TLC'S HIT SERIES "THE LITTLE COUPLE" RETURNS WITH ALL-NEW FAMILY FUN AND A MAJOR LIFE CHANGING DECISION
--Ninth season premieres Tuesday, September 19 at 9/8c--
(Silver Spring, MD) - The fan-favorite little family is back in an all-new season of TLC's THE LITTLE COUPLE, premiering Tuesday, September 19 at 9/8c. Last season, Jen and Bill were getting back into the groove of regular life after navigating two international adoptions, Jen's battle with cancer and Bill's back surgery. Now, audiences get to check back in with Jen, Bill, Will and Zoey as they embark on new and exciting adventures, culminating in one life changing event!
At the start of this season, Jen and Bill take the kids on their first international trip to the United Kingdom when Jen is invited to participate in a conference in Scotland. It's not all work and no play, however, as the family takes the opportunity to visit a scotch distillery, a castle where Will and Zoey feel quite at home and plenty more adventures as they make their way to London, such as questioning a royal guard and partaking in proper British tea. Throughout the season, the family will continue to expand their horizons stateside, including a visit to Washington D.C. to host an adoption gala, which coincides with Zoey's fifth birthday celebration! Later in the season, Will also celebrates his birthday during a ski trip to Vermont, where the kids experience snow for the first time.
Viewers will also see Bill and Jen at home doing their daily balancing act of being hard-working parents. Now a few years older, Will and Zoey have become much more independent, and Jen and Bill are presented with new challenges in discipline, difficult conversations and managing potty-talk. The family is always busy as they juggle day-to- day activities such as swimming lessons, karate and speech therapy, as well as big celebrations like Halloween and the winter holidays. In the midst of all this, Bill teams up with Uncle Joe in his latest business venture: a new invention called The Pop-Up Pee Pad.
But the biggest challenge of them all comes out of the blue, when Jen and Bill are presented with a decision that will have a huge impact on the family's future. After much consideration, Jen accepts a job in St. Petersburg, Florida at the Johns Hopkins All Children's Hospital. While Jen and Bill are excited about their future in Florida, how will Will and Zoey handle the news?
