The third season of Teen Mom 2 comes to a close tonight, but fans of Chelsea Houska, Kailyn Lowry, Jenelle Evans and Leah Messer won't have to wait long for their return—season 4 premieres on Feb. 18! MTV offered a little information about each girl's storyline (which will pick up right where tonight's finale leaves off).
As expected, we'll see Leah torn between her now-husband Jeremy Calvert and her ex, Corey Simms. Obviously, she decides to pursue a new life with Jeremy—but knowing the outcome won't affect the quality of the drama en route! Leah will confess to Jeremy that she still has feelings for Corey. Can't wait to see how that goes over.
Also expected: Kailyn takes her relationship with her now-husband, Javi Marroquin, to the next level. She also fights with baby daddy Jo Rivera, and when one argument gets physical, she takes him to court.
Chelsea fans should brace themselves—she rekindles her relationship with daughter Aubree's dad, Adam Lind, for the millionth time. And for the millionth time, it doesn't work out. "The decision to give him yet another chance could change her life forever," a statement from MTV read. Adam and Chelsea also make a courtroom appearance, when Adam decides he wants custody of Aubree.
As for Jenelle? Her future with the franchise is uncertain if Teen Mom 2 is renewed for a fifth season, but viewers should expect just as much Jenelle as ever in season 4. We'll see the troubled mom continue her relationships with Gary Head and Kieffer Delp. "With both of these men in and out of her life, her constant partying and troubles with the law, her life is beginning to spiral out of control as Jenelle continues to have difficulties finding time for her son Jace," the MTV statement says.
It's worth pointing out that teen birth rates have declined in the United States 25 percent between 2007 to 2011—Teen Mom premiered in 2009. A recent poll by the National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy revealed that 77 percent of teens aged 12 to 19 that have seen 16 and Pregnant and Teen Mom say the shows “help teens better understand the challenges of pregnancy and parenting.”
Another note for your calendar: a two-hour reunion show hosted by Dr. Drew Pinsky will air Feb. 11 at 9 p.m. on MTV.
