Since 2011, Teen Mom 2 has become just as popular as the original Teen Mom series, and while the stars certainly aren’t teens anymore, there is no end in sight for the popular MTV show. While things got a little confusing when Teen Mom 2 season 7 began airing in 2016 and then ran season 7B in early 2017, we are now heading into the eighth season! A lot might have changed over the past six years for Leah Messer, Chelsea Houska, Kailyn Lowry, and Jenelle Evans, but one thing that never ceases is the drama, and season eight is looking to be one of the most intense yet. With the new season premiering on July 17, 2017, here are 10 things to expect from season 8 of Teen Mom 2.
10. A New Teen Mom!
Season eight is going to be big for many reasons, but the show is literally getting bigger as a fifth Teen Mom has officially been added. Fans of the franchise might remember Briana DeJesus from the foruth season of 16 and Pregnant and the solo season of Teen Mom 3. Even though Teen Mom 3 only had one season, DeJesus has stayed in the headlines after her plastic surgery makeover and her many feuds with different Teen Mom stars including Jenelle Evans, and some interactions with Kailyn’s ex Javi. Despite early reports that the four original stars were not happy about the change, DeJesus stated, “They’re excited to have me on. All those rumors going around the internet are completely false, none of us are beefing.”
