Little People, Big World are reeling right about now.
On Tuesday afternoon, Jeremy Roloff made an announcement that took fans of this TLC franchise by surprise:
He and wife Audrey Roloff will leave the series after this upcoming season.
“It has been an amazing run, and I can’t say thank you enough to all of you who have watched and supported us along the ride,” wrote Jeremy on Instagram, explaining that he and Audrey made the choice to depart about a year ago.
Roloff did say something positive in his heartfelt post, at least:
“We will still be supporting the family as they carry the #LPBW torch onward. This is a decision concerning Audrey and me specifically – the show must go on!”
Will he go on past this season?
And, if so, which family members will be a part of Little People, Big World?
TLC is yet to provide an answer to the first question, but Tori and Zach Roloff has now provided an answer to the second — and it can be summed up by the photo below.
“We’re not going anywhere!” Tori announced on her Instagram Story, prior to engaging with fans and responding to some of their inquiries.
“Will Z & T be staying with LPBW?” one user asked.
“YAS! And J too,” Tori replied, referring to the pair’s son Jackson, whom they welcomed in May 2017.
Elsewhere, a fan asked why the couple has chosen to remain on the show after getting married; sort of an odd question, but one Tori responded to anyway:
“Because we feel like we’re not done telling our story.”
Tori later said that her favorite part of filming is “getting to share our story with our fans.”
TLC has not yet announced whether or not it will bring Little People, Big World back for another season.
We’ve had our doubts of late because Matt Roloff is moving to Arizona and Amy Roloff has expressed some doubt about remaining on the farm.
Zach and Tori, however, have simply been enjoying life as parents for about a year now and recently moved into a new home, one close to the family farm.
They aren’t going anywhere.
The same can’t be said for Jeremy and Audrey, however.
“We’re not disappearing,” Jeremy assured fans in his statement. “We have a lot of exciting stuff in the works and are eager to continue the world that the Lord has called us to!”
The cable network has now released a statement of its own, confirming that the show WILL be back in 2019!
“We wish Jeremy, Audrey, and Ember the best, and are excited to continue to keep up with other members of the Roloff family when Little People, Big World returns next year,” TLC says.
Meanwhile, Tori told her more than 700,000 followers that sharing their lives with the television universe can be weird, but the family does not hold back.
“Our philosophy is if we aren’t willing to share something with others we probably shouldn’t be doing it,” she wrote.
“Plus something we’re going through can ultimately help others (even though that still baffles me today).”
