The 7 Little Johnstons family is expanding! In our EXCLUSIVE trailer for the episode ahead, the Johnstons welcome an eighth member to the family. Trent and Amber have an exchange student living with them for 3 months.
The exchange student’s name is Joose. He is 17 years old and hails from Finland. “Everything here is new for me,” Joose admits. Amber says she can’t wait to show him what life with the Johnstons is like. This includes the Johnstons’ backyard games!
Meanwhile, Alex is feeling the pressure during a tough year of school. “This semester for Alex, he is in a lot of honors classes, so he has been struggling a bit,” Amber says. At one point, Alex starts crying at the dinner table and is excused from the table.
Liz and her boyfriend, Brice, are coming up on their 3-year anniversary. She asks her parents if Brice can move in, and Trent is definitely not on board with the idea. Both Trent and Amber were raised to believe you shouldn’t live with someone until you’re married. “I can’t sit here and tell you Dad gives you the green light,” Trent says to Liz.
The synopsis for the new episodes reads: “As Trent adjusts to the complexities of his new job as a car salesman and Amber juggles teaching while returning to college, the Johnstons decide to welcome a new member into their household!
