When is Home Town Takeover Season 2 Releasing? It’s Location
“Home Town Takeover” recently announced that Season 2 would air on Sunday, 30th April 2023. While Season 1 involved the restoration of Wetumpka, Alabama, this season, the show’s location is in Fort Morgan, Colorado.
The location was fixed last year, and the show’s hosts, Erin and Ben Napier, announced their plans to refurbish the small town of Fort Morgan in Colorado. So, the viewers had been eagerly waiting for updates ever since.
Likewise, the hosts had also shared a little sneak peek and behind-the-scenes in October last year so that the audience may know what to expect in Season 2. So, now as the official date for its premiere is out, don’t miss out on the chance to witness the big transformation of the small town.
Casts of Home Town Takeover Season 2: Who Are They?
Season 2 of “Home Tale Takeover ” will be exciting as it involves not only Ben and Erin but 10 more fun hosts from HGTV and Food Network. So, all these talented stars will be uniting to make Fort Morgan, Colorado, a better place for its residents as well as visitors.
As renovating a whole town is a huge and overwhelming responsibility to take, Erin and Ben Napier, who have 2 little girls, had no plans to return to Season 2. The mother said the takeover life was incompatible with family life as they had to leave their little girls for a long time.
So, Erin mentioned that though Season 1 of Home Town Takeover was an excellent adventure for them, they may only want to do it again once their girls are big enough. So, to help the Napiers, HGTV planned to bring some other HGTV friends with project Fort Morgan.
After that, Erin stated, “Struggling small towns can do the hard work to become healthy again. It’s difficult, but nothing great is ever easy,” says Erin. “And while it is scary to take on a project of this scale, it helps so much to have a team to help carry the load.”
So who are the 10 big helpers of Ben and Erin Napier on Home Town Take Over? Let’s have a look.
Dave Marrs and Jenny Marrs from “Fixer to Fabulous”
So, as announced last year, Dave and Jeny Marrs are joinings Ben and Erin Napier on the show as co-hosts. While other stars will appear as guests, Dave and Jenny will assist the couple throughout the Season.
According to Dave, he grew up in a small town in Colorado, and being a part of “Home Town Takeover” Season 2 is very meaningful to them. Likewise, he added, “We’re so honored to be able to help the families who give back to their neighbors and the small business owners who need a boost.”
So, as many of you may already know, Dave Marrs and Jenny Marrs are the husband-wife duos who refurbish antique houses in their hometown Bentonville, Arkansas, on “Fixer to Fabulous.” Jenny is the designer, while Dave is a craftsman, builder, and contractor. They have 6 kids.
