Corus Entertainment’s W Network has unveiled the lineup for its fall schedule, which includes new seasons of several homegrown original series.

A new season of Property Brothers, featuring twin brothers Drew and Jonathan Scott, premieres on the Canadian network on September 3 at 8 p.m.

In the one-hour real estate/home reno show, the brothers help buyers get into their dream homes without breaking the bank by buying and transforming fixer-uppers. W Network has also added Property Brothers to its expanding ‘Shop the Show’ offerings, which makes items featured in W Network series available for viewers to purchase through partnerships with e-tailers and retailers.

On Wednesdays, the final season of Candice Tells All hits screens, starting September 4 at 7:30 p.m. The series follows designer Candice Olson from start to finish through the process of transforming and renovating homes.

And the fourth season of Come Dine With Me Canada kicks off September 30 with a week devoted to barbeque masters.

Also coming this fall are new episodes of Undercover Boss Canada, starting Thursday, September 19 at 9 p.m., and Love it or List It Vancouver, starting September 2 at 10 p.m.

Undercover Boss Canada, based on the Studio Lambert format, follows Canadian execs and CEOs who go undercover and work alongside their company employees to experience the challenges and meet the unsung heroes at the frontlines of their business.

Love it or List It Vancouver pits designer (and former Bachelorette) Jillian Harris against realtor Todd Talbot as they battle to fulfill homeowners’ lists of must-haves.

“W Network’s ratings success is built on our original W series that are huge hits with our viewers,” said Corus VP and head of TV programming and production John MacDonald, in a statement.

“This fall will be no exception as W Network rolls out new episodes of fan favorites, including Love It or List It Vancouver and Property Brothers – series that are not only wildly popular here in Canada, but resonate with international audiences as well.”
