Counting On is a reality TV series that premiered on TLC in 2015, following the lives of the Duggar family. Specifically, the show focuses on grown-up siblings Jana Duggar, Jessa Seewald, Jill Dillard, Joy-Anna Forsyth, Jinger Vuolo, Joseph Duggar, Josiah Duggar, and their spouses and children. The show also features the parents of the Duggar family, Jim Bob and Michelle, as well as various other family members.

The show began as a spin-off of another TLC series, 19 Kids and Counting, which focused on the Duggar family's daily life with their large brood of children. However, following a scandal involving Josh Duggar, one of the Duggar siblings, TLC cancelled 19 Kids and Counting and instead turned to following the Duggar siblings as they started their own families and navigated adulthood.

Counting On focuses on the various events and milestones in the lives of the Duggar siblings, such as weddings, pregnancies, and births. It also explores the family's religious and cultural beliefs, which include modest dress, courtship instead of dating, homeschooling, and a strict interpretation of Christianity.

One of the main focus points of the show is the relationships and marriages of the Duggar siblings. Viewers are shown how the siblings court their significant others, often through chaperoned outings and telephone calls with set time limits. The show also highlights the religious beliefs that guide these relationships, such as the belief in saving physical intimacy until marriage and the importance of marriage as a sacred bond.

Another theme of Counting On is family togetherness and support. The show often depicts the siblings and their spouses coming together for family events, such as holidays, where they showcase their love and support for one another. The family values are also evident in the way the Duggar siblings and their spouses raise their children, with a focus on discipline, respect, and faith.

Over the course of the series, viewers see the Duggar siblings and their families grow and evolve. Some of the most notable moments include Jessa's wedding to Ben Seewald, the birth of their first child Spurgeon, the weddings of Jinger and Joy-Anna, and the births of their children. The show also explores some of the challenges that the family has faced, such as Jill's difficult home birth and the aftermath of Josh's scandal.

Overall, Counting On is a show that provides an inside look into the lives of the Duggar family as they navigate adulthood, marriages, pregnancies, and parenthood while still holding onto their religious and cultural beliefs. The show has gained a large following and has created a connection between the Duggar family and viewers who appreciate their dedication to their faith, family values, and each other.

Counting On is a series that is currently running and has 12 seasons (136 episodes). The series first aired on December 13, 2015.
