Little people big world 2017

It was Christmas on Roloff Farms during the season finale of Little People, Big World, but not everything was merry and bright. In fact, there was so much drama, we don’t know where to start, so let’s just go from the beginning:

Amy and Chris decorated their first Christmas tree together.

Contrary to many fans’ beliefs, Chris proved that he is definitely in this with Amy for the long haul. The couple kicked off the episode with a classic Christmas tradition, and it was very sweet. “It’s our first Christmas together, and it’s going to be a nice treat to spend it with you,” Chris said to Amy.


But there was also a bitter taste in the air. We saw flashbacks of holidays when Matt, Amy, and the kids were all together, and it made us — and Amy — kinda sad. “We always had a blast together,” Amy said.

So, of course, Matt and Caryn wanted to throw a Christmas party.

Caryn had been very vocal about wanting to start her life with Matt sans Amy, so she planned to throw a Christmas party for Matt’s parents and his kids. Everything seemed great until Matt suggested they invite Amy to the shindig. “I think it’s time to start our own traditions, but … she’s always welcome to come,” Caryn told Matt.


We also learned that the couple decided to buy a house together in Arizona, and it was like, hello, what about the farm?!

On to happier moments … it was the babies’ first Christmas!

Little Ember and Jackson celebrated their first Christmas holiday, and Zach and Jeremy were thrilled to start their own traditions together, especially since the family had been going through such a rough time. “Zach and I get to go through this father thing side-by-side,” Jeremy said. “It’s a very special thing that not a lot of people get to experience.”

Which had Zach thinking about more babies.

Zach brought up to Tori that this time next year, they could have another kid running around. He made it very clear that he is ready for a second baby. Tori, on the other hand? Not so much. “I definitely want to have more kids, but I want like, six months of being independent first,” she said. She also mentioned that she really wants a dog (her former dog, Zully, died a little over a year ago), but Zach shut that down real quick.

That brings us to Christmas plans …

The Roloffs had no idea what they were doing for Christmas, so Amy, Matt, Zach, and Jeremy sat down together to discuss it. “The fact that we all have to get together to decide what we’re doing is a bummer,” Jeremy admitted. “It’s not how it’s supposed to be. We would all prefer to be a big, happy family.”

Matt told everyone that he and Caryn are planning a big Christmas party, and he invited Amy to stop by, especially to say hello and see his parents. Well, to say that didn’t go over well would be an understatement. “I don’t really have a desire to be there,” Amy said. “I don’t have to be best friends with Matt or Caryn. In fact, I don’t have even have to be friends with them, but I try to be respectful for the sake of my family.”

Eventually, Matt got to hold his party and Amy decided to have everyone at her house the night before. And yes, Matt invited himself to Amy’s gathering, even though Chris was going to be there.

Before you knew it, it was the night of Matt and Caryn’s party!

Caryn was in the kitchen cooking up a storm when Matt told her he didn’t invite Amy and Chris to their event (although, he did invite Amy, so…). He said it was because Amy still had an issue with them as a couple and brought “tension” to the room. “Amy is adjusting to the idea of me dating Caryn,” Matt said. “She puts on a good, brave face, but I think there are some insecurities.”


During all this, Caryn got a phone call that she and Matt got the house in Arizona. Matt debated when to tell the boys about the news, considering this could change everything when it came to the farm. So, naturally, he told them at the party.

Both Jeremy and Zach took the news well, but admitted that it added a level of uncertainty to everyone’s future plans.

While the rest of the crew was there, Amy and Chris are enjoyed a quiet night at home.


They basically spent the night telling each other how happy they are together (good for them!), and Amy admitted that she is ready to move on. ” will always be difficult for me, but what Chris and I have is great and wonderful,” she said.

And then, there was Christmas Day.

We saw Matt and Caryn pack their bags and head off to Arizona, where Matt admitted that it was a very pivotal time in his life and for the farm. “Is this the beginning of the end?” he questioned.

The boys also reflected on the amazing year they had, but ultimately, everyone admitted that they are very unsettled.

We’ll have to wait for next season of Little People, Big World to see what happens to the Roloffs and the farm.

Little People, Big World star Amy Roloff took to social media recently to reveal when Season 13 is expected to air. Contrary to previous rumors, Amy Roloff told fans that the next new season will probably premiere a month later than expected. Jeremy Roloff apparently mistakenly told fans of the Roloff family’s long-running TLC reality TV series that new shows would pick back up in March. However, not even a month later, Amy Roloff squashed that rumor, saying that new episodes are expected in April.

