Rhode Island must have turned out to be very production-friendly, because the show returned for seasons 40, 41, and 42, working on a Jamestown bungalow, a Westerly ranch, and a Narragansett cottage (46 Robinson Street), respectively. The S40 episodes aired from October 6, 2018, to February 9, 2019; S41 from October 6, 2019, to January 26, 2020; and S42 from November 1, 2020, to February 21, 2021.
