MTV announced earlier today that it will air a third installment of its popular Teen Mom franchise titled Teen Mom 3. The announcement comes just one day before Teen Mom 2 wraps up it’s second successful season with part two of its Reunion Special with Dr. Drew Tuesday night.
At this time there are no more details available, but it is assumed the new quartet of young moms will be chosen from the upcoming fourth season of 16 and Pregnant set to premiere March 27 with back-to-back episodes. There were some reliable rumors that MTV tried out some of the girls from seasons 3A and 3B of 16 and Pregnant, but for various reasons decided not to move forward at that time.
