Honey Boo Boo And Co. Will Return To Television To Make Us All A Little Dumber

Mama June promises the new show will be "real and unscripted."

Break out the Go Go juice because Honey Boo Boo is back. 

Former "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" star Mama June Shannon revealed on Sunday that her family will be returning to the small screen. In a post on her daughter Alana Thompson's (aka Honey Boo Boo) Facebook Page, Shannon announced that fans can expect the family back on television starting in December. 

The mother of four (Anna, Lauryn, Jessica and Alana) didn't give many details about the project, other than to say that the new reality show won't be like the family's previous TLC program. However, she did promise it will be "real and unscripted," which is the "only kind of TV [they] believe in."

While Shannon didn't reveal which network is responsible for the family's comeback, she noted that it will not be airing on TLC, which isn't surprising since the network canceled the series in October 2014 following allegations that Mama June was dating a convicted child molester named Mark McDaniel.


"Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" premiered in 2012 after Alana caught the world's attention on an episode of "Toddlers and Tiaras." 

Before its cancellation last year, the show was almost universally panned by critics. After its premiere, the AV Club dubbed it a "horror story posing as a reality television program," while The Hollywood Reporter described it as "peculiarly reprehensible."
