News: Does A Jill and Derick Dillard MInistry Mean The End Of “19 Kids & Counting? June 27, 2015

newsShortly after this morning’s posting about Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard leaving the Duggar Compound to form a ministry and work in Nepal this interesting bit popped up on TMZ – Jill Dillard — I’m On a Mission And Not For ’19 Kids & Counting’ It points out something obvious that no one has considered or at least commented on in public – that the Dillards mission in Nepal and new ministry registered in Little Rock, Arkansas means that TLC’s purposed plans to retool the show around Jill and Jessa plus perspective spouses isn’t going to happen. Reportedly “19 Kids & Counting” is moribund and has almost no chance of resurrection and reappearance on TLC’s line up.

From TMZ:

There’s a big clue that “19 Kids and Counting” will never see air again, because a key member of the brood is leaving the US of A.

Jill Duggar — one of Josh Duggar‘s victims — just revealed she and hubby Derick Dillard are going overseas on an extended mission trip.

TMZ broke the story … TLC was considering reconfiiguring the show so Josh would be out of the picture and Jill and Jessa would be front and center.  But with Jill out of the country, that scenario is no longer plausible.

Perhaps this does sound the death knell of the show. It wasn’t trans-phobia or homophobia or any petition that brought down the show, just the buried secrets and lying by Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar.
