Since word of Josh Duggar’s arrest went public, some fans and critics have been calling for the cancellation of Counting On. At this point, it’s unclear whether the show will return to TLC for another season. But fans have been waiting for a response from the network for months. Derick Dillard is now showing his support for the cancellation of Counting On.
As we previously reported, it’s possible that TLC knew about Josh’s arrest before it happened. This could explain why the show hasn’t been renewed yet. Now, a petition is going around, urging TLC to remove all traces of the Duggar family from the network. In a statement following Josh’s arrest, the network reminded everyone that Josh hasn’t been on the show and that 19 Kids & Counting was previously canceled over a previous scandal in 2015. Though he isn’t on the show, Anna and the kids are sometimes a part of it. Plus, the rest of the Duggar family is still on TLC.
While most of the people calling for the show’s cancelation are fans and critics of the family, one family member wants the show off the air.
