The Duggars are done.

TLC, the network that aired the various iterations of “19 Kids and Counting” and the follow-up show “Counting On,” has dropped the Duggar family following Josh’s arrest on child porn charges.

“TLC will not be producing additional seasons of ‘Counting On,’ ” the network said in a statement to The Post. “TLC feels it is important to give the Duggar family the opportunity to address their situation privately.”

The eldest Duggar child, 33, was arrested on April 29 and charged with receiving and possessing child pornography at his home in Arkansas. The disgraced father of six pleaded not guilty and was released on bail despite Homeland Security Special Agent Gerald Faulkner admitting that the files allegedly found on Duggar’s devices were some of “the worst of the worst” that he has ever seen.

Duggar was given a trial date of July 6, 2021, but on Tuesday, the date was pushed back to November 30, 2021, Fox News reported. He awaits trial while reportedly staying in a self-contained space in the home of a third-party custodian — a family he knows through his church. He is allowed to see his children when his wife, Anna — who believes he is innocent — is present.

His parents, Jim Bob and Michelle, have also stood by him, asking fans for “prayers” for their son but calling the “accusations brought against Joshua … very serious.”
