The six Brady kids, who now range in age from 57 to 64, gathered at the iconic Studio City home that served as their show's exterior before HGTV begins renovation work. Property Brothers Drew and Jonathan Scott, who are producing the reality show based on the "full-scale overhaul” of the single-family home, joined Barry Williams (Greg), Maureen McCormick (Marcia), Christopher Knight (Peter), Eve Plumb (Jan), Mike Lookinland (Bobby), and Susan Olsen (Cindy) for the walk-through. Noticeably absent was Lance Bass, who lost the bidding war to HGTV but came on board last month as a producer. A Very Brady Renovation is scheduled to premiere in September 2019, and HGTV is promising “additional surprise celebrity guests.”
