Prepare for plenty of bus moving in the new year — Extreme Makeover: Home Edition is getting the reboot treatment!
HGTV has announced that the community-led home transformation show will return to TV (moving from ABC to HGTV) in February with 10 new episodes, a new host, celebrity guests and a trio of regularly-appearing designers ready to customize homes for each of the families featured on the show.
Taking over hosting duties for the rebooted series is actor Jesse Tyler Ferguson, according to HGTV. Joining Jesse along the way are 10 special celebrity guests, including Anthony Anderson, Derek Hough, Ty Pennington, LeAnn Rimes, Laila Ali, Tyler Florence and HGTV stars David Bromstad, Tamara Day, Tarek El Moussa and Jasmine Roth. Designers for the show are Breegan Jane, Carrie Locklyn and Darren Keefe.

Also working alongside Jesse, the special guests and designers will be neighbors and local building experts — in typical ‘Extreme Makeover: Home Edition’ fashion — as the deserving family featured on each episode receives a life changing home renovation.
In a sneak peek released by the network, viewers get a glimpse at the emotional and inspirational reveals in store for the series reboot.
“Today’s short teaser video is just a taste of what everyone can expect from ‘Extreme Makeover: Home Edition,'” said Jane Latman, president of 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 new episodes will be produced by Endelmol Shine North America — the same company that produced the original version of the show for ABC.
‘Extreme Makeover: Home Edition’ premieres Sunday, February 16 on HGTV. Check out a sneak peek below!
