For Immediate Release
TORONTO, February 10, 2022 – HGTV Canada brings over 90 hours of premieres this March including the network’s top-rated series with Scott’s Vacation House Rules, Farmhouse Facelift, and Canada’s #1 Specialty series, Island of Bryan (8×60).* Whether at the cottage, the farm, or the beach, theses fan favourites prove that family comes first. From the McGillivrays building their own cottage using Scott’s tried-and-tested rental rules; to siblings Billy and Carolyn bringing style, charm, and family values to each farmhouse they touch; and Bryan and Sarah Baeumler creating a new home base for the B-team off the island – these families show that no matter the design or location, what makes a home are the people inside it.
Ahead of the Season 3 premiere of Scott’s Vacation House Rules, Scott has a special project for his family and fans. Testing his rules on his own cottage project, Scott enlists the help of his wife Sabrina and their two young daughters in Scott’s Own Vacation House (4×60), premiering Monday, March 14 at 9 p.m. ET/PT. In the four-part special series, the McGillivrays turn their recently purchased waterfront property into a fun family escape. With two unique cottages, a playhouse, a gym, and a boathouse, Scott has his work cut out for him. Thankfully his design team, Debra Salmoni and new addition Giselle Bullin are along for the ride. Then come Monday, April 11 at 9 p.m. ET/PT, Scott is back to helping homeowners in the new season of Scott’s Vacation House Rules (12×60). After becoming the #3 Canadian original program on HGTV last year**, Scott returns to unlock the potential of properties throughout cottage country, renovating and redesigning the spaces into valuable rental properties. Scott’s Vacation House Rules is supported by official financial sponsor CIBC, home improvement partner Lowe’s, returning sponsor Pollard Windows & Doors, and ROCKWOOL®, the Official Insulation Supplier of HGTV Canada.
HGTV Canada’s #2 freshman Canadian original series, Farmhouse Facelift (10×60), is back for Season 2 on Tuesday, March 15 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.*** Siblings Billy and Carolyn have proven they know how to restore and reclaim the charm of heritage homes, by combining Carolyn’s stunning designs with Billy’s customized craftsmanship. This season, the duo breathe new life into a 150-year-old family homestead, help two sisters surprise their mother with a dramatic main floor makeover with French country flair, and save a busy young family on a working farm from their mid-renovation slump. Farmhouse Facelift is supported by home improvement partner Lowe’s, official paint sponsor SICO Paint, DK Woodworks, and official kitchen and bathroom fixture supplier American Standard.
The epic Island of Bryan (8×60) adventure continues in Season 4 starting Sunday, March 27 at 10 p.m. ET/PT. With their resort in the Bahamas now running smoothly, the Baeumlers plan to set up their new home base close by in Florida. But their hopes for stability are quickly overturned as they struggle to turn a run-down and dated house into a Baeumler home. Simultaneously, Sarah is expanding her design business, Bryan is training for his pilot license and the needs of Caerula Mar Club continue to call them back to the island. Bryan and Sarah are striving to reclaim some normalcy for themselves and their four children, but the path forward is filled with chaos, challenges, and high costs. Following the mid-season finale in May, the final eight episodes return this fall. Island of Bryan is sponsored in part by returning partner Royal Bank of Canada and supported by Canon Canada Inc.
Additional premieres this March include Fix My Flip (6×60), Fixer to Fabulous: Welcome Inn (4×60), and Selling the Big Easy (6×30).
