A&E announced today that its critically-acclaimed docu-series Born This Way will be returning for a fourth season. The good news, which comes a month after the Emmy Award-winning show wrapped its third season, does not come as a surprise considering the recognition it has been receiving.

Born This Way premiered in 2015 and follows several men and women who were born with Down syndrome. Cameras follow them and their parents in their daily lives as they work to overcome challenges while pursuing friendships, relationships, and lifelong goals.

The cable network has ordered eight new episodes for Season 4, which is expected to premiere in 2018.
