During Season 11 of My Big Fat Fabulous Life, fans will get to witness some pretty monumentous (and relatable) events Whitney goes up against, including the passing of her mother, Barbara Thore, aka "Babs." In addition to her having to learn how to navigate life without her mom, the trailer for the upcoming season also shows Whitney acting as a guide for her father, who is also heartbroken over the loss of his significant other.

While some moments in Season 11 will weight heavy on you, the mood does lighten up after Whitney jumps back into the dating scene and gets to meet her half-sister for the very first time. Needless to say, it's going to be an eventful eleventh season!

'MBFFL' Season 10 showcased some major changes in Whitney's life.

Season 10 of MBFFL began with Whitney's mother experiencing a stroke and needing hospitalization. At first, the family wasn't sure if she would even survive — especially considering that Babs also tested positive for COVID-19 and was battling a urinary tract infection. Thankfully, Whitney's mom recovered, and with the help of extensive physical therapy, she was able to transition to an assisted living community.

During Season 10, viewers also learned that Whitney was still in a long-distance relationship with the Frenchman — although they eventually decided to begin a "don't ask, don't tell" policy, opening things up for experimentation with other people. This further complicated things with Whitney's ex Lennie, who came back into her life and began working for her as a video editor for No BS Active.

Other Season 10 highlights included Whit's friend Jessica Powell's wedding, the cast members making an '80s-inspired music video promoting No BS active, Heather testing out the dating waters, and a health scare involving Whitney's cat, Henchi.

Thankfully, fans can now rest easy knowing a new season begins in September 2023.

In the meantime, you can rewatch Seasons 1–10 of My Big Fat Fabulous Life on Discovery Plus.
