Following the huge success of season 2 of MTV’s Teen Mom, the NYPost is reporting that a third season is already in the works.
According to the Post, the show has averaged 2.8 million viewers per episode for MTV this season, while also bringing in young female viewers for the network. In fact, the finale episode last week brought in over 6 million viewers for MTV.
So what does this mean? It means we can expect a whole lot more from these popular teen mothers. MTV has reportedly already began filming season 3, and was on hand to film Amber Portwood and ex-fiance Gary Shirley’s recent visit to a Tennessee waterpark.
And though the all new season of 16 and Pregnant doesn’t kick off until Oct. 26, the MTV network has reportedly already handpicked a few of the girls from the upcoming season to appear on their own Teen Mom spinoff. “We’re always exploring new production ideas, but can’t confirm anything at this time,” said an MTV spokeswoman of the news.
Moving on to last night’s 2 hour reunion episode which brought us an emotional break-down by each of the teenage moms. Farrah Abraham broke down when discussing her mom’s abusive behavior towards her while her mom Debra Danielson also broke down telling her daughter she loved her in spite of everything that has taken place.
The biggest breakdown came from Amber, who revealed she also grew up witnessing abusive behavior by her mother. Dr. Drew Pinsky then explained to her that she was continuing the cycle of domestic violence by hitting Gary. Amber claimed she didn’t remember attacking Gary and cried as she admitted she’s is uncertain about what direction to go in her life.
