Will HGTV's Desert Flippers Get A Season 4?

Desert Flippers is one of the latest home renovation hits for HGTV, with series leads Eric and Lindsey Bennett even drawing favorable comparisons to the channel's first couple, Chip and Joanna Gaines. With the Gaineses off working on their new show, which is nothing like Fixer Upper, the time is perfect for the Bennetts to swoop in and take the throne.

That is, if their show gets renewed for a fourth season. The third ended over a year ago (via IMDb), but reruns are playing all the time on HGTV. Chip and Joanna might be the seasoned pros in Waco, but the Bennetts are all about the desert, which they use as a kind of flipping playground to renovate distressed homes. Their dynamic, although similar to their predecessors, is also different, so it seems only fair Desert Flippers gets the opportunity to be as successful as Fixer Upper.

Eric and Lindsey Bennett are open to doing more Desert Flippers

A new season has yet to be announced, and the Bennetts told Desert Sun earlier this year that everything is a bit up in the air following Discovery Inc.'s acquisition of HGTV. The announcement for season 3 was made in December 2017, and the first episode premiered in July 2018. Using that timeline as a standard means we should have heard by now if season 4 was a go. "So we don't know. The direction that we're going it's kind of ever-changing and it's kind of nice to take a breather and assess," Lindsay Bennett said. 

Her husband added, "The other big factor is you have to look at the real estate market. Four or five years ago you could trip on the sidewalk and find a distressed property. But property values are pretty high right now and there's a lot of people trying to get a piece of Palm Springs and the desert in general." The Bennetts also noted it would be a big commitment for them to sign on to another 14 house flips, so only time will tell.

The happy couple is adjusting well to their newfound fame, though, telling People last year fans are welcome to approach them out in the wild. "What really usually happens is we're at Costco with all of our children... and it's like herding feral cats. Someone will stop us and want to take a picture, and it's this juggling of like, 'Okay quick, let's get a picture while our kids are wreaking havoc on the store,'" Lindsay Bennett joked.
