Returning to the network, Drew and Jonathan Scott make more houses into forever homes for couples across Vancouver, Los Angeles, and Las Vegas in new episodes of Property Brothers: Forever Home (10×60). Meanwhile, network darlings Erin and Ben Napier are back with Season 5 of their hit series Home Town (13×60), and Bargain Mansions (6×60) brings a new batch of neglected mansions back to life in new episodes of the popular series.
