TLC Leaves Counting On Fans Hanging

Fans are very excited about the upcoming shows of TLC. However, some were disappointed as TLC didn't announce a release date for Counting On. 

Recently, a special episode from the Duggars was aired but not everyone's happy about it. Apparently, some fans were disappointed as it shared a glimpse of a small portion of what's happening in the family.

Counting On: A New Life only featured Jessa Duggar's pregnancy. The arrival of Brooklyn Praise was also revealed during the special episode.

Unfortunately, that's all there is in the special. Due to this, fans expected that TLC will release a follow-up episode at some point.

Fans Are Hoping That the Next Season Will Focus on Jana

Although there have been no plans for a new season yet, fans are hoping to see the courtship of Jana Duggar in the future Counting On installment. Rumors of her romantic relationship with a pilot named Stephen Wissmann have been spreading like wildfire recently.

There is a lot of evidence suggesting that there's something going on between the two. Apparently, Jana was seen in Florida recently to watch an airshow. Fans think that Stephen was also there in the event considering that he's also a pilot.

But one of the most notable proofs so far was a picture of Jana celebrating Christmas with the Wissmann family. She was seen sitting next to Stephen. However, the picture was taken down on social media by the family after the rumors surfaced.
