MTV TAKES VIEWERS BACK INSIDE THE LIVES OF FOUR UNFORGETTABLE TEEN MOTHERS IN THE GROUNDBREAKING DOCUMENTARY SERIES "TEEN MOM"

Maci, Amber, Catelynn and Farrah Face Their Toughest Challenges Yet in New Season Premiering Tuesday, July 20 at 10pm ET/PT

New York, NY - July 7, 2010 - MTV's thought-provoking docu-series, "Teen Mom" returns this summer as the four young mothers who captivated audiences in season one come back to share their stories as they enter a new chapter of motherhood. Beginning on Tuesday, July 20, 2010 at 10pm ET/PT, Maci, Amber, Catelynn and Farrah experience all of the heartbreak, joy, and struggles that come with raising a child when you're still a child yourself. Millions of viewers were along for the ups and downs each girl faced as pregnant teens on "16 and Pregnant" and the first season of "Teen Mom" - now they'll watch as these young moms strive to give their children the best life possible while facing their toughest challenges yet - from rocky relationships and finding new love to family disputes and pregnancy scares.

As season two of "Teen Mom" returns, viewers quickly see that despite moments of joy and little ones saying "momma" for the first time, things are as difficult as ever for these teen mothers. After breaking up with her fianc� Ryan, Maci finds herself back at home with Bentley, going to community college full-time, and in a trying battle with Ryan over child support. It's only when Maci falls in love with someone new that she starts to build a new life for her and Bentley - but Ryan won't make things easy.

Following a domestic dispute with her mother, Farrah, a single mom, is forced to move out on her own and works to make ends meet without help from her family. She focuses on school and work, and setting up a better future for her and Sophia, all while working to heal her relationship with her mother. When she finally thinks she has a solution to her financial problems, a drastic change of events makes her realize she may not have all the answers after all.

Meanwhile, Amber is struggling to get her GED after dropping out of high school to raise Leah. After a pregnancy scare, Amber and her boyfriend Gary find themselves getting along fine- until Gary reveals that he wants a break so he can date another girl. Amber and Gary's relationship quickly becomes an emotional rollercoaster, and Amber fights to keep her family together.

Although Catelynn and her fianc� Tyler know they made the right decision when they chose adoption for their daughter Carly, they're still dealing with the grief and emotional fallout almost a year later. A senior in high school now, Catelynn is still living at Tyler's house. When he asks her to move back in with her mom, she quickly realizes that he is still grieving over the adoption and needs his space. Meanwhile, her mom, who never approved of the adoption, continues to lash out making Catelynn's senior year of high school even tougher. Not to mention, Catelynn and Tyler's relationship gets rocky when he learns Catelynn lied about something in her past.

According to the National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy, one out of every ten children in the United States is born to a teenage mother and about one quarter of all teen moms have a second child within two years, making it difficult to get an education or escape poverty. Additionally, children born to teen parents are more likely to repeat the cycle and become teen parents themselves. Despite the availability of sex education and access to contraception, the United States continues to have the highest rate of teen pregnancy and teen birth in the entire developed world.

Viewers can visit MTV and the Kaiser Family Foundation's www.itsyoursexlife.com to learn more about the realities of being a teen parent and receive expert advice on pregnancy prevention. In addition, Sex Etc. and the National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy will also provide information.

Viewers can also go to MTV.com for sneak peeks of the show including bonus/extended scenes and exclusive interviews with the moms.

Additionally, its series debut was MTV's strongest series launch in over a year and averaged a 2.3 P12-34 rating. During season one, "Teen Mom" ranked number one in its time period versus all television competition among F12-34 and number one compared to all cable competitors among P12-34.
