Teen Mom 2 Season 8: 10 Things To Expect
8. Different Formats
Many longtime Teen Mom 2 fans were not happy about the addition of the fifth star, and things got worse when it seemed that the four original women would get less screen time. Kailyn Lowry responded to one Twitter user who asked if they were extending the time of the show or if the stars would just get less time, saying, “We will get shorter time. Around 5 mins each.” While that is true, it has since been revealed that the format will still be a 42 minute episode each week (without commercials) which means each of them will get 8 minutes of screen time per episode, but to make up for it the season will include three additional episodes. MTV stated that by adding the fifth mom, they will not be compromising anyone’s story and with three extra episodes everyone’s story will get told “one way or another.”
7. Jenelle’s New Life
The one minute promo for the new season gave fans a glimpse of what to expect and for once things look positive for Jenelle Evans. For seven seasons Jenelle’s life has been one of the most dramatic and intense, but this season we are expecting a lot of positive moments for the star who is now mom to Jace, Kaiser and Ensley. It looks like MTV cameras were there for David’s romantic proposal, and after buying their secluded property in the woods last season, we will finally see the finished house and their new life together in their brand new home! Of course, along with an engagement comes wedding planning and since we now know that the pair are getting married on September 23, 2017, fans can also expect to see Jenelle wedding dress shopping and getting ready for the big day.
