Teen Mom 2 is returning on Wednesday, July 16 at 10PM ET/PT with the second half of its fifth season on MTV.
The season will continue to chronicle Teen Mom 2 stars Kailyn Lowry, Jenelle Evans, Leah Messer and Chelsea Houska as they attempt to deal with legal issues, health problems and broken romantic and family relationships.
Teen Mom 2 will feature Jenelle pregnant with her second child, her son Jace developing unfortunate behavioral problems, and a bump in the road with her boyfriend Nathan as he endures time in jail. Nathan's drinking habits will lead to arguments and more tension between Jenelle and her mother Barbara.
Chelsea bought her first home but quickly realized she can't get comfortable yet, as The Department of Labor charges her with violating its protocol, so her work life is put on hold. She'll challenge the allegations to receive her aesthetician license all the while co-parenting young Aubree with her ex-boyfriend Adam.
Leah will be shown co-parenting with Corey as they're coping with their daughter Ali's health issues. Corey's insurance will decline their request for a wheelchair and Ali will become more aware of her condition. Leah will also seek help for anxiety amidst taking care of three children, frequent doctor visits, and maintaining her marriage with Jeremy. However, the medicine will result in side effects she'll have to handle.
Kailyn will take care of her two children Isaac and Lincoln while her husband Javi is away at work. She'll try to rebuild her relationship with her estranged mom and attempt to mend things with Isaac's father Jo and his current girlfriend Vee. At one point, Isaac must stay with Jo for six weeks and she'll miss him so much she'll begin to rethink their visitation agreement.
Teen Mom 2 is executive produced by Morgan J. Freeman, Dia Sokol Savage and Lauren Dolgen.
