It's time for another season of TLC's "OutDaughtered," but things are going to be much different. With a pandemic still rampaging the world, here's what we can expect in June.
Like most parents, Adam and Danielle Busby have had to sort out the challenge of homeschooling their kids due to the coronavirus. But unlike others, their situation is happening five times over — plus one.
The "OutDaughtered" stars are parents to five quintuplet girls, Ava Lane, Hazel Grace, Riley Paige, Olivia Marie, and Parker Kate, all five. Their first daughter, Blayke, is nine years old.
SELF-FILMED 'OUTDAUGHTERED' SEASON 7
Since COVID-19 has caused strict social distancing protocols, the parents of six had to tape some of season seven themselves. Somehow, they juggled their large family as well as camera equipment.
They sent the recordings to video editors and other crew members, and, to fans' delight, the new season is promptly on its way to us. It starts with a vacation to Jackson Hole, Wyoming.
CORONAVIRUS INTERRUPTS FAMILY VACATION
It's the first time the girls get to see snow, and they seem to be having a ball of a time. Just then, news of the coronavirus pandemic reaches the family, and they're as perplexed as anyone by how serious it is.
Back home, the family tries to figure out how they're going to manage to be with the quints 24/7. The girls are "expressive now, funnier, [and] louder," says Danielle, who's unprepared for homeschooling.
The outbreak also means Hazel's eye surgery has to be canceled. The young girl has suffered from a condition called nystagmus, which causes uncontrollable eye movement.
WHERE AND WHEN TO WATCH 'OUTDAUGHTERED'
The latest season will be available via several providers, including Fubo TV, DirecTV, Philo TV, TLC Go, and the TLC website. Fans may watch old episodes on Hulu, YouTubeTV, and Amazon Prime.
The official release date is set for June 2 at 9 pm ET. The show follows the life of Adam and Danielle, who got married back in 2006. They welcomed their first child in 2011 and the quints in 2015.
In 2016, the family decided to showcase their lives via television as the only couple on record to have an all-girls group of quintuplets in the nation. Viewers have seen the girls go from babies to toddlers and older.
'SWEET HOME SEXTUPLETS' TO RETURN TOO
Elsewhere, the network will also be airing a new season of "Sweet Home Sextuplets" just ahead of the Busbys' show. Parents Eric and Courtney Waldrop have bravely handled their sextuplets and three older sons.
The Waldrops will be considering if they should move into a mobile home despite their large family. They'll also have to figure out how to make all the children feel special by having one birthday party for everyone.
FANS CONFUSED OVER GIRLS' GRADUATION PICS
Late last month, Adam shared a graduation photo of his daughters, and "OutDaughtered" fans were confused about Riley. The little girl was ahead in schooling but was included in the pictures.
Viewers are wondering if Riley will be repeating kindergarten to be with her siblings instead of going to the first grade. The quints all looked adorable in their red gowns for the photos.
Most likely, fans will get an answer to their question during the next season of the show. They were glad, however, to see that Parker had graduated after not doing so well. Congratulations to all the girls.
