HGTV fans have positively fallen in love with Renovation Island, the hit docu-series that follows renovation pros Bryan and Sarah Baeumler (and family) on their epic adventure to restore and revive an entire beachside resort on the Bahamian island of South Andros.

The arc series that made its debut on HGTV in June 2020 has shaped up as a surprise hit of the season, taking audiences on an enticing virtual getaway to an island paradise — all at a moment when viewers are spending more time at home and keen for armchair adventure. It's a fortuitously opportune moment for just such a narrative, providing an endearingly welcome respite in the context of extraordinary and challenging times.

And on the subject of challenges, those aren't something in short supply in the Baeumlers' attempt to resuscitate an abandoned resort hotel and a couple of dozen broken-down villas on a remote tropical island — all with limited resources, budget worries and while simultaneously keeping their newly relocated family intact.

Before They Set Sail

But prior to their foray to the islands, the Baeumlers were already firmly entrenched in the world of home renovation and improvement. For more on that, we direct you to Renovation, Inc., a new "prequel" series premiering Sunday, Aug. 30, at 8p|7c.

HGTV hits rewind to spotlight how Bryan and Sarah built their booming home reno business off the island. Cameras followed Bryan, a licensed contractor, in his home base of Ontario, Canada, as Sarah joined their family-owned construction company as project manager. Sarah brought her keen eye for design to her new role, but she and Bryan quickly realized that, with their competing tastes and differing visions, they needed to rely on their humor and good-natured banter to work together. And, they had to do it while juggling multiple renovation projects, demanding client expectations and a busy family life.

"It’s been so exciting for Sarah and me to share our adventures in The Bahamas with HGTV fans on Renovation Island," says Bryan. “Now, we’re even more excited to go back in time and show you what we were up to before moving to the island and how it all got started.”

But for fans of the Baeumlers, there's no need to wait for August 30 premiere. New episodes of Renovation Island continue to air Sundays at 8 p.m. on HGTV, with an extended 90-minute season finale on Aug. 16. In addition, the network will air a special 90-minute episode on Aug. 23 at 8 p.m. — Renovation Island: Bryan and Sarah Tell All — that takes a fun look back at their family’s big adventure in The Bahamas.

Since its premiere this past June, Renovation Island has been one of HGTV's biggest recent success stories, with more than 18.5 million HGTV fans tuning in to watch — making it the #2 cable series in its Sunday timeslot among key demographics.

Fans can stay connected with Renovation Island and Renovation, Inc. on HGTV’s digital platforms. Episodes from each series are available on HGTV GO the same day as the TV premieres.
