Report: Quibi Renews ‘Murder House Flip’ for a Second Season

Short-form streamer Quibi has picked up true crime home makeover show “Murder House Flip” for a second season, Deadline reported Wednesday.

From Josh Berman (“CSI”), Chris King (“Penny Dreadful”), author Katherine Ramsland and Sony Pictures TV, the show takes homes around the United States that are well-known for having murders committed in them and renovates them to help leave their pasts behind.

Hosts Mikel Welch and Joelle Uzyel “take these homes from morbid to marvelous,” according to Deadline.

“Murder House Flip was a genre mashup series pioneered by an amazing creative team. We can’t wait to continue our collaboration with Quibi as we build upon this successful first season. We look forward to showcasing more incredible stories and transformations!,” Elyse Seder, SVP of alternative & syndication programming at Sony Pictures Television, said.

In late May, Quibi booked a second season of “Dishmantled” – a cooking competition show hosted by Tituss Burgess (“Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt”) – as its first series renewal.

The renewals come in spite of a rocky start for the platform since its April launch. Quibi is reportedly on track to accrue just 2 million paid subscribers by April 2021, more than 5 million less than its year one projection.

One of the biggest criticisms of the service at its outset was that despite being designed for mobile, it didn’t support AirPlay or Google Cast. This meant that if you wanted to share a video at home, there was no way to put it on the big screen.

The screencasting issues have since been rectified, however, and the company is reportedly in talks with Roku and Amazon to bring its content to their connected TV devices.
