Duggars Return Date 2019


Following Josiah and Lauren Duggar's pregnancy announcement, there's more big news to share today! Can you handle all the excitement, or would you rather we wait until tomorrow for this announcement? It's something that y'all have been wondering about for weeks, so we will go ahead and tell you...

New episodes of Counting On will return to TLC this fall! Also this fall, Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar will welcome multiple new grandbabies. There's a lot to look forward to in Duggar Land.

    1. They could have said it was canceled.

      How dare you said such a thing they could have said it was canceled very rude comment Anonymous so tired of these mean comments from this blog very rude

    3. I've read rude comments about TV shows elsewhere, too. It's not just here.

      Delete
    4. I don't think the commenter was being rude at all but trying to say be thankful and not complain about waiting a bit for the new season because talc can cancel any show they wish at anytime.

    5. Neddy Constant, I agree with you, the rude, mean and harsh comments are old, I don't care to read biterness, jealousy, immaturity, sometimes downright hate from lost and angry souls, its ugly and shows nothing but disrespect and the real root of it, jealousy. I used to visit this blog everyday, now I visit maybe every few months off season to learn about a new season. I understand difference of opinions, and Ellie is superb with this blog and I appreciate her, but letting these types of disrespectful comments in has driven kind people away in mass numbers. The comments on a post long ago was many, now they have dramatically dropped. People who come here, like you, love the Duggars and it hurts to read the negativity and degrading things here. Ellie, I know you are ceazy busy running 3 fantastic blogs and can't read everything, but if the comments could be scanned so this is a nice place to visit again, that would be great. The confrontational people aren't showing opposing opinions or constructive critisism, they are sharing for perhaps argument or to rid their anger. This isn't a counseling center to vent anger and use the Duggars or fellow commenter's as a punching bag. Thank you, for all you do and your (possible) consideration on this matter. I think many will agree except negative posters. Much love and respect! Thank you, Neddy, for your thoughtful and very true thoughts. God bless all.

    6. I think the commenter who said “it could have been canceled” was just replying to the comment that the new season seemed too far away. Yes it is far but it could always be worse. It could be canceled. I don’t think there was any mean intent in that comment. I’m getting tired of reading such condemnation for innocent comments.

      Delete
    7. Neddy, I believe 6:59s point was that OP shouldn’t be complaining because the show is not canceled, which would be worse than having to wait until the fall for the new season, not that they wanted it to be canceled. Also as far as people making rude comments, that’s part of life when you’re living in the public eye, I don’t think the Duggars are affected by strangers opinions, and you don’t need to be either.

      Delete
    8. Just maybe the poster wasn’t being rude but saying yes it’s a long way off but it could have been worse & we could have been told it’s not coming back on at all. I thought religious minded people tried to see the good in folks, not everyone is being negative with a simple comment. I feel people will be alienated from this blog as sometimes the most innocuous of comments is taken out of context. No one should feel they have to pick their way through a mind field before writing anything. Obviously anything rude or derogatory should be picked up & people do want to defend a family they like, I get very angry myself with some comments that are downright rude. However sometimes you need to give the poster the benefit of the doubt, & iv learnt this recently when jumping to conclusions myself that are wholly wrong.

    9. It runs on too far of a delay for my taste. Needs to be shown in real time, otherwise it's all out in the news already. Dumb how they have such a delay.

  2. Good news lots of new grandbabies, waiting to hear about new courtships as well

    2. 8:39, who says it’s not a word? You obviously don’t live in the south.

    3. It's the MOST important word in the world to most of us grandparents. Keep your negativity out. Tracy

    4. Grandbabies is a word. Quick Google search brought it up in multiple online dictionaries.

    5. Grandbabies is in the dictionary. Check it out.

  3. That will be great! The grandparents might break speed limits rushing from attending one birth to another! :) What if they all give birth on the same day? Or at least in the same week? Some babies come later, some earlier... And they all come around the 10th birthday of Duggar's first grandchild, Mackynzie.

