“TLC is back into home and property with Nate and Jeremiah by Design, our new show helping distressed honeymooners turn disasters into dream homes,” TLC President and General Manager Nancy Daniels announced. “We are thrilled to expand in this space, and what better way to do that than to bring back Trading Spaces, the series that put property on the map!”
So far, no release date for the upcoming revival has been revealed, only teasing that we should expect new episodes some time in 2018.
The original run of the series ran from 2000 to 2008; Paige Davis hosted the series, while Ty Pennington and Carter Oosterhouse made frequent appearances — at this time, it’s unclear whether any of the show’s former personalities will be back for the revival.
For those unfamiliar with the show, two neighbors would redecorate a room in each other’s home, in only two days with a budget of only $1,000. Teams have no control over what their neighbors decide to do to their room — but they are allowed to give input to their neighbors before leaving their house for 48 hours (they’re unable to reenter until the remodel is complete).

So far, there has been a positive fan reaction to the news.
“I’m beyond excited for ‘Trading Spaces’ to return to TV next year,” one fan wrote. Many others rallied behind the former host — hoping she’ll be tapped for the reboot. One such fan wrote, “If ‘Trading Spaces’ is coming back Paige HAS to come back. It’s a must.”
