Overhaulin’ Revived By Streaming Service, New Episodes Coming This Summer With Chip Foose

Streaming services have revived cancelled shows such as Lucifer and The Expanse, but automotive-themed shows haven’t seen much support. That’s changing today as Overhaulin’ is making a comeback.

The show ran for five seasons on TLC, before taking a four-year break and eventually returning in 2012 on Velocity. However, it went off the air a few years later.

It will now return this summer on the MotorTrend App with the original cast that consists of Chip Foose, Chris Jacobs and Adrienne Janic.

There’s no word on whether or not the format will change, but the show is now “crowdsourcing worthy vehicles and stories for the all-new episodes.” Fans can visit MotorTrend.com/overhaulin to nominate a friend or family member to have their vehicle “reborn.”

In a statement, designer Chip Foose said “I am super excited to work with Chris, AJ and MotorTrend to bring Overhaulin’ back to so many fans. Designing and fabricating vehicles that change people’s lives and ignites their passion is amazing, and so is seeing their faces when we unveil the finished car.”

His sentiments were echoed by MotorTrend’s head of programming and development, Mike Suggett, who said “MotorTrend is proud to get under the hood with Foose, Jacobs, Janic and the A-Team to bring new emotional stories, new hilarious pranks and new surprising restorations to automotive fans everywhere.” He went on to say the show remains an “indelible franchise because it understands and celebrates the emotional connection between cars and their owners.”

Despite its name, the MotorTrend App is a streaming service which costs $4.99 a month and provides access to countless automotive, racing and motorcycle shows. Besides being available on the web, smartphones and tablets, the service can also be watched on Apple TV, Amazon FireTV, Google Chromecast and Roku devices.

    Chip Foose’s design skills are unmatched by any other builder on Motortrend ( formerly Velocity) channel. It will be good to see what he comes up with in the future.

    For me, this was one of the best shows on TV. The shows near the end of its run were a disappointment, since virtually no effort was made to prank the victims. I’ll subscribe provided they put big effort into the pranks, as they did once upon a time. Is it the belief of the Motor Trend channel that the program would not succeed in the regular channel lineup?

    I love this show. I especially like that Chip Foose gets in there and works with everyone else, unlike the other shows of the “build a car” vein. Also, Chip Foose, unless he is one of the greatest actors on earth, is a genuinely nice guy, and gets emotional sometimes at the person’s reaction, when seeing their car rebuilt. They do a magnificent job. The only thing that concerns me about shows like this, is the super fast turn around, and wondering if thee are ever problems that need to be fixed after the car is given back to the overhauled person.
