'Flip or Flop' gets extended 20-episode 7th season on HGTV

Fox411: Tarek el Moussa files for divorce from wife Christina

 

The show will go on.

That’s the message from “Flip or Flop” stars Tarek and Christina El Moussa, who have signed up for more episodes of their HGTV series despite their breakup.

HGTV has upped the current seventh season of the series to 20 episodes.

Christina El Moussa explained that even though the pair have split up, they want to work together.

“Tarek and I have been working together for a long time and we look forward to continuing to work together on ‘Flip or Flop,’” she told People magazine.

Her ex Tarek added, “From the beginning, HGTV has shown Christina and me tremendous support and we are excited to go out there and flip many more houses for ‘Flip or Flop.’”

“Flip or Flop” has been a big hit for HGTV, but the fate of the show was unclear after news of the couple’s breakup broke in December 2016.

News of the breakup revealed that Tarek and Christina had a blowout fight months earlier, in May 2016, and police were called after Tarek was spotted with a gun.

HGTV held off on making announcements about the future of the show for several months, but rumors swirled that the El Moussas were pressing to keep the show on the air.  

In the meantime, HGTV announced several "Flip or Flop" spinoffs featuring other couples.
