The lineup also includes new reboots and spinoffs, like the epic makeover of fan-favorite series Curb Appeal. HGTV will also premiere more than 100 fresh episodes of fan-favorite series before Jan. 3. Latman said, "We've always known that there are infinite ways to tell the story of home and in the next few months we will premiere more than a dozen new shows that push the boundaries of the home genre, while delivering on heart, humor and inspiration."
