Brace yourselves — there may not be a Season 5 of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo! Following allegations that Mama June Shannon is romantically involved with a convicted sex offender, the show’s future is in jeopardy.
“TLC is not currently in production on Here Comes Honey Boo Boo,” the network said in a statement. “We are very concerned about this new information and are reassessing the future of the series.”
According to TMZ, Mama June is dating a man who was once convicted of child molestation involving one of her relatives who was only 8-years-old at the time. Since he has been released from prison, he’s on the registered sex offenders list in Georgia, where Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson lives with Mama June and the rest of their family.
June separated from longtime partner Sugar Bear in September. Before these claims, they were seen filming the reality show, and the Here Comes Honey Boo Boo Facebook page even announced that a new season would be coming.
