young man with much maturity about himself. He is better off not trying to be too funny or silly. It comes across wrong to viewers. Amy Duugar is the only one who can pull that off. She knows how to be playful and cute at the same time. I hope we don't see too much of Anna. She just likes the limelight too much. And her family, including her sisters are too much. They just chatter too much. Duggars be real. Be sentimental. Be honest. Be yourself. You aren't perfect so don't try to be. Be a family. Let us see how a large family live and relate to one another.

    1. Yeah, Amy knows how to be playful alright!!

      Delete
    2. That was a bit harsh. You don't like to hear women " chatter"? They all like the lime light which is why they are reality TV stars. Hard to have a show if no one speaks.

      Delete
    3. I totally get what you're saying (the "Be sentimental. Be honest." etc.) but to be honest, I always found Anna refreshing :) I don't live my life like the Duggars, but I still always loved & appreciated all of their unique personalities...heaven only knows how I would behave in the limelight like that! Thankful most of us aren't on live TV!!! ;)

  27. I'm wondering what is going on with Jana and Jinger. How do they socialize? What are they doing to stay productive and serve others. Also, are Joseph or John David Dating anyone? What are they doing to avoid the traps their older brother fell into. Can't wait to watch your show!

  28. Bring Jim Bob and Michelle too!!!

  29. Anna for one,Jana in a courtship, Jill and Jessa being moms, how the adult kids are growing up and same for the little kids. Maybe a kid sent off to college too! Branch out to be a more rounded human.

  31. I'm hoping to see the truth being told about what goes on in that family, not some hyped-up, cleaned-up version. Is that too much to ask?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Just watch carefully. What's not true will be apparent. TLC hasn't filtered the kids' social media, so everything ever said & shown on the show should match everything ever said & shown online. If it doesn't, well there you go.

      Delete
  32. Please don't make half of the show "Coming up Next." That is just lazy production.

  33. I think TLC is very wise to slowly integrate the family back this way,before you know it, they will all be back regularly as a whole...as it should be.Looking forward to it...can't wait ☺

  43. I'd like to see some of the older kids going places alone without a sibling along.

    ReplyDelete
  44. I want to see these intelligent, gifted young people find a passion in life. Not just a passion for a life partner, though this is certainly important, but a passion for a career as opposed to a job. Jill has shown how this can be done, and I would like to see it for all the siblings. For example, Jinger seems to have a gift for photography. I would love to see her take classes to enhance that gift. Jessa seems to be gifted in the area of public speaking. I would like to see her continue to use that gift. I would love to see the process that each of the Duggar children goes through to find the direction God has for their lives.

  45. I wanna see them going to college.

    ReplyDelete
  46. It might be a legal issue. All of the "children" on the new show are 18 or older. They can sign their own contract with TLC. Wondering if that means they get to keep the profits....

    ReplyDelete
  47. Everything on the subject matter of "Jill and Jessa" I see people bringing up Jana. Does anyone ever stop to think Jana doesn't want to get married right now? Regardless of whether or not she does or doesn't, getting married isn't her identity. It's not what makes her interesting. It's not what completes her. Quite honestly everyone who says they feel bad for her annoy me. She didn't ask you to feel bad because she hasn't made a commitment to some guy yet. I doubt she wallows in discontentment because she isn't married. You all should be admiring her (as far as I can tell from being a public spectator) graceful surrender to whatever is going on in her life rather than feeling bad for her.

    1. I don't feel bad that she hasn't married I feel bad that she is stuck raising her younger siblings and has no life outside the home.

  48. Jessa and Ben and their adoption process!

  49. Hoping to see Jana or Jinger in a courtship!

  50. They keep talking about adoption. I think that's a great thing! They would make good foster parents too. There are tons of children in the USA foster care system that need families.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I thought they said they didn't qualify for adoption right now? Too young, and their own baby is too young.

      Delete
    2. I think the duggar family will have a hard time adopting now that thier family name is tainted. Jessa and Jill may never have the chance to adopt

      Delete
    3. Anon 9:21am - I wouldn't worry about the name being tainted. I know someone who had been in much worse trouble but later managed to adopt. Unfortunately, sometimes when there's a will there's a way, and agencies or individuals who will cooperate.

      Delete
    4. Don't you have to be older to adopt?

