My Lottery Dream Home
Premieres Friday, Dec. 13, at 9 p.m. ET/PT
The new season of My Lottery Dream Home finds HGTV star David Bromstad crisscrossing the country to help his instantly rich clients find fantasy homes with their newfound wealth. From an idyllic lake house in upstate New York to the quintessential 'American dream' home in Columbus, Ohio, David searches for amenity-filled properties that check off every box on a lottery winner's wish list.
Property Brothers: Forever Home
Premieres Wednesday, Dec. 18, at 9 p.m. ET/PT
In the season two premiere of Property Brothers: Forever Home, Jonathan and Drew step in to help a couple who both grew up in 'forever homes.' The young family loves the location of their single-story home-they can walk to both work and school-but the cramped kitchen and awkward layout doesn't work for their busy lives. In order to keep their forever home family tradition alive, Jonathan and Drew overhaul their entry, living room, dining room and kitchen. Throughout the new season, Jonathan and Drew unlock the true potential in lackluster family homes with top-to-bottom renovations that suit the families' needs and wishes.
Christina on the Coast
Premieres Thursday, Jan. 2, at 9 p.m. ET/PT
The second season of Christina on the Coast kicks off with a kitchen renovation for a local firefighter. He wants a 'firehouse functional' feel, while his wife prefers a clean aesthetic in all white. Compromise is key as Christina works to incorporate both styles to create a gorgeous open concept living space for their family. During the episode, she reveals to her best friend Cassie she's expecting her first child with husband Ant Anstead, and the newlyweds have a cupcake-filled gender reveal with Christina's children, Brayden and Taylor. The new season follows Christina as she works through a new chapter of life, designing a nursery and welcoming her son Hudson.
Premieres Monday, Jan. 20, at 9 p.m. ET/PT
In the premiere episode of Home Town, a Hollywood actor and his wife have fallen in love with small town life in Mississippi. Inspired by Ben and Erin's work beautifying Laurel, they commission the duo's help to make an investment in the community. With an all-in budget of $75,000, they find a historical home with good bones that needs a colorful makeover. Throughout the season, Ben and Erin use their masterful renovation skills to help all kinds of clients-from first-time homeowners to families of five-create a beautiful new home in Laurel. In addition, new episodes of the digital series Erin'spired will launch starting Jan. 20 on HGTV GO, HGTV.com, HGTV Instagram, HGTV Facebook and HGTV's YouTube channel and will give viewers insight into Erin's design process for each episode of the season.
