The Duggar family returns to streaming TV in late 2022 or 2023 on Amazon Prime Video. The news comes after Josh Duggar’s conviction for possession of child porn. Naturally, not everyone in the USA watched 19 Kids and Counting and Counting On on TLC. So, probably, there’s a lot of interest in the upcoming docuseries. After all, Josh pushed the family even further into the headlines with the shocking details of his internet downloads. The Plaths of Welcome to Plathville also feature in the new show.
Duggar Family Rumor Of New TV Show
TLC fans speculated that it wouldn’t take long for Jim Bob to land another television series. Actually, rumors went around that the wife of Josh Duggar, Anna, might land something with a network. However, it’s unlikely that the upcoming docuseries on Amazon will paint him and his family in a good light. With Josh in prison awaiting sentencing, it’s unlikely that any documentary will blow his trumpet for him. In fact, so far, even UPTV that profiles religious families like Bates doesn’t seem to have snapped the family up for anything.
Duggar family critics didn’t expect that Jim Bob would do well with his campaign for a vacant Senate seat in Arkansas. In fact, he lost in the primaries, indicating that people don’t like the association of Josh with day-to-day politics. Jim isn’t new to politics, and neither is Josh. If you don’t know, he was captured in photos involving people Sen. Marco Rubio and Sen. Ted Cruz. Actually, the docuseries might touch on that. Variety reported that it looks at “connections between some of reality television’s most famous large families and The Institute in Basic Life Principles.” Additionally, it examines “reality television, social media, faith, fundamentalism, patriarchy, and power.”
Duggar Family And The Institute In Basic Life Principles
When Josh Duggar molested his younger sisters in the early 2000s, Jim Bob sent his son to Little Rock. The place is operated by the Institute in Basic Life Principles. Actually, many TLC fans felt that by doing so, the problem was simply swept under the carpet. Others feel that if he received effective counseling, he might never have devastated his wife by engaging in porn online. Meanwhile, it’s not clear that the Plath family from Welcome to Palthville are actually associated with the institute. Katie Joy of Without A Crystal Ball noted on Instagram “The Plath family is not involved with the IBLP so not sure why they would be featured outside of their show.”
Followers of the Duggar Family news commented about the new docuseries. One of them wrote, “Maybe it’s not a favorable docuseries.” Well, it might not be. Amazon Studios previously collaborated for the LuLaRich docuseries. One critic noted, “Yes! This is what I’ve been hoping for. That a large outlet would expose the cult. Jim Bob is not going to be happy about this.🤣.”
Bates Family Also Features
While the Duggar family is in the docuseries, the Bates from Bringing Up Bates also feature alongside The Plaths of Welcome to Plathville. Of the three shows, TLC aired two of them: Counting On and Welcome to Plathville.
