I’m Jazz season 8
TLC’s hit series I Am Jazz premieres its eighth season on Tuesday, January 24, 2023.
The show, which has followed Jennings since 2015, has been both championed and criticized for following a transgender subject through all his trials and tribulations. When the series began, Jennings was only 14 years old.
At the start of Season 8, Jazz is 22 years old and returning home after her first year alone at Harvard University.
Description for the new season promises drama:
After her first year at Harvard on her own, Jazz returns home to Florida for the summer and asserts her newfound independence. Jazz works to better assert herself in her social and dating life as she goes on several dates, including a speed dating event with her transgender friend Jojo, who now goes by the name Jaclyn. But ugly comments come out on Jazz’s dating app, and she realizes she’ll always have to fight the haters. As Jazz embarks on more social activities, her mental health issues come into play again, culminating in a breakdown. His mother tries to find the best way to support her young son, and on the advice of a psychic, Jeanette takes a step back so that Jazz can grow up. However, when Jazz receives a death threat when she returns to college, her parents step forward.
