Listening to an episode of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition end with an excited shout from Ty Pennington to “Move! That! Bus!" was truly the highlight of ABC’s lineup for almost a decade. Now, six years after the last episode aired, fans of the O.G. home makeover show are rejoicing because there’s officially a reboot in the works—this time on HGTV with Modern Family's Jesse Tyler Ferguson as its host and a new design team.
Here’s everything you need to know about the Extreme Makeover: Home Edition reboot.

Shortly after, the show's original host, Ty Pennington, shared his excitement of Jesse being named his replacement for the reboot. “I’m excited for those guys bringing the show back,” the 54-year-old told TMZ. “It’s one of the best shows ever. It’s an awesome thing, so congrats!"

How can I apply to be on the Extreme Makeover: Home Edition reboot?
Submit your family through the appropriate application. Expect to provide every family member’s social media pages, explain what makes your family’s situation unique, and name the top five repairs that need immediate attention. The application also has a section where you can upload two optional videos: one introducing your family to producers, and one giving a tour of your home.
You can also nominate a deserving family through a separate application, which asks how they've inspired you, how they’ve impacted their community, and how your life would be different without this family’s presence.
