Teen Mom OG 2020 is going to be unlike anything fans have seen before. With new cast members and tons of drama, there will be plenty to keep viewers interested.
With Farrah Abraham and Bristol Palin out, fans will be watching for the latest on Amber Portwood, Cheyenne Floyd, Maci Bookout, Catelynn Lowell and the return of Mackenzie McKee, who fans of the Teen Mom franchise are already familiar with from 16 and Pregnant and Teen Mom 3.
She joined for the first time last season, where fans watched her deal with a cheating scandal and her mother’s battle Stage 4 lung cancer. Angie Douthit died in December after a two-year battle.

Welcoming The Return of MacKenzie To ‘OG’
Mackenzie is again back after MTV canceled Teen Mom 3 in 2013. During that time, she graduated from high school, married Josh McKee and is the mother of three children: Gannon, 7, Jaxie, 5, and Broncs Weston, 3.
Since last season, Mackenzie has had an on-again, off-again relationship with her husband and has also been mourning the devastating loss of her mother, Angie.
Months before her mother’s death, Mackenzie sat down with Angie for some advice about marriage after Josh cheated.
“I truly believed that nothing like this would ever happen. It is the most stressful devastating situation,” she tells her mother in the 2020 premiere. “I cried myself to bed because of how humiliated I am right now. I do not see us being together. To me, it’s worth divorce.”
With her grandchildren in mind, Angie suggested MacKenzie reconsider her decision. “You guys built too much up together to throw it all away,” Angie says. “Too many young couples get divorced over stupid stuff like this and children are just messed up. I see it too much and I want to protect my grandkids.”
Amber Regrets The July Incident
Last year was a whirlwind for Amber Portwood. In July, she got into a heated altercation with ex-boyfriend Andrew Glennon, the father of their son. He was holding their baby, James, in a locked room when she allegedly hit the door three times with a machete.
She was charged with domestic battery, intimidation and lost custody of their son. She regained visits with him after a temporary restriction.
Throughout her legal battles, ex Gary Shirley and his wife, Kristina Anderson, have stayed by her side. The Teen Mom OG stars, who first appeared on 16 and Pregnant in 2009, share 11-year-old daughter, Leah, together.
“The No. 1 regret that I have is that I did not walk out of that house that night. Now I look back and I’m so ashamed because all I keep thinking about is, ‘Amber, you should have walked out of that house,’” she says. “There are limits to [what] someone with mental health disorders—there’s only so much somebody like me can handle and people like me will understand that.”
Amber has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder and borderline personality disorder.
Maci Fights For PCOS
Former Teen Mom OG seasons have heavily focused on Maci Bookout’s fractured relationship with ex-boyfriend Ryan Edwards, the father of her eldest son, Bentley. On the 2020 season of Teen Mom OG, fans will get to see Maci in a new light, where she is currently fighting to bring awareness and raise money for PCOS, also known as polycystic ovarian syndrome. A teaser for the new season shows Maci meeting with her congressman to get more funding for research into PCOS.
To see their stories unfold, don’t miss Teen Mom OG when it airs on MTV Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET.
