In another scene, Erin Napier excitedly welcomes children into their expertly decked out for the holidays store, People reported.

A press release from HGTV said, “Ben will get holly jolly when he welcomes father-daughter duo Captain Sig and Mandy Hansen from Discovery Channel’s “Deadliest Catch” to make special wood creations just in time for Christmas, including a brand new mantle for the workshop that honors the Hansens’ Norwegian heritage. Mandy also will work with Ben’s wife and “Home Town” co-star Erin to give the shop a seasonal overhaul. In addition, Ben will team up with dancer and TV personality Stephen “tWitch” Boss and his wife, Allison Holker Boss, host of “Design Star: Next Gen,” to build an interactive wall display for a local children’s center play space. To further spread holiday cheer, tWitch and Allison will deck the halls of the children’s center with Erin in preparation for a special celebration.

“Home Town: Ben’s Workshop” has 10 episodes in its upcoming second season, according to  Deadline. Season one in 2020 had just four episodes. In a statement to the outlet, Ben described how “Home Town: Ben’s Workshop” is different, saying, “Now I have the added bonus of sharing more of my passion on “Home Town: Ben’s Workshop.” Showcasing the patience and detail that goes into woodworking with fans who wanted to see more of that process is a dream come true.”
