NEW YORK, NY (February 25, 2015) - MTV today released the trailer for "Teen Mom OG." "Teen Mom OG," featuring Amber, Catelynn, Farrah and Maci will premiere on Monday, March 23 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT.

Audiences have watched them unexpectedly face young motherhood as they grew up, broke-up, made up and encountered major obstacles to become the young women they are today. Now it's time to find out where the original girls of the groundbreaking MTV series "Teen Mom" are in life, love and parenthood.

In a first for the "Teen Mom" franchise, "Teen Mom OG" will break the fourth wall, pulling back the curtain to reveal their relationships with the producers and crew, the challenges of raising children on camera, and how life in the public eye has shaped them as parents and people. Each episode will give an unprecedented look into these young mothers' lives and how they're facing the responsibilities of parenthood as their children enter kindergarten, start little league and reach other milestones of youth.

"Teen Mom OG" picks up with Amber, Catelynn, Farrah and Maci a few years after the cameras were turned off and finds them at a new stage in their lives as parents.

Newly released from prison, Amber is trying to raise her daughter Leah with her ex, Gary, who is expecting a baby with his new girlfriend. Meanwhile, she is attempting to navigate a life of sobriety while diving back into the world of dating. The decision to accept an engagement proposal from someone she hasn't known very long could change her world entirely.

Catelynn and Tyler find out that they're expecting a baby of their own as they struggle to mend a strained relationship with the adoptive parents of their daughter, Carly.

Farrah continues to juggle parenting Sophia while trying to mend relations with her own mother, Debra. When Farrah finds love in a long distance relationship for the first time since the death of Sophia's dad, will she finally be able to find happiness while balancing motherhood, her new love and her career?

Maci finds love with her new boyfriend, Taylor, who recently moved to Tennessee to be with her. Soon after his arrival, the couple finds themselves dealing with an unexpected pregnancy. Meanwhile, she continues attempting to co-parent Bentley with Ryan who makes everything extremely challenging.

Viewers can stay up to date on everything "Teen Mom" by going to MTV.com and to the "Teen Mom" Facebook page for sneak peeks of the show including bonus/extended scenes and exclusive interviews with the Amber, Catelynn, Farrah and Maci.

"Teen Mom" and "16 and Pregnant" have been widely credited for contributing to recent declines in the teen birth rate in the United States, which fell 30 percent since the premiere of both shows in 2009. A 2014 study by researchers at the University of Maryland and Wellesley College found that the series ultimately led to a 5.7 percent reduction in teen births in the 18 months following its introduction - one-third of the overall decline in teen births in the United States in that period.

In a 2012 poll by the National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy, 77 percent of teens age 12-19 who have seen "16 and Pregnant" and "Teen Mom" say the shows "help teens better understand the challenges of pregnancy and parenting." According to the National Campaign, more than 600,000 teenage girls in the U.S. become pregnant every year and nearly one out of every ten children in the U.S. is born to a teenage mother. Nearly one in six teen moms has a second child during their teen years. The vast majority of teen pregnancies are unintended.

More information about sexual health issues affecting young people, including unintended pregnancy, is available at www.itsyoursexlife.com.
