Mackenzie Douthit Teen Mom 3 Spin-Off: MTV Says "No Truth" to Rumors
It looks like Teen Mom 3 fans should stop holding out hope for any spin-offs. MTV recently announced it was canceling the reality series after only one season. And after rumors surfaced that central cast member Mackenzie Douthit, who is married and currently pregnant with her second child, was getting her own spin-off, the network told Us Weekly that there was "no truth" to the claims.
The 19-year-old mom had one of the show's more compelling story lines, marrying longtime boyfriend and baby daddy Josh McKee in August 2013. She is currently seven-months pregnant with a little girl after giving birth to son Gannon in September 2011.
Teen Mom 3 premiered in August 2013 with Douthit, Briana Dejesus, Alexandria Sekella, and Katie Yeager making up the new cast. But fans complained that the story lines weren't as exciting as those of their drama-filled predecessors like Farrah Abraham, Jenelle Evans, and Amber Portwood.

An MTV spokesperson told Us Weekly, "MTV will not be moving forward with a second season of Teen Mom 3. We’re thankful to Briana, Katie, Mackenzie, Alex and their families for sharing their stories as they navigate young parenthood and for helping to have a positive impact on the importance of teen pregnancy prevention."
Douthit's mother, Angie Douthit, tweeted on Dec. 7, "I'm very sad MTV chose to cancel. I wanted to keep sharing my faith on TV. And Mack wanted to share her struggles with diabetes. So sad…"
