TLC has given an order for additional episodes of a reality series that has become a pop culture sensation and a lightning rod for criticism -- "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo."

People magazine reports: “Alana Thompson [Honey Boo Boo] and her ‘cra-azy’ family -- dad Sugar Bear, mom June and big sisters Pumpkin, Chickadee and Chubbs -- will be back for even more Southern-fried shenanigans. TLC has ordered additional episodes of the hit series, the network tells People exclusively.”

In a statement, Amy Winter, general manager of TLC, said: "Alana and her family have become a pop culture phenomenon. What you see is what you get, and we are excited to share even more of their unbridled hilarity, sincerity and love with our viewers."

People adds: “Fans will also be able to celebrate Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas with the Georgia family, who will appear in three ‘HOLLAday’ specials.”
