Since the premiere of the show, fans saw that June Shannon seems desperate to reunite with her family after her rehab.

Fans saw that the premiere took them back through time to a previous intervention for June that failed. Next, fans saw clips from Family Crisis, which revealed June pushed her family away. Despite all their efforts, she stubbornly resisted their help so the family backed off. They realized that only their mom could decide enough was enough and sort her life out. At the end of Family Crisis, fans saw June admit to massive drug addiction. So, she agreed to rehab with her boyfriend, Geno Doak.
Now Geno Doak returns in Mama June: Road To Redemption, fans heard from Pumpkin that she doesn’t trust him. In fact, one teaser revealed that she can’t believe her mom when she says she’s sober. After all, she said that in the past. Actually, fans and the family think Geno’s the problem as he enables their mom. Nevertheless, they finally agreed to meet with June in Atlanta. June met Honey Boo Boo, (Alana) and Pumpkin. Plus, she later caught up with her grandchild, Ella Grace.
