My 600 Lb. Life, Season 8: Is the Show Renewed or Canceled?

My 600 Lb Life


My 600 Lb. Life, TLC’s hit reality series, has not yet been confirmed for a new season, according to Premiere Date. UPDATE, 12/12/2019: My 600 Lb Life will be returning to TLC on Wednesday, January 1, 2020, according to the network. You can catch all new episodes each Wednesday following the season premiere.

The My 600 Lb. Life Facebook page was casting for season 8 late last year, so it appears an eighth season may hopefully be in the works. The TLC series’ Facebook page was continuing to look for cast members as of December, 2018.

“Currently still casting for season 8! Please send a fb message or email for more info!!” the post reads, adding: “The minimum weight requirement is 600lbs.” There have been several follow-up posts since then, with the page reminding fans that casting was still open for the new season.

So when will season 8 debut, if it is renewed? While no official release date for season 8 of the show has been revealed yet, previous seasons have premiered in January each year, meaning the upcoming season will likely be released sometime in January, 2020, if/when it is confirmed.

For those who are new to the series, the TLC description of the show reads: “Follow participants as we document the life-saving, but traumatic experience of surgery, the ups and downs of struggling with addiction and dependence, and the inevitable impact that change has on personal relationships.”
