The renewal comes a little more than a week after the season finale of “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo,” which featured a commitment ceremony between family matriarch June and her longtime companion Sugar Bear, and yielded series-high ratings for the show.

The new season kicks off with an “unconventional honeymoon that is sure to start fireworks,” the network said. “Now that the stresses of wedding planning have dissipated, it’s time for June to ditch the bedazzled Keds and welcome back the familiar sights and sounds of rural McIntyre, GA. What better way to relax and unwind than with a romantic Southern getaway with Sugar Bear? Not in the world of Boo Boo!” TLC said.
