There have been several rumors floating around that the fourth season of Teen Mom 2 which will air sometime later this year will be the series’ last, but yesterday, MTV released a statement which explained that they have yet to make a decision on whether or not the series will be cancelled. And now, new details are arising about the possibilities of a fifth (and even sixth!) season.
MTV wrapped filming on the fourth season of Teen Mom 2, as well as the reunion and after shows, back in November of last year. So, if that were really going to be the last season, the girls wouldn’t be be filming anything at all which would means they would no longer be under contract and therefore they’d be free to talk about whatever they please. In other words, if there was a huge announcement in their life, say a marriage or pregnancy, they’d be able to reveal that information to the press.
However, there have been marriages and pregnancies and the girls haven’t been the ones to reveal them. For example, when Jenelle Evans and her husband Courtland Rogers got married, Courtland was the one who gave the information to Radar Online for the story, and the same went for their pregnancy. And when Leah Messer-Calvert’s pregnancy was revealed to Us Weekly, it was her husband Jeremy who officially announced the news.
Since all three of those announcements were made post-filming, it seems clear that these girls are still under contract with MTV. However, no one really seems to be filming at the moment, except for Leah who was thrown a super private baby shower over the weekend. Leah went above and beyond to be sure that no photos of the event were leaked online. So could this mean that filming on season 5 may have just begun? Why else wouldn’t Leah (or any of her friends and family) been allowed to post photos online?
And if all this isn’t quite enough for ya, rumor has it that the girls have actually be signed on to do six seasons of the series so there may be much more Teen Mom 2 on the way!
