The couple revealed on their blog that they had been “a little late because we just learned the news on Tuesday with everyone else.”
After seeing TLC’s statement, two friends and a cousin each texted us to let us know.
The cancellation had been planned for a while.
We left the show about 4 years ago, and, although we were initially forbidden from discussing our departure, we have become more open on social media in the past few years.
In order to gain more control over their own lives, and to do what was best for their family, the married couple voluntarily stepped away from the show.
Authenticity and freedom have grown in our lives as we pursue these things. “
We have just taken one more step toward our story’s completion.
Leaving the reality show “19 Kids and Counting” and spin-off series “Counting On” has afforded us the opportunity to choose what we disclose.
At the moment, we’ll proceed as we see fit, and we’re hopeful of any future possibilities.
In recent years, Jill has distanced herself from her famous family.
Back in 2017, Derick was heavily criticised for claiming that being transgender is “a myth.”
Following the outrage, TLC announced that Derick Dillard has not appeared on the show in months and the network has no plans to feature him in the future.
Derick began defending himself on Instagram by saying, “My views are no different than most Americans, but I just brought it up.”
They’ve always defied Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar’s strict rules by wearing less conservative clothing, sending their children to public school, drinking alcohol, and using birth control.
Counting On was cancelled earlier this week, a source told The Sun.
Family was told over the phone, and it’s still a top secret.
It was hard to ignore the boycott of Counting On, and sponsors became alarmed following Josh’s arrest.
The insider reported: “Recently, a lot of discussions have occurred after the network had already spent money on production.
However, the bottom line is, the network wants to avoid getting behind the scandal around Josh’s trial.
Managers should have done something to demonstrate their support.
The source concluded: “The case has put the show in such a bad light, and in addition, there is no possibility of continuing it.”
When Josh’s arrest for child pornography became public, fans began a petition to stop Counting On.
Josh, 33, pleaded not guilty to the charges of receiving and possessing child pornography.
