We're less than one month out from the epic premiere of the Trading Spaces reboot! But if April 7th feels like a lifetime away, we've got exciting news: TLC for the upcoming season to tide you over. From what we can tell, the spirit of the show is back with a vengeance.
The video starts with present-day Paige Davis welcoming viewers back to the series, while wearing an all-too appropriate "this ain't my first rodeo" shirt. A few iconic moments from the past run before the teaser, giving viewers a peek at the new season — which proves to be quite revealing. First, we learn carpenter Ty Pennington will be a designer in one of the new season's episodes. Then we find out designer Frank Bielec celebrated his 70th birthday on set, and, yes, we can confirm that there will in fact be tears. But watching Hildi Santo-Tomas play ping pong and climb inside of a box proves the casts' work hard, play hard mentality is more accurate than ever.
Along with the cold opener, TLC revealed the new key art, featuring (from left to right) Bielec, Laurie Smith, Carter Oosterhouse, Genevieve Gorder, Davis, Pennington, Doug Wilson, Santo-Tomas, and Yip.
Seeing the gang back together again is enough to make us want to tear up right here and now. But we'll save the waterworks for the big premiere on Saturday, April 7 at 8 p.m. on TLC.
