Duggar family fans were sad to see that their show, Counting On, was canceled after Josh’s arrest in April. This is the second time that TLC has canceled one of the family’s shows. Their previous series, 19 Kids & Counting, also used to air on the network.
For those who don’t know, Josh, Jim Bob and Michelle’s eldest child was arrested for the receipt and possession of child pornography. After that, TLC revealed that they would be canceling the family’s show. They released a statement, reading, “TLC feels it is important to give the Duggar family the opportunity to address their situation privately.”
Since then, fans have been hoping that another network will pick up the family’s story. However, this hasn’t happened yet. Fans are worried that the family will not get another show, and then fans won’t have a way to keep up with them.
Could UPtv pick up where TLC left off?
Some fans of the Duggar family also like the Bates family. For those who don’t know, Gil and Kelly Jo Bates also have 19 children and are similar to the Duggars. The Bates’ show, Bringing Up Bates is on UPtv. UPtv focuses on uplifting content. The programs on the channel are family-friendly and religious. While the Duggar family claimed to be Christians and their show offered family-friendly entertainment, Josh’s scandals don’t have the same message. So, that may ruin the family’s chances of moving over to UPtv.
Might the Duggar family have another show?
It’s possible that a network could choose to pick up the Duggar family and create a new series. However, it may be difficult to find a network willing to do so. While the Duggars are well-loved and very popular, they have recently gotten a ton of negative attention over Josh’s alleged crimes. If it was so bad that TLC decided to cancel Counting On, another network may not be eager to sign a deal with the family.
So, fans will have to wait and see what happens. It’s possible that the outcome of Josh’s November 30 trial will play a role in determining whether the family gets a new show. With the show’s cancelation, several members of the family have found new ways to make money. Jessa Seewald and Jill Dillard have successful YouTube channels. Jinger and Jeremy Vuolo wrote a book. Abbie Duggar is selling secondhand clothing. So, they may not be interested in starting a new show.
So, do you think the Duggar family should get a chance at another TV show? Or do you think Josh Duggar has ruined the family’s reputation too badly at this point? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
