Joining host Paige Davis, who signed on in July, will be Doug Wilson, Genevieve Gorder, Hildi Santo-Tomas, Vern Yip, Frank Bielic, and Laurie Smith. Beloved carpenters Ty Pennington and Carter Oosterhouse will also be back.

TLC confirmed to PEOPLE that Doug and Hildi will be designers, but no details have been released about the roles the other original cast members will fill in the new season. There will be no “mentors,” according to a representative for the network.
