HGTV Orders Nine Additional Episodes of ‘Windy City Rehab’

Season 2 Mired in Legal Woes

HGTV has ordered nine additional one-hour episodes for season two of “Windy City Rehab.” The series features designer and home renovation expert Alison Victoria who transforms historic fixer-uppers in her Chicago hometown.

During this second season, Victoria and former co-host Donovan Eckhardt were sued by a couple who alleged shoddy construction on a home project, but the lawsuit was resolved. Eckhardt then left the series in the middle of the season after he filed a lawsuit claiming defamation and emotional distress based on his portrayal in the show. The suit was filed against Discovery Inc. and the show’s producer Big Table Media. Victoria was not named in the suit.

The new episodes will find Victoria at a crossroads and determined to keep working in her hometown. To continue doing the job she loves, Alison will rely on her skills, strength and grit while taking on more high-stakes historic flips, massive client projects and risky real estate opportunities.
