In July 2018, The Brady Bunch house went up on the real estate market for the first time in 50 years, and HGTV knew it was meant to be. With the network’s vision, the Brady kids reunited after 15 years to recreate Paramount Studios’ Stage 5—where they all grew up filming the iconic ‘70s family sitcom—inside the famously recognized Studio City, California house whose façade was used.
But The Brady Bunch kids—Maureen McCormick (Marcia), Eve Plumb (Jan), Susan Olsen (Cindy), Barry Williams (Greg), Mike Lookinland (Bobby), Christopher Knight (Peter)—weren't alone for this unique home renovation and worked alongside eight of HGTV’s finest hosts. Before the premiere of A Very Brady Renovation on Monday, September 9 at 9 p.m. EST, check out the complete roster for this once-in-a-lifetime project.
Famously known as Marcia Brady, Maureen McCormick returned to her roots once again to help replicate the studio set she grew up on in the actual Brady Bunch house. The bestselling author teamed up with The Property Brothers’ Drew and Jonathan Scott, Christopher Knight (Peter), and Susan Olsen (Cindy) for one of the biggest home renovation projects to air.
America's favorite middle child, Jan Brady (aka Eve Plumb) joined HGTV's A Very Brady Renovation, along with the rest of her TV siblings—working closely with Restored by the Fords' Leanne and Steve Ford. The long-time painter also lent her artistic skills to incorporate special artwork into The Brady Bunch house.
Since starring as the youngest of The Brady Bunch, Susan Olsen has become an author, a radio personality, and an active animal welfare advocate. In honor of 50 years of friendship with the Brady kids, she got the opportunity to work with HGTV stars The Property Brothers and Good Bones stars Mina Starsiak and Karen Laine—not to mention, spend time with her on-screen brother, Mike Lookinland (Bobby Brady).
The Brady Bunch house wouldn't be complete without Greg's groovy attic and the one-and-only Barry Williams worked closely with HGTV's Lara Spencer to make it happen.
"We've maintained friendships throughout the years," he told House Beautiful about his Brady family. "What is unique about this experience over the past year is we’re getting together at the same time, collectively as a group, so there’s another chemistry that sort of takes hold and is very familiar."
The premiere of A Very Brady Renovation shows Christopher Knight tackling a number of different projects within The Brady Bunch house alongside the Property Brothers and Jasmine Roth. And it goes without saying that he saved the day more than once—from paint swatching to restoring the family's horse statue. Of course, he also made sure to have fun all while following his TV mom's rules.
The youngest of the Brady boys, Mike Lookinland—whom you know as Bobby Brady—remains close to his youngest TV sister, Susan Olsen (Cindy). Together, they took on the renovation of a lifetime. "The attention to detail has no limit in this place," he says in the premiere episode about the show's first reveal.
The Property Brothers may have an entire HGTV franchise, thanks to their incredible skills and hilarious sibling relationship, but the duo wasn't afraid to admit that recreating The Brady Bunch house was the largest residential renovation in their careers, but nevertheless, loved the challenge.
"I bet you that A Very Brady Renovation will break all ratings in this space, and it'll be one of the most-viewed shows," Jonathan shared with House Beautiful.
Restored by the Fords stars Leanne and Steve Ford appreciated being part of a group that respected the important of every single Brady detail. The brother-sister duo were ecstatic to work with Maureen McCormick and Eve Plumb.
Best known as HGTV's favorite mother-daughter team, Mina Starsiak and Karen Laine are up for any challenge, including being the first to strip down The Brady Bunch house to its studs and creating its 2,000 additional square feet. The two looked relied on Susan Olsen's memory to help them nail every last detail.
HGTV's Lara Spencer grew up on Brady Bunch re-runs, so it felt like a perfect fit when she was asked to accessorize the home with iconic touches, like the lampshades, candy dish, and the girls' stuffed giraffe. The host also got the chance to work closely with Barry Williams on Greg's groovy attic and go thrifting with Marcia, Marcia, Marcia!
"He remembered so many of the details and was so into it," Lara told House Beautiful about working with Barry. "It was really a dream come true, not only as someone who works in design and an HGTV personality, but also as a fan of this show."
