MTV has announced the third season of Teen Mom 2 will premiere Monday, November 12 at 10PM ET/PT.
Teen Mom 2's third season will continue to follow Chelsea Houska, Jenelle Evans, Kailyn Lowry, and Leah Messer as they try their best to raise toddlers in their "terrible twos" as young women and also experience their recent headline-making events.
During the upcoming season, viewers will see Messer, the mother of twin girls Alianna and Aleeah, get divorced from husband Corey Simms and mediate custody of their two children. In attempt to move on, Messer will also look into a local university's nursing program and fall hard for a new boy named Jeremy Calvert, however, her feelings don't disappear for Simms. Despite her emotional confusion, Teen Mom 2's next season will feature the young mom getting engaged to Calvert and pregnant again. (Unfortunately she later suffered a miscarriage.)
Viewers will also see Evans continue to struggle with the responsibilities of motherhood and her strong desire to party. Evans' mother Barbara will take care of her son Jace until she can step up to the plate and prove she's a good role model. While on probation, Evans will fail her mandatory drug test and be given time in jail as a result. Upon settling down, she will get involved with a guy named Josh and move in with him, but things will drastically change once ex-boyfriend Keiffer re-enters the picture.
In addition, Evans will reveal she's uncertain whether "absent 'birth father' Andrew is Jace's dad after all, and begins to consider having him take a paternity test," according to the network.
After her relationship with son Isaac's father Jo deteriorated from the stress of parenting, Lowry will begin a new romance with co-worker Jordan. However, Lowry will cheat on Jordan with Jo, only to be rejected by Jo when she asks to reconcile and get back together. Lowry will then go back to Jordan, but his "controlling ways" will put a quick end to their relationship.
Due to her chaotic love life, Lowry will travel to Texas and focus her attention on family, especially her estranged half-sister. Lowry will end up encountering issues with her mother but will luckily meet a new guy named Javi.
Meanwhile, Houska, who gave birth to Aubree, will strive to make things work with her daughter's father Adam. He will surprise her with a promise ring, and then the couple will take their relationship to a new level and move in together. When the young mom's father Randy finds out about his daughter's living situation, he will kick Adam out.
Despite the obstacles she will face, Houska, according to MTV, will do "her best to get her life on track by finally finishing her GED, testing out therapy and working to make her beauty school dream a reality."
