The wait is over: HGTV has set a premiere date for its “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” reboot — and dropped a first look at the updated series, which will debut in the new year.
The 10-episode show will premiere Sunday, Feb. 16, at 9/8c on HGTV, bringing “the world’s biggest, most transformative, inspirational and aspirational home show ever” back to TV.
The new “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” will be hosted by Jesse Tyler Ferguson, who will be joined by special guests like 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.
“In each episode, a deserving family gets the renovation help they need to change their lives,” according to HGTV. “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.”
Here’s the cable channel’s description for the reboot:
HGTV’s spin on the iconic home renovation series Extreme Makeover: Home Edition will showcase great stories, inspired volunteers and gorgeous home renovations for families who give back to their communities. The whole-home overhauls will include interior, exterior and landscaping–all completed in record time while the family is sent away.

“Today’s short teaser video is just a taste of what everyone can expect from Extreme Makeover: Home Edition,” Jane Latman, president of HGTV, said. “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.”
