Extreme Makeover: Home Edition gets reboot at Discovery’s HGTV

Hit format Extreme Makeover: Home Edition is getting a reboot at Discovery’s HGTV, after near seven years of hiatus.

The format is expected to land on the network with 10 fresh episodes in early 2020. The cast for the new edition is yet to be determined.

HGTV has also secured the rights to 100 existing episodes of the original series which ran on The ABC Television Network for nine seasons from 2003-2012.

At its peak Extreme Makeover was reported to have averaged nearly 16m viewers on Sunday nights.

In the show, a team of experts take on a weekly race to complete a custom home renovation for one deserving family.

The HGTV episodes of Extreme Makeover will be produced by Endemol Shine North America with Sharon Levy and DJ Nurre serving as executive producers. The company also produced the original version for ABC.

Extreme Makeover: Home Edition will be available on demand across all authenticated platforms and on the HGTV app.

“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, 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 programme that taps into every emotion and it’s the reason it was so popular with everyone in America.”
