Duggar Family Is Filming Once Again Much to Their Neighbors' Dismay

After 19 Kids and Counting got pulled off the air for Josh Duggar's molestation scandal, people have had definite opinions on whether the family should be back on TV or not. Apparently, neighbors are reporting that the Duggars are filming again, and they are not happy about it.

Even though Duggar sisters Jill Dillard and Jessa Seewald had their own three-part special late last year, putting the whole family back on TV isn't something that residents in the family's hometown of Springdale, Arkansas, want to see.

A source told Entertainment Tonight that they saw the family shopping with a film crew in tow. They revealed, "There is a lot of hate regarding the family. After all that has happened, this isn't the same family in many people's eyes."

After TLC canceled the show, things just went downhill for the Duggars when Josh was caught cheating on his wife Anna in the Ashley Madison hack. He admitted it, and also to struggling with addiction to pornography. He's been in a long-term treatment facility since last August, and it's unclear if he will be a part of whatever it is that the family is filming for.

Yet another source said that even though the show was canceled, the family is still under contract with TLC. Some of the family members' contracts apparently end in March, but we're not sure which ones. The insider said that TLC is likely interested in featuring more of the Duggar daughters, after Jill and Jessa: Counting On went so well.

Some of the other girls will likely be courting soon, and the network may be counting on viewer interest in watching that.

Personally, I'd still love to see a show about Jana and/or Anna making it on their own. Jana is famously unmarried at 26, and is often referred to as "Cinderella Duggar" for her loyalty to remaining a "stay at home daughter" and helping her mother care for her younger siblings. As for Anna -- she says she's still trying to work out her marriage to Josh, but I'd really love to see her grow as an independent woman.
