HGTV has ordered a new six-episode season of popular series Ugliest House in America, starring actress, comedian and self-proclaimed home renovation enthusiast, Retta. The series, which attracted more than 16 million viewers to its freshman run and premiered its second season on Sunday, July 24, will follow Retta on an expanded tour of five U.S. regions. Each episode will capture her entertaining walkthroughs and LOL commentary on unsightly properties nominated by homeowners who believe their place is one of the worst in the country. Ultimately, the “ugliest house” will get a stunning $150,000 renovation by HGTV star Alison Victoria. Season three is slated to premiere in early 2023.
“Millions of people tuned-in to watch Retta hilariously celebrate the ugly alongside the homeowners during the first season of Ugliest House in America, and we found some spectacularly ugly homes in paradise in season two,” said Betsy Ayala, senior vice president, programming & development, HGTV. “Just when we thought the houses couldn’t get worse, America did not disappoint. In the new season, we’ll get back on the road and give fans more of what they love most about this series – epically ugly and fantastically funny home tours with Retta.”
Fans can watch season two—Ugliest House in America: Ugly in Paradise—on Sundays at 8 and 8:30 p.m. ET/PT through Aug. 14 on HGTV and discovery+, as well as stream the full first season on discovery+.
