HGTV’s Windy City Rehab second season launched on Sept 15th, 2020 on a high note, and we expect that HGTV will approve a Windy City Rehab season 3. The series features home renovation expert Alison Victoria as she remodels historic fixer-uppers in Chicago, IL.
Season two premiere episode of the series delivered an 81 percent increase in ratings among P25-54, and a 70 percent increase among W25-54. With more than five million viewers overall, Windy City Rehab was the #1 cable program among upscale P25-54 on Tuesday night. Jane Latman, president, HGTV stated that “Alison is laying it all on the line in this season of Windy City Rehab and millions of viewers showed up to follow her compelling story. Everyone knows Alison is a talented designer and renovator, but this season fans will see her strength and resilience as she manages renovation projects through some serious business challenges.”
Season 3 status update
HGTV has not yet announced a season 3 but we believe based on the performance ratings and momentum picked up by the series that it will be renewed for a season 3.
Some Trouble in Paradise?
The Chicago Sun Times reported a lawsuit filed against Alison Victoria. The Morrissey family closed on a 4,000-square-foot luxury residence, and reported experiencing an upper-floor shower leak with gallons of water pouring into the kitchen ceiling below, according to a lawsuit filed against Victoria and her co-host Donovan Eckhardt.
