New York [Nov. 20, 2019] Extreme Makeover: Home Edition – the world’s biggest, most transformative, inspirational and aspirational home show ever – is coming back to television with 10 new episodes on HGTV. And, to give fans an early look at the highly anticipated reboot, HGTV has released a nearly three-minute sneak peek video on HGTV.com, HGTV Instagram and HGTV Facebook. In 2020, viewers will witness the full power of massive, community-led home transformations each week, beginning with the premiere episode of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition on Sunday, Feb. 16, at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
New host Jesse Tyler Ferguson and special guests, including Anthony Anderson, Derek Hough, Ty Pennington, LeAnn Rimes, OWN’s Laila Ali, Food Network’s Tyler Florence and HGTV stars David Bromstad, Tamara Day, Tarek El Moussa and Jasmine Roth, are all featured in Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. In each episode, a deserving family gets the renovation help they need to change their lives. Working alongside Jesse, neighbors, local building experts and celebrity guests, the show’s regularly appearing designers – Breegan Jane, Carrie Locklyn and Darren Keefe – create customized homes that perfectly accommodate the needs of each inspiring family.
“Today’s short teaser video is just a taste of what everyone can expect from Extreme Makeover: Home Edition,” said Jane Latman, president, HGTV. “We reimagined television’s most iconic home renovation show. We cast Jesse as host, reviewed hundreds of deeply emotional family stories, added more special guests who have a passion to help others, and executed truly unbelievable, life-changing, whole-home renovations. With help from more than 10,000 volunteers – families, friends and neighbors – sharing more than 560,000 hours of their own time, we improved the lives of 10 special families and created another can’t miss television series on HGTV.”

The whole-home overhauls will include interior, exterior and landscaping – all completed in record time while the family is sent away.
