TLC announced today that The Little Couple will return for its most emotional season yet beginning Tuesday, March 4 at 10/9 CT.
The one-hour season premiere follows Jen and Bill as they travel to India with their 3-year-old son Will to finally bring their newly-adopted toddler daughter Zoey home.
When Jen faces a sudden and frightening health crisis that forces her to fly home to Texas, Bill must stay behind with Will and complete the adoption process on his own.
Back home in Texas, Jen learns she is suffering from Stage 3 choriocarcinoma, a rare cancer that evolved from a non-viable pregnancy she had in the fall, and begins an aggressive treatment regimen, while Bill hones his “Mr. Mom” skills and the family relishes bonding with their new addition.
In addition to Jen’s brave cancer battle, the new season of The Little Couple features the Arnold-Klein clan as they celebrate Will’s fourth birthday, the children’s baptisms, Christmas and Jen’s 40th birthday.
And it looks like a happy ending for the family is in the offing. Jen’s cancer is now in remission.
“My prognosis is very good,” she tells us. “It’s a very rough chemotherapy regiment with weekly treatments, but I am now happy to report that I am done. I still must undergo close monitoring for a long time, but re-occurrence rates are low for my type of tumor. Now it’s just a matter of getting back to my normal self — stamina, strength — and that could take months. But I am ready for the road to recovery!”
