Netflix Renews Realtor Soap ‘Selling Sunset’ for Two More Seasons as Christine Quinn Returns

Netflix has gone all in on the Southern California real estate market.

The streamer renewed the Emmy-nominated docusoap “Selling Sunset” for two more seasons, with production on seasons six and seven set to begin later this summer. 

Set in the world of LA’s high-end real estate, the series follows a team of successful female realtors who all work under the same roof at The Oppenheim Group, which claims to be the No. 1 agency in the Hollywood Hills and the Sunset Strip. The agents work hard and play harder, as they attempt to co-exist in the competitive LA market without backstabbing each other — too much.

The show elevated the profiles of several actor/realtors, including Christine Quinn, Jason Oppenheim, Mary Fitzgerald, her French-born husband Romain Bonnett, Heather Rae El Moussa (who is married to “Flip or Flop” star Tarek El Moussa) and Chrishell Stause, according to an online survey.

Indeed, Tarek and Heather just signed to appear in their own HGTV reality show, “The Flipping El Moussas,” which is sure to complicate matters, while Quinn launched an online realtor service with her husband based on cryptocurrency. Quinn, who masterfully played co-workers against each other for personal gain, was a no-show at the end of season 5 following allegations that she attempted to bribe the client of a follow agent (Emma Hernan) to list with her.

Netflix is set to bow a “Selling Sunset” spin-off show called “Selling the OC,” which features a separate cast of female and male realtors fighting each other under The Oppenheim Group shingle in Orange County. The eight-episode series launches Aug. 24.

Both series are created by Done and Done Productions and Lionsgate, with executive producers Adam DiVello, Sundee Manusakis, Kristofer Lindquist, Skyler Wakil and Jason Oppenheim, among others.

Interestingly, Netflix will also premiere “Buying Beverly Hills,” a real estate soap that follows the agents and clients within Mauricio Umansky’s The Agency in Beverly Hills, Calif., over eight episodes. Mauricio, his daughters, Farrah Brittany and Alexia Umansky, and the talented group of agents highlight the high stakes world of luxury real estate in Los Angeles. The series debuts Aug. 24.

Separately, Netflix revealed the July 8 premiere of “How to Build a Sex Room,” an eight-episode show based around interior designer Melanie Rose who caters to couples looking for more spice in the bedroom.

The streamer also announced the  July 27 debut of “Dream Home Makeover” season three, “Instant Dream Home,” which premieres Aug. 10, and “Designing Miami,” which premieres on Sept. 21.

Finally, “Buy My House” is set to premiere this fall featuring homeowners from across America selling their properties, on the spot, to one of four real-estate tycoons, including Redfin CEO Glenn Kelman, Corcoran Group CEO Pamela Liebman, NFL Linebacker Brandon Copeland, and investment property magnate Danisha Wrighster.

The unique homes are up for grabs as the owners share heartfelt backstories and engage in heart pounding negotiations with the tycoons. 

Netflix Ups Home Improvement Programming

Home improvement TV programming has gone over-the-top. On the heels of HGTV bowing all of its shows on subscription streaming video service Discovery+, and Roku acquiring “This Old House” episodes, Netflix has upped its presence beyond personal organizing wiz Marie Kondo, to include expand separate home improvement shows from last year.

The SVOD pioneer March 19 announced new seasons of “Get Organized With The Home Edit” and “Dream Home Makeover,” plus the new series “Sparking Joy With Marie Kondo,” a follow-up series from the star of “Tidying Up With Marie Kondo.”

Netflix is also launching “Marriage or Mortgage,” in which couples decide between planning a wedding or buying and designing their dream home.

“Get Organized With The Home Edit” season two finds Clea Shearer and Joanna Teplin, the master organizers and best-selling authors behind the innovative home organization company The Home Edit, again conquering clutter with their unique brand of interior styling, practicality and humor, dramatically transforming the lives of their clients. This season, viewers will take a closer look into Clea and Joanna’s business — featuring even bigger organization projects, along with several celebrities surprising deserving friends and family members with makeovers.

The third season of “Dream Home Makeover” follows the lives of Syd and Shea McGee as they run their home design business and raise their two daughters (and one baby on the way). Episodes feature design projects that range from one-room designs to full home builds and renovations, effortlessly applying the same set of principles to every project, creating interiors that are unfussy, accessible, and breathtakingly simple at any level of the budget ladder.

New series “Sparking Joy With Marie Kondo,” again features the organization icon and best-selling author’s signature approach to tidying up a step further. Kondo shows how the fundamentals of her method can affect businesses, relationships and communities. The impacts of tidying are surprising, emotional and transformative in the lives of the people she meets. Throughout the process, viewers will also step into Kondo’s own home, meet her family, and get a glimpse into how she sparks joy in her daily life.

HGTV Flips Script on Home Improvement TV Show

HGTV helped create the booming DIY reality TV market, turning unknown entrepreneur couples, brothers, single moms and mother/daughter teams renovating homes and properties into budding celebrities.

From “Flip or Flop” and “Property Brothers” to “Fixer Upper,” Discovery-owned HGTV caught lightening tapping into consumer fascination with real estate, house flipping and home improvement.

Now, the network will showcase two celebrities, actress Gabrielle Union and husband NBA star Dwyane Wade, renovating a home for charity in “All-Star Flip.”

Union and Wade showcase their “love” of home renovation as they buy, overhaul and flip a fixer-upper in an up-and-coming Miami neighborhood.

The couple join forces with their construction team to gut an outdated ranch house, adding square footage and value to the property with a second-story master suite. They transform the home into a sleek, modern showplace.

Union, who stars in pending drama, Breaking In, says home renovation might be more her passion than Wade’s.

“It took a while, but I finally convinced Dwyane that we should try flipping a house,” said Union, who admits to being real-estate obsessed.

“And we’re doing it to raise money for charity,” said Wade. “So how could I say no?”

The half-hour special premieres April 12, at 9:30 p.m. ET/PT on HGTV.
