According to People, the popular HGTV series that features the now-separated couple Christina and Tarek El Moussa is expanding to five cities in 2017 and 2018. The spinoff shows have been in the works for over a year, long before the El Moussas announced their split after seven years of marriage and two children. Tarek and Christina are currently busy filming Season 7 of Flip or Flop, and new episodes are currently airing, but beyond that HGTV hasn't announced any future plans for the original series.
"With the original Flip or Flop, we found that what resonated with viewers was the authenticity, the expertise, the experience and the results they saw in the show," says Allison Page, general manager, U.S. programming and development for HGTV, Food Network, and Travel Channel. "Because every market is unique, there was an opportunity to highlight what works in various regions by featuring successful people in different locations who had mastered the art of flipping in their town."
