As ABC’s Fall Schedule Loads Up On Unscripted Series, The Network Is Rebooting A Beloved Reality TV Show

Fans of "Grey’s Anatomy," "The Conners" and more scripted ABC originals are going to have to wait a while for their favorite shows to return due to the ongoing WGA writers strike. As a result of the stall, the entertainment brand loaded its fall schedule with mostly unscripted productions. Amid the changes, it would now seem that the company is bringing back one of its most beloved reality TV shows -- "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition." This news arrives 10 years after the network pulled the plug on the home improvement show and three years after its HGTV revival. It's probably fair to say that this news will be music to the ears of fans who are ready to hear the words "move that bus" again. According to The Hollywood Reporter, ABC has tapped the founders of The Home Edit -- Clea Shearer and Joanna Teplin -- to host the new revival, which comes from original production company Endemol Shine North America. Staying true to the original, the series will help families who need big renovations or complete rebuilds of their abodes. Shearer and Teplin will apparently work with the families on the creative aspects and help them figure out what the best direction is while also setting them up with smart systems. Notably, the show also has an EP in Reese Witherspoon, who produces under her Hello Sunshine banner.
