Whitney Thore Dances Her Way Into A Season Two Of My Big Fat Fabulous Life On TLC
Last Two Episodes of Season One Air Back-to-Back on February 10 followed by Intimate Q&A Special with Whitney
TLC is living large, announcing today that it has ordered 16 additional episodes of its newest hit series MY BIG FAT FABULOUS LIFE. The series, which has averaged 1.2 million P2+ viewers to date during its first season, follows self-proclaimed fat girl, Whitney Thore and her family and friends as she navigates life, love and dance in a world that judges people for their size. Now, with her larger-than-life attitude, Whitney’s back for a second season, with production slated to begin early next month in Whitney’s hometown of Greensboro, North Carolina. New episodes return this summer.
TLC closes the current season in supersize fashion on Tuesday, February 10 with the final two half-hour episodes airing at 10/9c followed by MY BIG FAT FABULOUS LIFE: THE SKINNY, an intimate sit down with Whitney hosted by TLC executive producer Mike Kane. The half hour special will look back at the full season, with Whitney sharing insights on all the big fat fabulous moments and answering provocative questions from diehard fans.
But before Whitney bares it all, viewers can catch the much-anticipated final episodes. At 10/9c, Whitney attempts to help her friend Ashley find love by creating a less-than-honest online dating profile that ultimately lands them in some very hot water. Directly following at 10:30/9:30c, Whitney’s dance career hits an all-time high as she prepares to lead a giant dance class. Meanwhile, she and Buddy go house hunting. But just as things are looking up, devastating news puts Whitney’s future in peril.
