Plot Synopsis

Ty Pennington heads up a team of designers in a race against the clock to help deserving families in need of a newly rebuilt and decorated homes. Each 60-minute episode features a project that would ordinarily take at least four months to achieve, involving a team of designers, contractors and several hundred volunteer workers who all have just seven days to totally rebuild and decorate an entire house -- every single room, plus the exterior and landscaping. The result is revealed to the hopeful family when Ty yells "Move that bus!" with the crew and family. For its 10th season, beginning on Monday, November 26, 2012, this series returned with two-hour holiday specials on four consecutive Mondays at 9pm ET/PT.
On Wednesday, June 19, 2019 HGTV announced that Jesse Tyler Ferguson has signed on as host 10 new episodes of EXTREME MAKEOVER: HOME EDITION and will take over the bullhorn to mobilize community volunteers and inspire the build/design teams for each mind-blowing renovation. "I was so inspired by the original series and now I can't wait to help families as the new host," said Jesse. Each episode of the series spotlights local heroes and those who give back to their communities despite personal challenges. The home overhauls will include interior, exterior and landscaping -- all completed within seven days while the family is sent away for the week. The series will showcase builders, designers and landscapers who race against the clock to completely renovate each home before the family returns from their time away. Jane Latman, president, HGTV said "We'll make some variations to creative aspects of the show, but it will always deliver the great storytelling that made it one of the most iconic and successful properties in television. Jesse's a funny guy, with a warm, caring nature who will help us find the humor and joy in every situation, so that will make this a unique viewing experience for everyone." Series to premiere in 2020.
