The official word: TLC today confirmed that it has ordered four new LITTLE PEOPLE BIG WORLD specials, bringing back the beloved Roloff family – husband and wife Matt and Amy, and their children Jeremy, Zach, Molly, and Jacob. The groundbreaking series, the first to take viewers into the real-life challenges and celebrations of a family comprised of little and average height people, ran on TLC from 2006 – 2010.
The first special will resolve the cliffhangers left from the series finale, including the state of Matt and Amy’s marriage, if the family sold the farm, and what’s become of the kids. It will tentatively air in early October, 2011. Production began this week.
“The response from the fans since LITTLE PEOPLE BIG WORLD’s finale has been overwhelming, asking how we’re doing and what’s the latest with the kids. These specials are going to be a great opportunity to share our families’ updates with our fans from time to time through the year,” said Matt & Amy Roloff.
“Across six seasons, the Roloffs shared unfiltered access to their remarkable lives, and these specials are a great opportunity to update the TLC audience on their latest developments,” said Amy Winter, GM, TLC. “Matt and Amy will always be part of our network’s family and we know their fans will be excited to reconnect.”
