'My Big Fat Fabulous Life', the series began as Whitney Way Thore's road to fitness in 2015. Since then the show has deviated from its path and audiences have seen Whitney experience a number of highs and lows including moving out of her house in Greensboro. She moved to Charlotte, North Carolina, to be closer to her date who later turned into her business partner, Ryan Andreas. 

The show also explored her bonds with people close to her, for instance, her relationship with her best friend Buddy Bell. The pair went from BFFs to romantic partners and even though they've slept with each other, they strictly maintain that they are platonic now. Whitney's friends Tal, Todd, Heather and Ashley also make appearances with the rest of her friends. For the past couple of seasons, Chase Severino was also a part of the series. He was introduced to Whitney by Andreas and the two went on to date and become engaged and the messy breakup was also aired in the recently concluded Season 8. The reunion episode aired last week and audiences are left wondering if the show will make a comeback for another stint on TLC. If you're wondering the same, continue reading below to know all about Season 9.

Season 9 of 'My Big Fat Fabulous Life' looks extremely promising as Whitney seems to have moved on from her cheating ex- Chase. During season 9 we will see Whitney engaging in a long-distance, cross-continental relationship with a mysterious French man! Aside from Whitney's romantic life, we will also get a peek into her work front, as her virtual fitness business with friend Jessica is thriving. 

 Whitney moves back to her hometown of Greensboro, NC means she’s closer to family and friends. In fact, Buddy is actually living at her house, but he spends the majority of time at his new girlfriend’s place. Whitney is exploring a new relationship of her own, as an online flirtation buds with a man who lives in Paris—the two met while Whitney was taking virtual French lessons, but long distance, especially cross-continental, is never easy, so the two of them are working to figure out exactly what they have. Whitney is also pursuing her goal of receiving her personal training certification, but she soon finds that anti-fat prejudices make it hard to develop a client base. Another dream of Whitney’s—motherhood—remains intact, but her journey is filled with challenges. Meanwhile, living in her hometown means Whitney can spend more time with her parents, but after taking them to receive their second vaccine shot, her mom takes a nasty spill, further tweaking her already-strained back. As the season progresses, Whitney and her gang are fully vaccinated and the world is opening back up, meaning the possibilities are seemingly endless; celebratory trips ensue, but one big question remains: will Whitney get the opportunity to meet her Frenchman in person?



The first episode of Season 9 of 'My Big Fat Fabulous Life' titled 'Big Fat French Crush' features Whitney looking forward to life after quarantine, but Buddy may have abandoned her for his new girlfriend. When Whitney develops a crush on a Parisian man, her friends worry about her getting into another long distance relationship.




Whitney Way Thore, Buddy Bell, Heather Sykes, Ashley Baynes, Tal Fish and Todd Beasley will all make an appearance if and when the series returns for Season 9. Whitney's parents Barb and Glenn will also make an appearance.
