"19 Kids and Counting" Season 9 is a reality docu-series on TLC that features the Duggars family, showing both the joys and challenges of life with a supersized brood.

The Duggars have dreams as big as their family and this season they are making them happen! Jim Bob and Michelle are starting a new business and the whole family is getting involved to plan the first-ever Duggar Family Flea Market. But when their best friends, the Bates, invite the Duggar girls for a mother/daughter camping trip, they can't resist mixing a little work and play! While roughing it in the wilds of Tennessee, the girl-talk turns to courtship. Will any of the girls have a big announcement to make? And Jim Bob and Michelle say an emotional goodbye to their oldest child as Josh and Anna chase their own dreams all the way to Washington, DC. With a new baby, a new house, and a new city to explore, will this young and growing Duggar family be able to cope with the missing support of the main Duggar clan?

Season 8

There's plenty to celebrate in the eighth season. In the premiere episode, the Duggars make an exciting announcement — Jessa and Ben are courting! Dating with the intent of marriage, Jessa and Ben refrain from kissing or holding hands and always have a chaperone on dates, phone calls and even text messages. Now that their courtship is official, the Duggar boys put Ben to the test, making sure he's ready to take care of their sister. Later, the tables are turned when Jessa visits Ben's hometown and gets hit with some serious questions during a double date with Ben's parents. And the whole family reflects on what it means that a Duggar daughter may soon be leaving the nest.

This season will explore a changing family dynamic as the Duggar children continue to grow up, with many of the older kids considering courtships. The four eldest Duggar girls — Jana, Jill, Jessa and Jinger — announce that they have written a book and the family attends Erin Bates' highly-anticipated wedding. Michelle spends one-on-one time with each of her children and the whole family visits Josh and Anna in Washington, DC. Throughout the season, cameras will check in on the DC-based Duggars as Anna begins to homeschool her growing brood and the young family goes on a fun ski outing for a day. Two of the Duggars make a special trip to Nepal and the youngest children prepare a surprise dinner theater talent show for Jim Bob and Michelle.

Season 9

Following Jill and Derick's exciting engagement earlier this summer, the new season picks up with the happy couple planning for their big day. Jim Bob and Michelle start the emotional journey of giving away their first daughter in marriage as Jill and Derick plan their rapidly approaching nuptials. From dress shopping to cake tasting, it's all hands on deck as the engaged pair prepare to say their "I dos" in front of more than 1,000 of their closest friends and family. But this happy occasion is bittersweet as the family starts to realize what giving away Jill will mean to their close-knit clan.

Also this season, Jessa and Ben continue to grow closer as their courtship takes an unexpected turn when Ben makes a move to live closer to Jessa. Jim Bob and Michelle celebrate 30 years of marriage as Jill and Derick prepare their new home together with the help of the family. The newly engaged couple also tends to Derick's mom Cathy as she bravely battles cancer. And after their first year in Washington, D.C., Josh, Anna and their three kids decide it may be time to make a few changes in their own growing family. Big changes are underway for a big family on this season.
