As rumored, the Duggars are returning to TLC with a series of specials following two of the family’s daughters, Jessa Seewald and Jill Dillard. The specials will go into production shortly, and start airing before the end of the year. TLC’s Nancy Daniels tells the Associated Press the show will focus on Jessa’s pregnancy and Jill’s move to Central America. The specials will reportedly not include Jill and Jessa’s brother Josh Duggar, whose decade-old molestation confession led to TLC’s cancellation of the Duggar family’s long-running reality show 19 Kids and Counting this summer. In June, Jill and Jessa were revealed as two of Josh’s victims; afterward, the pair defended their brother in the press, telling Megyn Kelly that Josh “made some bad choices, but really, the extent of it was mild.” Last month, the pair appeared in Breaking the Silence, TLC’s special on child sex abuse.
