HGTV RENEWS 'HOUSES WITH HISTORY' FOR A SECOND SEASON
New York [April 21, 2022] HGTV has ordered eight new one-hour episodes of Houses with History starring history buff Mike Lemieux, carpenter Rich Soares and designer Jen Macdonald. During the series, which attracted nearly 14 million viewers in its freshman season, the history-obsessed trio explore the fascinating backstories of America's oldest homes near Plymouth, Massachusetts, and help save these remarkable centuries-old properties with stunning restorations. In each episode, they also share the homes' unique origins and past renovation stories. The new season is slated to premiere in early 2023.
"Houses with History is one of the series where we flipped the idea of what makes a good renovation story on its head and led with the backstory of the house, rather than the homeowner," said Loren Ruch, group senior vice president, programming & development, HGTV. "A successful first season and a renewal for a second is because Mike, Rich and Jen are fantastic, humorous storytellers, and when it comes to our nation's oldest homes, the unexpected twists that are revealed during each renovation are always fascinating."
