Family dynamics are changing!
Fan Teen mom OG or Teen mom 2 – the few of you left, by rating – can get something completely new Young mother series as the producers go to great lengths to save the franchise!
In a new report by Ashley’s Reality WheelBig changes can come MTV as producers consider ways to make the show more cost-effective while still increasing viewership. And their alleged big idea right now is to combine Teen mom OG and Teen mom 2 into a brand new series just introduced some of the women! OH!
OK, so what does all this really mean? Well, a source told the outlet on Wednesday:
“This is like their last attempt to keep the shows going.”
Although the franchise has been on the air for many years, Teen mom 2The premiere of its latest season drew just 459,000 live viewers, according to another report by the same outlet. Yeesh. It was the third worst view in the show’s history! Def isn’t a great look for anyone involved. Nothing has been confirmed yet, but executives are said to be discussing their options. The success and ease of filming Young mother Family gathering last year left those in charge “pleasantly surprised”, one source noted:
“Everybody is in one place, making costing, scheduling and COVID protocols much easier than going to girls’ houses.”
That seems to have prompted them to think more creatively about how they can continue to tell these women’s stories for free. But that could mean kicking off a few stars beyond TV for good! Sources told the magazine that, if the shows come together, it’s unlikely that all 10 members will continue their jobs. It is not yet clear who will be fired.
As expected, rumors have spread throughout the cast and crew – but not everyone is aware of the news:
“It circulated through the cast and crew but I don’t think it reached everyone.”
Along with a reduction in cast numbers, the style of the show may change so that not everyone is featured all the time. And this actually seems like a pretty clever way to approach things, the source explains:
“That way it will only include girls who really have something interesting going on in their lives at the moment.”
Sadly, it’s not just reality stars these days that their source of income is at risk. As the cast was cut, so did those who worked on the show, one source mused:
“There are just too many people working in this franchise and it’s not delivering the ratings and the money it used to.”
Oof. It was a difficult blow. It’s never easy to hear that many people can lose their jobs in the blink of an eye, especially after creating a hit that was once a huge hit.
If the crew had any chance to continue their work, the producers had to come up with a new angle for the series – and FAST. One source shared:
“They need to think of a way to keep the show going, but in a cheaper way. The salaries of the actors are huge and flying around the country to shoot the girls also costs a lot of money.”
Since they’re already breaking with tradition enough, the new format probably won’t include “Teen Mom” in the title. Why? Because these women are far from being a teen, the criticisms fans have shared for years! An insider revealed:
“These girls have not been underage for over a decade. It’s ridiculous that they’re still on a show called Teen Mom.”
LOL – League of Legends! Right! Continue talking:
“Fans have been saying it for years, so it’s likely [new] The show’s name won’t be ‘Teen Mom’, or at least, will be changed to better reflect their current situation. “
All that said, spin-off Teen Mom: Young & Pregnant seems to be moving forward with no problem. Sources told the magazine that they’re currently filming a new season of the show, and it’s unlikely those actors will join the potential new series. Of course, that doesn’t necessarily mean that their fate is protected in the future. If the two shows in the series are going downhill, we doubt they will either.
Thinking, longtime readers? Are you excited to see a big change like this? Or do you like? Young mother simply that?
