'I Am Jazz' Has Officially Been Confirmed for a Sixth Season!
Season 5 of 'I Am Jazz' came to a close last week and fans are already clamoring for more. So, will there be a Season 6?
It's been a wild year for Jazz Jennings and her family, who star in TLC's hit Tuesday-night appointment viewing show, I Am Jazz. Over the past five years, we've watched Jazz grow from a trans child trying to understand her place in the world to a beautiful and resilient woman who's "finally in the body" she always wanted.
And this year was an eventful one for Jazz, to say the least. We watched as she and her friends tried to put their Parkland shooting trauma behind them and attend the LGBTQ prom they'd long been awaiting. We saw Jazz run into her old flame but start things up with a new boyfriend, Ahmir.
And perhaps most the most stressful but exciting part of the whole season was watching Jazz get gender-confirmation surgery, which, despite the complications, left her feeling better than ever today.
But now that Jazz is 18, weighing college decisions and whether or not to move out of her family's house, fans are wondering whether they'll be able to tune in to another year in the life of the trans star.
So, will there be a Season 6 of 'I Am Jazz'?
Fans don't have to say goodbye to Jazz and her family just yet, because earlier today, TLC confirmed they'd be giving viewers a sixth season of I Am Jazz.
"Jazz is the quintessential example of living authentically and embracing one's true self and that is what TLC seeks to celebrate in all of our programming," TLC's president announced in a statement. "Jazz's story has inspired viewers across AMerica, and never more so than this past year during the most important moment of her life."
"We are proud that Jazz and her family have allowed TLC to follow along on her journey and we look forward with great excitement to sharing the next chapter of her life with our devoted audience," the statement read.
When will Season 6 of I Am Jazz air?
Considering the past few season of I Am Jazz have aired on TLC in January, with a trailer dropping around the holidays in December, we expect Season 6 will follow suit.
As Jazz's mother Jeanette put it in the Season 5 finale, "Hopefully 2019 will be less stressful. A lot of stress this year."

There's no saying how this star is going to handle a full college workload, a long-distance relationship and hanging out with her big group of self-proclaimed "weirdo" friends, but we can't wait to see it all come to life in Season 6.
In the meantime, the first five seasons of I Am Jazz are available for streaming on TLC.
