MTV'S "TEEN MOM 2" TAKES VIEWERS ON AN INTENSE ROLLERCOASTER OF HIGHS AND LOWS IN DRAMATIC SECOND SEASON

Chelsea, Jenelle, Kailyn and Leah Return as they Struggle to Balance Life, Love and Parenthood in Thought-Provoking Docu-Series Premiering December 6, 2011 at 10pm ET/PT

New York, NY - November 10 2011 - MTV today announced that the hit docu-series "Teen Mom 2," returns on Tuesday, December 6 at 10pm ET/PT. The groundbreaking series takes viewers inside the emotional journeys of four young mothers as they face some of their biggest challenges and decisions yet. From new beginnings to shattered relationships, the dramatic season catches up with Chelsea, Jenelle, Kailyn and Leah as they try to navigate their way through life with toddlers in tow.

The second season of "Teen Mom 2" quickly takes viewers on an intense rollercoaster of highs and lows. As their babies take their first steps, these young moms struggle to balance life, love, and independence while striving to give their children the best life possible. Since giving birth to Aubree, Chelsea's life has been consumed with taking care of her daughter and trying, in vain, to make her tumultuous relationship with Aubree's father, Adam, succeed. She still hasn't graduated from high school, but Chelsea luckily has a strong network of support from friends and family to help her on the road to independence. As her emotional tug-of-war with Adam escalates, she finally gets the strength to call it quits, trying to move forward and focus on what's best for her and her daughter. Her friends and family just hope she can stay away from Adam for good this time.

A country girl who wears her heart on her sleeve, Leah is a former cheerleader from a small town and the mother of twin girls Alianna and Aleeah. Leah sacrificed everything her senior year in order to graduate, take care of her babies and try to make things work with her daughters' father, Corey. They've weathered many ups and downs as a couple, from trust issues to doctor visits for understanding daughter Ali's slow development. Just before the twins' first birthday, Leah and Corey made the ultimate commitment by becoming husband and wife. But soon after the honeymoon they realize that marriage isn't as easy as they'd hoped it would be.

Jenelle continues to reconcile the responsibilities of motherhood with her love of partying. With the birthfather of her son Jace out of the picture, Jenelle relies heavily on her mother Barbara. The two have an explosive relationship, which is amplified by the fact that Barbara has temporary custody of Jace. Through it all, Jenelle struggles to prove herself as a mom and responsible adult, but her party girl ways - and her trouble-maker boyfriend, Kieffer - keep leading her down the wrong path. When Jenelle and Keiffer get arrested, she must choose between changing her ways or continuing on a downward spiral that could quickly hit rock bottom.

Always a motivated young woman and focused mom, Kailyn is the mom of baby Isaac. Kailyn and Isaac's father Jo's relationship crumbled under the stress of balancing their lives and raising their child, and Kailyn moved out amidst their constant fighting. A romance with coworker Jordan begins to get more serious as she turns to him for emotional support during a bitter custody battle with Jo. Through it all, Kailyn keeps two jobs and goes to school full time, determined to better her situation for her son while navigating her complicated relationship with Jo and struggling to finally move out on her own.

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.

More information about sexual health issues affecting young people, including unintended pregnancy, is available at www.itsyoursexlife.com, a public information resource developed by MTV and the Kaiser Family Foundation. The National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy is working with the show to provide additional information.

Viewers can also go to MTV.com for sneak peeks of the show including bonus/extended scenes and exclusive interviews with the moms. In addition, SuChin Pak will once again host the "Teen Mom 2" after shows on MTV.com.

The first season of "Teen Mom 2" drew 4 million viewers each week - the largest audience of any "16 and Pregnant"/"Teen Mom" season to date. "Teen Mom 2" and "Teen Mom" are currently the year's #3 and #4 original cable series among viewers 12-34.* In addition to its ratings success, the franchise has been recognized by numerous organizations** as one of the most positive and influential sources of information on teen pregnancy, which is currently at the lowest rate ever recorded by the CDC.

* 2011 to date (Jan-Sep).
