Actress Paige Davis arrives for the 51st Drama Desk Awards Show in New York, May 21, 2006. Davis hosted the TLC show “Trading Spaces” between 2001 and 2004 and again in 2008. TLC announced the show will be returning in 2018, but does not say who the host of the reboot.
NEW YORK – “Trading Spaces,” the addictive home design show, which ran in the early 2000, is returning to TLC, the network announced Tuesday.
Nancy Daniels, TLC’s president and general manager, took a deep breath before making the announcement at the Discovery Communications Upfront presentation.
“This is a big one,” she told the room of reporters and advertisers before sharing the news.
“I am pleased to announce that the TLC’s most successful and most iconic series… ‘Trading Spaces’ to come back.”
Her words were greeted with a mild round of applause.
Daniels said the show would return in 2018.
“Trading Spaces” went off the air in 2008. The concept of the series is fairly simple: Neighbors would swap houses and work with great personality professionals for the renovation of a room in their neighbors home. Sometimes it went well and the other time the neighbors hated the renovation. It was a top show for the network during a large part of the run.
Daniels does not directly give you more information about the reboot, but renewed classical shows more and more a theme of the Discovery Communications as of late. On Monday, news broke that “Cash Cab” is set to return to Discovery, and “Mythbusters” is also back to the network this year.
