HGTV's fall lineup paints fuzzy future for Flip or Flop Fort Worth

This time last year, it looked like Texas would be plenty represented on HGTV — but with the end of Fixer Upper last season, the number of Texas-based shows on the network dropped to exactly none.

Last season, we saw (in addition to Fixer Upper) the debut of Flip or Flop Fort Worth. Also, the sister network DIY Network offered Texas Flip N’ Move.

But recent press releases from parent company Discovery Inc. indicate that the Fort Worth renovation show helmed by military veterans Andy and Ashley Williams is not on the lineup.

What is returning? Love It Or List It, Flipping Virgins, Desert Flippers, Property Brothers, Flip or Flop Atlanta, My Lottery Dream Home, Property Brothers: Buying and Selling, Restored by the Fords, Flip or Flop Nashville, and Home Town.

“New seasons of HGTV’s immensely popular fantasy destination series return throughout 2018, including Beachfront Bargain Hunt, Lakefront Bargain Hunt, Beach Hunters, Bahamas Life, Caribbean Life, Island Life, Mountain Life, Mexico Life, and Hawaii Life,” the press release says.

New shows include Rustic Rehab, My Windfall Dream Home, House Hunters: Home for the Holidays, Best House on the Block, Big City Charm, Mom and Me, Almost Home, Windy City Rehab, and Montana Home.

It’s curious, because earlier this summer, the show’s production company, RTR Media, emailed us information about a casting call for a show that would be hosted by the Williams duo. Emails to the company about the status of the new show were not returned.

Likewise, HGTV has not returned CultureMap's emails inquiring specifically about the future of Flip or Flop Fort Worth. Stay tuned.
