For Immediate Release
TORONTO, December 14, 2021 – Following a record-setting freshman season and a Realscreen Award nomination for Best Lifestyle – Home Program, HGTV Canada’s Rock Solid Builds (10×60) returns for a second season of impressive builds and Newfoundland charm on Thursday, January 27 at 10 p.m. ET/PT. The Corus Studios Original series that became the #1 new Canadian show on Specialty in Spring 2021*, follows Randy Spracklin and his team as they spend another year battling Newfoundland’s rugged terrain and notorious harsh weather to create stunning homes infused with East Coast style. Ahead of the new season, fans can enjoy a complete Season 1 marathon as part of their holiday celebrations on Thursday, December 23 from 10 a.m. – 8 p.m. ET/PT.
The new season kicks off with an ambitious rebuild in Newfoundland’s capital, St. John’s. The project has a promising start, until the demo uncovers a dangerous structural issue that brings the job to a standstill. Meanwhile, Randy and his father work side-by-side to save a historic root cellar in Carbonear. And while they don’t see eye-to-eye on the process, they still find plenty of reasons to celebrate. With major projects and multiple new hires this year, it is set to be a busy building season for the Spracklin family business.
Season 2 of Rock Solid Builds welcomes The Canadian Propane Association as a sponsor for the series, as well as ROCKWOOL® who serves as the Official Insulation Supplier. Make-A-Wish Canada teams up with the cast this season to grant a very special wish to a local child in an upcoming episode.
HGTV Canada sees a slew of premieres this January including new series Married to Real Estate (8×60) on Monday, January 17 at 10 p.m. ET/PT, and a new season of My Lottery Dream Home (5×30) on Tuesday, January 18 at 9 p.m. ET/PT. New episodes of Property Brothers: Forever Home (6×60) continue Monday, January 3 at 9 p.m. ET/PT, along with Fixer to Fabulous (10×60) on Wednesday, January 5 at 9 p.m. ET/PT. Before the year is up, master flipper Tarek El Moussa (Flip or Flop) and Selling Sunset star Heather Rae Young celebrate their recent marriage in Tarek & Heather: The Big I Do on Thursday, December 30 at 10 p.m. ET/PT, and Season 6 of Home Town (5×60) premieres on Sunday, December 26 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
