HGTV has renewed its Ugliest House in America series with actress and comedian Retta. Season 3 is set to premiere in early 2023.
The new series will follow Retta on a tour of five US regions visiting unsightly properties nominated by homeowners who believe their home is one of the worst in the country. Voted the ugliest, the home will benefit from a $150,000 renovation led by HGTV interior design star Alison Victoria.
“Millions of people tuned in to see Retta reveling with the homeowners in the first season of Ugliest House in America and celebrating the ugly, and we found some spectacularly ugly homes in paradise in season two,” said Betsy Ayala, Senior Vice President, Programming and Development at HGTV. “Just when we thought the houses couldn’t get any worse, America didn’t disappoint. In the new season we will be touring again and giving fans more of what they love most about this show – extra ugly and hilariously fun home tours with Retta.”
The quick renewal is a vote of confidence in Retta and the series, which only started its second season on July 24. Retta, a veteran standup comic, became a breakthrough star in the 2009-2015 NBC comedy series Parks and Recreation opposite Amy Poehler.
Season 2 of the mercy mission for homes in need is titled Ugliest House in America: Ugly in Paradise. Viewers can find the series on Sundays at 8 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. through August 14 on linear HGTV and streamer Discovery+. Season 1 is also available in full on Discovery+.
