Underwood died in a car accident in 2008, shortly before Abraham gave birth to their daughter at 17 years old. Her journey was chronicled on MTV's 16 and Pregnant. She later appeared on Teen Mom and Teen Mom OG.

Abraham was last featured on Teen Mom in 2017. She later sued MTV's parent company Viacom for $5 million, claiming she was fired from Teen Mom OG because of her decision to work in the adult entertainment industry, according to court documents obtained by The Blast at the time.

In September, a source told PEOPLE that Abraham would be returning to her roots on the network.

According to the source, she signed on to a new MTV spinoff series that will unite cast members from Teen Mom OG, Teen Mom 2 and Teen Mom: Young & Pregnant.

The upcoming series will bring the stars together at a resort, where they will stay under one roof for an undesignated period of time.

A premiere date for the series has not yet been revealed.
