Get ready for TLC Duggars specials coming your way by the end of the year. The specials will star Duggar sisters, Jill and Jessa, but don’t expect to see Josh Duggar on TLC again.

While the shows all remain untitled, at least one of the Duggar daughter specials, is expected to air by the end of the year. Two or three are planned, the network said.

“What we will be following in these specials is Jessa preparing for her first child,” TLC General Manager Nancy Daniels told The Associated Press, “and we’ll be watching Jill preparing to make a major move to Central America with her family, which we know is something our audience will be interested in.” 

One of the specials will feature Jill Dillard, 24, who, with her husband, Derick, and their infant son are preparing to move to El Salvador for missionary work, and sister Jessa Seewald, 22, who with her husband Ben is expecting their first child in November.

The network moved fast to set up the specials now that the daughters are embarking on major changes. The specials could end up attracting the same high number of viewers who made the Duggar family’s reality show, 19 Kids and Counting, such a big success for TLC. 


19 Kids and Counting was officially canceled by TLC stemming from revelations of sexual misconduct by Josh Duggar in July.
