If you’ve been missing Chip and Joanna Gaines’ ‘Fixer Upper’ finesse (and who hasn’t?) you will be thrilled to know the latest on their new Magnolia Network.

Ever since HGTV announced Chip and Joanna Gaines were getting their own network, we’ve been at the edge of our seats waiting for it to start already.

The behind the scenes story is that Discovery, Inc., (which purchased HGTV and a handful of other channels) decided to turn what had been the DIY Network into something more Chip and Jo centric, since their hit show Fixer Upper, and their Magnolia lifestyle brand is overwhelmingly and outrageously popular.

The original intention was to launch the new network this fall, but then the pandemic hit, and production on Magnolia Network shows, as well as thousands of other projects the world over, were put on hold.

Recently it was announced that the Magnolia Network will launch some time in 2021 (the sooner the better from where we sit), and we’ve been given a few other tasty tidbits about what’s in store. Check them out below:

They’re bringing back Fixer Upper!

Yes, the beloved series that started it all, “Fixer Upper,” is coming back. Yay! Because the five seasons that ran before the final episode aired in April 2018 were just not enough! During its initial run, Fixer Upper was the no. 1 unscripted series on all of cable television with 75 million viewers tuning in for the show’s fifth season, including 19.6 million on a weekly basis.

“The day we wrapped our final episode of Fixer Upper, we really believed it was a chapter closed. We knew we needed a break and a moment to catch our breath. But we also knew we weren’t done dreaming about ways to make old things new again,” Chip and Jo stated. “These past few years, we’ve continued tackling renovations and projects, doing the work we’re passionate about, but I don’t think either of us anticipated how the show would become such a permanent fixture in our hearts. We’ve missed sharing the stories of these families and their homes with you, and we’re excited to do that again very soon!”

There’s a new show with interior designer Brian Patrick Flynn

Self-taught interior designer Brian Patrick Flynn’s untitled project showcases his eclectic yet distinctive style and keen eye for design. Along with his team of skilled designers, Flynn creates the most breathtaking spaces and tackles decorating projects on any budget or within any scope, all with a dash of humor.

There’s also a new show with entrepreneur Jonathan Morris

Magnolia Network

Self Employed (working title) follows Fort Worth, Texas-based entrepreneur Jonathan Morris as he travels the United States meeting some of the country’s most inspiring small business owners. Together, they will share stories of unwavering resilience, insatiable ambition and the winding roads they’ve traveled to successfully build their dream jobs.

The slate already includes…

The three previously mentioned shows join original Magnolia Network series: Growing Floret, Home on the Road with JOHNNYSWIM, deVOL Kitchens (f.k.a. Bespoke Kitchens), Family Dinner, Restoration Road with Clint Harp, The FieldhouseSuper Dad, Home Work, The Lost Kitchen and Inn the Works. Magnolia Network currently has 14 original programs in production and an additional 22 original programs in development.

In anticipation of its launch, Magnolia Network will also feature upcoming talent and give viewers a behind-the-scenes look at building the Network through a digital series entitled Road to Launch: Magnolia Network. The series will begin this month on www.Magnolia.com/network and all Network social channels with a conversation between the Gaineses and restaurateur Erin French of The Lost Kitchen, a Magnolia Network original series following French’s passion for feeding people and cultivating community at her locally-sourced restaurant in Freedom, Maine.
