Today, TLC announced the expansion of the season 9 premiere of hit returning series The Little Couple to a two-hour block on Tuesday, September 19 starting at 8/7c. The supersized premiere will feature a one-hour special following Bill as he heads back to the beloved city to pitch in with the Hurricane Harvey relief efforts.

We'll check in on the couple as they discuss the effect of Harvey on friends, family, and strangers, as well as how they are attempting to make a difference in any way they can. As Jen stays back with the kids, Bill heads to Houston with his brothers Tom, a fire chief, and Joe, a former first responder, to help strangers whose homes have been badly damaged, and volunteer handing out pet food. Eventually making their way to a pet rescue, where a lot of displaced animals are being sheltered, Bill's brother, Tom ultimately adopts a puppy affected by the storm.

The special will point to how viewers can help, by visiting TLC.com/Harvey to help donate to the relief efforts. Donations will help Save the Children protect vulnerable children and provide desperately needed relief to families. In the wake of devastation, Save The Children are working around the clock to provide family-friendly supplies and services to survivors. Donate here or text CHILDREN to 707070 to support rescue efforts.

The couple and their children are currently staying with family after evacuating their home in St. Petersburg, Florida, as Hurricane Irma makes its way up the coast.

As Jen details in an Instagram video on Sunday, "We are grateful to be safe and sound up here in the northwest, the kids are doing great. Now we're just praying for the safety of our loved ones who are still in central Florida. Please keep everybody in Irma's path in your prayers today."

The two-hour season premiere of The Little Couple airs Sept. 19 at 8/7c on TLC and catch up before the premiere on TLC GO.
