Fans of "While You Were Out" are in luck: The popular home makeover series is returning to television next year.

TLC and HGTV have joined forces to revive the series, which originally aired on TLC from 2002 until 2006. The show will follow as TLC and HGTV stars redo rooms in neighboring homes as a surprise from the homeowners to their significant others.

HGTV's stars will include Bristol and Aubrey Marunde, David Visentin, Hilary Farr, Karen E Laine, Mina Starsiak, Nicole Curtis and Vanilla Ice.
