MTV made the special announcement via a press release sent to HollywoodLife.com, saying:
“Teen Mom 2” will return to MTV this summer for another intense season, but this time with a twist. For the first time in “Teen Mom” history, a new mom is on the scene. Briana, whose story began on “16 and Pregnant” and “Teen Mom 3,” will join Chelsea, Jenelle, Leah and Kailyn, sharing her story on “Teen Mom 2.” Since the cameras stopped rolling, Briana has juggled raising five-year-old Nova with help only from her mom and sister, while also trying to balance a career and new boyfriend, Luis. She finds herself unexpectedly pregnant with her second child and hopes for the best. But when she hears shocking news about Luis, she is forced to make one of the hardest decisions a mother can face, in order to provide the best life for her new child.
This casting shakeup was first reported by The Ashley’s Reality Roundup in March, but this is the first time MTV is confirming the news. Fans were first introduced to Briana in 2012, when she starred in an episode of 16 and Pregnant, which documented her first pregnancy with her daughter, Nova. Briana’s sister also starred in the episode, as she made the decision to terminate her pregnancy. The cameras followed both girls as they faced the consequences of the decisions they made. Briana later went on to star in Teen Mom 3 in 2013, but the show was cancelled after one season. Then, in 2016, Briana starred in Season 1 of VH1’s Family Therapy with Dr. Jenn along with her sister, Brittany, who may or may not be dating Kailyn Lowry’s ex Javi Marroquin (rumor has it she is). Briana is currently pregnant with her second child and has a new boyfriend. Click here to see pics from Teen Mom 2!
