Do you need a reminder of June Shannon’s transformation and a tease of what is to come? Keep reading.
June Shannon, or Mama June, was having a breakdown at the end of season three. The rest of the family was struggling to get June some help, and they had turned to professionals for guidance. Unfortunately, it appeared that things were getting worse. June and boyfriend Geno Doak were arrested last March for drug possession. Geno also faced domestic violence charges.
Both June and Geno pleaded not guilty last October, and they will appear in court this May to fight those charges.
The description for the upcoming episode says, “June goes missing after her arrest. A shocking murder triggers a dangerous manhunt to save her life. Pumpkin fights to keep the family together while Jennifer is coming to tear them apart, and Alana gets an unexpected invitation.”
It appears that the entire season will focus on the impact of Mama June’s current lifestyle and behaviors, including her arrest, disappearance, and drug abuse. June has a lot on her plate, including physical issues and financial concerns.
June’s ex, “Sugar Bear,” is also thinking about changing the custody agreement regarding Alana, or “Honey Boo Boo.” In the show, Alana is seen living with her older sister, Lauryn (“Pumpkin”).
Mama June is also recovering from a small stroke and learns that another stroke could happen in the near future.
Much of the footage featured on the show is from May 2019, a time in which many of the family members had no idea where June was. She had not returned to the family home after her arrest.
Fans of the show have already had a lot to say about Mama June and the show. One Instagram user commented, “I’m rooting for Mama June to recover soon.” Another said, “You girls are absolutely amazing!!! [P]umpkin I admire your strength!! And Alana you are a fantastic young lady.” It is clear that the two have a lot of supporters in the comments.
While the comments about Alana and Pumpkin are largely supportive, those regarding Mama June are mixed. Regardless of their feelings about the family matriarch, many are simply excited to tune in.
