Reality TV, as we know it, has depended on the heavy-handed cultural pillars of the US – specifically Hollywood and the billboard – anything worthy of a poster, which were the biggest facades of pop culture. They had been the center of unscripted TV save for the odd documentary or know-how extended infomercials. However, the advent of reality TV for the ordinary everyman saw a boom as the most profitable genre of the reality TV (circle back in the 80s), and many shows after that then branched out to professional fields. When the real estate sector picked itself up even from the maligned housing bubble crash, the recovery led many Hollywood stars, politicians, and artists to have a go at it. Roll forward to 2018, and it is very much a staple for reality TV now. However, HGTV’s Holmes on Homes stood out from the brunt of these shows when it came out because it focused not on housing but on homes. The 2018 spinoff, Holmes: The Next Generation retains that vibe of improvisation and makeshift solutions for odd jobs regarding home renovation and maintenance while managing to spice things up a notch.
Holmes: The Next Generation Season 2 Cast: Who’s in it?
In the original show and many of its spinoffs like Holmes: Inspection, a large chunk of the original crew returned, including Damon Benett and Adam Belanger. However, Holmes: The Next Generation is light on the crew on the contrary, and limits itself to one family of contractors only. As the title alludes to, it is the current generation of the Holmes household in the lead now. At the front and center is, of course, Mike Holmes himself, the self-made investor, contractor, builder, and television host who produced the whole Holmes Franchise. Along with him comes Mike Holmes Jr., his son, who also has some extent of fame on the Canadian silver screen, the duo having been featured in Entertainment Tonight Canada, and several episodes of The Marilyn Denis Show. His daughter, Sherry Holmes, no less a reputed builder, and construction think-tank is also part of the crew (also featured on the main show and multiple other spinoffs such as Holmes Make It Right). The crew is completely set in stone, and we will certainly see them back in action if the prospect of a second season arises. It is unlikely there will be a regular addition to the crew, but this is difficult to confirm before HGTV makes further disclosures on the possible cast.
Holmes: The Next Generation Season 2 Plot: What is it about?
The show follows the crew of builders who stretch out a helping hand to more housing odd jobs rather than fully-fleshed projects – examples include lawn turf landscaping, decorations, and even long-standing maintenance issues. So in season 2, we might see six more episodes of home renovations of varying degrees.
Holmes: The Next Generation Season 2 Release Date: When will it premiere?
Grossing mostly positive critical reviews and a decent enough rating, Holmes: The Next Generation still fails to live up to the giant accolades of the main show. However, for a young show with only a debut season to boot, it has fared reasonably well, and we might see another season sometime before autumn 2019. That said, the show has not been renewed by HGTV yet, so the specific air date for the second season remains TBD.
Holmes: The Next Generation Season 2 Trailer
With no news of renewal in sight yet, the network has also still not released any promotional content, sneak-peeks, trailers, or even teasers for a season 2. So instead, here you can check out the original debut season’s trailer for a glimpse into the essence of the show.
