It would probably be pretty hard to find anyone who loves the picturesque city of Laurel, Mississippi as much as Ben and Erin Napier do. The duo has been renovating houses in the city on their HGTV show Home Town since 2016, transforming abandoned properties into stunning dream homes.
Home Town has been such a success on HGTV that the show has also had multiple spin-offs. In 2022, viewers can look forward to a brand new spin-off series, Home Town Kickstart. So, let’s take a look at what the show is all about, plus the Kickstart release date and locations…
What is Home Town Kickstart?
After years of renovating houses in their town, Ben and Erin are venturing out of Laurel in 2022 and they’re set to transform properties in other small towns across the US in Home Town Kickstart.
Ben and Erin are turning a show into a movement with their Kickstart series.
Six homes, six small businesses and six public spaces are all featured on the show and the Napiers aren’t alone in their reno work as other HGTV stars are set to appear on the show to lend a helping hand including Windy City Rehab‘s Alison Victoria.
