TLC dropped a pretty big bombshell on fans via Instagram when they published a My 600-Lb. Life trailer teaser. As TvShowsAce has previously reported, Season 11 of My 600-Lb. Life was slated to premiere on February 1st of next year. So, why is the network teasing a new episode is airing tonight?
Is a new episode of My 600-Lb. Life airing tonight?
Technically the answer to this question is both yes and no. A new episode of the series is airing tonight. But, it is technically from the Where Are They Now spin-off of the original series. As longtime fans of this TLC show knows, the series did so well that a spin-off providing fans with much-desired updates on various cast members was created. As far as fans know, it is unclear if cast members are contracted into agreeing to do more than one episode or if the network just approaches various cast members and asks if they want to film an update. Chatter on Reddit regarding the social media activity of various cast members suggests they are not contracted to do a second episode and get approached by production asking if they can film an update.
Thanks to COVID, episodes from the past few seasons felt a bit incomplete to fans. Many cast members (even ones that appeared to be doing well) didn’t actually get their surgeries before the episode concluded.
While individuals who follow the show can be extremely cruel in the way they discuss cast members, most admit in fan groups and on Reddit that what they truly desire is a good/happy storyline. So, they were a bit bummed by the lack of success stories as of late.
What is the new episode about?
Per TLC’s update on Instagram, the new episode of My 600-Lb. Life: Where Are They Now will give a 2022 update on the Hambrick brothers named John and Lonnie. As TvShowsAce previously reported, John and Lonnie made their debut on the TLC series back in January 2020 during Season 8. Unfortunately, the brink of the COVID-19 pandemic caused a bit of a delay in their weight loss journey.
How are John and Lonnie Hambrick doing? Were they successful in losing weight? Fans will find out during the new episode of My 600-Lb. Life: Where Are They Now when they get a 2022 update on the brothers.
