Here Comes Honey Boo Boo … again!
Alana Thompson and her “cra-azy” family – dad Sugar Bear, mom June and big sisters Pumpkin, Chickadee and Chubbs – will be back for even more Southern-fried shenanigans. TLC has ordered additional episodes of the hit series, the network tells PEOPLE exclusively.
“Here Comes Honey Boo Boo is a pop culture phenomenon,” Amy Winter, general manager of TLC, says in a statement released to PEOPLE. “What you see is what you get, and we are excited to share even more of their unbridled hilarity, sincerity and love with our viewers.”
Fans will also be able to celebrate Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas with the Georgia family, who will appear in three “HOLLAday” specials.
The finale for the first half of season 1 airs Wednesday on TLC – and on the special, one-hour episode Alana will prep for her latest pageant with her “rebelchious” Uncle Poodle.

The episode will also show the arrival of Chickadee’s two-thumbed baby Kaitlyn.
