New Kids on the Blocks star Jonathan Knight is Hangin' Tough in a new way because he will be putting his restoration knowledge to use by traveling around New England and fixing up dilapidated farmhouses. 52-year-old Knight is the star of HGTV's new fixer-upper series, "Farmhouse Fixer," which is set to premiere with 6 episodes in March.

According to a release from HGTV, Knight will be taking audiences along for the ride while he "carefully preserves the original craftsmanship and historic charm of classic homes while he also modernizes layouts, updates interiors and gives his clients endless reasons to cheer."

25 Years of Restoring Farmhouses

“Restoring the American farmhouse is not just a hobby for me—it’s my passion, my obsession, and I’ve been doing it for more than 25 years,” Jonathan Knight said in a statement.

He added, "It’s so easy to just go knock down an old house. It’s way harder to renovate them so that families can enjoy them for years to come. That’s the reason this work is so worth it."

The season will kick off with the ex-NKOTB star restoring a 1700s New Hampshire farmhouse alongside his friend, designer Kristina Crestin.

The series will highlight Knight getting down and dirty and doing such jobs as converting a backyard tool shed into a potting bench and chicken coop, as well as building custom renovations for other properties, like a goat enclosure.

“I love a good old farmhouse,” the former singer said. He continued, “To me, being on a farm is a way of life. It’s the real deal. Old farmhouses are disappearing off the landscape, but these are American treasures that should be saved.”

"Farmhouse Fixer" premieres Wednesday, March 3, at 9 PM on HGTV.
