So much for Flip or Flop falling victim to the cancelation axe.
According to a new report, HGTV has actually decided to go in the opposite direction when it comes to this popular home renovation show.
It's about to take the country by storm!
Over the past several weeks, it's been assumed that Flip or Flop would come to an end at the completion of its current season, considering hosts Tarek El Moussa and Christina El Moussa are in the middle of divorce proceedings.
Ugly divorce proceedings at that, with some pretty severe allegations being leveled back and forth.
So clearly the show has a short shelf life, right?
In its latest issue, Us Weekly writes that the series will soon criss-cross the country, airing versions beyond the current setting of Southern California.
At some point in the near future, look for Flip or Flop spinoffs to be based in the following cities/states:
- Las Vegas
Neither Tarek nor Christina will be involved in these editions of the program.
Allison Page - general manager, U.S. programming and development for HGTV, Food Network and Travel Channel - explains this decision as follows to the tabloid:
"Because every market is unique, there was an opportunity to highlight what works in various regions by featuring successful people in different locations who had mastered the art of flipping in their town."
Page also confirms that the first spinoff will be based in Sin City.
It will be hosted by people named Bristol and Aubrey Marunde, the latter of whom says to Us Weekly:
"I bring in a lot of chandeliers and lighting and hardware and things that take the properties over the top."
The couple says it has been in the house-flipping business for over a decade.
Since news of the El Moussas' split broke last December, fans have been wondering about the future of the show.
Tarek and Christina separated last May, following a major argument that concluded with Tarek storming out of the couple's home... with a gun.
The police were called to the scene and no charges were filed.
According to Page, however, this expansion has been in the works long before the El Moussa broke up.
"We've been building this franchise for over a year and a half," she says. "And we're thrilled to bring new chapters, new stories and new talent to complement a series that's been a big success."
Look for Flip or Flop Las Vegas to debut on HGTV April 6 at 9 p.m. ET.
From there, Flip or Flop Atlanta is scheduled to premiere this summer... while Flip or Flop Nashville and Flip or Flop Texas follow in February 2018.
No date has been set for Flip or Flop Chicago.
Will you give these spinoffs a shot?
Or can you not even imagine watching Flip or Flop unless Tarek and Christina are the ones in charge?
