Teen Mom OG is the revival series based on the MTV original series Teen Mom, which premiered in 2009 and concluded in 2012. After several years off air, MTV decided to resurrect the Teen Mom series, renaming it Teen Mom OG, as the revival series followed the original 2009 cast.The original series featured the lives of four women who became pregnant at 16 years old and the trials of their first year of motherhood. Teen Mom OG follows the lives of Farrah Abraham, Maci Bookout, Catelynn Lowell, and Amber Portwood. Since the original series, the lives of the cast have been turbulent, and fodder for the tabloids. Abraham in particular gained attention for her sex tape, Farrah Superstar: Backdoor Teen Mom. She has also released a New York Times best-selling memoir.
