Teen Mom is a reality series on MTV that began airing in 2009.
After the success of 16 & Pregnant, which followed teenage girls as they became parents, four cast members were chosen to continue on with the documentation of their lives on its spinoff, Teen Mom. Those four girls were Amber Portwood, Farrah Abraham, Maci Bookout, and Catelynn Lowell, who chose adoption. Although the series came to an end in 2012 as Portwood began serving a prison term, it was brought back to MTV years later and renamed Teen Mom OG. A sixth season of the reality series, which also shows the fathers of the girls” children, aired in 2016.
