After a lengthy legal battle involving their production company, TLC’s The Little Company is FINALLY returning for a new season! And America’s favorite little family has some BIG changes in store as they will be packing up and leaving Houston, Texas behind for a new home in Florida!
More on the Florida move in a minute — first, let’s watch the preview trailer as Dr. Jennifer Arnold and hubby Bill Klein get us all caught up on how much has changed since the last time we saw the family on TV:
(I dunno – I kinda think maybe Will and Zoey are ready for their own spin-off? Maybe “Will and Zoey Take St. Petersburg?”)
As the trailer reveals, the family takes an overseas trip to England and Scotland. But that’s just the beginning of the extensive traveling the Arnolds will be doing this season. From the press release:
At the start of this season, Jen and Bill take the kids on their first international trip to the United Kingdom when Jen is invited to participate in a conference in Scotland. It’s not all work and no play, however, as the family takes the opportunity to visit a scotch distillery, a castle where Will and Zoey feel quite at home and plenty more adventures as they make their way to London, such as questioning a royal guard and partaking in proper British tea. Throughout the season, the family will continue to expand their horizons stateside, including a visit to Washington D.C. to host an adoption gala, which coincides with Zoey’s fifth birthday celebration! Later in the season, Will also celebrates his birthday during a ski trip to Vermont, where the kids experience snow for the first time.
Now, about that whole Florida thing… The preview trailer merely teases the possibility of a move, but [SPOILER ALERT] the press release confirms that Dr. Jen does accept the Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital job in St. Petersburg. She took to Facebook moments ago and confirmed by writing “So excited to join Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital as medical director of simulation.” Congratulations Dr. Jen!
I really cannot imagine how difficult the decision must have been for Jen and Bill — they are so involved in the Houston community. Plus, there’s Bill’s pet boutique and store Rocky & Maggie’s! I live in Texas and I confess that I am bummed to be losing this family from our list of kick butt Texans — but of course I wish the family the best. (I was in Houston late last year and the things I was most excited about was finding Bill’s pet boutique and seeing the offices of My 600 Pound Life‘s Dr. Nowzaradan. LOL #TLCjunkie)
