Tarek and Christina El Moussa might be done as a couple — for now, anyway — but the “Flip or Flop” family will be expanding dramatically in the coming months.
HGTV is planning a whopping five spinoffs of the popular reality show, TheWrap has learned.
The new shows will be situated in Chicago, Nashville, Atlanta, Texas and Las Vegas, and are slated to premiere this year and next.
“Because every market is unique, there was an opportunity to highlight what works in various regions by featuring successful people in different locations who had mastered the art of flipping in their town,” Allison Page, general manager, U.S. programming and development for HGTV, Food Network and Travel Channel, said of the upcoming offerings.
The Las Vegas edition will be the first spinoff to roll out, featuring Bristol and Aubrey Marunde.
The current series, which is set in Southern California, features Tarek and Christina El Moussa buying distressed properties and renovating them.
“Flip or Flop” became the subject of real-life drama in December, when the El Moussas, who have two young children together, announced that they had split up. Tarek filed for divorce in January.
News of the split was preceded by a May incident, during which law enforcement responded to a call of a “possibly suicidal male with a gun.” The call was made after Tarek retrieved a gun from the couple’s Orange County, California, home and wandered into Chino Hills State Park.
Tarek told deputies that he headed to the park to “blow off some steam,” and that he brought the gun with him as protection against mountain lions and rattlesnakes.
