“Home Town” is back for another season of home renovations in one of Mississippi’s small towns.

Season two of the HGTV show, which is set in Laurel and stars Erin and Ben Napier, will premiere at 8 p.m. Monday.

In addition to appearing on HGTV, it’ll be available for free on HGTV.com, HGTV’s TV Everywhere mobile and connected device apps, and video-on-demand platforms.

Season one of the show was a hit for HGTV, with 15 million people watching the exploits of the charming couple as they renovated historical homes in their hometown. Season two promises to be different for at least one reason — Erin was pregnant with the couple’s first child, Helen, during the filming. She gave birth Thursday.

“Ben and I don’t think of our work as simply home renovation,” said Erin in a press release. “We find the common thread in the things that the homeowners love — the story of their life and family — and how that relates to the house. It’s satisfying when that comes together.”

“I’m excited to see our baby grow up in Laurel, where everybody takes care of each other,” Ben said. “It’s a special place.”

Season two will last 10 episodes and air on Monday nights. It promises to feature more of what drew so many to the show already, including Ben’s woodworking projects.

He’ll use reclaimed materials to build one-of-a-kind pieces for the homeowners, including a bench made from front porch flooring and a dining room table constructed from repurposed sun-room beams.