Amy Roloff also hinted about the number of episodes that fans can expect in Season 13 of Little People, Big World. According to the 53-year-old Roloff family matriarch on Instagram just a few days ago, it “looks like early April” is when new episodes will air on TLC. In response to one of her Instagram followers, @glutenfreegems, saying that they “miss the show a bunch,” Amy Roloff graciously tagged the follower and replied that Little People, Big World will return in April, with 11 new episodes in Season 13 — she thinks.

“Coming in April more episodes (11 I think),” according to Amy Roloff.

Of course, TLC has not even yet confirmed that Little People, Big World has been renewed for a new season but usually gives viewers at least a few months’ notice before a new season will premiere with a renewal announcement. However, the last new season of Little People, Big World that ended with a two-hour finale on June 27, 2017, only afforded loyal fans not even a two-month notice before it premiered in May of 2017, according to RenewCancelTV on March 28, 2017. Much to the disappointment of fans, Season 12 also did not even air for a full two months and only had nine episodes.

What a blast! Went to ID to visit Chris’s family and go snowmobiling. Just beautiful. #allaboutfamily #amyssecondactcontinues #snowmobiling #idahocountry #chrisandamyPdx

There will also be nearly a 10-month break between when Season 12 ended and Season 13 begins if Amy Roloff is correct in her prediction of an early April premiere date for Little People, Big World. Fans of the large Roloff family are excited to finally get to watch Matt and Amy Roloff’s two new grandbabies — Jackson and Ember — on the small screen for Season 13. Matt Roloff, 56, shared a new photo of his 6-month-old granddaughter, Ember Jean, on his personal Facebook page on Wednesday, and fans of Little People, Big World immediately began asking when the Roloffs would be back on TV, to which one fan commented that she “heard March 31st.”

The Inquisitr previously reported that Jeremy Roloff, 27, had hinted via Instagram Stories a return date for sometime in March — he believed — for Season 13 of Little People, Big World, adding that filming was wrapping up for the season. Amy Roloff contradicted Jeremy’s previous prediction of March by saying new episodes are “coming in April” in a photo that she shared on Instagram of her recent trip to Idaho to meet boyfriend Chris’ family. The Hollywood Gossip wrote not even four months ago that fans of Little People, Big World are “growing concerned” about not getting a confirmed renewal and premiere date for Season 13 from TLC.

Hopefully, for fans, Amy Roloff is correct in her prediction of an early April premiere date for Season 13, along with two more episodes than the last season. Fans of Little People, Big World are saying that they are now “looking forward to April.”

LPBW fans got a hint from Amy Roloff back in July that they will film another season of the TLC show. Plus, Tori Roloff mentioned it at the beginning of September. Now, in a long post to catch up fans with what’s going on, Matt Roloff confirmed they’re busy with filming right now. So, fans of the family can now relax and look forward to yet another season of the long-running series.

LPBW returns, filming started says Matt Roloff – when can we expect it?

The show that features Matt Roloff, Amy, and the kids attracted loads of viewers for years. In fact, back in 2017, “After 12 years on the air, the TLC series that documents the lives of the Roloff family broke the Guinness World Record for the longest-running family-focused reality television show.” Good Housekeeping noted additionally, that “it came after the 298th episode aired on June 27, 2017.” Last season never sat too well with fans as we saw Matt and Amy tussling over splitting the farm. Plus, we saw more of his girlfriend Caryn Chandler.

Not everyone’s thrilled with Caryn as she and Matt allegedly cheated on Amy. Although that all happened years ago, split fans started squabbling over their favorites in the show. Nevertheless, the show will return. Jacob, recently married, left the show a few years back. Last season, Jeremy and Audrey also left the show. But, we still have Zach and Tori with their son Jackson, a firm fan-favorite. Plus we see Matt and Caryn and Amy and boyfriend Chris Marek. So when can we expect to see the next season of LPBW? Recent annual episodes premiered in April, except for 2016 which brought a November show. So, possibly we’ll see them in spring next year.

