Behind the Duggars' Cancellation: Inside the Sudden Move That Ended a Jill & Jessa Spin-Off

Originally posted 07/22/2015 11:00AM

After TLC pulled all episodes of 19 Kids and Counting from the air, following reports that Josh Duggar had molested five underage girls when he was 14 (he subsequently apologized and said he had "acted inexcusably"), there was talk that the show would shift from the entire family and focus on daughters Jill Dillard and Jessa Seewald.

It's no surprise a spin-off centered on the older Duggar daughters – whose marriages and pregnancies had become a popular part of the show – was being considered during the "near-constant" and "intense" conversations about the show's future, as a source who has worked closely with the family tells PEOPLE in this week's issue, but the source says not everyone was on board.

Now, a source at TLC tells PEOPLE that Jessa Seewald and Jill Dillard will indeed appear in the documentary, which is in the early stages of production. Both women have come forward as molestation victims of brother Josh Duggar when he was a teenager.

The reality show "will no longer appear on the air," the network told the Associated Press in a statement Thursday.

TLC pulled the plug on 19 Kids following public pressure that erupted when a resurfaced police report from 2006 revealed that Josh had been investigated for child molestation of six people when he was a teen.
