AceShowbiz - MTV is expanding its "Teen Mom" franchise. The network has announced a new series titled "Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant", serving as a spin-off to "Teen Mom". The new show centers on the lives of five new young women as they navigate life as Gen Z mothers.
Alongside the announcement, MTV unveils the first trailer of the show, introducing the five cast members. 20-year-old Ashley was the typical party girl in Las Vegas, but her life was turned upside down when she and her boyfriend, Bariki (Bar), found out they were having a baby. Ashley and Bar's mom are constantly at odds, which not only causes issues within their relationship, but also palpable friction between Bar and Ashley's mom.
Brianna is only 17 but is pregnant after hooking up with an old friend amid her tumultuous relationship with her transgender boyfriend Danae. Now Danae is back in the picture and has promised to raise the baby as his own, but Brianna's mom questions Danae's ability to support her daughter with their on-and-off-again relationship.
Meanwhile, 20-year-old Jade has an unstable relationship with her parents and her boyfriend Sean. Now that she's expecting her first child, she knows that she'll need her parents' support more than ever and is concerned that she won't be able to rely on them.
The fourth cast member is Kayla (18). The girl next door had a rude awakening when she found out she was expecting. Raised by a single mother, Kayla understood the sacrifices and struggles a single parent would face. While the pregnancy wasn't planned, she was excited to have a baby with Stephan, her boyfriend of three years. But Kayla is grappling with the decision to stay in the relationship for the sake of her baby or raise the little one on her own.
Lexi is the last cast member of "Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant". The 17-year-old small town girl seemingly had it all going for her -- head cheerleader, a supportive and loving family -- and then she got pregnant by her boyfriend of four years, Kyler. Isolated by her closest friends, the former "it" girl now feels alone and like she is the subject of her small, conservative town's gossip.
"Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant" is set to premiere on Monday, March 12 at 10 P.M. on MTV.
