Duggar docuseries producers reveal they are already discussing a second season
Get ready for even more intimate details about the Duggars to be revealed – as producers of the brand new Amazon Prime Video docuseries about the family have just revealed they’re already considering making a second season.
The streaming service released the four-part, bombshell show Shiny Happy People: Duggar Family Secrets on June 2, which, as the title promised, did indeed expose some of the family’s deepest, darkest secrets.
Now, the people behind the series have confirmed that they’re already talking about dropping a part two as there’s a lot more to discover.
“A thousand percent yes, we’re open to another season, a few episodes, whatever it may be,” executive producer Blye Faust told me. The sun recently.
Blye Faust, the executive producer of Shiny Happy People: Duggar Family Secrets, said the team behind the docuseries is “one thousand percent… open to another season.”
Jill Duggar, 32, and her husband Derick Dillard, 34, were among the family members featured in the docuseries Shiny Happy People: Duggar Family Secrets
The show aims to “expose the truth beneath the healthy Americana surface of reality TV’s favorite megafamily.”
“There’s a lot, as you can see, that we haven’t started yet. There are still many rabbit holes to be dug.”
A slew of Duggar family members spoke out through interviews on the series, including Jill Duggar, 32, her husband, Derick Dillard, 34, her cousin Amy Duggar, 36, and her paternal aunt, Deanna Duggar, 60.
Blye added that she hoped even more members of the Duggar clan would participate if they made a second season, particularly 29-year-old Jinger, who recently released an explosive memoir titled Becoming Free Indeed: My Story Of Disentangling Faith From Fear.
“If she’d be willing, I think we’d like to talk to Jinger. She has a lot to say,” Blye continued.
“She has her own experience that is different from Jill’s or any of her other siblings. She is a very smart person who has come up with something that really struck a chord.
“So yeah, I think we would. We’d love to talk to her if she’d like.
Throughout the documentary, Jill, the fourth child of the 19 Duggar children, made a series of shocking accusations about her parents, Jim Bob, 57, and Michelle, 56.
Among the allegations, Jill describes how her parents abused her and her siblings by tricking them into signing contracts and forcing them to participate in the family’s myriad reality shows against their will – and without paying them.
Blye added to Jinger (pictured), 29, that the team would “like” to interview her for the next episode of Shiny Happy People

Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar released a statement disapproving of the docuseries ahead of its June 2 release
She also described the horrific trauma she suffered growing up as a member of the “cult-like” religious group known as the Institute of Basic Life Principles in the docuseries.
And according to Blye, she wants to delve even further into IBLP’s dark underbelly next season.
‘I think [it should focus] probably a little bit less about the Duggars and probably more about some of those other things that we’re just starting to scratch at,” she said.
“We actually have a lot more that’s already in the can and still on the cutting room floor.”
On the eve of the docuseries’ release, Jim Bob and Michelle posted a statement on their website that read in part, “Like other families, ours has experienced life’s joys and heartbreaks, only in a very public form.”
They continued, “We have always believed that the best chance to mend damaged relationships or to reconcile differences is through love in a private setting.
“We love every member of our family and will continue to do everything we can to maintain a good relationship with everyone.”
