TLC reality show Welcome to Myrtle Manor will not see husband and wife cast members Jared and Chelsea Stetson returning for its fourth season, should the network even decide to renew the series. The show’s fate has been up in the air since the season 3 finale on April 23, and this latest news is making fans feel even less positive surrounding the reality of it getting renewed.
Chelsea took to her Facebook page, Myrtle Manor Chelsea, on July 10 to inform her fans that she would be shutting it down within the upcoming week, and starting a joint one with her husband Jared entitled, “The Stetsons,” which would consist of sharing pictures and videos of their life with 1-year-old daughter Bellamy, whom they introduced to Welcome to Myrtle Manor at the beginning of the most current season. Her reason for doing so, she stated, lay with the blatant negativity and disrespect being projected towards her family with zero legitimate reason. The former reality television star says that she and her husband do not want to be associated with such things, and therefore were shutting down the page. Chelsea invited anyone who wanted to legitimately support them to like their official family page.
In the comments of this post, several Welcome to Myrtle Manor fans asked what their future was for the show given that the two had both shut down their official pages, Jared did not use his much, but around the same time he posted a very unimpressed status regarding how people were treating his wife and their family overall. Mrs. Stetson informed these concerned individuals that unfortunately, under no circumstances would she or her family be returning to or associating with Welcome to Myrtle Manor in any way.
A few days before her official post, Chelsea updated the page expressing disappointment and upset that she was being bashed for promoting the mugs she creates on social media, given that she does so to support her family and make sure her daughter continues to have a good life. She felt upset that people would be so hateful for no reason, especially since they were still being given access to her private life and matters even though the show had ended, meaning that she thought she could trust them.
The fate of Welcome to Myrtle Manor‘s fourth season has been shaky since the last one began. Ratings fell rather hard in the third season, as reported by MyrtleBeachOnline. Viewers just did not seem as interested in the series as they had during the first two; this is speculated as being due to too many cast switch-ups, lack of original plot ideas, and too much drama for the sake of drama.
