Little People, Big World star Jeremy Roloff has spent the last fourteen years on television as viewers have gotten to see the thirteen-year-old boy grow up to be a 28-year-old married father of one. Earlier today, Jeremy and his wife Audrey announced that the current season will be their last — and he had nothing but kind and appreciative things to say about the experience.
“After 14 years, over 300 episodes, and 17 seasons, the time has come,” Jeremy’s Facebook announcement begins. “A year ago I made the decision that this season would be our last. It has been an amazing run, and I can’t say thank you enough to all of you who have watched and supported us along the ride. We have the most loyal fans on TV and we appreciate every one of you. You are what made doing this so fun.🙏🏼”
Jeremy also emphasizes that he remains #TeamRoloff and #TeamLPBW. “We will still be supporting the family as they carry the #LPBW torch onward,” he writes, before clarifying that the decision was just the best one for him and Audrey specifically. “The show must go on!” he insists.
Fans need not worry that Jeremy and Audrey’s departure from the show is an indication that they plan to remove themselves from the public eye. “We’re not disappearing,” Jeremy says. “We have a lot of exciting stuff in the works and are eager to continue the work that the Lord has called us to!”
Jeremy concludes with more positivity and appreciation for fans and for their experience working on the show:
Again, we thank you, and always enjoy when we get a chance to meet one of you. Whether it be in the airport, on the street, at pumpkin season or at one of our upcoming Beating50percent events! THANK YOU for all the love and support. Your messages, comments, gifts, and mail are noticed and appreciated. ❤️You guys are the most loyal and encouraging fans.
I also want to give a big thank you to the team at TLC. Thanks for putting up with us;) You’ve provided us with a grand opportunity and for that we are forever grateful. *Ember with that cheese smack though. 😂
Under the mercy, -Jeremy
In addition to their written announcement, Jeremy and Audrey were joined by their almost-two-year-old daughter Ember for a video announcement clarifying the family’s new focus and their gratitude:
Congratulations to Jeremy and Amber! Just like millions of others, we have been following Jeremy’s life (and Audrey’s to a lesser extent) for years, and we couldn’t be happier that their exposure from being on the show and sharing their lives has helped them successfully pursue other projects that are important to them. It’s also refreshing to hear someone that was on a reality show for more than a decade — including part of his childhood — who considers the experience a hugely positive one. It makes me feel a little less guilty for being a fan of the genre. 😉
