Teen Mom shuts down filming as cast copes with coronavirus pandemic – The Sun

TEEN Mom has shut down filming and the OG reunion special is up in the air as cast members are coping with the coronavirus pandemic, The Sun can exclusively reveal.

Teen Mom OG star Maci Bookout exclusively revealed to The Sun how her family is coping during the COVID-19 quarantine while they wait for production to pick back up.

A production source told The Sun: “They currently don’t have crews on site right now due to the virus.”

“MTV doesn’t have firm info on reunion taping information at this time.”

Maci, 28, told The Sun that she has been quarantining with her husband, Taylor McKinney, son Maverick, 3, daughter Jayde, 4, and son Bentley, 11, who she shares with ex Ryan Edwards.

She said: “We started quarantining ourselves about week and a half, two weeks ago. Schools are closed. I’ve been the teacher. Teachers need a raise!”

Maci continued that her family is “trying to find ways to be active” indoors.

On her Instagram page, she posted a series of videos of Taylor and Bentley playing basketball and golf inside.

Maci also posted a video of her two youngest children participating in a pirate treasure hunt around the home.

She said of the clips: “We randomly did a video then we got good feedback and a good reaction from this so we were like, 'Let’s do more.’

“We are trying to think of things people can do inside their homes. How they can play games in different ways.”

Fellow cast member Catelynn Lowell revealed her frustration over being unable to see her co-stars Maci, Amber Portwood and Cheyenne Floyd.

She tweeted: “Seeing us all together really makes me miss you all even more!!! Especially not having a reunion because of Covid-19.

"When it’s over we need to see each other. I MISS YOU.”

As for the Teen Mom 2 cast, they began filming for the upcoming season earlier this year.

Cast members, which include Kailyn Lowry, Leah Messer, Chelsea Houska, Briana DeJesus and Jade Cline, have stopped posting with their producers in recent weeks.

Although production for the franchise is on hold, new episodes of TMOG air Tuesdays at 8/7c on MTV.
