The Duggars are a household name now after spending over a decade in the limelight.
Whether it was the original “19 Kids and Counting” or one of the subsequent spin-offs, the Duggar family has been on display for many years on TLC.
As the original set of kids grows up, gets married and starts raising their own families, they’re faced with the choice to be involved in a series or break off.
The wholesome-branded family, as public as it is, has been the subject of intense scrutiny, and not everything aired about the Duggar clan has been positive, giving them even more reason to consider breaking with the publicization of their lives.
In 2017, Jill Duggar Dillard, featured on both “19 Kids and Counting” and “Counting On,” decided, with her husband Derick, to step away from the cameras and discontinue their presence on the series.
