When Chip and Joanna Gaines debuted their show, Fixer Upper, on HGTV, they quickly became one of America’s most adored couples to watch.
The couple worked as a dynamic and entertaining duo to turn old and forsaken properties into gorgeous family homes. Their fanbase seemed to quadruple after every episode and before they knew it, they became the faces of home-design.
Fixer Upper aired for five successful seasons, but in 2017, Chip and Joanna, who are also parents of five littles, decided it would be best to end their show for the sake of their family. However, they promised fans that this would not be the end of the Gaines Family and all of their home-renovation genius.
In April 2019, it was confirmed that the popular DIY network would be taken over by the couple. Going from an hour-long series to an entire network was not exactly what fans had anticipated, but they were thrilled nevertheless. According to Discovery, the couple’s network has yet to be named but will debut in summer 2020 and take over space currently occupied by the DIY Network, which reaches 52 million US homes.
Chip and Joanna revealed the news on their network endeavors on their personal social media accounts. Instantly, fans and followers went into hysteria as they learned their favorite designer couple would be making a bigger comeback than ever imagined!
According to CNN, “programming for the new network is currently in development, but Discovery said topics will include community, home, garden, food, wellness, entrepreneurialism, and design.” Of course, Fixer Upper will be featured on the channel, which means fans can reminisce on the good old days while enjoying all that the couple has earned. I can’t wait!
