Y'all better "redneckognize" that the Thompson family isn't going anywhere anytime soon.
Breakout reality hit series Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, which follows young pageant queen Alana Thompson and her family, has been picked up for additional episodes by TLC, the network announced today.
If that news wasn't enough to make you want to cheer (or cry), this next nugget of information might: TLC has also ordered three holiday specials!
Yes, that's right. You can now spend Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas with June, Sugar Bear and the rest of the gang, as all three holidays will be part of the show's "Holladay" specials. (Finally, the perfect excuse to ignore your own family on Christmas!)
Since its debut in August, Here Comes Honey Boo Boo has become something of a pop-culture phenomenon and has averaged 2.3 million viewers per episode.
The first half of the season ends tonight at 10 p.m. with a special one-hour episode.
