Mama June Shannon and Co. will return in February with a new season of Mama June: Family Crisis–- a season that will follow the family as they face their “toughest battle yet.”
June took to social media a few days ago to announce the preview for the upcoming season, telling viewers she and her family “never stopped filming” and will soon be able to share what they’ve been going through over the last 10 months.
As The Ashley recently told you, June’s oldest daughter, Anna “Chickadee” Cardwell, passed away earlier this month after a nearly year-long battle with Stage 4 cancer. She was only 29 years old.
Anna reportedly wanted her fight against adrenal carcinoma documented for her family’s reality show, so she allowed a WEtv crew to film her final days.
“This will definitely be the most-hardest season that we have ever had to watch as we are going to share a lot of Anna’s cancer battle with y’all … ,” June told social media followers last week.
In the preview for the upcoming season, Anna’s sister Lauren “Pumpkin” Shannon gives viewers an update on Anna’s health, revealing her sister’s “cancer is very aggressive.”
We then see Anna herself express to her sister Jessica Shannon that she doesn’t want “any more stress” in her life.
While Anna’s cancer battle will undoubtedly be the main focus in the upcoming season, viewers will also watch as Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson graduates from high school, only to be faced with a decision that may put her college scholarship in jeopardy.
“I’m not gonna let you f**k up Alana’s life,” Lauryn tells Alana’s boyfriend, Dralin Carswell.
“If I don’t decide, my scholarship is basically up,” Alana says to Dralin later in the clip.
The new season of ‘Mama June: Family Crisis’ is set to premiere in February on WEtv and ALLBLK. Watch the first look below.
