Farrah Abraham Replaced on Teen Mom OG by TM3’s Mackenzie McKee

Since we first heard that Farrah Abraham was fired from Teen Mom OG, we've been dying to know what MTV's next move would be. Would they replace her, or would they just give the remaining three moms extra screen time? Would they move one of the Teen Mom 2 girls to the other show, considering that cast is now made of five moms since Briana DeJesus joined last season?

As it turns out, the network has decided to bring in another mom to star aside Maci McKinney, Amber Portwood, and Catelynn Baltierra during the show's next season. According to TMZ, Mackenzie McKee (from the one-season-long Teen Mom 3) will be replacing the controversial Farrah on Teen Mom OG, and it's definitely going to bring new life to the show next season.

After her stint on 16 & Pregnant, Mackenzie starred on the short-lived spin-off, and quickly became a fan favorite. Over the last few weeks, fans have spotted film crews and MTV producers in her recent Instagram story posts, and with this news, suddenly it all makes sense.

TMZ reported that Mackenzie has been filming for over a week, and that it was a pretty easy transition since she was already filming a special for the network centered around her mom's recent cancer diagnosis. Now, we'll be able to catch up with Mackenzie, her husband, Josh, and her kids Jaxie, Gannon, and Broncs, for the first time in so long.

The addition of Mackenzie to the show makes her the second Teen Mom 3 alum to join the two surviving series since Bri joined the cast of Teen Mom 2 earlier this year. It makes sense that she'd be their pick — fans still seem to be interested in what's going on with her life, especially now that her mom has been diagnosed with a terminal brain cancer.

So far, Mackenzie hasn't said anything about her new gig herself (aside from retweeting a few articles about the news) and MTV has yet to confirm it themselves, but it seems all but official that Mackenzie is in and Farrah is out. Now, all we have to do is wait for the announcement… and the new episodes next season.

It's going to be so weird to watch Teen Mom OG without Farrah (and Debra… and Sophia) in it, but maybe it's the right time for a change. We're excited to see what Mackenzie's been up to and for the fresh twist it's going to put on a show that's been around forever. As you may already know, Farrah's treatment of MTV staff members and her decision to continue in the adult entertainment industry (doing nude cam shows) lead to her being fired from her show. Now, MTV just needs to fill us in on the details and the premiere date for next season, We're definitely going to need more info before Mackenzie takes the spotlight.
