Little People, Big World fans, if you’ve been craving more of the Roloffs, we have huge news for you.

Celebuzz can report exclusively that the Roloffs are coming back to the network with a new weekly series, Little People, Big World: Wedding Farm, premiering its first of six one hour episodes on Tuesday, Nov. 13 at 9 PM on TLC.

Produced by Gay Rosenthal Productions, the new series follows Matt Roloff and his wife, Amy Roloff, as they embark on a new wedding venue business in which they restore a barn on part of the additional 75 acres of land viewers watched them purchase on their Oregon farm on a recent special.

“This was not something where TLC came and said, ‘Let’s do this and that,’ ”  Matt tells Celebuzz exclusively. "This was a business plan that we put together during our off time from the show. And this was how we were going to justify the purchase of the investment of that farm.”

What else did Matt and Amy tell us about their new business venture and return to a weekly series?

“It was something Amy and I thought we could collaborate on well together,” Matt explains of the new business. “I like to build projects.”

“I have the hospitality hosting,” Amy adds. “And I can help with people’s ideas and really getting them to utilize the venue. That’s an advantage for a big event.”

“It’s just been fun to collaborate and have things that we can work together on now that the kids are moving on down the road,” Matt also points out.

The couple says the production came together fairly quickly. “We were just going to see how it would work, how it would turn out,” says Amy, 48. “It was kind of like a trial by error. And then TLC ran with it.”

“It got back to the basics of what we used to do in the early days of the show,” Matt, 50, adds. “TLC was able to mobilize very quickly and were able to get in here really quickly, during the restore of the barn… and to make a big mud hole into a venue.”

Even though TLC has aired several LPBW specials since the original series ended in December 2010, shooting a weekly series took a little getting used to for the family.

“Yeah, I think it was something to get back into on a weekly basis and kind of organize all these different schedules around and stuff,” Amy explains. “It certainly takes about a couple of days and then it’s like, ‘Oh, yeah, this is what we used to do.’ ”

The couple points out the experience of creating a wedding venue was very different as their kids start their own young adult lives.

“That’s probably one of the hardest things and one of the reasons we decided to use this portion of the farm for weddings, because it’s something Matt and I can probably handle and do,” Amy says. “We don’t necessarily need the kids around here all the time. But when they’re able to help out, it’s great.”

On the new series, Jeremy Roloff, 22, visits several times from college and even utilizes what he's learned as the photographer for a few weddings. His fraternal twin brother, Zachary Roloff (the only little person of the four children) continues to find his own career path and his way through his first major romantic relationship. Molly Roloff, 19, graduates from high school and prepares to go off for college. And the youngest, 15-year-old Jacob Roloff, will become the only child to live at home without his siblings.

“The Roloff family continues with life-changing moments in their own lives in addition to making them for someone else,” Amy, whose first cookbook, Short and Simple Family Recipes, was released this month, points out.

“It’s not like Amy and I are over the hill at 50,” Matt says. “Amy and I both have a renewed sense of passion and excitement about what we’re doing. We’re doing it together and it has been a really, really interesting turn of events for us.”

Ah, yes, we should also point out that Matt and Amy will be celebrating their 25th wedding anniversary. That should come as a comfort for those who worried about the state of the couple’s relationship when the original series ended.

“I think when you realize the amount of years that you’ve been together,” Amy tells us of how they got over the rough patch in their marriage. “You’ve definitely had your good times and bad times, you know up the hill and down the hill, but in the end it’s a life shared together. We’ve done some really great things and let’s find some ways to keep that going.”

“Who said the troubles are over, anyway?” Matt interjects with his characteristic sarcastic humor.

TLC will also continue to produce standalone specials with the family, which have so far averaged 1.5 million viewers, beyond this new series.

    Ugh! Why are they bringing this piggy family back. They are so dirty. The house looks like it belongs on horders. Their daughter is the only one that doesn't have any baggage. Isn't it rich, that these two are having a wedding show. All they ever do is bicker, I don't care how long they've been married. There is a major lack of respect between the two of them. Matt Roloff...ugh, all he does is brag about his plans and projects. Mean while he sits there like a king, bossing everyone around.
