Jonathan Knight (renovation expert) and Kristina Crestin (interior designer) will be back on our screens with a TV show that have stolen our hearts and changed the history of renovation TV shows.
The wait for the first season of Farmhouse Fixer seemed to have have lasted a lifetime. On 2018, Jonathan Knight shared the pilot onboard of the NKOTB cruise; and on January 2019 he was already sharing what was happening behind the scenes of the shooting; back then, the pilot was set to premiere at the end of the year.
But, we had to wait a little longer; on January 2020 we learned we were waiting not for a pilot but for an entire season! and the premiere was scheduled for late 2020. However, the pandemic arrived and the shooting had to be postponed. On June 2020, Jonathan Knight and Kristina Crestin were able to resume their meetings, and Farmhouse Fixer was re-scheduled to air first quarter of 2021.
Farmhouse Fixer, a six (6) part renovation series, premiered on HTGV on March 3, 2021; and since the last episode aired, we’ve been waiting for the announcement of the second season and… “the time has arrived.” 😉
In a candid interview for the New York Times, Jonathan Knight opens his farmhouse so that photographer Tony Luong can capture Knight’s breathtaking vision and life style, while talking about his family and how he grew to become “Farmhouse Fixer.”
Kristina Crestin shares more about Jon and his true devotion to the work we’ve watched in Farmhouse Fixer on HGVT; Steven Kurutz writes, “When they achieve the right balance of historic preservation and modern amenities, Ms. Crestin said, Mr. Knight has been known to cry off camera.”(1) It’s an interview to read over and over again, to print it and frame it.

So! No more tweets asking HGTV for a second season of Farmhouse Fixer! Now it’s time to say thanks and celebrate!
