LOVE IT OR LIST IT VANCOUVER RENEWED FOR A SECOND SEASON

Big Coat Productions and W Network are thrilled to announce that Love It or List It Vancouver has been renewed for a second season. The series, hosted by interior designer Jillian Harris and realtor Todd Talbot, showcases families in B.C.’s largest metropolitan city who are struggling with homes that no longer suit their needs. Production on Season 2 of the west coast spin-off of Love It or List It is scheduled to begin late summer. New episodes of the first season of Love It or List It Vancouver premiere Monday, September 2 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on W Network.

“With W Network ordering a second season, another 26 episodes, we are truly thrilled to continue to share fresh stories, fantastic locations and a different perspective with Canadian audiences. We are very much looking forward to joining forces with our partners at W Network to create a great second season and pave the way for seasons to come,” says Executive Producer, Maria Armstrong.

“As the first franchise of its kind, the success of Love It or List It Vancouver highlights the strength of the series and the authentic connection Canadian viewers experience with theshow’s innovative and energetic format. The Vancouver edition is growing to become as successful as the Toronto franchise and we cannot wait to move into season two,” says Co-Executive Producer Catherine Fogarty.

“The Love It or List It franchise continues to be a fan favourite for W Network viewers, and we’re excited to work with Big Coat on this new season as Jillian and Todd get even more creative in their attempts to sway homeowners on the West Coast to love it or list it,” said Vibika Bianchi, Vice President, Original Programming, Lifestyle, Reality, Factual Entertainment, Corus Entertainment.

Every episode takes viewers on an emotional rollercoaster as Jillian and Todd battle it out for the homeowners’ allegiance. It’s up to designer Jillian to put a stop to the wandering eyes of homeowners, armed with their list of “must-haves to love it” and a design she hopes will persuade them to stay. Meanwhile, realtor Todd is determined to get homeowners to relocate by taking their list of “must-haves to list it” and finding them new digs. With renovation there are always setbacks and sometimes it means the homeowners must lose one of their “must- haves” on their list to stay. On the realtor’s end, finding everything the homeowners want in their dream home can be more difficult than originally anticipated. The stakes are high as the homeowners make their final decision—will they love it enough to stay or is it time to list?

Love It or List It Vancouver is produced by Big Coat Productions in association with W Network.
