Extreme Makeover: Home Edition Revived by HGTV


Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, which originally ran for nine seasons on ABC in the U.S., has been ordered for ten all-new episodes by HGTV.

HGTV is planning to showcase its own experts in the weekly race to complete a custom, whole home renovation for one deserving family. The new episodes are expected to premiere in early 2020.

HGTV also secured the rights to air 100 existing episodes of the original series, which ran from 2003 to 2012 on ABC. At its peak, during the 2004-05 season, Extreme Makeover: Home Edition averaged nearly 16 million viewers on Sunday nights.

Endemol Shine North America will be producing. The company was also behind the original ABC version.

“This is a big win for HGTV and we can’t wait to put our stamp on it,” said Kathleen Finch, chief lifestyle brands officer at Discovery Inc., the parent company of HGTV. “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition was must-see viewing for years because it combined moving stories of families and communities with life-changing home renovations. It’s the type of program that taps into every emotion and it’s the reason it was so popular with everyone in America.”
