HGTV has greenlit 11 new series and put three more pilots into production as the cable network readies its 2021-22 programming slate.

The order includes more than 85 episodes featuring newcomers to the network as well as popular returning talent like Mike Holmes (pictured), and Ken and Anita Corsini in new series. Here’s a rundown of HGTV’s new programming:

Holmes Family Rescue, featuring Mike Holmes teaming up with his kids, Michael Holmes, Jr. and Sherry Holmes, to bail out clients who have nowhere else to turn after living through botched construction jobs.

Flipping Showdown sees Ken and Anita Corsini buying three investment properties with their own money, giving the opportunity to three teams of Atlanta house flippers to design and renovate the homes in just six months. The Corsinis will judge each team, with the winner receiving $100,000 and the chance to join the Corsinis’ company.

First Home Fix (working title) spotlights designers and real-life couple Austin Coleman and Raisa Kuddus as they design custom renovations for young newlywed and millennial clients.

Moving for Love follows long-distance relationships as the couples try to find their first home together, in which one half of the couple will have to completely uproot their life.

Why the Heck Did I Buy This House? (working title) finds San Antonio-based designer, renovator and ex-Survivor winner Kim Wolfe rescuing homeowners who are experiencing buyer’s remorse.

Renovation Remix sees husband and wife designers Kele Dobrinski and Christina Valencia help homeowners with different preferences to create a “mashup design” to please them both.

Call the Closer follows real estate phenom Lauren Risley as she helps picky clients find the right home and guides them through the renovation process to create the home of their dreams.

Home Inspector Joe features Joe Mazza and his designer, Noel Gatts, assisting house hunters looking for help repairing crucial safety issues at risky properties within their budget.

Building Roots follows husband and wife Ben and Cristi Dozier build, design and renovate boundary-pushing projects, from small renovations to massive builds of unique and extraordinary homes.

Renovation Goldmine focuses on the new trend of “upcycling,” and features married couple Joe and Meg Piercy as they renovate Chicago properties and breathe new life into their clients’ existing furniture and other pieces, with the money saved ensuring their clients get the home overhauls they’ve always wanted.

My Flippin Fortune (working title) is billed as a social experiment series, following a pair of successful house-flipping couples dropped into an unfamiliar city where they have to turn an initial $1,000 into a $1 million home sale in just six months, flipping homes on the local market.

HGTV has also announced several pilots in development to premiere in the next year. These projects include Flip It To the Maccs (working title), about the McMiller brothers, Joe (a real estate agent and builder) and Willie (a standup comic) transforming rundown properties in their hometown of St. Louis; Family of Property Love (working title), about a family-run Philadelphia renovation business; and Revealed, featuring custom home renovation projects inspired by family history and ancestry.

“We continue to break the boundaries of the home genre with unique, buzzy show concepts, celebrated experts and dynamic influencers,” Jane Latman, president of HGTV, said in a news release. “There are so many untapped stories of home and family that still need to be told, and HGTV is searching for them each and every day.”
