Discovery-owned home improvement cable network HGTV is set to unveil its full-scale renovation of the iconic Brady Bunch house this September.

Produced by Lando Entertainment, A Very Brady Renovation will chronicle HGTV’s biggest renovation experts as they undertake more than 9,000 hours of the demolition, renovation and meticulous replication of the Brady Bunch house.

Featured reno experts include Jonathan and Drew Scott of The Property Brothers, Mina Starsiak Hawk and Karen E. Laine of Good Bones, siblings Leanne and Steve Ford of Restored by the Fords, Jasmine Roth of Hidden Potential and Lara Spencer of Flea Market Flip.

Six Brady Bunch siblings will also partake in the renovation, including Barry Williams (Greg), Maureen McCormick (Marcia), Christopher Knight (Peter), Eve Plumb (Jan), Mike Lookinland (Bobby) and Susan Olsen (Cindy).

Cameras will follow the cast of characters as they add 2,000 square feet to the original footprint of the Brady house, all while updating the home’s living room, iconic floating staircase, dining room, family room, bedrooms, bathrooms and recreating the orange and green kitchen. HGTV also crowdsourced vintage furniture and décor items true to the original 1970s TV series.

Lando Entertainment’s Brian Lando, Francesco Giuseppe Pace, Bob Kirsh and Dean Ollins serve as executive producers on the series.

A Very Brady Renovation premieres Sept. 9, at 9 p.m. ET/PT on HGTV, kicking off with an extended 90-minute premiere episode.

A Very Brady Renovation is the programming event of the year that Brady Bunch and HGTV superfans have been waiting for,” said HGTV president Jane Latman, in a statement. “HGTV left no stone unturned, creating a perfect replica of the home down to the horse statue next to the staircase and the stuffed animal giraffe in the girls’ bedroom. Viewers will be on the edge of their seats each week to see how we pulled it all off, and we can promise they’ll be transported back in time when they see the final result.”
