'Mama June: Family Crisis' Season 4 premiered on Friday night, and there was a lot of drama caused by Mama June, but you know what was the unbelievable part? She wasn't there for any of it. In the premiere episode, Alana Thompson aka Honey Boo Boo and Lauryn Shannon aka Pumpkin revealed that they hadn't heard back from Mama June ever since she got arrested for possessing drugs. 

The family is trying their best to cope with Mama June spiraling into drug addiction, her abusive relationship with boyfriend Geno and her arrest for the possession for drugs. They are worried that she will end up in prison and face years of sentencing if she continues to go down the same road, and not return back to the family. 

With Mama June missing, her eldest daughter, Pumpkin, and husband Josh have taken custody of Alana, Pumpkin's sister and taking care of her along with their young daughter Ella. At the same time, Alana's dad Sugar Bear and his wife Jennifer are claiming to be looking out for Alana. 

When Pumpkin and Alana go over to Gina's (manager) house in LA, Sugar Bear and Jennifer surprise the sisters by coming there too. Jennifer and Sugar Bear are trying to get custody of Alana from Pumpkin. 

With Pumpkin and Alana not excited about Sugarbear and Jennifer being in LA, fans on Twitter share their thoughts affirming that they are glad that Alana has Pumpkin looking out for her. "#MamaJune #Alana some of us really care what's going on. Alana, thank God you have Pumpkin and Josh. Jennifer isn't the answer, she will hold Alana hostage, just cause she can," a fan wrote. 

"Josh and Pumpkin are the most mature people on the show while being two of the youngest! Y’all are doing a great job! #MamaJune," a fan said. Another added, "Pumpkin has always been a great sister." 

"Pumpkin and Ella have became my favorite people on this show. I hope josh and pumpkin keep custody of Alana. Anything else would just hurt that child more. #MamaJune," a fan said. Another shared, "Never saw the day Pumpkin would be the most responsible and reliable one in the family! #MamaJune." 

"I'm watching #MamaJune and 1st off Jennifer isn't Alana's mother and Sugar Bear hasn't been there a lot in the last few years. Pumpkin is who she is comfortable with so why in the hell would Jennifer say 'We may have to rethink this custody agreement'. B*tch who are you to her??" a fan wrote. 

'Mama June: Family Crisis' Season 4 will premiere on March 27 on WeTv. Check your local listings for more information.
