Jill Duggar and her sister Jessa reunited with TLC crew members a week after the network announced the cancellation of their reality show "Counting On."

Jill shared a photo on her Instagram Story Tuesday featuring her, sister Jessa, brother-in-law Ben Seewald and their respective children. People obtained a screenshot of Jill's snap, where they were joined by a few crew members of "Counting On."

"Loved getting to do lunch with some of our old crew family today!" Jill captioned the photo. "These guys are some of the best! [red heart emoji] Love y'all."

On Monday, Jill and her husband Derick Dillard released a statement on their website addressing the cancellation of "Counting On." They revealed that they learned about the news at the same time the world did and noted that their family was quite "busy" around this time.

"We first heard of the cancellation when both a friend & a cousin each texted us after seeing TLC's statement online. We do not know how long the cancellation had been planned," they wrote.

In their statement, Jill and her husband also spoke about their bond with the crew members whom they said they consider family.

"It’s been over 4 years now since we chose to step away from the show, and, although we were initially barred from sharing our decision to leave the show, we have opened up a little more recently on our social media. During our years on the show, we had many great experiences with the network, and several of the crew members have even become like family to us!" they continued.

The couple admitted that they "faced many pressures" and "unexpected challenges" that forced them to leave the show.

Their exit in 2017 came as Derick faced backlash for expressing transphobic sentiments online, People reported.

Following Josh Duggar's arrest on child pornography charges in April, Derick had liked several tweets calling on TLC to cancel "Counting On." Josh has pleaded not guilty to charges and awaits a November trial.

Meanwhile, Jinger Duggar and her husband, Jeremy Vuolo, also released a statement regarding the cancellation of the show, saying they understood the network’s decision.

"We wholeheartedly agree with TLC's decision not to renew 'Counting On' and are excited for the next chapter in our lives. We'd like to thank our fans, friends and the amazing film crew who have shown us love and support. We look forward to continuing our creative journey in Los Angeles and seeing what the future holds," they wrote.