    Replies
    1. I think there will be a bit of time between births. It would be interesting if two or more occur on the SAME day though.

      Delete
    2. They usually announce at around 12 weeks gestation and they all announced a couple of weeks apart, I think Lauren is due early December if that's the case with her but she might have decided to announce late after what happened the last although most women feel safe after 12 weeks.

      Delete
    3. I think Lauren is further along than 12 weeks. They said the baby is due in the fall & that would be late October/early November. Lauren is probably 4 months & wanted to wait before letting the public know about their happy news & I for one am glad they did.also there is a picture of her on Instagram & she looks around 4 months gestation.

  4. Fall, why so far away. They make us wait so long between and then they are so behind. It seems like the Bates are on so often, oh well I guess patience is a virtue 😇💙

    1. So they can broadcast the births and you won't have to wait till March 2020 to see them.

      Delete
    2. Anoniem- It's all at least six months behind. What you'll likely see in the fall is stuff that happened many months prior. You may see pregnancy announcements, but not actual births.

      Delete
    3. Different stations. UP TV and TLC are different companies.

  5. why is Grandma Dugger no longer in the photos?

    ReplyDelete
  6. Since FIVE of them are pregnant, the new season will consist of showing them give birth. Somehow I'm not sure I really want to watch that.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. No. The season after this will show the births, at least the full episodes featuring the births.

      Delete
    2. Anon 4:24 I agree with you. It will be a whole season of births and maybe a couple of courtship thrown in the mix. There are already birth shows and wedding shows on tv. That's a shame that there isn't anything else going on but these 2 types of events. They are important events, but they are their families events and we see and experience those things in our own lives all the time. I know they do this so TLC will pay for these expenses, but come on now, enough is enough of watching a reality show about births and courtships. Why don't the adult kids open businesses and show the ups and downs of starting your own business? Something like that would make more sense then what it has been.

      Delete
    3. Anonymous 2:06 I don't think the Duggars are courting, getting married and having babies just for TLC. These are simply the things that TLC has chosen to show us.

  7. Yayyyyyy! I'm looking forward to it.

  8. I can't wait for the fall so I can see all the new addition's

  9. Can’t wait!! It’s my favorite show!

  10. Do you know the season premiere date? Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  11. In 10 years they have gone from 0 to 17 grandbabies. Any guesses what the count will be 10 years from now?

  12. I can't wait that long either but I have a dvr and saved the last season

  13. Im surprised John and Abbie are not pregnant yet

    1. They could be and we just don’t know it yet. But I think they’re going to wait a year.

  14. I sure wish they were on more often

  15. That’s a long wait for a season which will only have like 5 episodes...

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I can see it now. Each episode with be one of the girls giving birth.

      Delete
    2. Yep 11:44 it's the same old same old.

      Delete
    3. And the endless recap of each person’s pregnancy, birth or how it prompted baby fever. Nothing like 20-30 min of a “new” episode that shows old footage of “whenever I was pregnant...” I get it, it’s their thing but we need new content or format, please!

      Show play dates, managing life, jobs, things we can relate to, out in the community, volunteering.

  16. So exciting! CANNOT wait! Bring back the whole family for a full season!

  18. YAYAYAYAAY, I can't wait to see the new season!!!!!!!!!!!! I LOVE THE DUGGARS since 2007!!!!!

  19. I,m so Happy your all coming back but please do it so people outside the USA can share in your Joy and love and let us see the show and the clips we love the Duggar,s all over the world TLC you must share the show and mini clips at the same time WW there must be a couple of Channels that will let you do thid

    ReplyDelete
  20. The only thing about the new season is that it will be about a year behind, at this rate it will be mid next year before we see pregnancy announcements or birth, with all the release of news you guys do, the show is so outdated it's almost irrelevant

    1. Maybe they’ll fit a lot in and we’ll get more caught up.

  21. Why mention Jim Bob and Michelle's grandchildren? I thought they were NOT going to be on this spinoff show. TLC stated that these two would not appear yet they have elbowed their way on this program. There is a lot to feature that does not ever have to include them. TLC broke their word.

