Jeremy Roloff Reveals Why He Left Little People, Big World

Jeremy Roloff has finally come clean.

The long-time reality star took fans by surprise last month when he announced that he and wife Audrey Roloff would NOT be returning for future episodes of Little People, Big World.

And why not?

Jeremy didn’t really cite a reason at the time.

He merely said the following:

After 14 years, over 300 episodes, and 17 seasons, the time has come.

A year ago I made the decision that this season would be our last. It has been an amazing run, and I can’t say thank you enough to all of you who have watched and supported us along the ride…

We will still be supporting the family as they carry the #LPBW torch onward. This is a decision concerning Audrey and me specifically – the show must go on!

As Roloff himself said in this statement, he basically grew up in front of TLC cameras and decided awhile back that it was time for a change.

Perfectly understandable, right?

And Audrey, of course, backed her husband up in a message of her own.

Now, however, as part of an interview with People Magazine, Jeremy has elaborated a bit on his reason for wanting to spread his wings beyond reality TV.

“I think when anyone has done something for 15 years, they reach a point where they kind of ask themselves, ‘How much longer do I want to be doing this?’ And so two years ago I asked myself that question,” Roloff told the publication.

Jeremy went on to say he prayed on the issue and received the full support of his loved ones and has no regrets about the decision.

“It just felt boring almost, you know?” he adds.

“At some point you [need to] build something that you’re proud of. I didn’t build the show, and I’m not saying you need to build something to be proud, I’m just saying it ran its course.

“I feel like now is a great time to leave.”

And Jeremy and Audrey have plenty to keep them busy.

The couple has a book coming out next spring, along with something they did build: blog/company Beating 50 Percent, which defines itself as “a marriage ministry on [a] mission to revive covenant marriages.”

It also sells merchandise.

So it’s not as though these Roloffs will be disappearing entirely; far from it, in fact.

About two years ago, Jeremy’s brother, Jacob Roloff, also quit Little People, Big World.

But he did it in far more dramatic and scandalous fashion, blasting the series and his family members and fake.

Molly Roloff, meanwhile, never really showed any interest in being a cast member.

Back to Audrey and Jeremy, though:

Besides growing their family at some point, the stars also want to purchase land or the family farm.

As for their careers, Jeremy explains that their biggest goal is “to continue sharing our life with people.” He explains:

“We’re trying to inspire love stories.”

Little People, Big World: Will Matt and Amy Sell Roloff Farms?

Three generations of the Roloff family have enjoyed Roloff Farms.

But now, fans are terrified that Little People, Big World stars Matt Roloff and his ex-wife, Amy Roloff, will sell the farm.

They have a lot of reasons to worry — because Matt and Amy have both openly discussed the diea.

So, what is the future of Roloff Farms?

Let's take a look at what we know — and what fans fear.

1. Roloff Farms is the family home

2. Matt has openly discussed the idea

Matt told his ex-wife Amy: “We’ve been talking a lot about the farm. Trying to figure out how to keep it or not keep it.”

3. Matt has even called the farm a burden

“There’s part of me that wants to keep the farm and build a house that suits me, but part of me just wants to sell the farm and liquidate it and move on. It’s a burden.”

4. Amy has her own life now

Amy and Matt are at very different places in their lives than they were in 1980. They’re divorced grandparents, for one thing.

5. Audrey and Jeremy are leaving the show

Little People, Big World: When Is It Coming Back?

When Jeremy and Audrey Roloff announced that they were quitting Little People, Big World, some fans feared that Tori and Zach Roloff would quit, too.

The first piece of good news is that they’re not. Auj and Jer may be leaving, but most of their family is sticking with the show.

The second piece of good news is that we now know when the series is returning.

This season of Little People, Big World has come to a close.

But, while discussing her son Jeremy and his wife Audrey’s departure from the series, family matriarch Amy Roloff dished on when fans can look forward to seeing the next season.

“Season 14 is being filmed right now,” Amy reveals.

Remember, it can take days to film even one episode of a reality show.

Amy then says that she expects that Season 14 “will air late this season or spring.”

We think that, by “season,” she meant to say year.

Tori Roloff, Back At It LPBW

Of course, we already knew that they were filming again.

Tori Roloff has made sure that fans are aware that the cameras and producers are on Roloff Farms, following the family members who are still part of the show.

Tori shared multiple behind-the-scenes glimpses at her and her husband, back at work filming for Little People, Big World.

When a couple of a show’s stars announce that they’re moving on to different pastures, it’s important for remaining cast members to reassure fans that the show will continue.

Nothing does that better than photographic evidence. They’re something about pictures that just feels realer to your average fan than any verbal assurances ever could.

Viewers will still get to see a lot, even with the remaining Roloffs.

For starters, baby Jackson Roloff will have plenty more milestones in the coming months which, we hope, will be captured on film and shared on the show.

(Also, baby Jackson was recently injured while practicing walking. Poor little guy. He’s only 13 months old)

We’ve seen so much of Jackson on social media, including his process of learning to swim.

We can’t wait to see more of Jackson (and of course, his parents and grandparents) in Season 14!

It’s not like not appearing on the show is the end of the world.

As with Jacob Roloff and his fiancee, Isabel, viewers will be able to keep an eye on Audrey and Jeremy through social media.

If anything, perhaps this will free Auj and Jer to post even more photos of precious little Ember Jean, since they won’t need to hold back for the show’s sake.

(Some reality stars withold major life events as much as possible until they air on TV)

We don’t know if she’ll actually reappear on Little People, Big World.

But you can bet that she’ll spend more time with her extended family, including her slightly older cousin, Jackson.

Based upon Amy’s words, it sounds like they haven’t even penciled in a precise date.