      Delete
    5. I disagree with that. It is still possible to adopt even if you're not perfect. My brother adopted a child from a relative of his wife who was not in a position to care for the baby she was carrying. He didn't have a lot of money but was able to give this child a home because he had enough room in his heart. 30 yrs later that child is a father as well and is caring for his brothers child. Adoption is not easy but it can be done.

    "AnonymousFebruary 26, 2016 at 2:37 PM
    Please don't make half of the show "Coming up Next." That is just lazy production."

    I noticed this as well. I remember timing one episode. I would pause for the coming up's and any double used footage (from previous shows future shows etc...) and the repeated footage. I think maybe a show can only stay fresh for so long and then it needs to be thrown up grab the good and given a new tweak. O this is not the case for all shows and I can't remember the episode but.... for something that is on for about 20-23 there was only 15-18 minutes of fresh footage.

    A big mistake could be to simply fall back on old habits. The kids are growing and it seems more about them. I think it would be wise to have a new look and interpretation.

    ReplyDelete
  52. This is so awesome! I am glad they are finally getting their show back...why penalize siblings for one person's choice? (and I still pray for Anna & Josh often as well...)

    Thanks for keeping us updated :D

  53. With a plethora of viewers choosing to dump or delete the TLC channel from their cable systems, I don't believe the return of the Duggars will have a long life on TV. Too many lies & deceptions purported by the Duggars have been revealed. I believe there is more to be revealed.

    ReplyDelete

    1. TLC really is trying to milk it dry, aren't they? "All good things must come to an end." Unless you made them sign an iron-clad, long-term contract.

      Delete
    2. I think the problem is that the liberal left is going to keep the Duggars in their sights. They won't stop digging up stories, and people to badmouth them and everything else. They're not going to leave this family alone which is painful to watch.

      Delete
    3. Well see, time will tell, there sure are alot of fans still.Have a lovely day y'all☺

      Delete
    4. If the Duggars don't like the negative attention then they should stay away from social media and television, yet they don't. So it seems for some strange reason they seem to enjoy the negativity.

  54. Yes!!!☺!!☺..I've been waiting for the Duggars return..Have not watch TLC since they took the show off the air..Thank GOD!!

  55. I don't know about you guys but I get disgusted by the vile comments I read towards this poor family.I ve started to report every vulgar comment on youtube and Instagram.The whole family does not deserve this.i especially get upset when it's towards those poor girls.I think others should start reporting some of it too.Its just not right.

  58. Yay!!! Very excited to see them back. They show great examples of how to deal with the good stuff in life and how to overcome the tough stuff. The family seems to all come closer together when things get tough, I think that is a great image/example to project to this word now a days. When people seem to give up on each other too easily. God bless the duggars and the courage they have as a family in today's world.

  59. So excited about the new adventures of the older children!!! Buying wood at the lumbar yard,going to the thrift store, going to a baby shower. How much more exciting can these new adventures get???

  60. I am not going to watch it. And my daughters neither. Since Super-Tuesday... supporting the Duggars is supporting GOP and Trump. My girls are ready for Hilary! Hilary Clinton is the kind of woman Anna Duggar should look up to. She suffered the same, but look at her now. Great mother, great grandmother, a great wife and a great woman in every way.

    1. You're kidding, right? You do know that Hilary supports partial-birth abortion, don't you?

    2. @Annonymous March 2 6:55AM. Do you even know who the Duggars are or what they believe? Surely you jest thinking any of them would look up to Hiliary. She wears PANTS for goodness sake!!

      Delete
    3. No offense, but why is it wrong for women to wear pants? I still don't understand this? I think it's about modesty, but why is it ok to wear a skirt that shows some skin from the knee down, but you can't wear pants even if it shows ni skin at all?

      Delete
    4. Thank you Lily and Ellie for posting this. What is the point of having a discussion if it is all one sided.
      I ask you all really: Donald or Hillary? Not great choices but I follow politics very closely and really is Donald "more" Christian than Hillary? He divorced his first wive because she wasn't ok with his philandering, left a second wife, and is now on to wife 3. I honestly don't believe he would do anything about Roe v. Wade and the laws pertaining to abortion, nor do I believe he would touch any gay marriage laws. Personally I would be content with that but if one wishes to vote for someone who cares about the poor and wants to take care of others, Bernie Sanders is the obvious choice. When reflecting on ALL the teaching of Jesus, who has continuously been steady? Jesus was a radical in his time, families worshiping together is a major factor in the spread Christianity. I am Canadian so I won't be voting obviously but who would have Jesus thrown out of the temple?
      Thanks L.
