We all know the challenges of parents who deal with toddler tantrums, sleepless nights, picky eaters, and infant outbursts. In such cases, families wonder if they could get someone who could magically put an end to their neverending woes. Of course, we cannot get Mary Poppins, but we know about Jo Frost, star of ‘Supernanny‘, which originally aired on ABC from 2005 and 2011.
But Frost could not stay away from helping families. She made a comeback with ‘Supernanny’ season 8, which premiered on Lifetime on January 1, 2020. And she is excited to resume her duties. Frost stated: “It feels wonderful to continue helping families. I never went away. I’ve always been helping families. But I’m very excited to be back on Supernanny, the brand I started.”
The eighth season, comprising 20 episodes, takes us to cities across the United States, including Pittstown, New Jersey; Spokane, Washington; Cortlandt Manor, NY; and Makaha, Hawaii. The format is new, no doubt, but the essence is the same. In the words of Frost herself: “The show is exactly what fans have been asking for over the years. That is more help, more tangible advice, and techniques to make their lives a lot less complicated.”
This time, Frost takes a more holistic approach, helping the family as a whole — starting from dealing with postpartum depression, parental loss, to a stay-at-home dad. She guides parents in overcoming stress, tackling social and behavioral issues, saving kids who suffer from ADHD or are obsessed with electronic devices, and guiding kids with separated parents. Each episode features one family who benefits from Frost’s refined techniques that use positive reinforcement and enhanced connectivity.
Season 8 is “addressing not just behavior that has spiraled out of control.” It is “taking a look at real families, and looking at the issues that they face every day.”
‘Supernanny’ season 8 had already finished airing its first episode. It is now all set to release its second episode. Here’s everything we know about ‘Supernanny’ season 8 episode 2.

Supernanny Season 8 Episode 1 Recap:
In episode 1, we follow Jo Frost as she makes her first stop in Pittstown, NJ, where we meet Jessica and CJ Braido and their four kids. The couple, who had been parents to two children, recently have been promoted to quadruple duty, after the birth of twins Dax and Chase.
The working parents had already faced challenges because of their opposing parenting styles. They used to rely on devices as digital babysitters. Now with four kids to manage, Nanny Jo uses her expertise to guide Jessica and CJ so that they can work together and raise their kids — without the building pressure threatening to pull them apart.
