TLC has renewed “I Am Jazz” for Season 6, which will air in 2020.
The GLAAD Award-winning reality series, which follows transgender teen advocate Jazz Jennings as she navigates life’s ups and downs alongside her close-knit and supportive family, recently wrapped its highest-rated season among women both 18-49 and 25-54. Its per-episode average of 1.4 million total viewers was the second-largest audience in series history.
“Jazz is the quintessential example of living authentically and embracing one’s true self and that is what TLC seeks to celebrate in all of our programming,” Howard Lee, president and GM of TLC, told TheWrap. “Jazz’s story has inspired viewers across America, and never more so than this past year during the most important moment of her life. We are proud that Jazz and her family have allowed TLC to follow along on her journey and we look forward with great excitement to sharing the next chapter of her life with our devoted audience.”
In Season 5, which concluded March 19, Jennings allowed cameras to document the biggest, most personal event of her life — gender confirmation surgery. Viewers also witnessed other major milestones, including Jazz’s first prom, her 18th birthday and her first serious boyfriend.
Fans can watch past seasons on TLC GO.
“I Am Jazz” is produced by This is Just a Test for TLC.
