Fans of The Little Couple can finally celebrate the return of Dr. Jennifer Arnold, Bill Klein, Will, and Zoey to TLC. The series has been on hiatus for much longer than anybody anticipated, but new episodes begin soon, and the family has big developments to share. What’s the latest?
As was previously reported by the Inquisitr, The Little Couple has been off the air due to a complicated legal issue involving the production company and the network. However, it was recently confirmed that Jen, Bill, and the kids were actively filming, and everybody waited with baited breath for a firm premiere date.
Arnold and Klein have kept fans updated on some of their fun excursions, including lots of time in Florida this summer. In addition, Bill recently teased his Twitter followers that they had exciting things in the works he couldn’t wait to share. Now, as People reveals, the news is out. The Little Couple returns to TLC on September 19, and the family is relocating to St. Petersburg, Florida!
Once the news broke, Arnold’s new employer released additional details. Jen has accepted a position at Johns Hopkins Children’s Hospital, where she begins this month as the medical director of their expanding Simulation Center. The Little Couple star will also be a part-time assistant professor at Johns Hopkins University.
As Johns Hopkins points out, Arnold was born in St. Petersburg and spent quite a bit of time at All Children’s Hospital as a child. The Little Couple star married Bill in St. Petersburg as well, and her parents recently moved from Texas back to Florida too. Jen says that she’s thrilled to return home to Florida, noting that this job opportunity is the perfect fit both professionally and personally for her and the entire family.
This move comes at an exciting time for Johns Hopkins, as they are working on tripling the space for their Simulation Center and expanding their services. Jen will lead the way to improve medical education and patient safety via the center’s services. The neonatologist will also work toward the goal of adding training for parents, military personnel, and first responders in dealing with high-risk and emergency situations in settings like critical care units, trauma centers, and neonatal intensive care units.
What about Bill’s Houston-based business, pet boutique and salon Rocky & Maggie’s? Klein tweeted that he will have more news to share soon, but he let his Little Couple fans know that the boutique will continue in Houston. In addition, he teased that he has a new invention on the way that also seems to be focused on pets. Many of his supporters are hoping that perhaps he will be adding a second location in Florida, but he has not confirmed that’s the case as of yet.
In terms of the new season, Little Couple fans have a lot to look forward to this fall. Zoey has become a big talker, and Will is as adorable as ever. The family will be taking an international trip, and the new episodes will follow them as they consider this big job opportunity and move. Everybody has a bit longer to wait before the exciting return, but it is exciting to finally have confirmation that Dr. Jen Arnold, Bill Klein, Will, and Zoey are soon returning to TLC with new Little Couple episodes.
