Mama June is back. But it's not a happy family reunion on Mama June: Family Crisis.

The new season of Mama June: From Not to Hot (now labeled Mama June: Family Crisis) premieres Friday, March 27 and features the Shannon family struggling to pick up the pieces following June Shannon's drug addiction—and arrests—with boyfriend Geno Doak.

"Mama said nothing's ever going to come between us," Alana Thompson (Honey Boo Boo) says in the new trailer. "I don't even know who she is anymore."

Mama June: Family Crisis sees Lauryn Shannon (Pumpkin) and husband Josh doing their best to keep the family together. They've taken custody of Alana and are raising her alongside their toddler Ella.

"I just don't think mama understands that everything she does affects all of us too," Lauryn says.

But after Alana begins to act out on social media, her father, Sugar Bear, and his wife Jennifer come calling to demand full custody.

Meanwhile, June's sister Joanne (Doe Doe) takes it upon herself to find June and separate her from Geno. But you can't help somebody who doesn't want it.

"I don't care how many rocks I have to find June; I'm not leaving Alabama until I do," Joanne says.

June does appear in the trailer, including a tense moment between her and Lauryn.

"Nobody knows what the real story is," June cries.

But it's not all heartbreak. The show will feature Alana's return to high school, Ella's baby pageant debut and family therapy moments with Dr. Ish.

In a press release for the new season, WE tv asks, "Will June finally hit her rock bottom and seek professional help? Can she return to the family as the ‘old June' they all miss terribly? Can love and belief in each other get them through a family crisis that is all too relatable to thousands of American families?"

Mama June: Family Crisis premieres Friday, March 27 at 9 p.m. on WE tv.
