‘House Hunters Renovation’ is an American home improvement reality television series that is broadcast on HGTV. It is a new spin-off of the long-running show ‘House Hunters’, that is also broadcast on HGTV. ‘House Hunters Renovation’ first aired on HGTV in the second half of 2012, and since then, the popular show has seen a whopping 16 seasons being aired. Now, fans are curious as to whether HGTV will renew the show again for a Season 17.
Unlike the original ‘House Hunters’ show where individuals, couples, and families search for houses to buy in each 30 minute episode, ‘House Hunters Renovation’ has more to offer. Featuring one-hour-long episodes, ‘House Hunters Renovation’ has two parts. The first half of each episode follows an individual/couple/family as they search for houses, narrow their options down to three, and finally purchase a house. The second half follows the purchasers as they make renovations to their newly-purchased homes.
House Hunters Renovation Cast: Who is in it?
Owing to the format of the show, participants, of course, change with every season and episode. However, since 2009, the show has featured Andromeda Dunker as the narrator, and it is likely that she will return again if HGTV renews the show for yet another season.
House Hunters Renovation Plot: What is it about?
‘House Hunter Renovation’ centers around individuals, couples, or families searching for a new home. In each episode, the buyers have to choose one house amongst the three presented to them. The show team revisits the new house of the homeowners a few months later, and the owners describe the changes they have made in their new house and narrate their experiences pertaining to renovation and settling down in a new place. When the show’s renovation experts turn the houses into a dream home for the owners, it is a treat to watch the plethora of emotions and excitement on their faces. Sometimes, the renovation team also faces various problems which includes consent issues, structural surprises and more, all of which adds to the drama in the show.
Season 16 began airing in early 2019. The first episode of the season followed the story of a Los Angeles law enforcement officer and his wife trying buy their first house. After selecting a house and buying it, the couple have to use their moderate budget wisely as they face several challenges pertaining to the renovation of the house. In a similar fashion, episode 2 followed a Boston couple, who ditched their cramped condominium to find a new, more spacious home in the suburbs. The rest of the episodes in the season follow the stories of similar individuals, couples, and families as they look to transform their lives by moving into new spaces which they can call home.
In terms of reception, ‘House Hunters Renovation’ enjoys a mediocre overall rating of 6.5/10 on IMDb. Critics, however, have not had much to say on the show, so we cannot say what they feel about it.
