Though her son Collin is in a treatment facility following years of serious behavioral issues, Kate Gosselin refuses to step out of the spotlight!
After nearly a year off the air, the reality matriarch has confirmed that she and her enormous brood will be back for another reason of TLC reality show Kate Plus 8 early next year.
"We are! Full season of Kate Plus 8 returning in January!" the 41-year-old mother of eight responded to an Instagram follower's comment that the family should return to TV. (The original post was a bizarre photo of her son Aaden in a dog crate.)

Kate's decision may come as a shock to many fans, as her son Collin, 12, is undergoing treatment in a facility two hours away from home.
Insiders recently told RadarOnline.com that the boy — who was expelled from elementary school in 2010 for what sources claimed was hurting an adult — suffers from "anger issues" and frequently "lashes out."
Will Kate document Collin's battle on the new season? While the answer is still unclear, her son's very serious troubles have never been off-limits in the past. In August, she announced in a major magazine interview that he was getting professional help for his "special needs," and once spoke about his "social" and "educational" problems.
Kate's ex-husband Jon, 39, is sure to be furious with her move to keep the kids, especially Collin, on TV.
"Collin is just a kid, and deserves his privacy," a source told RadarOnline.com about Jon's feelings. "Why would a mother want the world to be talking about her son's problems?"
