‘Counting On’ is TLC’s reality series that has built on the channel’s inclination toward documenting the lives of massive, multi-generational families. In this case, the highlighted clan is the Duggars. Created as a spin-off to ’19 Kids and Counting’, it follows the couple Bill Bob and Michelle and their 19 children + 18 grandchildren. Of course, we also get to meet the better halves of the 19 siblings. Featuring happy highs, tragic losses, and simple everyday moments, the Duggars have managed to keep fans involved in their journey. Therefore, the sweet show, since its premiere in 2015, has been quickly renewed several times — spawning 11 seasons to date. Let us now take you through the details of its next outing.
Counting On Season 12 Release Date:
‘Counting On’ season 11 premiered on July 7, 2020, on TLC. It ended with its 12th episode on September 22, 2020. The finale ends with several pleasant reveals and surprises, which serve as fodder for a new season. Moreover, we do know that in real-time, the fam has achieved multiple new milestones — that can be documented on tv screens in the future. And noting the love of fans for the Duggars, we believe TLC has long-term plans for the show. News of a renewal should reach us in the coming months. If given a go-ahead soon, we can expect ‘Counting On’ season 12 to premiere sometime in early 2021.
