'Mama June: Road to Redemption' is upon us and we cannot help but wonder what more the Shannon-Thompson households have to offer. From arrests to drug use and drastic fitness transformations, the audience has seen it all.

While we cannot say for sure what the season holds for us, the title hints towards an emotional journey aimed at rebuilding relationships. The premise is apt given how June Shannon left things with her daughters before checking in to a rehabilitation center. She may be clean now and working towards a healthy life but will that be enough to mend a fractured bond? Read on to know more.

June Edith 'Mama June' Shannon

While quarantining and waiting for court dates, June packed on a few pounds, which she is aware of and is working towards losing them. She follows a strict diet and has a workout regime in place. While her fitness journey will form an integral part of her narrative, 'Road to Redemption' will also see her make attempts at restoring relationships she once shared with her daughters.


Will she succeed? Only time will tell because in 'Family Crisis' last year she had expressed an interest in ironing out the differences and starting afresh. But her efforts were washed out when she failed her drug test.

Eugene Edward 'Geno' Doak

Geno has been with June every step of the way. They did drugs together and got rid of the habit together. They piled on extra kilos together and are now collectively working towards shedding all of it. Good boyfriend? It would be best if June answered that. The drug-addled couple has been in trouble and that may not have changed.


Ahead of the season premiere, the network has dropped a clip where June confirms that they could be serving jail time. "I’m facing a couple of years," she said and added: "Geno’s facing 10 years. We may not even get to see each other. I’m kind of like freaking the hell out. We don’t know what to expect in the morning.” In March 2019, the two were arrested at an Alabama gas station "for possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia."

Lauryn 'Pumpkin' and Joshua 'Josh' Efird 

Lauryn continues to be skeptical of her mother's sobriety journey. In recently-released footage shared by The Sun, the young mother said: "Mama June has been trying to contact me ever since she got out of rehab. And I've seen on social media that she's telling everybody that she's sober," and continued: "But then again, I don't believe her. She's still with Geno so that probably means still underneath Geno's control." Lauryn and June have been at loggerheads for a long time but what served as the final straw the latter selling off their family home without so much as informing anyone. This forced Lauryn and the rest of the family to live out of a motel. Even so, she tried to make amends with June but lost faith when she lied about consuming drugs. With all this, it's not hard to imagine why Lauryn is not keen on forgiving her mother. 


Josh too is in the same team when it comes to doubting June's intentions. He didn't take it well when June sold off the house without discussing it with them. That move left them homeless. However, that is not his only plotline. Josh and Pumpkin will buttheads over cheating rumors. Since he stays away from home for most of the week, Pumpkin suspects him of seeing someone else. How will this end? Not pretty is all we can say at this point.

Alana 'Honey Boo Boo' Thompson

Honey Boo Boo struggles with June's absence and social media trolling only makes it worse. For weeks, she has been called out for wearing false lashes and makeup. Fortunately, Honey Boo Boo seems to know how to shut keyboard warriors down. Recently, she took to Instagram to share a photo of hers wearing makeup and false lashes with a caption that read: "Folks will hate about anything."


While her being a social media influencer could be a possible storyline, let's not dismiss the fact that she continues to be emotional about June. And therefore, one can expect a heartbreaking reunion scene between the two. How or when that'll happen is something we'll have to wait and watch.

Mike 'Sugar Bear' and Jennifer Thompson

It's trouble in paradise for this couple. From early reports, we know that a "near-death experience" sends Sugar Bear looking for Honey Boo Boo. His only hope is he and his daughter can have a healthy, nurturing relationship. But that got thrown out of the window last year when Honey Boo Boo refused to leave Pumpkin to stay with Sugar Bear and Jennifer. The pair had filed for full custody of the minor but it didn't quite work out. Will they be able to put the past behind them and start from the start? Let's hope so.
