“Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” returns for its fourth season, and the first episode will deal with some serious family drama. On Tuesday, the official Facebook page for the show shared an exclusive video of Mama June helping her sister at a bakery. The first episode of the new season will also deal with Anna’s decision to move out and Mama June’s concerns about her daughter’s future.
The first episode, titled “3 Generations and 1 Pork Rind,” will show viewers how the family is handling Anna’s upcoming marriage, and Mama June is not thrilled about her decision to leave home. Anna became engaged to Michael Cardwell after a proposal involving pizza and her entire family. The couple’s wedding was in May, but fans will finally get the chance to see it this season on the show. The frugal affair featured her sisters as bridesmaids and included personal wedding vows.
Mama June decides that working at the bakery with her sister will help distract her from Anna, but this means Sugar Bear must handle the household chores. Viewers can expect the usual family drama as Alana “Honey Boo Boo” and the other children get involved. Meanwhile, June must quickly learn how to handle things at the bakery or face the consequences.
TLC was recently involved in a controversy involving “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” because the show aired uncensored in the United Kingdom. The network has apologized for allowing viewers to hear complete curse words without bleeping them out. One parent complained that a child was watching the show in the U.K. because it was not late at night and heard the inappropriate language, so regulators are angry. The network has promised it will not repeat the mistake seen in the U.K., and it has admitted human error was responsible for it.
