If you’ve been jonesing to watch Kate Gosselin treat her kids poorly on camera, you’re in luck! TLC, the network behind the Gosselin family’s reality show Kate Plus Eight has announced that it has picked the show up for a brand-new season! The show, which has been on hiatus since 2011, will feature Kate and her eight investments children: 13-year-old twins Mady and Cara and 10-year-old sextuplets Alexis, Joel, Leah, Hannah, Aaden, and Collin.
According to a press release distributed by TLC yesterday, the new episodes are set to air in December and will follow the kids and Kate on a vacation to New England. (Hey, Katie ain’t gonna miss out on a free trip!)
The new episodes will also focus on the kids’ schooling. The twins are about to start eighth grade while the sextuplets are entering fourth grade.
“The kids [will] prepare for new teachers and hobbies, while balancing their time between friends and siblings,” the press release says.
A ‘Kate Plus Eight’ special that aired in June averaged more than 2.1 million viewers, which may be the reason the network has regained interest in the show. The Ashley finds it odd that so many people are still interested in Kate, especially after the extremely cringe-worthy interview she and her twins gave to the Today Show back in January, in which Kate basically demanded the twins tell everyone how great things are at home. The twins, in an act of rebellion, refused to speak. The Ashley loved every minute of it!
