New Season of ‘Teen Mom OG’ Finally Gets a Premiere Date: Watch the New Season Trailer

When MTV FINALLY gives your show an airdate and you know you can put off getting a real job for another year…

The original Teen Mom girls are back, and, as per usual, MTV is promising plenty of tears, breakdowns and drama for Season 8B!

After literally months of delay, MTV has finally released the premiere date for the new season of Teen Mom OG. (The Ashley‘s sources tell her that pretty much everyone associated with the show– cast, crew, etc.– had no clue when the season would finally premiere until this week!)

‘Teen Mom OG’ Season 8B, featuring Maci BookoutAmber PortwoodCatelynn LowellCheyenne Floyd and (now permanent cast member) Mackenzie McKee, will premiere Tuesday, March 17.

MTV also released a new trailer for the season, showing a bit more of what we can expect to see. (The very first trailer was released back in December, but no air date was given at the time.) 

The Ashley will break down each girl’s story line, based only on what the new trailer reveals. (Of course, if you want to know some of the other stuff that will be covered in the new season, you can check out The Ashley’s recent “Teen Mom OG’ stories!

Maci Bookout: 

“Coming soon: Things That Matter glow necklaces!”

Maci is seen doing a radio interview (which was filmed back in September), celebrating her son Bentley’s birthday and telling us “I could help a lot of young women.” Her husband Taylor McKinney (clutching beer in a “Things That Matter” koozie, naturally) later tells her how proud he is of her. 

We do not get to know what Taylor is proud of Maci for…yet. (It could be that she managed to get Things That Matter worked into nearly every scene she’s in during Season 8B?) 

Maci’s baby daddy, Ryan Edwards, does not appear (or even get a mention) in this trailer. 

Mackenzie McKee:

“A divorce would ensure I don’t get ‘Jenelle-d’ next season…”

Her story line seems to focus on her separating from her husband, Josh McKee. Back in September, Mackenzie announced that she was planning to divorce Josh. (They ended up reuniting several months later.) 

In the trailer, Mackenzie tells someone, “I want this divorce.” 

She also explains that she wants to get back into the cheerleading industry…even though she’s now a 20-something mother of three.

Amber Portwood:

“I’m happy you’re doing better, Portwood, but just FYI, I’m wearing protective gear under my clothing. Safety first!”

Amber, who was a topic of discussion in the other trailer but did not appear, is front-and-center in the just-released trailer. We see her strolling proudly into court with ‘Teen Mom’ producer Larry Musnik as she says “Don’t f**kin’ play with me” in a voice-over. (We can assume that quote was meant for her estranged baby daddy, Andrew Glennon, whom she’s fighting in court, and not for poor Larry.) We also see Amber’s ‘Teen Mom’ co-stars walking into court with her.

In another clip, Amber and her other baby daddy Gary Shirley, are shown dropping their daughter Leah off for her first day of school. 

Catelynn Lowell: 

“I’ll love ya even if you grow a salt-n-pepper mullet like your dad someday!”

It wouldn’t be a season of a ‘Teen Mom’ show if there weren’t some exotic vacations added into the mix. Cate and her husband Tyler Baltierra head to Hawaii, where they appear to renew their vows in an outdoor ceremony.

Tyler– sounding very much like his mother-in-law April– tells Cate in one scene, “I love ya!” 

Cheyenne Floyd: 

“I may have lost the hair extensions, but I still have my sheer thong bathing suit!”

Chey has chopped off her extensions and is now working a fresh bob. She tells us that she wants to start an event-planning company. She appears to be looking at spaces to put her new idea into motion. 

Absent from this trailer is Cheyenne’s baby daddy, Cory Wharton, who is currently expecting a baby with his girlfriend Taylor Selfridge. 

We also see several shots of Maci, Catelynn, Amber and Cheyenne hanging out together. (Apparently Mackenzie’s invite got lost in the mail?) We see them group-hugging, and later driving around and screaming like it’s Fourth of July and Amber has just shown up with her machete. (Too soon?)

Anyway, the new season of ‘Teen Mom OG’ premieres Tuesday, March 17 on MTV. Watch the new trailer below!

      I love this show can’t wait to see it on March 27!!! I have watched it ever since it started!!


  1. Nope, I gave up on watching this show when it was clear Amber wouldn’t be fired. I’ll just get my TM fix through the Feathers in My Hair and WALTHTM podcasts instead.

    After watching this trailer I really think l’d rather watch paint dry.


      1. lol I don’t want the show to be cancelled. The TM shows are a guilty pleasure of mine, plus I’ve been watching since 16 and pregnant and I like seeing the kids grow up…however I’m all for replacing entitled cast members. I don’t miss Jenelle and I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t miss Amber if MTV would’ve gotten rid of her too.


  3. I will absolutely 100% not be watching these train wrecks anymore! I’m disgusted with all of them and MTV. I wonder if Amber punched Gary in the face like she did Andrew when she put her “I’m such a great mom, everyone look at me and how much I love my kids by taking then to a first day of school” face. I got news for all of these moms….you aren’t a good mother at your convenience, when the cameras are rolling or when it benefits you. A good mom loves their children unconditionally, puts their needs above their own, is a mom 24hrs a day-365 days a year! Ugh…these people

    I love teen mom. I am disappointed that Amber didnt get fired. The home videos clearly show she was abusive to Andrew. This show must support domestic violence. Amber has serious mental issues and is a compulsive liar. Shame on MTV for not firing her.


  5. Let’s all say it together: “Jumped the Shark!” There’s nothing remotely close to real about the lives of these not-teens and as far as I’m concerned the novelty is long gone. Undeserved opportunities, exotic vacations, never any legal ramifications, I’m over it. The only interesting thing is seeing how much the kids have grown.

    I refuse to watch this show, they are no longer Teen Moms, they are stupid women who never achieved anything in life other than felonies, drug addiction alcoholism and the likes. They’re close to the age of going to their 20th class reunion, but none of them graduated. When is MTV going to cut the last check for all trailer park beauties??? MTV it’s over!!! Wake up Larry, you piece of shit!! I heard Larry is dating Amber PORTWOOD, that’s why it’s coming back. Yuck!!

    1. Because she’s desperately trying to hold onto something she knows is dead. In the immortal words of Vicki Gunvalson “once you renew your vows on tv, the marriage is over.”


    1. I will never again watch this show since they allow an abusive monster to stay on there. If it was a man beating these women they would have been fired. MTV is just as bad for enabling this. Especially with all the proof of the abuse.


    2. I was honestly wondering the same thing. She’s not even entertaining and she doesn’t have a good story line. All she does is sit on the couch and cry about how “horrible” her life is, and I don’t want to see her spin or try to justify chasing Andrew around with a machete. I bet you all she’s gonna do this season is try to turn herself into the victim, and refuse to film certain things.


  8. they are all losers, they have from day one been losers and ten plus years they are worse losers. Can’t wait until this garbage gets cancelled.


  9. Ugh. When you think this show can’t get any boring. If The Ashley does recaps I’m not even gonna watch it just read them.
