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, following the conclusion of season 2, fans have been asking whether the series will return for season 3 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 has been renewed for a third season, according to reports.
Some fans had been concerned that the show could have been axed by HGTV following a lawsuit brought against the group in April 2020.
A local couple filed a lawsuit for fraud following renovations done to their $1.3 million family home, as reported in the Chicago Tribune. However, the lawsuit has since been “resolved cooperatively”, according to House Beautiful.
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, with the show’s producers claiming that the series will return for a third season.
Windy City Rehab is such a great show.
