New HGTV Series Flip Or Flop Nashville Sets 2018 Premiere Date
by TJ Anderson
That new show, unsurprisingly called Flip or Flop Nashville, seems to finally have a premiere date: According to HGTV.com, it’s due to debut on the home-focused channel on January 18, 2018 at 8 p.m. Central.
What to expect from the new Nashville home-renovation series:
"Page Turner and DeRon Jenkins are busy house flippers in Nashville and Atlanta — and, they also happen to be exes. For this driven former couple, no job is too big, too small or too dirty. With a decade of partnership, this duo knows the real estate game inside and out, and they're willing to fight the market — and maybe each other — to get top dollar and return on their investment."
The team of two is headed to North Nashville for the kickoff episode of Flip or Flop Nashville, to overhaul a “cute cottage” in hopes of grabbing a big return. (Educated guess based on years of watching these shows: They’re gonna grab a big return.)
Big changes at HGTV
The new Flip or Flop series rolls out during a time of big change for HGTV — rumors are that the soon-starting season 7 will be the last one from the original Flip or Flop couple, and the network’s biggest stars, Chip and Joanna Gaines of Fixer Upper, are wrapping up their show too.
It seems fitting, too, that the home network (and its sister channel DIY Network) would be spending a season of change putting lots of roots down in Nashville, a city that’s still in the middle of its own big season of change.
If you haven’t caught all of the already-airing Nashville-based home-renovation shows, here’s a very quick primer:
Nashville home renovation TV shows
Troy Dean Shafer finds historic homes in and around Nashville, and restores them, with an eye on maintaining their original charm. Season 2 aired this year; no word yet on 3.
Twins Alana and Lex LeBlanc help Nashville homebuyers find a worthy fixer-upper in their favored neighborhood, and turn it into their dream home. Season two aired this year. I haven’t seen news yet on whether season 3 is in the works.
Professional/romantic partners Kortney and Dave Wilson seek out homes in Nashville that have seen better days, and rehab them back to their former glory. Season 2 aired in 2016/2017, but haven’t seen news of season 3 for the Wilsons yet either.
HGTV’s OG twins/arguably their biggest stars whose shows aren't ending, Jonathan and Drew Scott, just spent a bunch of time in Nashville working on the 11th season of their flagship show, and seventh season of Buying + Selling. A bunch of those B&S episodes aired this year, and the new Property Brothers season just premiered in October. Who knows if the brothers’ll be back to Music City — looks like they liked it here, but they’ve apparently been busy with weddings and stuff. I'd put good money on the fact that they'll be back on the airwaves, though, after these seasons, for many more to come.
