Teen Mom: The Next Chapter promises plenty of drama among the cast, including rehab, surgeries, lawsuits, and engagements.
The moms from the Teen Mom franchise will continue to face reality as they share their storylines on the upcoming spinoff, The Next Chapter, premiering in just one week.
The casts of Teen Mom OG and Teen Mom 2 – both of which are no longer being filmed – will combine for The Next Chapter. Amber Portwood, Maci Bookout, Cheyenne Floyd, and Catelynn Baltierra will represent Teen Mom OG while Briana DeJesus, Ashley Jones, Jade Cline, and Leah Messer will represent Teen Mom 2.
As the premiere date approaches for the highly anticipated spinoff, MTV has provided a glimpse into the moms’ storylines for the show’s inaugural season.
Amber, one of the original cast members from the franchise, will continue to battle her mental health issues, specifically borderline personality disorder and bipolar diagnoses. In addition, Amber’s first baby daddy, Gary Shirley, will question whether her social media posts are in the best interest of their 13-year-old daughter, Leah. Amber losing custody of her son James will also play out this season, according to her bio on MTV’s website.
Ashley has a lot on her plate as well and viewers will watch as her husband, Bar Smith, checks himself into rehab, turning her world “upside down.” Ashley’s journey to nursing school will also play out this season, as well as a surprise move from California to Nevada for herself, Bar, and their daughter Holly.
