After a nearly two year hiatus, Jen Arnold and Bill Klein have shared the news that nearly all fans have been waiting for — The Little Couple is finally returning!
The show is slated to return to TLC on Sept. 19 — and there are already big changes in the works!
In an announcement about the show’s return, it was also revealed that the beloved family is moving from their hometown in Houston to Florida, as Jen Arnold — who works in a specialty field of neonatology — has accepted a new position at a new hospital.
The new season promises lots of travel and adventure, as they family navigates their first international trip together and the couple’s children, Zoey and Will, take on more and more independence.
The show was on hold due to disputes between the network’s parent companym Discovery, and the show’s production company, LMNO.
Back in June of last year, LMNO filed a $7 million breach-of-contract and copyright infringement lawsuit against Discovery — in which they accused the network giant of conspiring with a “criminal extortionist” in order to edge LMNO out of six of its shows, including The Little Couple.
In the past year, Jen and Bill hinted at a possible return many times, and was even spotted filming on occasion — though this marks the official confirmation of the show’s return.
“I’m thrilled to return home to Florida,” Jen said in a press release from the hospital, explaining that she has family near St. Petersburg, where her family will be living. “The opportunity at Johns Hopkins All Children’s is a perfect fit personally for me, my husband, and two kids and professionally with the growing education and research resources at the hospital.”
Is it Sept. 19 yet?!
