"Kate Plus 8"
Season Premiere Monday, July 10 at 10 PM ET/PT on TLC
Kate and the kids are back with all-new episodes, featuring a few of the most exciting Gosselin-get-togethers of the year, including a very special sextuplet birthday bash. From toddlers to now teenagers, viewers have watched their childhoods unfold on-screen and now get to see them continue in their adventures as young adults!
Kicking off with a spooky Halloween spectacular and culminating in the sextuplets’ 13th birthday, there is never a dull moment for this family. In the premiere episode, the team prepares for Halloween as the kids try to convert the old family barn into a haunted house. Complete with creepy foods, a bonfire and a bunch of hand-made costumes, plenty of energy and teamwork is required from the whole family. With stress levels reaching an all-time high, will everything be done in time for the party?
Then, Kate and the kids take a ski trip to Vermont for spring break, and this vacation would not be complete without games, cold weather fun and an unfortunate trip to the hospital. In an effort to learn how to ski and snowboard, the kids hit the slopes while a hesitant Kate watches from afar. But Kate’s worries are justified when one of her kids takes a tumble. Will Kate finally face her lifelong fear and learn to ski?
Finally, in a much-anticipated milestone moment, the sextuplets celebrate their 13th birthday with a “glamping” and camping extravaganza! The girls elect for a day of pampering and fancy food while the boys choose to rough it in the wild. During their day of celebration, Kate takes the time to reflect on the growth of her children as she watches her glamorous girls become women and her adventurous boys become men. Thinking farther ahead, Kate also begins to contemplate what life will look like when her children go off to college. But before Kate gets swept up in the emotion of it all, she must get a helping hand from some of her friends to pull off an ambitious split-themed function and hope that everything goes according to plan.
