DESCRIPTION:
(from TLC's press release, October 2016) For Kate Gosselin and her brood of eight, life has changed drastically since beginning their television journey ten years ago. The new, eight-episode season celebrates this milestone and many others beginning Tuesday, November 22nd at 10/9c. From days filled with changing diapers to the challenges of raising tweens, viewers have followed the Gosselin family through the ups-and-downs of raising eight children. The new season begins with a look back over the years with never-before seen footage and new interviews with the family. From meal time and school day prep to one-on-one time with mom and sibling rivalries, Kate and her kids have adjusted to fit the growing needs of the tight-knit unit. They discuss some of their fondest moments and also share how close they have become. Even after all the years, family has always been the glue that's held them together. Throughout the season, Kate and the kids are in for even more celebrations. The sextuplets turn twelve, and Kate plans an epic boys vs. girls scavenger hunt in their town. It's a race to the finish to see which team gets first place. The sextuplets aren't the only ones with birthdays, though - Mady and Cara turn sixteen, and Kate has her hands full with two teenage daughters that will soon be driving. In the midst of all the birthday excitement, Kate plans a few exciting trips for the family to New Orleans, the Poconos and the beach for their summer vacation. From helping with hurricane relief in New Orleans to tubing in the Poconos, there's plenty of family fun with hilarious and cringe-worthy moments. To cap off the season, Kate and the kids host a family game night full of trivia from their ten years on television. While no one wants to be on Kate's team, the family enjoys a night full of not-so-friendly competition.
