There were rumors that 'My 600-lb Life' might not return for Season 11.
After Season 10 ended of My 600-lb Life, there was talk that the series might have reached its endpoint, especially after so many former stars have filed lawsuits against the show's production company, Megalomedia. The complaints range from allegations of exploitation and lack of medical care to claims of defamation and breach of contract.
In 2020, the family of Season 6 star James "LB" Bonner sued Megalomedia for their alleged involvement in LB's 2018 suicide, per Starcasm. The family cited “gross negligence” and claimed that the company backed out of several promises to LB, pressured him into filming when he wasn't prepared, and failed to provide him with mental healthcare after he began exhibiting worrisome signs, such as his teeth falling out. LB was one of 10 My 600-lb Life stars who passed away after appearing in the series.
Furthermore, David Bolton, who also appeared in Season 6, sued Megalomedia, claiming it had failed to pay for his medical expenses and had failed to provide him with mental healthcare in order to process his dramatic weight loss, according to Reality Blurb.
