I am Shauna Rae is set to return to TLC for another season.
The hit show follows the life of Shauna Rae, a 22-year-old who looks like “an eight-year-old girl.” Having battled brain cancer at an early age and as a result of chemotherapy, Rae stopped growing when she was three feet and 10 inches.
In the upcoming season, the little person is set to change her life in big ways. Rae is set to take charge of her life and gain her independence, but her parents aren’t completely on board.
The synopsis of the season premiere reads:
"Shauna goes on a date with a man who has pituitary dwarfism. Later, she has her first driving lesson, but car modifications and a fear of driving intensify the pressure behind the wheel. Then, Shauna has mixed emotions about moving with her family."
I am Shauna Rae is set to premiere on Tuesday, November 1, at 10 pm ET on TLC.
