Three “fantasy lifestyle series” airing on cable have picked up renewals. All three of the shows — “Beach Hunters,” “Lakefront Bargain Hunt” and “Lakefront Bargain Hunt Renovation” — will return to HGTV in 2018.
The channel’s announcement notes that the total order is for more than 50 new episodes, among the three series.
“‘Beach Hunters’ showcases buyers who travel to exquisite seaside destinations to find their dream homes on the sand. In ‘Lakefront Bargain Hunt,’ buyers seek budget-friendly waterfront homes in lakeside towns, while ‘Lakefront Bargain Hunt Renovation’ features families who purchase a fixer upper by the lake and transform it into their perfect getaway,” the announcement adds.
Said John Feld, senior vice president, original programming and production, for HGTV, DIY Network and Great American Country: “HGTV’s fantasy lifestyle programming works so well because it attracts viewers who aspire to one day own an idyllic vacation home, and that’s pretty much all of us.”
