Erin Napier announces future TV plans for the HOME TOWN duo
From Movieguide® employees
Famous HGTV duo Erin and Ben Napier’s newest show, HOME TOWN TAKE OVER, was an instant hit with longtime fans. The “Special Event Series” accompanied the couple as they traveled to Wetumpka, Alabama, to use their renovation skills on an entire city, not just a house.
In May 2021, the couple introduced the new show and also welcomed their second child, Mae. The couple also share their first daughter, Helen. In a recent Instagram post, Erin answered fans’ questions about her plans for future shows now that they have two daughters.
“We can FINALLY officially tell you, #HGTVHomeTown Season 6 and #BensWorkshop Season 2 are in production and will come in 2022. I’m so proud of you @ scotsman.co!” She wrote on Instagram.
For the fans, however, questions remained about the possibility of a continuation of HOME TOWN TAKE OVER, which Erin addressed via Twitter.
“I’m honest, takeover life is not so simpatico with family life. It’s been an incredible adventure for us, but probably the only one like it until (maybe) our girls are much older, ”she said.

In a recent Instagram post, Erin shared a quote from CS Lewis about how God brings peace to those who believe in Him.
“CS Lewis gave me tremendous comfort today with words from 1948,” wrote Erin, “whether a bomb or a virus.”
“In a way, we think too much of the atom bomb. ‘How should we live in the atomic age?’ I am tempted to answer, “Well, how you would have lived in the sixteenth century when the plague struck London almost every year, or how you would have lived in a Viking age when Scandinavian robbers could land and cut your throat every night; or indeed, since you are already living in an age of cancer, an age of syphilis, an age of paralysis, an age of air raids, an age of railroad accidents, an age of car accidents. ‘
In other words, let’s not start by exaggerating the novelty of our situation. Believe me, ladies and gentlemen, you and everyone you love were sentenced to death even before the atomic bomb was invented: and a fairly high percentage of us would die uncomfortably. We actually had one huge advantage over our ancestors – anesthetics; but we still have that. It is utterly ridiculous to whimper like that and draw long faces because scientists have added another chance of painful and premature death to a world already teeming with such opportunities, where death itself was not an opportunity but a certainty to have.
This is the first point to be aware of: and the first measure is to pull ourselves together. If we are all destroyed by an atomic bomb, let that bomb make us do sensible and humane things – pray, work, teach, read, listen to music, bathe the kids, play tennis, chat with our friends over a pint and a game of darts – not huddled like scared sheep and thinking about bombs. They can destroy our bodies (a microbe can do that), but they don’t have to control our minds. “
