HGTV has announced that it has renewed fan favorite Home Town for a third season, and the brand new Restored by the Fords will get a second season.

In addition to those two renewals, HGTV has also announced that it has ordered five new shows to add to the roster in 2018. Let’s take a closer look at those five new shows.

Hidden Potential (Thirteen 30-minute episodes): Generic suburban homes get a shot of personality as builder and designer Jasmine Roth turns the builder-basic houses in Southern California into gorgeous dream homes that have personalized layouts and standout amenities.

Almost Home (Eight 60-minute episodes): Almost Home will follow Dave and Jenny Marrs as they renovate historic homes in Bentonville, Arkansas.

Saving Galveston (Eight 60-minute episodes): Saving Galveston stars Ashley and Michael Cordray, a couple that rescues and renovates historic homes in the island town of Galveston, Texas. The series run includes eight one-hour episodes.

Philly Revival (Six 30-minute episodes) Philly Revival is a series that features Rachel Street, a Philadelphia-based real estate agent, general contractor and designer, who specializes in renovating century-old homes.

Best House on the Block (Eight 30-minute episodes) follows Lauren and David Liess as they run a renovation and design company outside of Washington, D.C.

“We’re keeping our focus squarely on developing the kind of content that attracts new viewers and encourages them to sample the programming on our networks,” said John Feld, senior vice president, programming at HGTV. “Even as consumers opt to view content on non-linear platforms, Restored by the Fords and Home Town are hitting the mark as HGTV’s newest ratings successes. The HGTV pipeline is solid as we move into the next quarter and beyond with dozens more new pilots and talent in development.”

I think I’m most interested in Hidden Potential and Best House on the Block. I’m happy to see we might finally be slightly ending away from the house flipper phenomenon. The Flip or Flop franchise isn’t going anywhere, but it’s nice to see some more variety coming our way on HGTV in 2018 and beyond. I’m still waiting on Candice Olsen to make her comeback though. When is that happening, HGTV? I’m getting impatient!

Are you excited about the new shows coming up?
