The news about HGTV hit Windy City Rehab has been nearly non-stop since the show debuted in early 2019, with much of that news being of the less-than-positive variety. Designer Alison Victoria and her (now former) co-host Donovan Eckhardt have been slammed with lawsuits over the homes they renovated for the series, and fans will know that Eckhardt was mostly uninvolved in Season 2. With new episodes for that season set to debut later this year, do Alison Victoria's teases for Windy City Rehab Season 3 mean that another full season will be ready soon?
Whenever one season of Windy City Rehab wraps, viewers become eager to know about a new season and when they should expect it. And, this was truly no different after the second season ended on HGTV back in December 2020. Season 2 focused on the beginning of the legal troubles endured by Alison Victoria and Donovan Eckhardt, with Victoria breaking ties with the contractor and beginning the long process of dissolving their many joint business interests. It. Was. JUICY. While we know that additional Season 2 episodes will air later this year, though, is the show already working on a full Season 3?
Here's one of several teases for Windy City Rehab Season 3 that Alison Victoria has posted to Instagram recently:
Hmmm. OK! This definitely makes it seem like a full new set of episodes are headed our way at some point in the near-ish future, right? And, Alison Victoria, who is still our rehabber-in-chief on Windy City Rehab, would certainly know whether or not the work she's doing is for a whole new season of her popular show, or simply an addition to Season 2. But, there's still a bit of confusion, seeing as how we're without both some info on those new Season 2 episodes or an official greenlight on Season 3.
When it was announced, back near the end of February 2021, that new Windy City Rehab was on the way, it was made clear that it wasn't going to be the much-asked-about Season 3, but additional episodes for Season 2. Likely because of all the legal issues surrounding the series, the second season was kept to a scant five episodes (though they were 90-minutes long), as opposed to the 12 episodes audiences saw with Season 1. Even with nine new one-hour episodes on the way, we don't know if those installments had already been filmed when they were announced, or if those could be the ones filming now.
As you can see from Alison Victoria's post, this is a photo of her project book for Ari Smejkal, who runs The Hammer Design Group and works on custom woodworking assignments for Victoria's renovations. Would she title the book "Season 3 Ari Projects" if it weren't really for Season 3? Honestly, I'm not sure. Maybe she titled her project binder before HGTV made it clear these were going to be Season 2 episodes. But! She did also post this:
Take a look at those hashtags. With #WindyCityRehab and #Season3isComing clearly stated in the caption to this picture of Alison Victoria doing her best to, I assume, not fall down because she has both her arms and legs crossed, it would appear to be a sure thing that we'll get a full Windy City Rehab Season 3 sooner rather than later, despite the network not announcing it quite yet.
While we wait for official word on premiere dates for both the rest of Season 2 and a potential Season 3 of Windy City Rehab, know that you can watch past episodes on Discovery+. For more to watch in the coming weeks, check out our 2021 fall TV schedule!
