House Hunters, 2051

A couple and their pet in futuristic space suits.

Welcome back to “House Hunters”! We’ve showed the oxygen broker Lamar and the N.F.T. lawyer Jay three houses, to try to fit their different tastes.

A chic bunker home.

Lamar liked house No. 1: a spacious underground bunker conveniently situated under the Midwestern Sea of Lava. But Jay complained that the oven was not large enough to cook a traditional Thanksgiving roach.

A modernist purgatory home.

House No. 2, in L.A., offered a stunning view of fire tornadoes, and the open-plan kitchen caught Jay’s eye, but Lamar is reluctant to live aboveground, because there is no ozone layer.

Upstate safe house.

House No. 3, in upstate New York, was a bit over the couple’s budget, but it ticked a lot of boxes for both: location, space for entertaining the five remaining humans on Earth, and a mid-century interior.

They are sad to leave their current home, in the abandoned lithium mine, but they are both excited for a change of pace—and also to escape the imminent flooding by toxic agricultural runoff. And the home they chose is . . .

House No. 3! “We love waking up to the bubbling sound of the swamp and hearing the song of the great-winged cockroach at sunset. It’s the perfect place to bring up our mutant rat baby!”
