'Little People, Big World' is coming to an end on TLC
TLC confirmed this week that the upcoming sixth season of "Little People, Big World" will also be the last for the docu-series.
The cable network says that "Little People, Big World," which premiered in 2006 and will have aired over 200 episodes, draws an average of 74 million viewers per year, whatever that stat actually means.
"The show has been an amazing and unforgettable experience for our entire family," state series stars Matt & Amy Roloff. "Over the past 5 years we have shared the most rewarding journey that will forever be in our hearts. We are gearing up to begin new and exciting adventures as a family and we look forward to starting the next chapter of the Roloffs. We will always be grateful to our TLC family, and most of all, our fans."
Adds Eileen O’Neill, President & GM, TLC, "Through 'Little People, Big World,' the Roloffs have touched the hearts and enlightened the minds of millions of people worldwide. Its groundbreaking premiere introduced us all to the realities of being a little person, and we thank Matt & Amy and their family for their courage and willingness to share their lives."
Season 6 picks up in the aftermath of the spring cliffhanger that found Matt Roloff collapsed in the family's office.
What will come next?
The series returns on September 6.
