ABC will, however, air four special episodes after the season nine finale.

The show premiered in 2003, and according to the Hollywood Reporter, averaged 15.8 million viewers per episode. The team, consisting of Pennington and designer Michael Moloney, visited and rebuilt homes in need in all 50 states. It often featured high profile guests, including Kim Kardashian and Michelle Obama.
