Mama June Shannon & Pumpkin Shannon Fight Over Custody of Alana in Trailer for Upcoming Season of ‘Mama June: Road to Redemption’

“This ‘Road to Redemption’ is a lot longer than I anticipated… “

Mama June Shannon and Co. are back for another season of Mama June: Road to Redemption– and yes, the ‘road’ is still rocky. 

In the newly released trailer for the upcoming season, the fractured family is seen adjusting–- and growing–-in the wake of June’s sobriety. Despite June making some progress to mend the relationship with her daughters, she will go head-to-head with daughter Lauryn “Pumpkin” Shannon this season over the custody of 15-year-old Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson. 

As viewers may remember, Alana began living with her sister shortly after her mom’s 2019 arrest for possession of crack cocaine. While June has ditched the drugs (and ex-boyfriend Geno Doak) Alana has continued to live with Pumpkin, Pumpkin’s husband, Josh Efird, and the couple’s two children– the youngest of whom will make his debut on the family’s show this season. 

“Alana is mine, and I can take her back anytime I want,” June says in the trailer.

“I’m her Mama now!” Pumpkin tells June.

Later, Alana, Josh and Pumpkin are shown seeking legal advice in preparation for a custody battle. 

“You better get ready for a fight!” Pumpkin later tells June.

“Um, you can take several seats, mama!”

While June wants to step back into Alana’s life as a full-time parent, it’s Josh who is seen grilling Alana’s new boyfriend in the new trailer. 

“I take it you’ve never seen this show before… “

“The one thing I ask [for] is respect, and that you treat her really, really good,” Josh says. “And if you don’t, then I’m just gonna break your neck.” 

“This is even more embarrassing than me and mama’s singing beachball performance on ‘The Masked Singer.'”

This season will also address June’s boyfriend, Jordan McCollum, and the rumor that June is actually the 24-year-old’s “sugar mama.” 

Sugar Mama June and her new man…

The new season of ‘Mama June: Road to Redemption’ premieres Friday, May 13, on WEtv.

Watch the trailer for the new season below!

  1. The custody battle is a fake story line for June because we all know given her history and Alana’s age, it’s a given June will never be awarded custody.
    As much as I hate to see June rewarded by being on this show so we can be exposed to lies and selfish manipulation I’m happy that it gives the others a source of income.

  2. Why all the haters coming after June bug? Geez let her get her daughter back and have a life. I’m not sure why Josh and Pumpkin are letting honey boo boo date, not to mention step outside. Step up June or Sugar bear and raise yo kid

    1. It’s not hate. It’s recognition that drugs or no drugs, June is still a selfish, unstable, manipulative, ignorant liar who puts her own wants ahead of her kids.

  3. They need to fire June and focus on the couple actually raising her child for her on top of her own. Pumpkin and Josh are doing why better then I could have done at their ages with that many kids.

  4. What truly angers me is that June has zero awareness nor seem to care that her statement of “I’m her mama and I’ll take her back when I want” screams that she doesn’t give a damn about Alana and she is only a prop for June. If she cared at all she would leave Alana in Lauren’s care and continue mending the relationships. Hopefully a judge tells June to essentially get bent.

    1. I have no clue why you got downvoted and I’m admittedly not a mom…but I’m with you. June isn’t a momma and a judge would laugh in her face. With her new sugar baby, living in another state, and with Alana looking much healthier these days with her sister and brother-in-law…good luck with that June! I had a daddy like June…and good judges can see through BS…that’s my experience.

  5. Mama June = WORST actress EVER!!!!!

    Seriously, they are grasping at straws for storyline over there.

    That WHOOOAAH will always pick a man or a drug before her kids. Trash bag for life.

    I give Pumpkin all the credit in the world(Her husband too!), for having a toddler, a new baby, pregnant with twins, a 16 yr old, and a mother who acts worse than any of them.

  6. Why is this piece of trash on tv still? She should of been dropped for life after getting back together with the man who molested her daughter…

  7. First she blamed her incapability of being a good mother on drugs. Then she got sober and has proven she still is incapable of being a good mother. She is disgustingly selfish, she never puts her kids first. She isn’t even living in the same state as her children. There is zero chance a judge will give Alana back to her.

  8. June doesn’t stand a chance getting her back. She 15 and can decide on her own where she wants to live. June proven she puts men before her kids hell sugarbear couldn’t even get her and he’s not on drugs and has semi stable life.

  9. Why can’t that old a** trailer trash open her eyes ugh her kids aren’t bad, but Mama June is just flat out gross. Snip snip that woman out of this show and save us all the headache.

  10. I hope Lauren can keep custody of her. It sounds like Alana has a much stable life with her sister and I’m sure she’s grown close to her cousins. I doubt June would be able to provide a consistent stable home for the next 3 years. 15 is a tough age and if Alana is happy then she should stay were she is.

    1. Lol June can’t guarantee stability for the next 3 days let alone 3 years.

      Alana needs to look into emancipation from June. I doubt any judge in the nation would deny it.
