U.S. cable networks are renewing home renovation and real estate shows, with HGTV ordering more Renovation Raiders (pictured) and Bravo lining up season six of Million Dollar Listings Los Angeles.
HGTV has ordered a second season of Renovation Raiders after its first season, which debuted on May 30, pulled in more than 6.1 million total viewers, according to the net.
Hosted by licensed contractor Amy Matthews, the series follows Matthews and her construction crew as they pull off a remodel while the homeowners are out for dinner and a movie.
The hour-long episodes feature secret site visits, a practice renovation in a warehouse, and delay tactics in order to transform a room in less than five hours.
“We are pleased with the out-of-the-gate success of Renovation Raiders,” said Kathleen Finch, senior VP and GM of HGTV. “Our viewers are captivated by the mission impossible, edge-of-your-seat renovation projects, making it the perfect time to renew the series.”
Elsewhere, Bravo will see the return of Million Dollar Listings Los Angeles on August 7 at 9 p.m. EST/PST.
With a rebounding market, real estate agents Josh Altman, Josh Flagg and Madison Hildebrand battle each other for high-end clients and multi-million dollar estates.
Season six, produced by World of Wonder, will introduce Play Live, which allows viewers to play along, guessing the listing of a property or reacting to how an agent handled a deal.
