U.S. net HGTV has signed on for a second season of furniture design series, Ellen’s Design Challenge (pictured).
Co-produced by DeGeneres’ A Very Good Production and A. Smith & Co., in association with Telepictures, the second season of the show – which bowed this past January – is to return in January 2016, and will jump from six to nine episodes including an hour-long, behind-the-scenes special.
The series was conceptualized by the comedian and challenges contestants to sketch, design and build creative furniture pieces. The winner receives US$100,000 as well as a feature in HGTV Magazine.
The new season will feature more competitors as well as special guests on the judging panel. Submissions are currently being accepted on the show’s official website.
