Here Comes Honey Boo Boo Gets A Season 2 Premiere Date On TLC

We’ve had a few blissful and redneck-free months away from Here Comes Honey Boo Boo and the wild Thompson clan. On the backs of Mama June and Sugar Bear Thompson’s wedding this weekend, the reality series’ parent network, TLC, has apparently decided today is a good day to announce new episodes. Here Comes Honey Boo Boo will be returning to the schedule on July 17.

Season 1 of TLC’s hit reality series averaged 2.3 million viewers, created plenty of cultural catchphrases and lines, including the term “Honey Boo Boo child,” and even spawned additional Halloween and Thanksgiving special episodes. The show started off as a spinoff to Toddlers & Tiaras; however, the Honey Boo Boo character has become so popular (or at least well-known) that she has been discussed by talking heads like Anderson Cooper and was even spoofed in an episode of South Park that received some backlash from the family. Now, the show will be back for even more shenanigans.

According to Deadline, the new season is promising events including “butter rolling, tap dancing lessons, and wresting.” Additionally, yesterday’s nuptials between Sugar Bear and Mama June’s actually disallowed outside cameras so that TLC’s camera crews could come in and tape the show. Since the wedding invitations also encouraged redneck costumes, I’m guessing that when Here Comes Honey Boo Boo airs its second season, it will be a sight to behold.

TLC’s Here Comes Honey Boo Boo will return to the schedule for Season 2 beginning on July 17 at 9 p.m. ET.
