Jill & Jessa: Counting On.

Jill & Jessa: Counting On starts on Wednesday 20 July at 20:55.

It takes a village to raise a child, but when the children you are raising make up a village, life can get interesting. This is the case with the Duggar family. Often criticised for having too many children, the 21-member family had the world talking with the popular series 19 Kids and Counting. Now, they’re back in the spotlight on TLC Entertainment (135) in an all-new series, Jill & Jessa: Counting On.

In this series, sisters Jill and Jessa take centre stage and in some ways, life for the sisters has only just begun. Then, what was supposed to be the happiest time in their lives – a new baby, a new marriage, an exciting new chapter for both - gets shattered when devastating news about their older brother, Josh, is revealed.

While there may still be hurt and sadness, the family have a lot to look forward to. Jill and Derick are adjusting to parenthood with baby Israel, and are moving their growing family to Central America. Meanwhile, newlyweds Jessa and Ben welcome their first child and begin life as a family of three. In Jill & Jessa: Counting On, we follow these sisters as they share how their lives have changed and how they are loving every minute of growing, living far from each other, creating new memories and legacies for themselves.

Catch Jill and Jess and they go about life outside of their family’s shadow to carve their own paths in the season premiere of Jill & Jessa: Counting On, starting on Wednesday 20 July at 20:55.
