MTV has no plans to put a stop to Teen Mom OG and Teen Mom 2; however, the same can’t be said for the show that started the franchise, 16 and Pregnant.
In a new interview with Sean Daly (who co-authored Teen Mom Confidential in 2013 with The Ashley), MTV’s new Executive of Original Content, Michael Klein, stated that the network has no plans on reviving ’16 and Pregnant,’ despite the fact that the network had been casting for a new season last year.
“We haven’t really looked at that, to be honest,” Michael Klein told The TV Page of ’16 and Pregnant,’ which last aired in 2014.
In early 2015, MTV Programming President Susanne Daniels stated that the network was planning to do a sixth season of the show, using a format similar to the ‘Teen Mom’ shows. It appears that those plans have fallen off since then.
It seems to be a different story with the ‘Teen Mom’ shows, however. Michael Klein told The TV Page that as long as fans want to see more of Jenelle, Farrah, Chelsea and the gang, MTV will keep slinging up more seasons of ‘Teen Mom OG’ and ‘Teen Mom 2.’
“There is a very devoted audience for those series,” he said. “As long as our audience is seeking it, we listen to our audience.”
There’s a lot more ‘Teen Mom’ on the way– ‘Teen Mom OG’ Season 6 premieres on August 22, and ‘Teen Mom 2′ Season 7B is currently being filmed.
