Divorced couple and former “Flip or Flop” hosts Tarek El Moussa and Christina Hall are soon to reunite in a spinoff called “The Flip Off.”

The news was announced at Warner Bros. Discovery’s 2024 upfront presentation, during which the company gave several updates regarding its lifetyle brands, including that John Cena will host Discovery Channel’s annual Shark Week.

“Flip or Flop” ended in 2022 after 10 seasons on HGTV due to ongoing difficulties from the 2017 divorce but “The Flip Off,” launching in early 2025, will feature the exes and their new spouses in a competition to find, buy, renovate and flip a house for the biggest financial gain.

The Cena-hosted Shark Week will include Part 2 of “Belly of the Beast,” which gives a real look at a great white shark feeding frenzy. Other programs airing during the celebration include “Monster Hammerhead: Species X” about a potential new hammerhead species and “Great White Serial Killer: Sea of Blood,” which follows a great white terrorizing a local village.
