America has passionately followed HGTV’s Brady Bunch journey—from the network’s purchase of the world-famous North Hollywood house in 2018 to the monumental renovation that made the home a replica of the original TV set design.
Now, HGTV is set to unveil the astonishing transformation in the hugely anticipated series A Very Brady Renovation at 9 p.m. premiering Sept. 9.
The six Brady Bunch siblings, Barry Williams (Greg), Maureen McCormick (Marcia), Christopher Knight (Peter), Eve Plumb (Jan), Mike Lookinland (Bobby) and Susan Olsen (Cindy), teamed up with HGTV’s biggest renovation star experts Jonathan and Drew Scott “Property Brothers: Forever Home,” Mina Starsiak Hawk and Karen E. Laine “Good Bones,” siblings Leanne and Steve Ford “Restored by the Fords,” Jasmine Roth “Hidden Potential” and Lara Spencer “Flea Market Flip,” to execute the boldest home renovation the world has ever seen.
HGTV cameras captured more than 9,000 hours of the demo, renovation and meticulous replication of the Brady Bunch house. During production, there was so much incredible, fun activity that the series will kick off with an extended 90-minute blockbuster premiere episode.
“A Very Brady Renovation is the programming event of the year that Brady Bunch and HGTV superfans have been waiting for,” said Jane Latman, president, HGTV.
“HGTV and the Brady Bunch house together is as big as we anticipated, and it’s been fun to see and hear how everyone lights up with excitement whenever we mention anything related to Brady.”
After their initial tour of the house, which looked nothing like the original studio set, the Brady cast and HGTV stars waste no time starting the renovation and replication.
HGTV added 2,000 square feet to the original footprint of the house — all without compromising its instantly recognizable street view.
Jonathan and Drew pair up with Maureen and Susan to tackle the entryway, living room, iconic floating staircase and dining room, and the brothers also worked with Christopher on the exterior overhaul.
Throughout the rest of the season, Christopher and Eve recreate the orange and green kitchen and family room with Leanne and Steve; Mike and Susan join forces with Mina and Karen to overhaul the kids’ bedrooms and the Jack-and-Jill bathroom as well as the backyard; Barry and Jasmine take on Mike’s den; Barry, Jasmine and Lara make over Greg’s attic; and Eve and Lara recreate Alice’s bedroom.
HGTV also crowd-sourced vintage furniture and décor items true to the original TV series, some of which will be featured in A Very Brady Renovation. High-demand items for the Brady Bunch home reno included the living room couch and credenza, Greg’s attic radio, the front door handles and several of the home’s legendary tchotchkes.
“HGTV left no stone unturned, creating a perfect replica of the home down to the horse statue next to the staircase and the stuffed animal giraffe in the girls’ bedroom,” added Latman. “Viewers will be on the edge of their seats each week to see how we pulled it all off, and we can promise they’ll be transported back in time when they see the final result.”
