Kate Gosselin and her eight children will be making a stop by TLC, the network that made them famous, for a special in June. Their show, which also initially featured Gosselin’s ex-husband Jon Gosselin, has been off the air for two years now.
The special will update viewers on how the children have grown up since Jon & Kate Plus 8 left the airwaves, reports ABC News. Her sextuplets - Alexis, Hannah, Aaden, Collin, Leah and Joel - are now 9, while Mady and Cara are 13.
Us Weekly notes that Jon was not mentioned in the announcement, likely meaning that he will not appear in the show. Jon has been vocal about his displeasure with reality TV since the show ended, although he did take a gig on Vh1’s Couples Therapy with girlfriend Liz Janetta.
Back in November, Gosselin told Oprah Winfrey that the children are now having problems “developmentally,” even though their education is all covered.
“...Developmentally, they have problems with their peers, and they have problems with talking to other people, and they have problems with wants and needs and manners and morals and what's right and what's wrong,” Gosselin said. “I think more so than someone who grows up off TV.”
Jon & Kate Plus 8 first aired in 2007 and ran until 2009. Then, it was changed to just Kate Plus 8, which was cancelled in 2011.
