The Show Is to Return According to this Article

19 Kids coming back.

According to the article that seems to only quote older material, the show is returning.  There have been sightings of the Duggars filming two new episodes, but so far nothing official from TLC that I've found.

Inquisitr is running with it, too. And another.
