Duggar fans know that Jill and Derick Dillard are no longer a part of TLC’s Counting On. There’s been a lot of drama between Jim Bob Duggar and Derick. Derick often claims that he and Jill weren’t fairly compensated for appearing on the show.
And, Derick even says that Jim Bob is the only one who has a contract with the network. Supposedly, Jim Bob doles out paychecks to the kids as he pleases. Derick has also revealed that it’s unclear whether the other family members ever received payment from Jim Bob.
Also, Derick says that he wasn’t allowed to talk to TLC about payment. So, it seems like it’s all in Jim Bob’s control.
Derick Dillard talks returning to the show
Derick and Jill were cut from the Counting On when Derick sent out offensive tweets. He directed these tweets at Jazz Jennings, who stars in TLC’s I Am Jazz.
Since the couple left the show, Duggar fans have been wondering if the couple will ever come back. Right now, fans are just keeping up with them via social media. While this works, some fans wish they could see them back on TV. So, it’s no surprise that Derick is talking about returning to the show.
In an exclusive interview with The Sun, Derick talks about the possibility of himself and Jill returning to TLC. He says, “We would only consider doing filming if we had a say in the terms of our arrangement.”
Based on what Derick has revealed about Jim Bob, it doesn’t seem likely that the couple will return to TLC. It sounds like Jim Bob wouldn’t be willing to give them enough control This would leave Jill and Derick with little to no compensation for being on the show.
Counting On will return to TLC
The Duggar family will return to TLC very soon. Unfortunately, the Season 11 premiere is pushed back by one week. So, instead of airing on Tuesday, June 30, it will air on Tuesday, July 7.
In addition to Jill and Derick, other family members are missing from the new season. As usual, Josh and Anna Duggar are not on the show. This season, Joy and Austin Forsyth are skipping the show. It’s unclear what is causing this. But, they are not in any of the promo photos or videos. Fans can still see the couple in group settings on the show.
