Filming for Teen Mom 2 Season 6 is underway, and Corey Simms is the latest cast member to be spotted with MTV cameras. That means the crew is up in West Virginia filming Corey and his family, including his dad, stepmom, wife, and twin daughters.
Last year, there was some speculation as to who and who would not be coming back for the new season of the show. After dealing with some family drama, Leah Messer-Calvert decided not sign on for a sixth season of the show. With rumors swirling that she and her husband, Jeremy Calvert, were getting a divorce, most fans understood why she would not want to air her life on reality television. A source spoke to Us Weekly at the time and explained why Leah had decided not to sign on for the reality television show.
“She doesn’t want her drama on TV anymore. She’s scarred by how her split with Corey Simms played out on TV.”
With Leah not wanting to do a sixth season of the show, that meant Corey Simms and his family would not film for the show either. The Ashley explained why, without Leah, Corey and his family would not film.
“The show is about the mothers and MTV will not continue on with Leah’s story if Leah isn’t part of it. Also, it’s highly unlikely Jeremy would have signed on for this mess anyway. Corey and his family will also not film, due to this reason. Corey’s father, Jeff, confirmed this earlier this month via Twitter.”
After some time, Leah Messer-Calvert decided to sign on for the sixth season of the show. It is unclear what made her change her mind, but some reports have suggested that the mother of three needed the money. However, the fact that she and Jeremy Calvert were able to work out their marriage (the couple spent New Year’s Eve together) may have played a role in her changing her mind as well.
As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Corey Simms dad, Jeff, hinted that the he and his family would be back for Teen Mom 2. While he didn’t confirm for sure, the new photo that he shared on Twitter made things clear.
“We are back to smacking these things and having crews hover around us! @NanaSimms @CoreySimms2 @mirandabridget #TM2”
Leah Messer-Calvert hasn’t confirmed that she is filming, but with the crews back in West Virginia, it seems likely that she and her family are filming for the show as well. So far, she and Chelsea Houska are the only cast members who have not been spotted with camera crews; Jenelle Evans and Kailyn Lowry have both been spotted filming.
It is unclear when the new season of Teen Mom 2 will air, but rest assured that Corey Simms and his family as well as Leah Messer-Calvert and her family will be back.
