--All-new Episodes Return Tuesday, May 26, to coincide with the release of
Bill and Jen's new book, "Life is Short (No Pun Intended)" -
(Silver Spring, MD) - With Jen entering her second cancer-free year, and Bill steadily recovering from a recent back surgery, TLC's favorite little couple is finally ready to focus on making memories and spending quality time with their kids, 4-year-old Will and 3-year-old Zoey, in an all-new season of THE LITTLE COUPLE airing Tuesdays at 9/8c, beginning May 26.
This season is all about learning and trying new things as Will takes his first karate class, Zoey tries ballet and the family adopts some new pet fish. Slowing down is not an option for this resilient family. While Jen juggles motherhood, her career and tending to Bill through his recovery, Bill does his best to maintain his "super dad" status despite his medical limitations. Will and Zoey make steady progress in school and with their speech and language skills, and the entire family continues to take advantage of all that each day has to offer. Each new episode is packed with love, laughter and plenty of aww-worthy moments.
In the premiere episode, Will and Zoey help speed up Bill's recovery process by taking him and their dogsout for a walk, and Bill and Jen get to spend some quality time together while on a trip to New York. Later, in the spirit of learning, the family takes a trip to NASA's Johnson Space Center where they learn about rocket ships, astronauts and outer space. Does Will have what it takes to be the first little person astronaut?
Complementing the season premiere is the release of Bill and Jen's new book, "Life Is Short (No Pun Intended)," from Howard Books, a division of Simon and Schuster. In it, Bill and Jen give an insider's account on how they met, fell in love and overcame life's toughest challenges to get to where they are now - happy and successful parents and professionals.
