TLC airs Kate Plus Eight: Sextuplets Turn 10 in two-part special

It’s going to be an exciting night on TLC tomorrow, as the network welcomes back their favorite mom of sextuplets — Kate Gosselin— for a two-part special titled Kate Plus Eight: Sextuplets Turn 10 airing on Thursday, June 19 at 10pmET/9pmCT (directly following the premiere of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo — yep, she’s still around), and the second part airing Thursday, June 26 at 10pmET/9pmCT.

It's a reunion special as TLC airs two-part special  Kate Plus Eight: Sextuplets Turn 10 In 2008, Kate and Jon Gosselin were the must-watch family of reality TV, where TLC cameras followed their every move in raising their twin daughters and 4-year-old sextuplets in Jon & Kate Plus 8. Fame eventually changed their once adorable home life, and their bitter divorce ignited a media maelstrom.
Despite their split, TLC continued to follow the family, without Jon, in Kate Plus 8 for two additional seasons. While Kate has worked to stay in the spotlight, appearing on Dancing With the Stars and next up Celebrity Apprentice, the children have remained completely out of it — until now (well, almost out of it, they did have that awkward Today show interview with just the twins).

“We’re doing this reunion show/special with Kate and the kids because it’s been a couple of years since we’ve caught up with the family and we wanted to see how they are doing and what life is like for them today. The Gosselins have been a part of our TLC family for years, and we felt it was time to check in, especially with the sextuplets approaching their 10th birthday,” says Wendy Douglas, executive producer. “We cover a day in the life with Kate and the kids. What is a typical day like for them? How have things changed/stayed the same in their household? We’re able to join them as they prepare for the sextuplets’ 10th birthday bash; we’ll hear some reflections from Kate and the kids on the past, as well as thoughts on life today and the future, and as we’ve done for many years. We’ll celebrate the sextuplets 10th birthday with them.”

Could the future hold another reality series for the family? In an awkward Today show interview earlier this year, twins Cara and Mady said they definitely would be open to it. And, when we asked TLC’s Douglas the same, she said, “You have to watch the special to find out.”

Part 1 of the Kate Plus Eight: Sextuplets Turn 10 airs on Thursday, June 19 at 10pmET/9pmCT and the second part airs Thursday, June 26 at 10pmET/9pmCT. TLC did update the date of this special (it no longer airs on the 25th).

So what do you think – glad the Gosselins are back? Sound off below.

  1. Alright look, if you don’t like the show, the kids, or Kate. THEN, DON’T WATCH IT! Good lord, obviously you’re only reading this blog for a reason I start drama and make yourselves mad. Some of us, have been watching the show from the very beginning and want to see how the whole family has grown! Yes, including Kate. So, have something rude to say? Then, take your rude comments and shove it. Geez, didn’t your parents ever teach you, “if you don’t have something nice to say, don’t say anything at all.”? Mmkay, rant over.

  2. All eight kids were cute when they were little, but unfortunately they have all become BRATS! Those twin girls are disgusting, but then again, look at who they have as a role model, their disgusting mother, Kate Gosselin. She needs to stop trying to get back on television and go back to Nursing. Who cares about her planning a birthday party, TLC is probably paying for the whole extravaganza! The show tonight was terrible!!! All eight kids are going to need psychiatric help. I will NOT watch next week.

    • You must love drama Anne, don’t watch Kate and her family unless you want to be disgusted even more. Please keep your snide remarks/comments to yourself. It’s her life and not everyone will agree with her & her kids life style. When you pop out 8 kids, then come back and tell us all how you really deal with life! Otherwise, zip your pie hole! Have a blessed day! 🙂

    • I agree that these kids are gonna be real screwed up, I could not believe how incredible controlling she was. I was cringing for those poor kids. And giving advice to her son about getting a wife?! She of all people should not be giving marital advise. I can see those kids all turning their backs on her the minute they turn eighteen and I wouldn’t blame them.

  3. As a mother of five myself, I find it sad that we say these sort of things about someone we really dont know and futher more about children. Raising 8 children is not an easy task and alone at that and who are any of us to judge. Maybe she’s just doing what she has to do to support her family. Wouldn’t you do the same. I would!

  4. Kate will never change, I only watched it to see the children. They are beautiful. The mother needs to take a good look at herself. I have watched it for 30 minutes and all she does is scold them. She needs the scolding. I am done watching the show it is supposed of the kids, it is all for her.

  5. I can’t wait! Love Kate and the kiddos. There are choices for all haters…Don’t watch if you don’t want…

  6. I would rather watch these sweet, well behaved children with some manners then that Honey Boo Boo crap on now!

      • They are disgusting the way they constantly talk about their bowel movements and gas. Their hygiene and eating habits are atrocious. The children are ignorant and disrespectful. I do not see how TLC considers them entertainment, nor why they pay them to be on TV.

  7. The older girls said they don’t want to be a apart of the special, but then kate is interviewed saying all the kids were xcited & wanted to do it. She said she wouldn’t do it, if all the kids weren’t on board. What a liar…goes to show, she’s in it for herself, not the best interest of the kids! Why do u people want to encourage this show, when the girls are on tv saying they’re done with it.

    • Haven’t watched in a while but I’d rather see the little ones and not the twin….one of them is still disrespectful and very needy and whiney….and Kate….stop with the Botox!

  8. It will be great to see the kids again.. I miss the show I loved seeing there little faces.

  9. It would be interesting to see how the children have grown since being off the show and what there personalities are now. I personally don’t think they need to come back with a full show again because of the hatred between the parents still and it will likely spill out on an ongoing show that the kids will be affected by. I felt that both kate and Jon erred for all to see when their marriage fell apart and fame took precedence maybe more so on kate ‘ s part but it may have included her way of trying to keep income coming in for her family. Sadly it was tragic that they couldn’t make the marriage work for their entire family. We won’t know exactly how their actions will effect their children as they get older and have this show to look back on and the shows and interviews that both parents did since their break up.

  10. I can’t wait! It’s not about KATE it’s about the KIDS! Jesus! Don’t like it, don’t watch. I’m sure you have more than TLC on your tv. If not, shut it off and turn the radio on. No one is making anyone watch anything.
    I’m looking forward to seeing how big they all are and how they are doing!
    I’ve always been a fan! I don’t agree with what Jon did and how Kate tries too hard to be in the spotlight, but like I said, it’s about the KIDS!

  11. I would love to see Kate and the kids. I love this show regardless of what happened between them. Looking forward to the episodes.

  12. Donna must be Jons New GF. So girl shut up pls get a freakin life. We all want to see how those kids are doing. Peace People that lame people are as ignorant and evil Like Donna.

  13. TLC must be crazy to think we care about that no good, lying, fame whore with no talent witch. I would rather see the kids and Jon. Get her out of here and quit shoving her down our throats. I will NOT be watching any of it.

    • It’s really so sad to see you putting so much hatred out there in the world…if you don’t have anything nice to say about this topic, then please take your opinions somewhere else. No one is forcing you to watch the show or even forcing you to read this article, you’re basically just looking for reasons to get angry.

    • You have a real problem if you want to see her. The kids fine, but keep her out of it. Many of us are so sick of her.

      • And many of us want to see what the kids are up to. Especially the ones who have watch from the beginning. I would love to see them again.
