MTV'S "TEEN MOM 2" RETURNS FOR THE SECOND HALF OF SEASON FIVE ON A NEW NIGHT WEDNESDAY, JULY 16 AT 10:00 P.M. ET/PT

New York, NY (June 16, 2014) - MTV's groundbreaking docu-series, "Teen Mom 2" will return for the second half of season five on a new night, Wednesday, July 16 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT. This season, viewers will continue to follow Kailyn, Jenelle, Leah and Chelsea as they attempt to create control in their lives while navigating legal issues, heightened health problems and the lingering broken relationships with their families. Immediately following "Teen Mom 2," MTV will air its new docu-series "Virgin Territory" at 11:00 p.m. ET/PT.

This season Jenelle is pregnant with her second child while dealing with her son Jace's developing behavioral problems and overcoming obstacles in her relationship with Nathan as he faces jail time. Her tumultuous relationship with Nathan leads to constant arguments about his drinking and creates added stress on her relationship with her mom. Jenelle is now seeking to get control in her life before baby Kaiser is born.

After buying her first home, Chelsea is eager to create a comfortable life for her and daughter Aubree. Just when she thinks she has everything figured out, The Department of Labor charges Chelsea with violating its protocol, forcing her to put her work life on hold. She is now faced with the challenge of fighting the allegations to receive her aesthetician license, all while struggling to co-parent with her ex Adam as they continue to debate his visitation agreements.

Leah and Corey continue to tackle co-parenting while coping with their daughter Ali's health issues. Emotions heighten when Ali becomes more aware of her condition and Corey's insurance declines their request for Ali's wheelchair. The strain of taking care of three children, endless doctor visits and the effort put forth to maintain her marriage with Jeremy, causes Leah to seek help for anxiety. The medication she is prescribed to help cope with her stress has unexpected side effects that she must now face.

Now a mother of two, Kailyn is faced with the challenge of keeping her family together as she struggles to raise Isaac and baby Lincoln while her husband Javi is away at work. She continues to grapple with the idea of rebuilding the relationship with her estranged mom, while embarking on mending her broken relationships with Isaac's father, Jo, and Jo's girlfriend, Vee. When Isaac must stay with Jo for six weeks, it will be the longest Kailyn will ever be away from him, and she begins to rethink their visitation agreement.

Season five of "Teen Mom 2" will begin airing across MTV's international channels in July (check local listings).

The teen birth rate in the U.S. declined 36 percent between 2007 and 2013. Despite the steep decline in teen birth rates, more than 600,000 teenage girls in the U.S. still become pregnant each year and nearly one out of every ten children in the U.S. is born to a teenage mother. The vast majority of these pregnancies are unintended, and nearly one in six teen moms have a second child during their teen years. In a 2012 poll by the National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy, 77 percent of teens age 12-19 who have seen "16 and Pregnant" and "Teen Mom" say the shows "help teens better understand the challenges of pregnancy and parenting."

More information about sexual health issues affecting young people, including unintended pregnancy, is available at www.itsyoursexlife.com.
