In season seven of the popular series, Tarek and Christina, who spent several years building their successful house flipping business, will continue to focus on finding, buying, renovating and flipping homes for profit in Southern California.

"From the beginning, HGTV has shown Christina and me tremendous support and we are excited to go out there and flip many more houses for Flip or Flop, " Tarek added. HGTV has now ordered 20 episodes for the seventh season, according to the Post.

Tarek and Christina issued separate statements about the upcoming season, which was announced late on Monday.

Through it all, though, the El Moussas have insisted they would continue working together on their show.

HGTV cameras captured the ups and downs of Tarek and Christina's house flipping business as well as their family life.

The two later said the incident, during which neighbors reportedly saw Christina running from the home crying, was an "unfortunate misunderstanding".

The couple says the incident prompted them to seek counseling and they've chose to separate while evaluating the future of their marriage. Tarek filed for divorce in January. But they claim to be on good terms with each other and successfully co-parenting their children - Taylor, 6 and Brayden, 18 months. The word is still out of the network plans renew the show for an eighth season.

The announcement of the hosts' - and former couple - return to the home improvement series comes amid a highly-publicized divorce that followed a domestic altercation last spring.

HGTV said Flip or Flop attracted more than 17 million total viewers during its last season and has helped create an HGTV franchise that will extend to house flipping experts working in Las Vegas, Atlanta, Fort Worth, Nashville and Chicago.
