Little People Big World is returning to TLC with four new specials from Gay Rosenthal Productions.

The series centered around the Roloffs, a family of six made up of little and average height people, and ran on TLC from 2006 to 2010.

The four new specials will deal with the cliffhangers left from the series finale, such as the condition of Matt and Amy’s marriage, and whether the family sold its farm.

The first Little People Big World special will tentatively air in early October, 2011. Production began this week.

“Across six seasons, the Roloffs shared unfiltered access to their remarkable lives, and these specials are a great opportunity to update the TLC audience on their latest developments,” said Amy Winter, GM, TLC. “Matt and Amy will always be part of our network’s family and we know their fans will be excited to reconnect.”

Series stars Matt and Amy Roloff added, “The response from the fans since Little People Big World’s finale has been overwhelming, asking how we’re doing and what’s the latest with the kids. These specials are going to be a great opportunity to share our families’ updates with our fans from time to time through the year.”
