Christina on the Coast Season 1: Premiere Date, Cast, Host, Update

Home improvement is all about inspirational ideas and expert tips; we shall all agree to that. If we see any house renovation idea, we are like — “Wow, that was so easy, why didn’t I think of that before?” Well, HGTV’s reality docu-series, headlined by designer and real estate expert, Christina Angstead, is all about motivating homeowners to get started with their long-pending remodels. As the official synopsis goes, it’s about creating “luxe spaces filled with distinctive design elements and cool SoCal style.” Titled, ‘Christina on the Coast’, the show premieres on Discovery-owned HGTV on May 23, 2019.

Christina on the Coast Cast: Who is in it?

As we already mentioned, Christina Anstead hosts this HGTV documentary show. She is an American real estate investor and TV personality, whom you might already know from HGTV’s other hit series, ‘Flip or Flop’, where she features alongside her ex-husband Tarek El Moussa.

Apart from Christina, her blended family also makes cameo appearances in the program. You can catch regular glimpses of Ant Anstead, her current husband, in every almost every episode of the series.

Christina on the Coast Plot: What is it about?

‘Christina on the Coast’ is Anstead’s solo show that follows her as she embarks on various design projects. Apart from this, it also lends insights into her personal life. We get to see how the couple goes about listing and selling her previous home in Yorba Linda and embarking on a fresh house hunt in Newport Beach. Additionally, we witness how they renovate their new property. She designs clients’ houses as well, thus making the concept of this show completely different from that of ‘Flip or Flop‘ — which mainly revolves around designing houses for the masses. Here, she remodels homes according to her clients’ personal style, which involves a lot of interaction and getting to know people. Rather than just knocking down walls, it explores more luxurious, high-end design trends. As she offers advice to homeowners, viewers at home also get a few transformation tips which they can use in their own living spaces.

Here are a few examples of makeover projects that Christina undertakes across the episodes. She helps out her childhood friend, Cassie, who moves back to her home in Anaheim Hills, California. The property has not been updated for the last 17 years and Christina needs to work her magic in transforming this outdated space, focussing particularly on the kitchen, living, and dining area. (SPOILER: She also surprises her friend with an extravagant outdoor patio for their buddies to hang out together!). Next, she tackles a couple’s old and dingy master suite home, which really demands a good remodel. Here, she works toward converting the bathroom and bedroom into stunning, functional spaces. Again, she attempts to aid a couple in altering their compact, drab master suite into a dreamy bathroom in their Huntington Beach home.

We already mentioned that we also get to see Christina and her family’s own makeover journey. Cameras follow her and Ant as they aim to complete their kitchen renovation before the arrival of the second child. We also get to witness the couple as they give a full metamorphosis to their backyard, converting it into an all-inclusive outdoor paradise, complete with tropical vibes, a water slide, outdoor kitchen, bar, and hot tub.

‘Christina on the Coast’ focuses on this blonde, pretty designer as she does what she loves best. She has already mentioned this on her official press release: “Design is my favorite part of the house-flipping process and I can’t wait to be able to now work directly with clients and create a space they’ve always dreamed of having.” Along the way, she has several interesting tips to offer. According to her, the five must-haves for a home renovation are a matching paint color palette, lavish carpeting, personal elements like family photos, beautiful lighting, and countertops. She further adds that her favorite room remodel is the kitchen because this is where people gather and hang out. Now, if you want more such bits of advice, then keep your calendars marked and watch the show!

Christina on the Coast Season 1 Release Date: When will it premiere?

‘Christina on the Coast’ premieres with its first episode on May 23, 2019, at 9 PM on HGTV. The show comprises eight episodes and you can check out the entire airing schedule here. In addition to this, a digital series, ‘Christina on the Coast: Unfiltered’, airs one new episode every week on the HGTV app, HGTV.com, and HGTV’s Youtube Channel. Each part releases a week after the linear premiere on the channel. Here, you get to see Anstead’s behind-the-scenes footage, where she recalls her favorite scenes and designs from the series — apart from sharing details about her life.

So, will there be a season 2? Noting the star’s immaculate skills with high-end makeovers and home design, we bet, one season is not going to quench the thirst of viewers. And with the booming home improvement market in the US, audiences will definitely demand more of her expert tips. Moreover, we have already witnessed the popularity of her other real-estate HGTV show, ‘Flip or Flop’, which has now become a franchise. Therefore, we are almost sure that another installment is surely in the making (though there’s no official confirmation yet). But if that happens, as per our best guess (going by the release schedule of her parallel series), ‘Christina on the Coast’ season 2 should premiere sometime in May 2020.
