TLC CONFIRMS THE FINAL SEASON OF LITTLE PEOPLE, BIG WORLD

All-new episodes premiere September 6 at 8/7c

LOS ANGELES, CA -- One of television's favorite families prepares to say goodbye as TLC confirms that the previously announced upcoming sixth season of the hit series LITTLE PEOPLE, BIG WORLD will be the series finale. For more than 200 episodes, the Roloffs - parents Matt and Amy, both little people, and their kids Jeremy, Zach, Molly, and Jacob - have welcomed viewers to share their daily lives from their pumpkin farm in Oregon. Since it began airing in 2006, an average of 74 million P2+ viewers each year tuned in to LITTLE PEOPLE, BIG WORLD to watch the family's adventures.

"Through LITTLE PEOPLE, BIG WORLD, the Roloffs have touched the hearts and enlightened the minds of millions of people worldwide," said Eileen O'Neill, President & GM, TLC. "Its groundbreaking premiere introduced us all to the realities of being a little person, and we thank Matt & Amy and their family for their courage and willingness to share their lives."

"The show has been an amazing and unforgettable experience for our entire family," said Matt & Amy Roloff. "Over the past 5 years we have shared the most rewarding journey that will forever be in our hearts. We are gearing up to begin new and exciting adventures as a family and we look forward to starting the next chapter of the Roloffs. We will always be grateful to our TLC family, and most of all, our fans."

Season six follows one of the most dramatic seasons of LITTLE PEOPLE, BIG WORLD ever - including a spring finale cliffhanger of Matt Roloff collapsing in his home office - leaving his family and fans concerned for his wellbeing. The premiere episode picks up right there, as the incident causes Matt to question his health and inspires both Matt and Amy, in typically different ways - Amy starts working with a personal trainer, while Matt takes a big risk by skydiving with Jeremy.

The season also finds Matt starting to think about the future of the farm while Amy focuses on giving back through her charity foundation. And, as the twins turn 20, they evaluate what to do next with their lives - do they have the drive and desire to move off the farm and make it on their own?

LITTLE PEOPLE, BIG WORLD is produced for TLC by Gay Rosenthal Productions. Executive producers are Gay Rosenthal, Paul Barrosse, Joseph Freed, Nicholas Caprio, and Jeffrey L. Weaver.
