There’s another baby boom at MTV: 16 and Pregnant, which last aired in 2014, will return for a reimagined six-episode season on Tuesday, Oct. 6 at 9/8c.
The new take on the popular docuseries follows “the unexpected pregnancy journey from multiple perspectives, not just from the young mother,” per MTV’s release. “Intimate video confessionals from members of each family will allow the series to more substantively explore the lives of those impacted by the experience, with honesty and empathy.” Watch a promo above.
16 and Pregnant first launched in 2009 and later gave birth to several spinoffs, including Teen Mom OG, Teen Mom 2 and Teen Mom: Young + Pregnant.
