9 home renovation shows to watch now that Fixer Upper is ending
Fixer Upper’s Over
Chip and Joanna Gaines announced Tuesday that the upcoming fifth season of their home renovation show Fixer Upper will be its last. The Waco, Texas couple’s adorable antics (Chip goofing off with antiques, Joanna rolling her eyes) and beautiful renovations quickly made Fixer Upper HGTV’s highest-rated show. The final season premieres Nov. 28, so you still have time to become invested in another house-flipping couple before it’s over for good. Click through for nine more home renovation shows to watch to get your Fixer Upper fix.
Behind the Design
You’ll have to let Fixer Upper go, but you can hold out hope for more Chip and Joanna. In March, the couple announced a series spinoff Behind the Design, which will feature Joanna sharing her interior decorating expertise designing the homes they flip. Unless the announcement of the original series ending alters the spin-off, we can expect Behind the Design in spring 2018.
Flip or Flop
It’s the house flipping series that launched a thousand spin-offs. Well, only six, actually, but the original’s success speaks for itself. Southern California couple Christina and Tarek El Moussa, who created the HGTV juggernaut in 2013, split in December but still work as partners on the show. That should make for some...interesting TV. The seventh season premieres in December.
Flip or Flop Atlanta, Ft. Worth, etc.
The second spin-off after Vegas, Flip or Flop Atlanta premiered in July with couple Ken and Anita Corsini and has already been renewed for a second season. Ft. Worth, featuring couple Andy and Ashley Williams, is the next city waiting to be flipped by the franchise, and its first season will premiere Nov. 2 on HGTV.
Property Brothers: Buying and Selling
We want to expand your horizons from just Property Brothers, so we recommend Property Brothers: Buying and Selling. One of several spin-offs from brothers Jonathan and Drew Scott, this follows the pair helping one family rehab their up-for-sale home, while also looking for a great new property to buy. Or, if you’re just interested in the eye candy, watch Drew on Dancing With the Stars this season.
First Time Flippers
This series from the DIY Network follows new homeowners as they try to rehab and resell a house for the first time. If you can handle the stress of amateurs trying their hand at home renovation and potentially breaking the bank, this show is for you. The series is currently in its sixth season on the HGTV sister network.
HGTV personality Nicole Curtis is back after a two-year hiatus. After the birth of her son, a custody battle with her ex, and a lawsuit from the city of Minneapolis, the Rehab Addict star announced on Twitter in August an eighth season is starting Oct. 4. Curtis prides herself on restoring pre-World War II homes to their former glory, rather than modernizing and renovating. And in case you didn't know, she just! wants! brick!
Nate & Jeremiah by Design
This series from interior designer couple Nate Berkus and Jeremiah Brent might be ushering in a wave of gay home renovation content. In light of its successful first season (it was renewed by TLC for season 2 in August) HGTV aired a pilot of another husband-husband house flipping duo on Down to the Studs in June. In By Design, Nate and Jeremiah help families escape amateur renovation and design nightmares, like DIYs gone terribly wrong.
This mother-daughter duo wrapped the second season of their Indianapolis-based HGTV home rehab show earlier this month. Karen E. Laine and Mina Starsiak Hawk, formerly an attorney and a waitress, respectively, opened up their flipping business in 2008 and are committed to helping their hometown. “We want to revitalize neighborhoods,” Laine said in an interview with PEOPLE. “We know we’ve done well when we can’t afford to buy a house in a neighborhood anymore.”
Texas Flip n Move
In this DIY Network series, three teams of Texas home renovators compete to buy low and sell high. However, the series’ format significantly raises the stakes on other flipping shows. The teams buy the homes at auction, without the land, meaning they have to move their whole purchase in one piece to a new lot. Watch if you want to see competitive banter between some sassy Texans. The show’s seventh season premieres Oct. 6.
