HGTV’s hit series Flip or Flop has been picked up for a new season slated to premiere in August 2020, featuring formerly married real estate and house-flipping experts Christina Anstead and Tarek El Moussa.
In the press release from HGTV, we learn that along with Christina and Tarek’s incredible renovations, the show’s 9th season will continue to follow the two as they co-parent the two children they share and run a successful business.
“Christina and Tarek’s relatable, personal journey attracts millions of viewers who now have a true emotional stake in their story and want to see more,” HGTV President Jane Latman said in the press release. “Their story is read, compelling and filled with the hallmarks of HGTV hits—family and unforgettable personalities with home-related expertise who are passionate about the work that turns houses into homes.”
On Thursday, Christina shared her excitement about Season 9 of ‘Flip or Flop’ on Instagram.
“And just like that – the band is back together – again,” she posted, along with a photo of the crew. “I cannot believe we are shooting SEASON 9!!! It’s so crazy to think about. When we were shooting a pilot in 2010 I never in my life thought it would be picked up for a while series let alone a TV show that has lasted 9 seasons.”

And just like that – the band is back together – again. 🎉 I cannot believe we are shooting SEASON 9!!! It’s so crazy to think about. When we were shooting a pilot in 2010 I never in my life thought it would be picked up for a whole series let alone a tv show that has lasted 9 seasons. I love the crew we have worked with all these years. They have had our backs through thick and thin – when tabloid reporters were hounding them for the inside scoop and paparazzi were showing up on set- we all grouped together, put our heads down and worked hard to keep this show going. Our producer @mpando72 has become one of my closest friends and I’m so grateful for his humor and positive attitude on set- he’s one of a kind for sure. This season we are bringing new fresh designs and a new life back into it. It’s been 3.5 years since Tarek and I separated and we are both in a good place and ready to make a great season. Thank you so much to all our supporters- I know there can be SO much judgment and negativity and I cannot thank all of the positive amazing people on here enough. ♥️. Thank you to our amazing entertainment attorney @rogerbehle (not pictured) that man has saved my life so many times. I hope everyone has a man like Roger in their lives. P.S yes Tarek looks like a giant in this photo. 😂
She went on to thank the show’s producer and also comment on she and Tarek’s status post-split.
“It’s been 3.5 years since Tarek and I separated and we are both in a good place and ready to make a great season,” she said.
Tarek has also moved on since his divorce and is currently dating luxury real estate agent Heather Rae Young.

❤️❤️❤️ I can’t tell you how long I’ve been waiting to post a photo just like this! . As you know…life has been pretty tough on me since 2013. I look at the last 6 years and sometimes wonder how I made it lol. . It was extremely tough fighting two cancers, back surgery and a public divorce. . I hit my rock bottom years ago and found myself lost and alone. It wasn’t easy but I got up every day and believed life would improve no matter how bad it was. . Well…I’m happy to say it got better:) like way freaking better! . I honestly gave up on love until I saw @heatherraeyoung last summer on the boat next to mine:) . The second I laid eyes on her I knew there was something special about her and I was right! . She is absolutely incredible and me and the babies love and adore her:) . Thank you @heatherraeyoung for coming into our life and making this photo possible:) . I just love you and our little family ❤️❤️❤️ so much!! . Side note- Do you like the dope pajamas 😂😂😂?
In addition to the new ‘Flip or Flop’ season coming next year, Christina’s solo show, Christina on the Coast, will return for a second season premiering Thursday, January 2. As for Tarek, his new original series, Flipping 101 w/ Tarek El Moussa, is slated to premiere in early 2020.
