Trailer for New 'Teen Mom' Season Shows a Dramatic Finish (VIDEO)

MTV's original Teen Mom is entering its final season on June 12. The new trailer was just released and it looks like it's going to be another emotional roller coaster with very high highs and very low lows. The original cast -- Maci Bookout, Farrah Abraham, Amber Portwood, and Catelynn Lowell -- is all coming back for one last hurrah, and for fans, this is going to be a sad season, indeed.

Say what you like about MTV's Teen Mom, but those of us who have watched from the beginning have become attached. We have followed and cried with them. We have watched Maci, Farrah, Amber, and Catelynn succeed, fail, and grow more and more as people. With the exception of Amber (unfortunately), every one of the girls has done well, pushed herself, and defied many stereotypes. It's sad to see them go.

Much as it makes us sad, for the girls, it's probably time. Enough time has passed for them to grow enormously as people -- and grow chronologically as well. None of the "girls" are really girls anymore. They are all women in their 20s.

The show has changed their lives almost as much as becoming a mom did, I'm sure. They are famous now and with that came scrutiny and criticism and judgment. There were tabloid photos, rumors, and cattiness. But the best part of the show was always how real the original girls were and how much we care.

These four women are all fascinating in their own ways. I hope that even as the show fades in our collective memory, MTV will update us as the women mature and the babies grow.

No matter what negative things have been written about them, in the end, we all want to see these women prosper and be happy. 

So long original Teen Mom cast (gulp) and bring it, final season!

Does this make you sad?
