With the second half of season 7 of Teen Mom OG kicking off on October 1, 2018, the popular MTV series has now nearly been around for a decade, and is still finding ways to keep things interesting. Although Maci, Amber and Catelynn are all in their mid to late twenties now, fans feel invested in their lives and stories after watching them become teen parents and navigate life as young moms. Teen Mom OG season 7B may be without a few of its longtime stars, but with new additions, and a whole bunch of new drama, it still promises to be just as good as seasons past. Here is everything to expect from season 7B:
12. No Ryan, Mackenzie, or Farrah
Mid-way through season 7A of Teen Mom OG, fans witnessed as Farrah exited the series following a tense conversation with the show’s producer Morgan Freeman. While it was well known that Farrah Abraham, who had been on the series since the very beginning, would not be returning to Teen Mom OG, it was months later that two more regular stars revealed they wouldn’t be on the show either. Ryan Edwards and his new wife Mackenzie had begun getting quite a bit of air time during each episode, but then in July, 2018 announced they had exited the show. “We’re not returning to Teen Mom this season. The network told us they don’t want to show Ryan as a recovering addict,” Standifer told E! News, claiming that MTV “did want to enter a contract with our unborn baby and have the baby film with Ryan’s parents so it would look like someone else is raising it.” While it was unclear whether they quit or were fired by MTV, they have stuck by their decision and have even slammed the show on social media since.
