TLC might have officially cancelled 19 Kids and Counting earlier this month, but it looks like while most of the world is ready to move on and find their next TV viewing guilty pleasure, the Duggar family is still reeling from the announcement. After it was revealed that Josh Duggar had sexually molested five girls while he was a teenager, including sisters Jill Duggar and Jessa Duggar, the network had no choice but to cancel the much loved series. It is being reported that Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar are heartbroken over the ending of their series, after ten years being on the air. Now the former reality stars are speaking out saying that the saddest part about not being on the air is that they will no longer get the opportunity to share their faith with millions of fans.
According to Radar Online, it seems that what the super religious family is the most torn up about is the fact that they won't get to share their Christian beliefs with the show's audience every week.
Insiders explained to People that the Duggars felt that being on TV was part of God's greater plan for them and without that, they feel heartbroken.
"The Duggars want to return to TV because they truly believe it was part of God's plan for them to spread the word about their faith," the source stated.
It is also being reported that Jim Bob and Michelle expected people to get over the scandal and they were shocked that their show was canceled because of it.
"Their thinking is, they put this behind them ages ago, so why wouldn't the rest of the world?" the insider revealed, adding that Jim Bob and Michelle "honestly did expect people to just move on" from it.
However, there still might be hope for the fans of the series, as it is being speculated that the kids might return to the network in specials. In fact, Jill and Jessa are already going to be part of the sexual abuse documentary that TLC is rolling out in August.© 2019 Mstars News, All rights reserved. Do not reproduce without permission.
