Plot Synopsis

Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar love their family -- and the bigger the better, in their opinion. The Duggars welcome its eighteenth member with the new season. Plus, oldest son Josh is now living nearby with his new bride. Laundry, cooking, cleaning and parenting take on army-sized proportions in this heartwarming series. After TLC aired a three-part special, DUGGARS DO ASIA, in March 2013, the network presented the Season 7 premiere on Tuesday, April 2, 2013 at 9pm ET/PT. In the new season: Josh and Anna are pregnant with the third Duggar grandbaby; Jim Bob and Josh realize it's time to focus on their health and shrink their waistlines; Jana and Jill are training to become midwives and doulas; John David is earning his wings to pilot an airplane; Joseph leaves home for the first time to attend bootcamp; and the middle boys begin construction on their very own greenhouse. 19 KIDS AND COUNTING returned for its eighth season on Tuesday, April 1, 2014 at 9pm ET/PT on TLC. Season 8 explores a changing family dynamic as the Duggar children continue to grow up, with many of the older kids considering courtships. The four eldest Duggar girls -- Jana, Jill, Jessa and Jinger -- announce that they have written a book and the family attends Erin Bates' highly-anticipated wedding. Michelle spends one-on-one time with each of her children and the whole family visits Josh and Anna in Washington, DC. Throughout the season, cameras check in on the DC-based Duggars as Anna begins to homeschool her growing brood and the young family goes on a fun ski outing for a day. Two of the Duggars make a special trip to Nepal and the youngest children prepare a surprise dinner theatre talent show for Jim Bob and Michelle. 19 KIDS & COUNTING returned with all-new episodes on September 2, 2014 at 9pm ET/PT, as TLC aired the series on Tuesdays in the same timeslot through November. Jim Bob and Michelle start the emotional journey of giving away their first daughter in marriage as Jill and Derick plan their rapidly approaching nuptials. From dress shopping to cake tasting, it's all hands on deck as the engaged pair prepare for their big day. But this happy occasion is bittersweet as the family starts to realize what giving away Jill will mean to their close-knit clan. Also this season, Jessa and Ben continue to grow closer as their courtship takes an unexpected turn when Ben makes a move to live closer to Jessa. Jim Bob and Michelle celebrate 30 years of marriage as Jill and Derick prepare their new home together with the help of the family. The newly engaged couple also tends to Derick's mom Cathy as she bravely battles cancer. And after their first year in Washington, D.C., Josh, Anna and their three kids decide it may be time to make a few changes in their own growing family. On Tuesday, February 17, 2015 at 9pm ET/PT, TLC premiered a new season of 19 KIDS AND COUNTING. In the season opener, "Jill's Secret," the family preps for Jessa's upcoming wedding to Ben Seewald. From budgeting to bridesmaid attire, Jessa knows what she wants, but will there be time to get it? And as Jill shares a life-changing announcement with her family, how will the Duggars react?
On Tuesday, May 19, 2015 at 9pm ET/PT, TLC premiered the season finale of 19 KIDS AND COUNTING, immediately following a new one-hour special "Duggars Guide to Love" at 8pm and an all-day marathon (6am-8pm) of encore episodes. In the season ending special episode (9pm), "Digging In with the Duggars," Erica Hill joins the Duggar family to talk all things family, marriage, babies, and new courtships from their milestone year. They are even joined by a few surprise guests to add to their most exciting season yet.
