If after last year’s Little People, Big World series finale, you were concerned about the state of Matt and Amy Roloff’s marriage, or if they decided to sell the farm, and how the older boys, Jeremy and Zach Roloff, are doing as adults, TLC has a solution for your curiosity.

TLC has confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter that it has ordered four new specials with the Roloffs. Production has already begun with the first one currently scheduled to air in early October. The first special will address some of the cliffhangers in the series finale.

“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,” Matt and Amy Roloff say in a joint statement. “These specials are going to be a great opportunity to share our families’ updates with our fans from time to time through the year.”

“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,” says TLC GM, Amy Winter. “Matt and Amy will always be part of our network’s family and we know their fans will be excited to reconnect.”

The reality series was the first to focus on a family comprised of both little and average-sized members. It ran from 2006-2010.

Gay Rosenthal Productions is producing the specials for TLC.
