The ever-expanding Duggar family is officially returning to TLC on Sept. 2! The new season, which will include 19 Kids and Counting‘s 150th episode, promises to feature “big changes” within the family.
Following Jill and Derick’s exciting engagement finale, the new season picks up with the happy couple planning for their big day. Jim Bob and Michelle start the emotional journey of giving away their first daughter in marriage as Jill and Derick plan their rapidly approaching nuptials. From dress shopping to cake tasting, it’s all hands on deck as the engaged pair prepare to say their “I dos” in front of more than 1,000 of their closest friends and family. But this happy occasion is bittersweet as the family starts to realize what giving away Jill will mean to their close-knit clan.
Although Jill and Derick Dillard’s wedding is sure to be a focal point during the season, we’re also set to learn more about Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald’s relationship status.
“Jessa and Ben continue to grow closer as their courtship takes an unexpected turn when Ben makes a move to live closer to Jessa,” teases the press release. We also know they went on a big mission trip together — ramping up speculation about a possible engagement.
There is also speculation that Josh and Anna Duggar are expecting their fourth baby. TLC fueled the flame by saying, “After their first year in Washington, D.C., Josh, Anna and their three kids decide it may be time to make a few changes in their own growing family.”
New episodes of 19 Kids and Counting premiere on TLC on Tuesday, Sept. 2 at 9/8c. Before then, TLC is airing Dishing with the Duggars for three weeks straight, beginning on Monday, Aug. 25 at 1/12c p.m.
