“Our statement about the cancellation of ‘Counting On’ is a little late because we just learned the news with the rest of the world last Tuesday + this season of life is quite busy for us,” the pair said in a statement shared on their website. “We first heard of the cancellation when both a friend & a cousin each texted us after seeing TLC’s statement online. We do not know how long the cancellation had been planned.”
The show followed members of the Duggar family who were not as prominently featured in the original. Josh Duggar did not appear in “Counting On,” which ran from 2015-2020.
“It’s been over 4 years now since we chose to step away from the show, そして, although we were initially barred from sharing our decision to leave the show, we have opened up a little more recently on our social media,” Jill and Derick’s statement continued.
