19 Kids and Counting spinoff may be in the works

Posted on


In the wake of allegations that Josh Duggar molested five underage girls when he was a teenager, 19 Kids and Counting has been dropped from TLC’s schedule—and dropped by numerous advertisers. But People is reporting that the franchise might live on as a spinoff about newlyweds Jill and Derick Dillard, as well as Jessa and Ben Seewald. 

“The show had begun to focus more and more on the next generation of Duggars, anyway—mainly Jill and Jessa and their marriages and babies,” a source tells People. “That’s when the show got its highest ratings.” 

TLC has not yet announced the fate of the series or commented on the rumored spinoff. Head over to People for the full story.