But she’s been at this for 13 seasons already. If she says that the new season will premiere later this year or during the first half of next year, we’re inclined to believe her.

Unlike scripted television, reality television often follows its own schedule that has more to do with the lifestyles of the stars but also the scheduling convenience of the network.

Footage can sit around for months without being aired. Let’s hope that we get to see more of the Roloffs on television as soon as is reasonably possible.

So … preferably this year, please. But, if need be, we can wait.

Audrey Roloff: Quitting Little People, Big World Because It’s God’s Plan?

In a heartbreaking move, Jeremy and Audrey Roloff have announced their departure from Little People, Big World.

Jer was the first to break the soul-crushing news.

Now, Audrey is thanking fans for their support — and shedding a little more insight on why they’re stepping back from the camera.

Audrey took to Instagram to repeat the news. Not everyone who follows her also follows Jer.

“In case you didn’t see our annoucement over on @jeremyroloff’s IGTV,” Audrey’s post begins.

Auj announces: “This past season was our last season of filming for Little People Big World.”

We already knew from Jeremy’s post, but … repetition doesn’t make this news any easier to swallow.

“I know it’s been a shorter run for me,” Audrey acknowledges. “For Jeremy it’s been 14 years!,”

He did, in part, grow up on reality television.

Audrey continues: “but I’ve shared some pretty big life moments on #LPBW”

For example, she lists how Little People, Big World viewers got to see her go through the process of “getting engaged,”

Audrey also recalls how viewers were treated to “our wedding day.”

She mentions that she was on the show for “the launch of @beating50,” which is definitely more exciting for her than for your average viewer.

Auj recounts how fans followed her and Jeremy for “3 moves” and “a remodel.”

And of course, fans got to see her “finding out we were having a baby girl, and becoming a new mom!”

Where would any of us be without precious Ember Jean?

Audrey continues, thanking her fans: “I am so thankful for the encouragement, kindness, and support that each of you have shown to our family.”

“We are forever grateful for the run we’ve had,” she says, almost wistfully.

“But,” she says, she and Jeremy are “Excited to focus on what we feel the Lord is calling us to!”

“You guys are the most loyal fans,” Auj gushes. “Thank you for respecting our decision. And thanks to TLC for putting up with us”

She follows that with a winky-face emoticon.

Audrey wasn’t done, however. She had another major shout-out.

“Mostly, I am so proud of my husband,” she writes.

“Who has grown up in the public eye and yet remained grounded, wise, and steadfast in his faith.”

Growing up in the public eye can be a challenge, but we’re not sure how it would challenge his faith or wisdom.

Unless … was this some sort of jab at the agnostic Jacob Roloff?

“This decision is one that I respect him for immensely,” Audrey says. “‘Here’s hail to the rest of the road!’ I love you Farmer.”

Audrey, an outspoken Christian, then cites:

“Psalm 20:7 #journeyofjerandauj #beating50percent”

Psalm 20:7 refers to how some may trust in mundane things of the world to see them on their journeys, but Christians trust in their God.

Appropriate, given the subject matter.

Though, with Audrey’s phrasing, some fans may be asking themselves — did Audrey and Jeremy quit the show because they believe that God wanted them to?

Little People, Big World: Are Tori and Zach Roloff Leaving, Too?

Little People, Big World are reeling right about now.

On Tuesday afternoon, Jeremy Roloff made an announcement that took fans of this TLC franchise by surprise:

He and wife Audrey Roloff will leave the series after this upcoming season.

“It has been an amazing run, and I can’t say thank you enough to all of you who have watched and supported us along the ride,” wrote Jeremy on Instagram, explaining that he and Audrey made the choice to depart about a year ago.

Roloff did say something positive in his heartfelt post, at least:

“We will still be supporting the family as they carry the #LPBW torch onward. This is a decision concerning Audrey and me specifically – the show must go on!”

Will he go on past this season?

And, if so, which family members will be a part of Little People, Big World?

TLC is yet to provide an answer to the first question, but Tori and Zach Roloff has now provided an answer to the second — and it can be summed up by the photo below.

“We’re not going anywhere!” Tori announced on her Instagram Story, prior to engaging with fans and responding to some of their inquiries.

“Will Z & T be staying with LPBW?” one user asked.

“YAS! And J too,” Tori replied, referring to the pair’s son Jackson, whom they welcomed in May 2017.

Elsewhere, a fan asked why the couple has chosen to remain on the show after getting married; sort of an odd question, but one Tori responded to anyway:

“Because we feel like we’re not done telling our story.”

Tori later said that her favorite part of filming is “getting to share our story with our fans.”

TLC has not yet announced whether or not it will bring Little People, Big World back for another season.

We’ve had our doubts of late because Matt Roloff is moving to Arizona and Amy Roloff has expressed some doubt about remaining on the farm.

Zach and Tori, however, have simply been enjoying life as parents for about a year now and recently moved into a new home, one close to the family farm.

They aren’t going anywhere.

The same can’t be said for Jeremy and Audrey, however.

“We’re not disappearing,” Jeremy assured fans in his statement. “We have a lot of exciting stuff in the works and are eager to continue the world that the Lord has called us to!”

UPDATE

The cable network has now released a statement of its own, confirming that the show WILL be back in 2019!

“We wish Jeremy, Audrey, and Ember the best, and are excited to continue to keep up with other members of the Roloff family when Little People, Big World returns next year,” TLC says.

Meanwhile, Tori told her more than 700,000 followers that sharing their lives with the television universe can be weird, but the family does not hold back.

At all.

“Our philosophy is if we aren’t willing to share something with others we probably shouldn’t be doing it,” she wrote.

“Plus something we’re going through can ultimately help others (even though that still baffles me today).”
