TORONTO, December 16, 2019 – Stay out of the cold and cozy up with HGTV Canada this winter as the network welcomes an exciting roster of fresh and familiar faces to prime time. HGTV Canada favourites Kortney and Dave Wilson kick off the New Year with the new series Making it Home with Kortney & Dave premiering January 22 at 10 p.m. ET/PT. In this series, the duo help homeowners achieve their own renovation goals by teaching them new skills, introducing bold designs, and completing big transformations. Come this February, five new powerhouse real estate agents join the network in the new Corus Studios original series Hot Market premiering February 3 at 11 p.m. ET/PT. Hot Market showcases Ontario’s most lavish and remarkable properties to buy and sell. Then, HGTV Canada designer Samantha Pynn showcases her colourful, playful, and budget friendly designs alongside master builder Sebastian Clovis in the new season of $ave My Reno premiering February 18 at 9 and 9:30 p.m. ET/PT.

Kicking off the schedule, Masters of Flip stars Kortney and Dave Wilson turn the key on their next big project with bigger and bolder renovations – this time for homeowners. In the new series Making It Home with Kortney & Dave, the flipping duo flex their real estate expertise and show homeowners how changing up a neighbourhood, buying a fixer-upper, and trusting them with the budget and renovation can bring them the house of their dreams. Property fantasies continue when five fresh personalities make their television debut in the new Corus Studios original series Hot Market. The series introduces Odeen, Rizwan, Rana, David, and Stephanie – an elite talent roster of real estate agents as they buy and sell multi-million dollar properties in one of the country’s hottest real estate markets. From McMansions in the suburbs, sprawling cottage estates, and multi-million dollar downtown penthouses, the new series offers an insider look at a variety of luxurious dream properties. Then, HGTV Canada designer Samantha Pynn brings her luxe-on-a-budget style and infectious positivity to the third season of $ave My Reno. Together with builder Sebastian Clovis, the duo tackle new projects for the series’ most exciting renovations yet.
Teamwork continues with the return of the highly awaited, transformative, and aspirational home show Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. Each week, Canadians will witness the massive, life changing home renovations led by the series new host, Jesse Tyler Ferguson (Modern Family). Working alongside Jesse, neighbours, local building experts, special guests, and the series’ designers – Breegan Jane, Carrie Locklyn and Darren Keefe – create customized homes that perfectly accommodate the needs of each inspiring family. Special guest appearances include Anthony Anderson, Derek Hough, Ty Pennington, LeAnn Rimes, OWN’s Laila Ali, Food Network Canada’s Tyler Florence, and HGTV Canada stars David Bromstad, Tamara Day, Tarek El Moussa, and Jasmine Roth.The new episodes will be produced by Endemol Shine North America with Sharon Levy, DJ Nurre, Michael Heyerman, Brady Connell and Jesse Tyler Ferguson serving as executive producers. The company also produced the original version of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition for ABC.
Viewers can take a break from the cold and travel to the waterfront with back-to-back escape programming beginning January 3, including Mexico Life, Beachfront Bargain Hunt, and Off the Grid On the Beach.
