Do-it-yourself network HGTV has green lit full seasons of the series Flip or Flop in Chicago, Forth Worth and Nashville.

The newest additions to the franchise are slated to premiere in 2018. Flip or Flop Chicago, Flip or Flop Fort Worth (pictured) and Flip or Flop Nashville will showcase couples that have mastered the art of buying, renovating and selling real estate for a profit in their own town.

“The original Flip or Flop delivered more than 17 million total viewers this season alone, so we know that the series format appeals to our audience,” said Allison Page, general manager, U.S. programming and development for HGTV, DIY Network, Food Network, Cooking Channel, Travel Channel and Great American Country, in a statement. “Authenticity, expertise, experience and results are the key drivers for the success of Flip or Flop, but when we factor in the unique market differentiators and successful people in other locations, it’s a winning formula for strong ratings.”

In Flip or Flip Chicago, Mark and Liz Perez work to improve older neighborhoods one house at a time, while military veterans-turned-real-estate-investors Andy and Ashley Williams of Flip or Flop Forth Worth buy, rehabilitate and sell run-down houses in Texas.

Real estate expert Page Turner and former NFL player and builder DeRon Jenkins work together to transform properties into beautiful family homes in Flip or Flop Nashville, and in Flip or Flop Atlanta Ken and Anita Corsini run a family business to update old Southern houses into modern homes that retain their original charm.

Flip or Flop Vegas stars MMA fighter Bristol Marunde and his wife, Aubrey, who scoop up some of the city’s most neglected homes and transform them into beautiful properties.

The first spin-off in the franchise, Flip or Flop Vegas, will premiere on April 6, at 9 p.m. ET/PT, while Flip or Flop Atlanta will premiere in June.