Filming and other things going on the life of the Roloff family

Matt explained on Instagram, that things got pretty frantic in the lives of the LPBW cast. He captioned his post with, “What a week! Wrapped up the celebration of Jacob and Izzy’s reception…then rolled straight into Embers epic 2nd birthday party with @jeremyroloff and @audreyroloff hosting the most fun party.” Plus, he mentioned his parents visited him from California for a few days. However, he tackled working on the Roloff Farms auction next.

Of course, he made lots of time for playing around with the grandkids. Fans know he recently made a play area for them. One of the reasons is that Jackson’s too small to get on some rides at public parks. Then Matt explained, “Today we conducted the very fun auction all morning while also filming LPBW the entire time.” He also shared a pic of him and Caryn doing an “on the fly interview explaining all the exciting happenings.”

Pumpkin Season on Roloff Farms

Fans of the Little People, Big World show wait for the Roloff Farms Pumpkin Season every year. And, this year, the show goes on. So if you hope for it, yes, it’s on the cards again. According to an earlier post by Matt, yes Amy will be there. Actually, she’s around and will assist with the booked tours. For now, he and Caryn ducked off to Arizona for a quick weekend away before returning “to the farm next week to finish setting up the final touches on our pumpkin patch.”

What do you think about the show returning for a new season? Are you hoping we’ll see more of Tori Roloff, who’s expecting a little girl? Are you happy that Matt Roloff confirmed they already started filming? Sound off your thoughts in the comments below.

Amy Roloff Said Season 15 of ‘Little People, Big World’ Will Start Filming Soon

It’s hard to believe Little People, Big World has been on television for nearly a decade and a half. A ton has changed for the Roloffs since it all began, too. While Matt and Amy Roloff began the show as a married couple sharing what life was like raising four kids and owning their family farm as little people, the show has shifted dramatically with time. Nowadays, Matt and Amy are divorced, and three of their four children are no longer featured on the show — yet viewers are staying more engaged than ever.

So, will Little People, Big World press on for yet another season? According to Amy, the show shall go on despite any family rifts. Here’s what she said.

Amy made a life-changing decision at the end of the last season

The last season of LPBW was seriously controversial, as we saw Amy making one of her biggest decisions yet. While Matt and Amy have been divorced for years, the two decided to still live on the Roloff Farms property together on opposite sides. And while Amy loved the farmhouse her children grew up in, living in it by herself just wasn’t working for her anymore. As she said on the show, “The farm worked for me because we had two people making it happen. I can’t do it on my own.”

For this reason, she chose to sell her portion of the farm to Matt. On Instagram, he further explained that they’re working on Amy’s schedule for moving, too. When she’s ready to buy a home and move out, the two will work together to complete the process of her being removed from the farm deed.

She verified that Season 15 of LPBW is happening

Since Amy made it known she was no longer going to be on Roloff Farms, long-time LPBW fans may wonder if the show will carry on. The good news is that according to Amy on a recent Facebook Live video, the Roloffs are already gearing up for the next season. “We are getting ready, I believe, to start filming Season 15,” she said. “Can you believe it, you guys? Season 15. No wonder I’m crazy, being on a reality show this long!” she joked.

As for what’s in store, Amy didn’t have too much to share — but it seems her mission to find a new home and move off of Roloff Farms property will be recorded. “I think there’s still a journey,” she added. And Amy also said that she hopes viewers who are empty-nesters, divorcees, or anyone going through a significant change in their lives will be able to relate to her story as well.

What other news will be featured on the new season?

It’s not just Amy’s search for a new home that will be featured on the next season of LPBW, either. Zach and Tori Roloff are a fan-favorite couple who have big news of their own. While fans are obsessed with their toddler son, Jackson, Tori also recently announced she’s pregnant with a baby girl. We’re hoping the next season of the show will feature how they’re preparing for their second child due this November.

Jeremy, Zach’s twin brother, and his wife, Audrey, are also preparing for their second child — though the couple chose to remove themselves from LPBW. We may get glimpses of them here and there, though we’re much more likely to see more of Matt, Amy, Zach, and Tori. And as far as Jacob Roloff is concerned, he was the first to depart from the show and has been outspoken about his choice, so we doubt we’ll see his wedding in any capacity, either.

Either way, we’re all excited for another season of the Roloffs!

Little People, Big World has been a record-breaking success for TLC.

We mean this literally:

Last June, after a dozen years on the air, the program broke the Guinness World Record for the most episodes of a family-focused reality television show in small screen history.

Moreover, Amy Roloff recently soared past one million Instagram followers and Audrey and Jeremy (who, granted, left the series last summer) are the authors of a best-selling relationship memoir.

