Home Town Season 6 - What We Can Tell Fans So Far

While HGTV has showcased quite a few duos over the years, few have exploded in popularity like husband and wife team Ben and Erin Napier. Since 2016, the dynamic duo has been transforming their small town of Laurel, Mississippi, one historic home at a time on their hit show "Home Town." Throughout each season, the couple works hard to bring life back into outdated properties through restoration projects and impressive knowledge of interior design, per House Beautiful.

The success of the series has spawned spinoff shows like "Home Town: Ben's Workshop" and "Home Town Takeover." In "Home Town: Ben's Workshop," which premiered on HGTV in 2021, Ben invited celebrity guests to his workshop to craft interesting woodworking projects, according to Deadline.

"I've always loved the bigger projects we do for 'Home Town' because Erin and I help make a difference for homeowners and for entire neighborhoods," Ben told Deadline. "Now I have the added bonus of sharing more of my passion on 'Home Town: Ben's Workshop.' Showcasing the patience and detail that goes into woodworking with fans who wanted to see more of that process is a dream come true."

"Home Town Takeover" saw the couple hit the road to tackle a revitalization project taking place throughout the entire community of Wetumpka, Alabama.

Ahead, we dive into the details surrounding Season 6 of "Home Town."

When will Season 6 of Home Town premiere on HGTV?

In August 2021, Deadline announced that Ben and Erin Napier would be bringing "Home Town" to HGTV for Season 6. The newest season of the show will contain 20 episodes packed with even more renovations taking place in the couple's hometown of Laurel, Mississippi.

"'Home Town' is not just about renovations, it's about the power of community," Jane Latman, president of HGTV, told Deadline. "We love that the series delivers great ratings in all key demos, season after season, but it's the inspirational message about neighbors working together, as well as Ben and Erin's enthusiastic fans, that have helped HGTV build yet another breakout franchise."

Ben's show, "Home Town: Ben's Workshop," has also been renewed for another 10-episode season that can be viewed on HGTV or streamed on Discovery+, according to Deadline. Though no specific premiere date has been announced for either show, both of the new seasons are set to air in early 2022.

Unfortunately, though, "Home Town Takeover" will not be returning for another season any time soon. In June 2021, when asked by a Twitter user if the couple would be filming another season of the spinoff, Erin shared the reason it won't be returning. "I'll be honest, the takeover life is not all that simpatico with family life," Erin responded on Twitter. "It was an amazing adventure for us, but likely the only one like it until (maybe) our girls are much older."

Who will be appearing in Home Town Season 6?

"Home Town" is hosted and guided by married couple Ben and Erin Napier. In addition to appearing on "Home Town," Ben and Erin also own home goods store Laurel Mercantile and woodworking workshop Scotsman Co.

When they were first asked about shooting an HGTV series in their hometown, the couple assumed that they were simply being contacted to create stationery. "We didn't think it would be possible," Erin told House Beautiful. "Why would it be possible to make a TV show in a town like Laurel, Mississippi? We love it very much, but that doesn't mean everyone else would. So we had fun and never had any expectations."

Aside from marveling at their handiwork, "Home Town" viewers have likely marveled just as much at the couple's chemistry and complete adoration for each other. According to House Beautiful, the two first met at the University of Mississippi in 2004. After only six days of knowing Erin, Ben told his new girlfriend that he was in love with her and going to marry her someday.

Eventually, that prediction came true, in 2008, and the two have been inseparable since. The couple also shares a daughter, 3-year-old Helen. In May 2021, Ben and Erin welcomed their second (and appropriately named) daughter, Mae (via People).

Here's what viewers can expect on Home Town

No specific details have been announced about what viewers can expect from Season 6 of "Home Town," though it might be safe to assume that it will at least include the restoration of even more properties in Laurel, Mississippi.

While Ben and Erin Napier have only shown minor glimpses of their 3-year-old daughter, Helen, on "Home Town," the sixth season of the show is likely to at least address the fact that the family has a brand new member. Their second daughter, Mae, was born in May 2021, according to People. From photos of Ben slumped over exhausted on the couch to the first special meal cooked in weeks, both parents have been sharing honest and insightful messages about the challenges of parenting two small children on their Instagram accounts since Mae's birth.

"While we are excited to have another daughter to love, we are more excited to see the bond she and Helen will have," the couple told People. "They're already so in love with each other!"

Filming has officially begun on Home Town Season 6

While it is unclear when exactly a sixth season of "Home Town" will be premiering, Erin Napier did reveal that filming had at least begun on the latest season in an Instagram post on Oct. 4, 2021. Alongside a photo of herself and her husband, Scott Napier, Erin revealed that they would be helping more Laurel residents in another season of the show. "Day one of season SIX!" Erin wrote. "Thank you so much for watching so we get to keep making this very special show together. Thank you times a million!!"

Jenny Marrs, one half of the husband-wife duo on "Fixer to Fabulous," and Carnie Wilson, founder of the musical group Wilson Phillips, were just a couple famous friends who seemed excited about the prospect of a sixth season of the show as they commented on Erin's Instagram post. "I see the love and passion in both your eyes and it's beautiful," Wilson commented. "You make people so happy and you deserve it too!! I adore your show!!!!!"

The Napiers have a few other projects premiering in the next couple of months

Despite the fact that Erin Napier has stated in the past that she did not want to film another season of "Home Town Takeover," it appears as though she was open to a slightly shorter visit. According to an HGTV press release published by Futon Critic earlier this month, a one-hour special "Home Town Takeover: Where Are They Now?" will be airing on November 27 on HGTV. During this one-hour special, HGTV will pay a visit to Wetumpka, Alabama to see just how much the original smash hit series, "Home Town Takeover," benefited the industry in their small town. During the original series, Erin and Ben Napier restored 12 restaurants, shops, historic homes, public spaces, and an entire street.

On December 26, Ben will be starring in a holiday version of "Home Town: Ben's Workshop" called "Home Town: Ben's Holiday Workshop." In the show, Ben will partner with several celebrities, including Stephen "tWitch" Boss, his wife, Allison Holker Boss, and Sig and Mandy Hansen from "Deadliest Catch," to work on special holiday projects and showcase his woodworking prowess, according to a press release from HGTV.

Ben and Erin will also be teaming up with People to star in a new renovation series, called "Home Town Kickstart." According to People, the show, which will premiere on HGTV at some point in 2022, will see Ben and Erin resuscitate important structures in small towns across America.
