Supernanny is back! Lifetime is reviving the popular series with Jo Frost returning to help more parents raise their children. Season eight of the series will land on the network on January 1 at 10pm. The network ordered 20 episodes of the reality series to air in 2020.
Lifetime revealed the following about the return of the series in a press release. Check that out below.
“Drawing on 30 years of professional experience, Jo is back to help stressed-out parents tackle social and behavioral challenges as well as new issues faced by modern-day families. With a recipe of honest, direct and nurturing support, Jo offers real-life solutions to parents – uplifting families with advice, techniques, and tips to iron out the chaos in their lives, helping families evolve.
“It will always remain a privilege to be educating and helping families evolve, and making a difference,” said Jo Frost, Executive Producer and Family Expert on Supernanny. “Thank you Lifetime for bringing this groundbreaking show back to families nationwide at a time in the world when we so desperately need it most,” she continued.
The families featured this season are from cities and towns around the country, including Phenix City, AL; Spokane, WA; Makaha, HI; Corona, CA; Mesa, AZ; Cortlandt Manor, NY; Gilbert, AZ; and more. Each of the families are dealing with diverse issues that span the spectrum of parenting challenges – from dealing with postpartum depression, ADHD, kids obsessed with electronic devices, blended families struggling with children acting out, military and first responder spouses facing separations – to parents buried in their phones and more. Jo will visit one new family each week and use her trusted and proven methods and elevated teachings to help them change their dynamics while focusing on positive reinforcement and connectivity.
Supernanny’s first stop will be in Pittstown, NJ, where viewers will meet Jessica and CJ Braido and their four children. The couple recently went from double duty to quadruple duty, when their twins Dax and Chase arrived three months ago. The dual career parents were already at odds with opposing parenting styles and relying on devices as digital babysitters. With the tension rising, will Nanny Jo be able to teach Jessica and CJ to work together before chaos pushes them further apart?
Supernanny is produced by Shed Media, a division of Warner Bros. Unscripted & Alternative Television, and executive produced by Dan Peirson, Stephanie Schwam and Lisa Christy with John Henshaw as showrunner and Jo Frost executive producer. Cat Rodriguez and Gena McCarthy executive produce for Lifetime.”
