Home Town has enjoyed stable ratings so it’s no-brainers that producers will renew the programme as long as it attracts interest from viewers.

HGTV ordered 16 brand new episodes for season 5. A statement from May this year reads:

“HGTV’s hit series, Home Town, starring home renovation experts Ben and Erin Napier, has received a pick-up order for 16 new episodes. The current season of the series has attracted more than 30.4 million total viewers since its premiere on Monday, Jan. 20.”
