About the Show

After shocking the world with a ground-breaking weight loss of nearly 300 pounds, June Shannon (aka “Mama June”) is back and hotter than ever! But the biggest transformation in reality TV history has only just begun. Being thin is a whole new life for Mama June as she experiences so many firsts – from a lingerie shoot to new attention from men to not even caring if she gains a size—(or two or three )—back. And this season, June is about to turn more heads- she’s shedding pounds for a crown! And who better to coach Mama other than daughter and former toddler pageant queen, Alana Thompson (aka “Honey Boo Boo”)! But as Mama struts her new bod back into the pageant circuit she can’t seem to drop the weight of her troubled past. Mama’s ex, Sugar Bear and his new wife Jennifer are on a mad hunt to get visitation rights with Sugar Bear’s 11-year-old daughter, Alana. Meanwhile Jennifer makes devious plans to prove her growing suspicion that Alana might not be Sugar Bear’s biological child. June’s 17-year-old daughter, Lauryn “Pumpkin” Shannon reveals a secret pregnancy that forces her to grow up and then lock horns with Mama when she decides to move her immature boyfriend, Josh into Mama’s house! As things fire up around her, Mama’s love life ignites when a mystery man enters her life, raising questions from her protective family. But then a shocking health crisis, that no one sees coming, turns everything upside down and sends Mama to the emergency room! Will this Georgia Peach make a comeback and win the title & the crown or will the curtains close on her entire world for good?
