As Duggar fans know, the family’s TLC show, Counting On was recently canceled following Josh’s arrest. Now, fans of the Bates family are worried that their show, Bringing Up Bates could have the same fate. Though the shows are on separate networks and don’t typically feature each other, the two families are friends. So, some fans are concerned that their connection to each other could have its consequences.

While some are worried that the Bates family’s show will get canceled, others are hopeful that it will end as the Duggar family’s show has. For now, it’s unclear whether Bringing Up Bates will return for another season. Some fans have heard that it will be canceled, but there hasn’t been an official announcement from UPtv. So, fans must wait to hear exactly what will happen to their favorite show. In the meantime, they are expressing their concerns on social media.

Fans wonder about possible Bringing Up Bates cancelation

On Instagram, someone submitted a confession to the @DuggarBates_Confessions page and talked about Bringing Up Bates. This page allows users to send anonymous confessions and reposts them to give fans a place to share their thoughts.

The user wrote, “Now if they will just cancel the Bates…” It looks like this confession is in response to the recent Counting On cancelation. It’s unclear why they think the Bates family should no longer be on TV though.


In the comments section of the post, many fans are upset that the user would call for the cancelation of the Bates family’s show. They remind the user that they don’t have to watch the show. Others point out that the Duggars have been involved in multiple scandals, but nothing has come out about the Bates family. One writes, “ABSOLUTELY NOT OP! There is nothing public that the Bates have done wrong!!!! If you don’t want it, by all means go watch something else.”

Many fans are chiming in and saying they hope the show doesn’t end yet. One fan writes, “Nooooo!!! My favorite family show!!! Never ever cancel this please!! We need them in our lives and I love their faith! 😇”

  1. I LOVE THIS SHOW. These very likeable people are fun to watch, and they present a wonderful example of how to parent, how to communicate within a family, and how to show love and respect to others. All of which is a training that many can benefit from. Other, similar shows being cancelled should have no effect on this one, PLEASE DO NOT CANCEL THIS SHOW!!!
