‘Counting On’: Jill Duggar Beckoned Back to the Show

Counting On‘s Jill Duggar may be back.  TLC’s hit series Counting On is a truly loved family show and the fans of the Duggar brood are beckoning Jill Duggar to return. The Duggar Family did something over the weekend, which caught the eye of the fans. This sparked the fans to unofficially campaign to bring Jill back to Counting On.

Counting On Fans Unofficial ‘Come Back’ Campaign for Jill Duggar

What made Counting On fans so adamant about Jill returning? The Duggar family posted a picture of Jill and her sisters on their Facebook page. This throw-back picture stirred up memories for the followers. They were kind of homesick for Jill. The picture below was the one that got the fans going on their Counting On “come back” campaign.

Many of the Counting On viewers love the Duggars and their way of life. With that said, the fans understand why Jill and her husband Derick Dillard are no longer on the show.

Jill Duggar and Her Sisters Made Fans Homesick?

The Facebook post prompted fans to send “plenty of love her way.” According to In Touch Weekly, fans were even willing to “overlook that whole Derick-was-fired-for -being-transphobic thing.”

Along with the plenty of love sent to Jill by the fans, she got requests to come back. Some fans said they didn’t agree with the producers of the show. The show that is now called Counting On was originally titled Jill & Jessa: Counting On.

This spin-off show was the result of 19 Kids and Counting’s cancellation after Josh Duggar’s molestation scandal. Jill & Jessa: Counting On was specifically created to showcase the two older girls starting families of their own. Now the show that had Jill in mind when first coming off the drawing board is without Jill Duggar and her little brood as planned.

Counting On Rocky Road For Derick Dillard

Derick’s relationship with the TLC Network and Counting On was a bit rocky as well. Besides his verbal attack on another TLC reality star, he complained that he was never paid for his appearances on Counting On. Apparently, Derick also had an ax to grind publicly with TLC for not paying the medical bills for his son Israel.

There was never an official firing of Derick Dillard. Although TLC did release a statement that severed their relationship from any personal statements he made. In that statement, they also made it clear that he had no future with the show.

Some Viewers Willing To Forget But is TLC?

Fans hopped on the social media sites beckoning Jill back to the show. Some even claimed they’d be willing to forget about Dillard’s past if they’d take him back as well. They would do this if it would bring Jill back to the show.

With that said, this idea might be a hard sell for the fans when it comes to the TLC channel. They seemed pretty adamant about Derick being off the show, from the sounds of the statement above. That statement was posted last year by the network.

There’s nothing much watchers can do to get their fix of missing Jill Duggar outside of heading over to her Instagram account. She is fairly active there with her bizarre, yet enjoyable recipes. And then there’s always her parenting tidbits. Come back to Soap Dirt often for more Counting On and Dugger News.

Soaps are an infatuation of mine and reality TV lets me be that fly on the wall when it comes to witnessing all types of behavior, as it never amazes me what people will say and do with the cameras rolling.
