Despite its massive success, fans of the hit home renovation series Windy City Rehab are wondering if the series has been cancelled by HGTV.
From lawsuits to pandemics, the Chicago-based reality television show has had its fair number of obstacles in recent months.
Now, five months after season 1 concluded, fans have been asking whether the series will return for season 2 or whether it has been cancelled by HGTV.

Has Windy City Rehab been cancelled?
- No, Windy City Rehab has not been cancelled by HGTV and in fact returns for a second season this month.
Some fans had been concerned that the show could have been axed by HGTV following a lawsuit brought against the group in April. A local couple filed a lawsuit for fraud following renovations done to their $1.3 million family home, as reported in the Chicago Tribune.
Concerns were raised further when the relationship between the host of the show Alison Victoria and contractor Donovan Eckhardt broke down, leading to both legal and financial issues. Then we had the pandemic, which halted production for 14 days back in March after her producer fell ill with a suspected case of the virus.
However, fans of the show will be glad to hear that the series has not been cancelled by HGTV and is, in fact, returning in just a few weeks.

Windy City Rehab season 2: Release date…
- Season 2 of Windy City Rehab will premiere on Tuesday, September 15, 2020.
The news that Windy City Rehab would be returning to our screens sooner-than-expected broke on August 18.
There were concerns that the second season could be pushed back because of the pandemic, but thankfully it seems that production had relatively smooth sailing following the scare in early March.
The series is expected to return for 11 episodes and if it can pull similar viewers to season 2, we can definitely expect a lot more Windy City Rehab in the future.
