Libby’s family is being featured more than ever on Happily Ever After, and The Family Potthast may be TLC’s next 90 Day Fiancé spin-off show.
As Elizabeth Potthast and Andrei Castravet’s journey continues on 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After? season 7, there are more and more indications that the couple and Elizabeth’s family will soon get their own spin-off from TLC. Libby and Andrei are no strangers to the 90 Day Fiancé franchise and have been featured on multiple shows for multiple seasons—often accompanied by Libby’s parents and siblings. However, their family drama is often criticized by fans who think the family is toxic and have accused TLC of staging scenes.
In season 7, the conflict in the Potthast-Castravet family is as tense as ever. While Libby attempts to pursue her dream of singing nursery rhymes, Andrei faces threats of deportation, and the whole family is still reeling from Andrei and his brother-in-law Charlie Potthast’s violent fight from last season. But if viewers were hoping for the family to have learned and grown from what they went through, they were sorely mistaken. Libby’s sisters Jenn and Becky Potthast already went back on their claim that they wouldn’t spend time with Charlie unless he addressed his drinking problem, while Libby and Andrei have held firm. Although many fans are tired of their drama, there are signs that viewers will see a lot more of the Potthasts.
Libby & Andrei Are Getting A Good Edit On Happily Ever After
On Happily Ever After? season 7, Andrei and Libby are coming off well—suspiciously well. In the past the show has highlighted their more unlikable behaviors and attitudes, but this season the two seem surprisingly reasonable. They are the only ones in the family to stand firm against Charlie, and fans can understand their desire to not expose their daughter to his behavior while under the influence. Libby and Andrei seem more level-headed than ever, and it could be because TLC is priming them to be the stars of their own spin-off, while Libby’s family are poised to be the source of conflict.
The Potthast Siblings Are Getting Storylines
Though the focus of Happily Ever After? is supposed to be Libby and Andrei, viewers are getting a lot more of the rest of the Potthast family this season. An entire segment was dedicated to Charlie taking pictures of his wife Meghan’s feet and explaining their booming OnlyFans business. The other Potthast siblings have also been featured in scenes without Andrei and Libby, and it looks like they’re starting to take a more central role in the storyline. TLC may be attempting to expand on the other Potthasts as characters the same way Chantel Everett’s family members became cast members on The Family Chantel.
Libby Potthast’s Pregnancy Could Mark The Start Of A New Series
Fans who follow Libby on Instagram are well aware that she is currently pregnant with her second child and is set to give birth soon. However, the topic of her pregnancy has not yet been broached on Happily Ever After? It’s possible that her pregnancy won’t come up until the end of season 7, which would be the perfect segue into a spin-off show. A new series focused on Libby and Andrei would center around their second pregnancy while balancing their relationship with the rest of Libby’s family. Libby’s pregnancy could serve as a seamless transition to ‘The Family Potthast.’
There’s been no official word about Libby and Andrei landing a spin-off show, but based on how long they’ve been in the franchise and how their storyline on 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After? is going, it’s entirely possible. There are rumors that The Family Chantel will not be returning for season 5 due to Chantel and Pedro Jimeno’s divorce, so TLC may have an open slot in the schedule. A Potthast family solo show may be the last thing fans want, but that hasn’t stopped TLC before. The same network that has shoved the likes of Big Ed Brown and Angela Deem down viewers’ throats for years would probably be more than happy to greenlight a Potthast family spin-off.
