Launched in 2009, the most recent original episode — featuring Savannah Mooney of Jefferson City, Missouri — aired June 16, 2014.

Klein, who joined the network four months ago, said he expects to see future seasons of TEEN MOM O.G. and TEEN MOM 2 — both of which are currently in production.

“There is a very devoted audience for those series,” he says.  “As long as our audience is seeking it, we listen to our audience.”

No premiere date has been confirmed for season 8 of TEEN MOM 2.

TEEN MOM OG returns August 22 on MTV.