    ReplyDelete

    1. TLC does whatever gets ratings. If the fans want JB and Michelle then TLC will have them on the show.

      Delete
    2. No, they said JOSH would no longer appear, and that Jim Bob and Michelle were no longer going to be the focus on the show, but they didn’t say they wouldn’t ever be back on.

      Delete
    3. You can always stop watching if that bothers you.

      Delete
    4. 19 K and C was taken off the air after the Josh scandals! That should have included Jim Bob & Michelle and the rest of the family, too. You can't get your car taken away for breaking the rules and then just grab the keys to the other car in the driveway and take off. If someone breaks the TLC rules again, will they be rewarded with another separate show?

    2. Who knows? My money is on Abbie.

    3. I don’t see her getting pregnant again until after they move, and wouldn’t expect an announcement until the new year from them. I could see Abby and John announcing a pregnancy at the end of the year.

      Delete
    4. Please stop. Why is it the only thing people are interested in is who is announcing a pregnancy next ? There are 5 expecting already isn’t that enough to keep you happy. Believe me I love babies as much as anyone, I should do, they have been my life’s work for over 30 years now, & everyday I deliver at least one. However there is more to woman than being baby producers & I think jinger & Jeremy will want to enjoy little felicity for a while before adding to their family. Also they are in the process of moving to California & as such it would be much better to wait till they are settled as a family before adding another baby into the mix.

      Delete
    5. Why is it the only thing people are interested in is who is announcing a pregnancy next? I don't know...could it be that the Duggars make a big deal about this, selling stories to magazines, doing quirky gender reveals, taping births, posting a zillion baby pictures, and making the whole having a baby thing be exactly what their show has always been about? I don't think it's the posters here who started this phenomenon.

      Delete
    6. Have to remember, the DUGGARS became part of our (fans) lives because of their large family and baby ater baby after baby. . . .so we (fans) are interested in their grandchildren. . . .coming baby after baby after baby since 2009.

      Delete
    7. I don't think it's just the fans who are anxious to hear about babies. The sisters themselves quiz each other on whether they're pregnant or not, remember?

  27. SO glad they are officially coming back. SO long to wait, however. Its not even June yet. Yes, it is exciting with the new babies coming. I am also hoping for new courtship news as well. Will be reading this blog every day to keep up with the news. Thanks as always Ellie!!

    1. We've always knew they were returning, Ellie is probably just letting the fans know that they will be back on soon, no big deal, I think they will be back on after Jessa has her baby and Jinger and Jeremy move to California.... I'm sure TLC will announce it soon..

      Delete
  28. Totally predictable. They always announce a pregnancy the day before they have show announcements. Those Duggars are savvy at marketing.

  29. "Fall" is NOT a return date. It's a teaser.

  30. If Abbie, Jill and Jinger were to get pregnant there would be 20 grandkids and counting... Can't wait to see this Season, so much going on...

  34. Joy and Kendra got married in the same year, had their first kids within the same year and are both due to have their second come mid-autumn. Here's to hoping their second babies are both girls as they already have a boy each.

  40. I use to come to this blog every night but stopped because I would get so upset by the haters they allow on this site. These professional haters who have nothing better to do than come to sites of mostly Christian or conservatives whom they hate and spread hate and lies need to be censored! If the publishers of this site thinks it is being open minded by allowing this trash they are wrong - it is pushing true Duggar fans out. I can understand allowing comments from different ways of thinking but to allow the down right mean spirited and hate filled is just wrong. Also not happy about the announcement that is not really an announcement. What is the real date of show's return? Also wish the family would leave the horrid TLC - the network censors this wonderful family show yet has some of the most sick people and shows on - makes no sense!