We say all of this to make the following point:

Little People, Big World is very popular.

Millions of people have an interest in Amy Roloff, Matt Roloff and their offspring — and yet there had been some doubt as to whether the show would be returning for a new season at some point in the season.

Thankfully, however, we’re here to put that doubt to rest.

At a book signing in Grand Rapids, Michigan on Thursday night, Amy said very clearly that Little People, Big World has been renewed for another season.

The beloved reality star did not name a premiere date or cite the number of episodes ordered by TLC, but she did hint that she’s under contract for another two years and quipped:

“My retirement fund needs help!”

Amy dropped a handful of other nuggets during her chat at the event (e.g. Audrey is due on January 8; she hopes Jeremy one day takes over the farm; she isn’t getting married any time soon), all of which we’ll compile in an upcoming post.

But for now fans can rest assured that, despite concerns over how Matt and Amy aren’t getting along … and therefore they may not want to film together… or that executives may axe the series due to this tension…

… it is, indeed, coming back with new episodes.

Little People, Big World premiered in 2006.

It chronciles the lives of Amy and Matt Roloff and has continued to do so even after their divorce in 2016 after 27 years as husband and wife.

One of their sons, Jacob, walked away from filming about three years ago, while Audrey and Jeremy Roloff decided to move on in 2018.

But third son, Zach, and his wife Tori, along with their precious son Jackson, are still very much at the forefront of nearly every episode — as is the relationship between Amy and Matt, ex-spouses who work together on the family farm.

“I did not want to do the show, but sometimes you have to take that step outside your box,” Amy said during her Grand Rapids appearance, adding:

“I was unsure and afraid and intimidated by how other people would respond.”

Clearly, however, all these years later, the risk Amy took has paid off.

Not that it’s been an easy journey.

In her new book, Amy says that Matt betrayed her in their marriage with the way he acted toward his current girlfriend, Caryn Chandler, who worked previously as a manager on the farm.

There are clearly some bitter feelings here.

How will Amy’s critiques of her ex-husband play out down the line? How will this public flogging affect their interactions on air?

We don’t know.

We’re simply psyched over the confirmation that we’ll soon be able to find out!

Little People, Big World star Amy Roloff is still adapting to her new life in her new house. It’s a huge change for her after decades of living on over 33 acres of land on Roloff Farms. So, of course, she’s experiencing mixed emotions as she settles into her new digs.

Adjusting from farm life to a subdivision in the burbs no doubt takes time. Here’s what Amy has to say about her plans for 2020 and when her hit series Little People, Big World returns to TLC.

Little People, Big World: Latest on Amy Roloff Settling Into Her New House

Overall, the Little People, Big World matriarch is excited about recent changes. In fact, she’s doing things in her new house to bring her peace. For instance, cooking for her loved ones brings her joy. Recently, she hosted Christmas dinner for family. Then, this weekend, she made a cozy brunch for herself and fiance Chris Marek.

Little People, Big World’s Amy Roloff admits this is a big transition. But, she’s adjusting to her new surroundings. Having neighbors so nearby is a new experience. However, she likes her new space and looks forward to making it a home. Everything will just take time. However, she won’t have to do it alone. She’s got her rescue pup Felix by her side as well as future husband Chris.

LPBW: TLC Star Gushes Over Chris Marek

Little People, Big World alum Amy Roloff credits her fiance Chris for all his help. Recall, he’s a Realtor so he was the one who found her new place. Additionally, he’s been her rock as she transitions from the farmhouse and her former life. Plus, he’s been doing lots of projects on her to-do list.

Also, he’s keeping the Little People, Big World celeb company as she sorts and purges her belongings collected over the 30 plus years she lived on the farm with Matt Roloff. Amy says she couldn’t have done this move without him by her side. She’s thankful he’s in her life.

Little People, Big World Update: Amy Roloff Hints New Season Air-date

Amy Roloff confirms she’s filmed scenes for Little People, Big World. And now she revealed her move off the farm features in the new season. However, LPBW fans are anxious to know when that kicks off. According to Amy, the new season should start this Spring.

In addition to Amy Roloff’s move, we can also expect to see Tori Roloff’s pregnancy and the birth of Lilah Ray Roloff. Since the last few seasons debuted in April, it looks like we should see all-new LPBW episodes in less than three months.
