Prep your streaming queue: Extreme Makeover: Home Edition is officially coming back to the small screen. While it might seem like our televisions have no shortage of revived series, it's not every day we see a design-centric show get a second act. (And, since most design lovers would agree that Extreme Makeover: Home Edition is part of the renovation television canon, it's safe to say that we cannot wait for the premiere.) But don't write this reboot off as a carbon copy of the mid-aughts hit! This iteration of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition has a whole new spin.

If you're just as excited about the reboot as we are—and how can you not be?—settle in; we're answering all your burning questions about the show here.

What is Extreme Makeover: Home Edition About?

Think of the hit show as the perfect mix between home reno inspo and heartwarming family fare. Each episode, a team of skilled contractors and designers joins forces to spruce up a home and turn it into a breathtaking haven of joy and possibility. But the transformation is not just about the physical changes; it's about rewriting the story of these families' lives, bringing them renewed hope and a chance to build a future filled with endless possibilities. You'll laugh, you'll cry happy tears, and you'll restore your faith in the power of community to create miracles out of the most challenging situations.

Who Will Host Extreme Makeover: Home Edition?

While Ty Pennington famously hosted the original Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, he's since hung up his tool belt. Though the show has been rebooted before—with Jesse Tyler Ferguson at the helm—the new version is set to star The Home Edit's Clea Shearer and Joanna Teplin. "We are so honored to be a part of this iconic franchise and to help change the lives of deserving families," the dynamic duo wrote on Instagram.

When Can We Watch Extreme Makeover: Home Edition?

Can't wait to tune into Extreme Makeover: Home Edition? Well, you're going to have to sit tight a little longer. According to the announcement, the show is still in development with ABC, so it's going to be a minute until production begins. That said, Clea and Joanna did mention that casting information will be out soon, so we recommend checking back here for updates. Who knows? Maybe your home could receive a color-coded touch from the Home Edit team.
