When will '16 and Recovering' Season 2 return? Here's what to expect when show on drug abuse is back on MTV
The show followed the triumphs and tragedies of students at Northshore Recovery School in Boston and documented their journey of working toward graduation while living with substance use
'16 and Recovering' aired its final episode on Tuesday, September 22, night on MTV. The show was announced in August and started airing at the beginning of this month. The show was devised to honor National Recovery Month, a national observance that's celebrated every September with an aim to ease the dialogue around addiction and celebrate the gains of those in recovery.
'16 and Recovering' followed the triumphs and tragedies of students at Northshore Recovery School in Boston. The show documented the journey of students working toward graduation while living with substance use and mental health issues. The fourth and final episode of the show saw the students celebrating their graduation and being vocal about their gratitude towards everyone at the school: staff and fellow students included. The question now is if '16 and Recovering' returning for Season 2 is on the cards.
As of now, the network has not made any such announcements. However, the first season was a massive hit and people were able to assimilate the message the show was trying to highlight. Addiction and addicts are taboo topics in society, even now. The conversation around the subject might've been a little relaxed currently in comparison to the past, however, the stigma still exists and society doesn't back down on a chance to shun someone suffering from the ordeal. This show managed to offer a very raw account of what addicts go through and why they choose to fall back on drugs and relapse or overdose. The show did so without being ostentatious and it can be counted as one of those shows that needed to air on national TV and was bang on in its quest to spread awareness.
While fans await the announcement of Season 2 which they hopefully will after the shows resounding success, the network for now has announced the comeback of '16 and Pregnant'. The show initially premiered in 2009 with just six episodes and was on the air till 2014. Just like '16 and Recovering', this show aimed to tackle the conversation around teen pregnancies. A study by National Bureau of Economic Research in 2014, demonstrated a 5.7% reduction in teen births in the 18 months after the show's premiere. The comeback season of the show will have six episodes that will start airing on MTV starting on Tuesday, October 6, and here's all you need to know about it.
