'Teen Mom' Is Getting a Makeover -- in the UK

We've come to love our Teen Mom franchise over here in the states, and it looks like MTV UK has taken notice, because they're expanding the series across the pond. That's right -- Teen Mom UK is coming, and they're casting now.

We don't know too much so far, just that this is happening. MTV UK plans to air an eight-episode season sometime in the fall of 2016, and it will of course be focused on pregnant teens and/or teen moms.

MTV UK's Jill Offman said in a statement, "MTV UK has a great record of re-versioning hit shows from our sister channel in the US ... We turned Jersey Shore into Geordie Shore and smashed ratings records in the process."

She continued, "We'll use this expertise to give Teen Mom a fresh lease of life, combined with a unique British twist, which we're confident will have massive appeal to local audiences."

Dang, I'm going to have to figure out how to tune in ... all the drama of Teen Mom, plus British accents? Count me in!

Of course part of me wonders if Farrah Abraham is going to try to crash it ... she was part of Celebrity Big Brother UK, and is one of the Teen Mom originals, so I wouldn't put it past her to think her invitation to join got lost in the mail.
