New York [For Immediate Release—February 15, 2016] HGTV has ordered nearly 100 additional episodes of six top-performing series in the fantasy lifestyle genre. Caribbean Life and Island Life were each renewed for a sixth season, while season eight was triggered for Hawaii Life. The network also ordered a third season of Island Hunters, a fifth season of Lakefront Bargain Hunt and new episodes of Beachfront Bargain Hunt. The popular destination programming focuses on real families on a budget as they search for affordable homes in gorgeous places around the world.
In Caribbean Life, families leave the mainland behind to live on island time. Each new episode follows potential buyers as they tour houses near white sandy beaches in hopes of finding an affordable tropical home. The new season of Island Life follows families as they tour beautiful stateside islands, such as Coronado Island, Calif.; South Padre Island, Texas; and Edisto Island, S.C. For those who want to live in the Aloha State, Hawaii Life features properties that suit any lifestyle and follows families as they turn their fantasy of living in Hawaii into reality.
HGTV also explores big-budget options in Island Hunters. Each episode features families as they search for the ultimate tropical getaway—their own private island. In Lakefront Bargain Hunt, home seekers set out to find affordable lakeside living, while others search for a sanctuary in the sand without breaking the bank in Beachfront Bargain Hunt.
