'19 Kids & Counting' Spinoff May Be In the Works
It looks like 19 Kids and Counting could be coming back on the air after all – but with a twist.
Instead of focusing on Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar, along with their children, the show would focus on newlyweds Jill and Derrick Dillard and Jessa and Ben Seewald. Both couples are young and starting families. Focus would be totally shifted from Josh and his family.
“The show had begun to focus more and more on the next generation of Duggars, anyway – mainly Jill and Jessa and their marriages and babies,” a source told People. “That’s when the show got its highest ratings.”
