This Time Next Year (US) hosted by Emmy nominee Cat Deeley (So You Think You Can Dance) challenges people to change their lives and achieve a self-declared goal in the space of a year.

The show follows the emotional journeys of ordinary people as they embark on extraordinary missions to change their lives, over the course of just twelve months. But through the format’s trademark time travel television model, what would have been one year for them, is only moments for viewers as each transformation is revealed instantaneously.

From reconstructive surgeries to heart-warming reunions, infertility to weight loss, no hurdle is too big for the brave individuals who have chosen to take change their lives. Before she sends them off on their journeys, Deeley meets each participant and they make their personal pledge for change in front of a live audience. Only after their reveal will viewers learn how, and if, they achieved their goals as the participants relive their challenges and share their successes.
