It’s bright. It’s funny. It’s always entertaining. It’s the show that started the television renovation revolution and got Australians hooked on room makeovers and reveals and now Changing Rooms will return next year on Ten with an all-new look.
Set to launch on Ten in early 2019, the new Changing Rooms will bring a fresh and exciting approach to the much-loved format, which ran for 17 seasons in the UK and led to local versions in the US, New Zealand and Australia.
The premise of Changing Rooms is simple – and the results are great television. Couples swap houses with their family, friends or neighbours. Each pair decorate several key rooms in each other’s homes, guided by leading designers, and the meet up again for a final reveal.
Network Ten Chief Content Officer, Beverley McGarvey, said the new Changing Rooms will reimagine and reinvent the show’s core concept.
“Our new show will capture the essence and appeal of the original format and re-energise it, with strong storylines and more kitchen and bathroom reveals, which are proven favourites with Australian viewers” she said.
“Created by the people behind such proven hits as MasterChef Australia and Australian Survivor, the new Changing Rooms will be fun, bright, energetic and great family viewing.
“Changing Rooms proved that renovation could be more than informative: it could also be full of fun, big characters and tension. We cannot wait to bring our exciting new version to viewers,” Ms McGarvey said.
Endemol Shine Australia CEO, Mark Fennessy said: “It’s the series that changed the nation’s living rooms and brought in a new era of DIY. Changing Rooms – it’s great to have you back!”
The host of the new Changing Rooms will be announced soon.
