Teen Mom fans rejoice — another installment of the popular MTV docu-series about young, struggling mothers is on its way. Four new girls’ lives will be documented by the network and most likely bring some serious drama.
According to Wet Paint, Teen Mom 4 is currently being cast by MTV and will center around the lives of four new young mothers, who will likely not be featured on a new season of the show’s first reality parenting show, 16 and Pregnant, like the rest of the cast members were.
The report claims that casting call for Teen Mom 4 went up on MTV’s casting website recently and that the new cast will likely be moms in their 20s, rather than teenagers who are pregnant in high school.
This could mean that the show won’t be titled Teen Mom 4 or have the name Teen Mom in it at all. The series could be more of what the current Teen Mom OG and Teen Mom 2 franchises are now: 20 something mothers struggling with parenthood and life.
Fans are also a bit worried that this new Teen Mom franchise series could mean the end of their favorite series’ Teen Mom OG and Teen Mom 2.
As many fans may remember, Teen Mom was the original series, which was a spin-off of 16 and Pregnant. Maci Bookout, Farrah Abraham, Catelynn Lowell, and Amber Portwood were chosen from their season to star in a spin-off series that was canceled after four seasons. However, the show was brought back as Teen Mom OG last year for Season 5 and will debut Season 6 this month.
The show was so popular that MTV decided to to it again with Teen Mom 2 starring Chelsea Houska, Jenelle Evans, Leah Messer, and Kailyn Lowry. The show has become a favorite among reality TV fans.
The network tried to copy the success of the first two shows with Teen Mom 3, but the girls proved to not be as entertaining as the other casts, and the show was canceled after only one season.
The casting call reads as follows.
“MTV is casting for a new season of the thought-provoking documentary series Teen Mom. This series follows the journeys of strong-willed and opinionated women who faced an unexpected pregnancy as a teen and now, in their early 20’s, are navigating the difficulties of raising a child.
“Our goal is to give viewers a look inside the realities of motherhood — from balancing school and/or work responsibilities to navigating incredibly difficult decisions and relationships with boyfriends and parents.
“MTV is looking for mothers from varying backgrounds who had children in their late teens and those children are now between the ages of 4 and 7; who would like to share their dramatic personal stories about their complicated journeys.”
It seems that MTV is trying to evolve the Teen Mom franchise into an older age group while keeping their loyal viewers. Fans will likely tune in to see what the next generation has in store, but some are worried that their original favorites could be calling it quits on the network very soon, as most of the girls have either gotten engaged, married, and/or had second pregnancies.
