Two-Hour Reunion Special Hosted by Dr. Drew Pinsky To Air on February 11 Beginning at 9:00 P.M. ET/PT

New York, NY - February 4, 2013 - As season three of "Teen Mom 2" comes to an intense, dramatic close tonight, February 4 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT, MTV announced that viewers of the groundbreaking hit series won't have to wait: the series will continue in its Monday evening timeslot as season four debuts on February 18 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT, a week following the emotional, two-hour reunion special with Dr. Drew Pinsky on February 11 beginning at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT.

Season four will pick up immediately where season three left off, diving deeper into the lives of Chelsea, Jenelle, Kailyn and Leah as they continue to navigate the ups and downs of motherhood, life and love. From the tragic loss of an unborn child and a heartbreaking love triangle to ongoing custody battles and struggles to pursue an education, these young women will once again pull back the curtain to give viewers a raw look inside the difficulties and joys of young motherhood.

With her life turned upside down after a miscarriage, Leah struggles with her decision about her engagement to Jeremy, and even confesses to him that she still has feelings for her ex-husband, Corey. Their love triangle becomes even more complicated when Leah and Corey decide to give it one last try. Ultimately, she decides to make things work with Jeremy. With her engagement back on, Leah moves forward with a wedding and her life with Jeremy, Ali, and Aleeah.

Kailyn continues to battle with Joe over custody, and takes him to court for a Protection from Abuse order after an argument turns physical. Things get serious with her new boyfriend Javi as they decide to move in together and take their relationship to the next level.

Chelsea focuses on beauty school, but has trouble concentrating when the pressure starts to mount. With has a soft spot for her daughter Aubree's father, Adam, she once again rekindles their relationship. However, history repeats itself when the two cannot make their tumultuous relationship work, and Adam starts dating again and takes Chelsea to court for custody of Aubree. And, even though their reconnection only lasted for a short time - the decision to give him yet another chance could change her life forever.

With motherhood and partying starting to collide, old habits die-hard as Jenelle continues her on and off relationships with Gary and Kieffer. With both of these men in and out of her life, her constant partying and troubles with the law, her life is beginning to spiral out of control as Jenelle continues to have difficulties finding time for her son Jace.

The teen birth rate in the U.S. declined 25 percent between 2007 and 2011. Despite the steep decline in teen birth rates, more than 700,000 teenage girls in the U.S. still become pregnant each year and one out of every ten children in the U.S. is born to a teenage mother. The vast majority of these pregnancies are unintended, and one quarter of all teen moms have a second child within two years. In a recent poll by the National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy, 77 percent of teens age 12-19 that have seen "16 and Pregnant" and "Teen Mom" say the shows "help teens better understand the challenges of pregnancy and parenting."

More information about sexual health issues affecting young people, including unintended pregnancy, is available at www.itsyoursexlife.com, a public information resource developed by MTV and the Kaiser Family Foundation. The National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy is working with the show to provide additional information.
