MTV announced that it is bringing back the iconic series 16 and Pregnant as a newly reimagined docu-series. The series launched over a decade ago and helped to reduce teen pregnancy to record lows. The six-episode season premieres on Tuesday, October 6 at 9PM ET/PT on MTV. The new season will follow the pregnancy journey from multiple perspectives, not just from the young mother.
16 and Pregnant first aired on MTV in 2009, and helped support young people in making responsible decisions about sexual health. MTV will continue this important conversation in the upcoming season. 16 and Pregnant kicked off three hit series spanning over the last ten years, “Teen Mom OG,” “Teen Mom 2” and “Teen Mom: Young + Pregnant.”
MTV also announced it was expanding its 16 and.. franchise with 16 and Recovering, an intimate, four-part documentary series that follows the triumphs and challenges of nine students attending Northshore Recovery High School in Beverly, Massachusetts, which was founded to address the rise in adolescent addiction in the midst of the opioid epidemic.
