TLC TO RING IN NEW YEAR WITH ALL NEW EPISODES OF “HERE COMES HONEY BOO BOO”
–The network orders twelve episodes and three specials, premiering on Wednesday, January 1 at 9 PM ET/PT–
(NEW YORK, NY) – 3.2 million viewers celebrated the camouflaged commitment ceremony of Mama June and Sugar Bear, making it the most-watched episode in the series’ history. On Wednesday, January 1 at 9 PM ET/PT, TLC’s ALL NEW NEW YEAR will kick off the return of HERE COMES HONEY BOO BOO with an unconventional honeymoon that is sure to start fireworks.
Now that the stresses of wedding planning have dissipated, it’s time for June to ditch the bedazzled Keds and welcome back the familiar sights and sounds of rural McIntyre, GA. What better way to relax and unwind than with a romantic Southern getaway with Sugar Bear? Not in the world of Boo Boo! With the kids out of school for summer, the family is forced to spend every moment together…for better or for worse. The result: an unpredictable and bizarre family road trip that will go down in reality television history.
“The world continues to be fascinated by the Boo Boo gang and their crazy hijinks,” said Howard Lee, executive vice president of production and development for TLC. “As Alana gets older, the dynamic between her parents and sisters is changing. Viewers can look forward to seeing a different side of the family as they embark on this exciting new chapter of their lives.”
HERE COMES HONEY BOO BOO is produced by Authentic Entertainment for TLC.
