Nine months after the family's reality show, 19 Kids And Counting, was canceled in disgrace following son Josh's molestation scandal, the Duggars are back with a full season of daughters Jill and Jessa's spinoff series, RadarOnline.com has learned.

According to Us Weekly, the young mothers, along with siblings Jana, Jinger, Joy Anna, John David, Josiah and Joseph, will all appear on Jill & Jessa: Counting On, which premieres on March 15.

And while sister-in-law Anna will also participate in the show, there's no word on if her rehabbed husband, oldest brother Josh, will make a cameo.

"2015 was a very difficult year," Jessa, 23, says in the season's new trailer.

She's not exaggerating. As Radar reported in May 2015, a newly discovered 2006 police report revealed that Josh had molested five minor females, including sisters Jill and Jessa, as a teen in the early 2000's.

Due to public outcry, TLC shut down production on 19 Kids And Counting after ten wildly popular seasons.

Just three months later, Josh confessed to hiding a secret porn addiction, and cheating on Anna.

While he' still undergoing treatment in a Bible-based recovery facility, father of four Josh is expected to be released in the coming weeks— meaning he could take part in filming.

The network previously aired a three-part special of Jill & Jessa: Counting On, and while Josh did not make an on-camera appearance, he was the topic of many conversations.

"One of the hardest things I had to tell my older brother was, 'I don't want to be like you anymore,'" John David, 25, told the cameras.
