HGTV has given a series greenlight to Farmhouse Fixer, featuring New Kids on the Block’s Jonathan Knight. It’s set to premiere Wednesday, March 3 at 9 pm ET/PT on HGTV.
The six-episode series will feature Knight, who has renovated more than 200 houses, as he carefully preserves the original craftsmanship and historic charm of classic homes while he also modernizes layouts, updates interiors and gives his clients endless reasons to cheer.
“Restoring the American farmhouse is not just a hobby for me—it’s my passion, my obsession and I’ve been doing it for more than 25 years,” said Knight. “It’s so easy to just go knock down an old house. It’s way harder to renovate them so that families can enjoy them for years to come. That’s the reason this work is so worth it.”
To kick off the season, Knight will give new life to a 1700s New Hampshire farmhouse with help from his designer and friend, Kristina Crestin. To stabilize the property, Jonathan must remove a sinking addition on the home but, on the plus side, he will convert a backyard tool shed into a stunning potting bench and chicken coop. In future episodes, he’ll complete custom renovations for additional old homes, including creating an enviable chef’s kitchen and a built-in seating area for a large dining room. During the season, outdoor projects will include everything from a goat enclosure to raised garden beds.
“I love a good old farmhouse,” said Knight. “To me, being on a farm is a way of life. It’s the real deal. Old farmhouses are disappearing off the landscape, but these are American treasures that should be saved.”
