Lifestyle network HGTV has reinforced its primetime scheduling throughout quarters three and four, led by the expansion of staple franchises Property Brothers and Flip or Flop.

In addition, the Scripps Networks Interactive-owned network’s development strategy has generated 40 pilots and more than 75 concepts in incubation for the 2018 pipeline.

“HGTV continues to deliver more than 66 million total viewers per month because home renovations, fantasy lifestyles and house flipping are universal, family-friendly topics that resonate with everyone,” said John Feld, SVP of original programming for HGTV, DIY Network and Great American Country, in a statement.

Flip or Flop Atlanta (pictured), which has been slated for a July premiere, features Ken and Anita Corsini as they run a family business that renovates old Southern houses into modern homes that retain their original charm. The series will be accompanied in November by sister series Flip or Flop Fort Worth, in which military veterans-turned-real-estate-investors Andy and Ashley Williams buy, rehabilitate and sell run-down homes in Texas.

Elsewhere, the second half of the year will feature new episodes from Chip and Joanna Gaines’ home reno series Fixer Upper and the original Flip or Flop featuring Tarek and Christina El Moussa, while My Lottery Dream Home has accelerated post-production on new episodes.

Drew and Jonathan Scott, meanwhile, will return to HGTV’s airwaves in Property Brothers at Home: Drew’s Honeymoon House.

Also in the home and garden channel’s pipeline for the year are Tiny Paradise, which joins HGTV’s lineup alongside new seasons of Tiny House, Big Living and Tiny Luxury.

In addition, the House Hunters franchise will add two new installments via House Hunters Family and House Hunters Outside the Box.

The network also has increased production on new episodes of Beachfront Bargain Hunt, Beach Hunters, Island Life and Mexico Life.
