If you’re a fan of the TLC series 7 Little Johnstons, you might be wondering when does 7 little johnstons come back on 2020. As of this writing, the reality show has been renewed for a 13th season, which premieres on Tuesday, April 18. The family-centric series follows Trent and Amber’s brood of seven children who live with achondroplasia dwarfism.
The Johnstons—all seven of them -- of Forsyth, Georgia, are the stars of this reality-documentary series, which TLC describes as “the world’s largest known family of achondroplasia dwarfs.” Trent, a grounds supervisor at a local college, and housewife Amber have two biological children, Jonah and Elizabeth, while Anna, Alex, and Emma were adopted from Russia, Korea, and China, respectively. Episodes include everything from high-drama soccer tryouts to a disastrous attempt at a birds and bees discussion, all framed by the family tackling a massive renovation of their 6,000-square-foot, circa 1891 home.
When the show first debuted in 2015, it garnered some skepticism because of how much the family was willing to put on camera. But, according to the show’s official website, Trent and Amber believe that showing the good, the bad, and the ugly helps people relate to them as a real-life family.
While there’s no word yet on when the new season of 7 Little Johnstons will debut, we do know that relationships and major life events will take center stage this time around. For example, Trent will be focused on getting healthy after finding out he’s pre-diabetic, and the family will travel to Finland to visit Joose, their former exchange student.
