Discovery, Inc.-owned lifestyle channel TLC has renewed acclaimed home makeover series Trading Spaces for a second season, its 10th season overall.

Produced by Authentic Entertainment, a subsidiary of Endemol Shine North America, Trading Spaces features two sets of neighbors who trade rooms for two days, and with the help of a designer and carpenter makeover a room with a US$2,000 budget.

Season nine’s finale will air on June 2 and features legacy designer Doug Wilson, new designer Kahi Lee, and carpenters Brett Tutor and Joanie Sprague revamping spaces in Atlanta.

According to a release from TLC, Trading Spaces currently ranks as No. 1 in cable in its premiere time period among key women W25-54/18-49 demos. TLC also ranks as the No. 2 cable network on Saturday night with W25-54 in 2Q18 to-date.

In July 2017, TLC announced that the hour-long home reno show would be returning to its airwaves with original host Paige Davis. Trading Spaces aired for eight seasons on TLC before the network pulled it in 2008.

“The response to the revival of Trading Spaces, from longtime devotees to newfound superfans alike, has been seismic, and we are proud to continue the celebration in 2019,” said Howard Lee, president and GM of TLC, in a statement.
