After weeks of speculation online and from fans, MTV confirmed that it’s making changes within the Teen Mom franchise.
On Tuesday, the network announced once and for all that Teen Mom OG and Teen Mom 2 will merge into one show called Teen Mom: The Next Chapter.
The show will premiere in the near future, according to MTV, though a date has yet to be announced.
Viewers can still expect new seasons of Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant, Teen Mom Girls Night In, and Teen Mom: Family Reunion.
Per the description of the series, Teen Mom: The Next Chapter will focus on the casts of Teen Mom OG and Teen Mom 2 at their current “stages of motherhood.”
The network notes: “Some have kids in diapers, while others are now parenting teenagers!”
The description continues: “But they all share the unique experience of momming so young. For the first time, the moms and all their stories will be brought together in one supersized series that focuses on the unique bond they share as they face the reality of parenthood and adulting while entering new phases of life together.”
MTV has not yet confirmed the cast, though it was previously reported that the show will not star Kailyn Lowry or Mackenzie McKee.

MTV shared even more changes ahead for other shows as well.
The network announced a new The Hills reboot, The Hills: Next Gen according to Deadline.
The show will feature a brand new cast, which is says “is expected to be more diverse than the original.”
“The series will follow a close group of twentysomething friends and aspiring entrepreneurs who are coming of age in a very different L.A.,” the description reads.
“They will navigate the realities of race, class, identity, addiction, family drama along with the thrills of romance and becoming self-made amidst the exclusive enclave of the hills in Malibu.”
The Hills: Next Gen was created by Adam DiVello and executive produced by Liz Gateley and Sean Travis who worked on the original series.
Jersey Shore is also getting a facelift, according to ET Online.
More than a decade after the original show premiered, MTV is switching things up with an all new cast.
The show will be called Jersey Shore 2.0 and will see a whole new cast of roomies move into the shore house.
“It’s been 13 years since the iconic cast of Jersey Shore fist-pumped their way into our lives and stole our hearts,” the network revealed.
“Now, the time-honored tradition continues with a new group of roommates moving into their own Shore house. They may have traded their poofs for plumped pouts and UV rays for spray tans, but when things heat up in Jersey, the Shore is still the place to be to make memories all summer long.”
In 2009, Jersey Shore premiered on MTV.
The show starred Mike ‘The Situation’ Sorrentine, Nicole ‘Snooki’ Polizzi, Jenni ‘JWoww’ Farley, Sammi ‘Sweetheart’ Giancola, DJ Pauly D, Vinny Guadagnino, Angelina Pivarnick, and Ronnie Ortiz-Magro.
Deena Cortese joined the show after Angelina’s abrupt exit.
