Over 10 millions viewers tuned in to watch the latest season of HGTV's Ugliest House in America hosted by actress and comedian Retta, and for good reason!

Fans love gawking at these hideous homes and predicting which house will come out on top (bottom?) as the ugliest house in America. Each season, Retta travels near and far in search of the ugliest house before Alison Victoria swoops in and saves the day in the season finale. With just $150,000 to work with, Alison always manages to transform the ugliest house into a gorgeous home, though usually not without a few quirks.

With homeowners all over America still eager to have their home crowned the ugliest house in America, the show must go on, right? Plus one lucky homeowner needs the chance to top last season's winner: the St. Cloud, Minnesota, Barbie House!

Is Ugliest House in America Cancelled?

We have some good news for owners of ugly homes and fans of Ugliest House in America: the series has not been cancelled, and it's coming back! Retta and Alison Victoria confirmed they will both be returning for season six of the HGTV show.

The network announced that Ugliest House in America was renewed for a new six-episode season. The bad news? It won't return until 2025.

However, HGTV also announced a new spin-off series tied to the show. Retta will host the new four-episode spinoff series Scariest House in America. Instead of searching for the ugliest house, Retta will venture inside scary, haunted, and bone-chilling homes in search of the scariest house in America. In Ugliest House of America fashion, the house with the most scare quality will be designed by Alison Victoria in the series finale.

Retta admitted she initially wasn't keen on the ideal of a spooky spin-off, but begrudgingly agreed. "Not sure how I got roped into this," she said. "I don't do scary. I don't like to be scared. I don't like scary movies. Halloween is my least favorite holiday but here we are."

Of course, the perfect time for a spooky spin-off is spooky season. As fans await the next season of Ugliest House in America, they can look forward to Scariest House in America, premiering October 2024, just in time for Halloween!

The countdown is on! Ugliest House in America with Retta and Alison Victoria will be back soon. In the meantime fans can catch up on past seasons of Ugliest House in America on Discovery+ or Max.
