TLC orders four "Little People, Big World" specials

From World Screen:

SILVER SPRING, Md. -- The TLC series Little People, Big World, which originally aired on the network from 2006 to 2010, is being extended through four new specials featuring the Roloff family.

The series featured the stories of the Roloffs—husband and wife Matt and Amy and their children, Jeremy, Zach, Molly and Jacob—a family (pictured) comprised of little and average-height people. The first special will resolve the cliffhangers from the series finale. Production started this week, with a tentative launch slated for October.

"The response from the fans since Little People, Big World's finale has been overwhelming, asking how we're doing and what's the latest with the kids," said Matt and Amy Roloff. "These specials are going to be a great opportunity to share our family's updates with our fans from time to time through the year."

"Across six seasons, the Roloffs shared unfiltered access to their remarkable lives, and these specials are a great opportunity to update the TLC audience on their latest developments," added Amy Winter, the general manager of TLC. "Matt and Amy will always be part of our network's family and we know their fans will be excited to reconnect."
