‘Teen Mom 2’ Season 8 to Premiere This Summer: Get Details on the Upcoming Season!

“We’re bringing the heat this summer!”

Mark your calendars! There will be more Teen Mom 2 hi-jinks coming our way this summer!

MTV announced on Monday that Kail LowryJenelle EvansChelsea Houska and Leah Messer will soon be back on our TV screens for the eighth season of ‘Teen Mom 2!’ The new episodes– which, for the first time ever will feature former Teen Mom 3 star Briana DeJesus— will premiere Monday, July 17.

What can we expect to see from the girls this season? Here, The Ashley gives you a run-down of what we will–and will not–see on ‘Teen Mom 2’ Season 8!

Jenelle Evans: The biggest storyline for Jenelle will be her engagement. Naturally, MTV cameras were ever-present as Jenelle’s current soulmate, David Eason, proposed back in February. The new season will also show Jenelle planning her wedding (which The Ashley will have more details on very soon!), and working on building her house. Of course, Jenelle’s big court battle with her mom, Barbara, for Jenelle’s son Jace, will play a big part in the new season as well. Oh yeah…and Jenelle had another kid who will make her debut this season.

Kail Lowry: Obviously, Kail’s big storyline for Season 8 will be her pregnancy. Kail is about to give birth to her third child, but Season 8 will give viewers a bit more background on the pregnancy. One thing we won’t be seeing on Season 8 is Chris Lopez, the father of Kail’s unborn child. The Ashley’s insiders tell her that Chris refused to sign the release forms to appear on ‘Teen Mom 2’ (despite a valiant effort from the show’s higher-ups to get him to participate.)

Kail’s nasty battle with her ex-husband, Javi Marroquin, will also be part of the new season. As The Ashley reported back in March, MTV cameras were swarming when Kail went to court and filed a PFA (Protection From Abuse) order against Javi.

In addition, Kail’s college graduation will also be featured. However, it’s likely that the graduation will be more of an after-thought (as per usual with this show), and the dramatic stuff will be shown more prominently, despite Kail’s best efforts to get MTV to highlight the positive event in her life.

Chelsea Houska: Baby Watson, Chelsea’s son, will make his debut on ‘Teen Mom 2’ Season 8 (although we won’t be getting any 16 and Pregnant-style delivery room footage this time around). As per usual, Chelsea’s segments will be littered with mentions of her daughter’s father, Adam Lind.

While Adam will be a frequent topic (due to his recent failed drug tests, etc.), he will not be appearing on Season 8. Last season, Adam was very outspoken about quitting the show and The Ashley’s sources tell her that he has kept his promise. Adam has yet to film any scenes for Season 8, although he has had plenty of opportunities, and has even cancelled on the producers and film crew numerous times when they showed up to film with him.

Leah Messer: Leah’s kept a relatively low profile over the last six months or so, but from what The Ashley hears, much of her footage will cover her trying to build her life coaching business. Although Leah’s ex-husband, Jeremy Calvert, had been adamant that he would no longer appear on ‘Teen Mom 2,’ he recently told The Ashley that he did eventually agree to appear on Season 8, after MTV upped his pay. Leah’s return to college will also be a topic of her segments this season.

  1. Can’t we just rename the show “Four Former Teenage Moms with 11 Kids by 10 Different Men?”

    It’s so gross. I can’t stand to watch the shows anymore, I just read The Ashley’s recaps!


  2. I just saw some pictures from this so called coaching lessons. It was eigth people (and a bunch of kids in a ratty rstaurant) so i guess is not going great so far.


  3. Jenelle: “I’m getting married to my soulmate!” Yeah, for the sixth time in a row. Also: “Barbara, give me Jace back even tho I keep on having baby after baby without considering!”

    Kail: “I’m high risk but I go on vacations because I can!” And “My ex _____ is a total douche!”

    Chelsea: “I’m married, have a child with my husband, I have my life together so that’s why they want to replace me.” And “Adam still sucks.”

    Leah: “Hey, I want to be a life coach because which girl was married two times, was high on drugs and dated her drug dealer?! MEEEEEEEE!” “But actually my life is pretty boring now, let’s up my ex’s pay to bring the drama!”


  4. of course we will see janelles engagement I’m sure mtv paid for the ring and trip again the ring that looks a lot like Chelsea’s. Of course she is going to be certified scuba instructor for all her vacations but she wanted jace right how could she go on a vacation every other week with a kid in school? go away janelle know one cares


  5. I’m done with this show.

    The commercial focused on some strange girl from 16 & Pregnant, than the girls from the show. She seems cheap, low class, and stupid…which is hilarious considering the rest of the cast consists of two girls who have three baby daddy’s, and a twice divorced, drug addicted, moron…

    No thanks.


  6. Why on earth would they up Jeremy’s pay? After his behavior, I’d pay to keep him off my screen.


    1. Chelsea was never quiting the show. It was a rumour despite her even saying she had to cover up while nursing Watson. She likes the show just as much as the other girls, let’s be honest. It’s easy money for her because the producers have agreed to show basically nothing for her segments


      1. I’m not so sure. I wouldn’t be surprised if they’re adding Briana while Chelsea’s still around to ease fans into her departure in the future (however soon). There’s absolutely no reason to add a 5th girl otherwise. It’s not like people care or asked for it.


  7. LOL Leah wants to be a life coach. She should try to fix her life before helping people fix theirs. She been divorced twice, 3 kids by two different fathers, went to rehab, doesn’t clean her home, doesn’t cook, doesn’t have a job, has dropped out of school how many times, has moved in multiple men after her divorces, serious who would take advice from her???


  8. “My first life lesson for y’all is, your baby girlses can’t eat canned frosting for supper. Don’t listen to your mama y’all! Frostin’ ain’t a meal. Not even if you make em set a table. Ya gots to add some coffee! “


    1. Maybe Gary could become a personal trainer. Adam could teach Driver’s Ed. Jenelle could open a day care center.


    2. @Lynn right The Ashley just glossed over it like it was no big thing! meanwhile my mouth is on the floor and I can’t stop laughing like what actual hell no offense to Felicia but I think I would look elsewhere to get my life on track needed


  9. LMFAO. Leah as a life coach. That’s a bigger joke than Jenelle thinking she’s going to get custody of Jace.


  10. HOLD.UP. LEAH thinks she’s going to be a Life Coach? LEAH? LEAH MESSER SIMMS CALVERT MESSER? FROM TEEN MOM 2? This is officially the most insane thing I’ve ever heard in my entire life. I don’t know whether to laugh uncontrollably or gasp in horror.


  11. TheAshley, please don’t leave out the most important character–will Nathan’s cutoff shirts be filming?! Or did he/they move to the U.K. ?
