ATLANTA (CBS ATLANTA) -

Honey Boo Boo is back in the spotlight!

Six-year-old Alana Thompson has moved on from TLC's Toddlers & Tiaras to her own reality show, Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.

The first episode aired on Wednesday night on TLC.

According to TLC, each episode will follow Alana and her family in their hometown of McIntyre, GA. 

The family includes June, Alana's stay-at-home mom, Sugar Bear, Alana's chalk-mining dad, and sisters Lauryn (Pumpkin), 12, Jessica (Chubbs), 15, and Anna (Chickadee) who is 17 and pregnant.

The show follows family outings to loud and crazy family get-togethers.

Alana gained media attention after she and her mother were interviewed about a special concoction they created to pump Alana up for pageant day.

They named the concoction "go-go juice," and some parents were outraged by it. The drink was a mixture of Mountain Dew and Red Bull and is the equivalent of two cups of coffee.

In a CBS Atlanta interview, June shared how she felt about people who doubt her parenting skills. Click here to watch the interview.

CBS Atlanta also got some hilarious outtakes of Alana hamming it up. Click here to watch.
