Chip & Joanna Gaines’ Magnolia Network Set to Launch in January: Get Details on the New Shows Coming

Bring on the barn doors and shiplap…

More than two years after announcing that they would be getting their own TV channel, former Fixer Upper stars Chip and Joanna Gaines’ Magnolia Network is finally a go. 

According to Deadline, Magnolia Network-– a rebrand of Discovery’s DIY Network–- will launch as a linear pay-TV network on January 5, 2022.

The Magnolia Network Instagram page confirmed the news this week, promising viewers “inspiring original series” focused on “home and design, food and gardening, the arts and more.”

The first show slated to air on the network will be Fixer Upper: Welcome Home, though Magnolia Network will also feature episodes from other original series including Magnolia Table with Joanna Gaines, Restoration Road with Clint Harp, Home Work, The Lost Kitchen, Family Dinner, The Johnnyswim Show, and Super Dad.

Previously-aired episodes of ‘Fixer Upper’ and This Old House will also air on the network, along with DIY Network shows Maine Cabin Masters, Barnwood Builders, Restoring Galveston, Bargain Mansions, and previously-aired episodes of DIY Network series Stone House Revival, Building Off the Grid, and Beachfront Bargain Hunt Renovation

“It wasn’t long ago that watching TV meant time together as a family,” the former HGTV couple stated in a press release. “It was a place where people of all ages could gather and be informed, entertained, and inspired by the kind of honest, authentic programming that brings people closer. That’s what we’ve set out to build with Magnolia Network, and we’ve been amazed by the stories and storytellers we’ve found, people whose lives are living proof that our world is full of beauty, hope, courage, and curiosity. 

“We can’t wait to see these stories brought to life on cable this January, and we’re hopeful about the impact it might have–to help reclaim the best of what television can be,” the statement continued. 

Chip and Joanna became household names after ‘Fixer Upper’ premiered on HGTV in 2013. It was the highest-rated series on the network when the show ended its run in 2017.

  1. This 100% Thank you!!! I feel the same way. Also how do they got a network?! The Scott brothers have more shows already on HGTV and have a bigger fun base but they didn’t get a network. Well maybe HGTV asked and they said no but still they have a huge international fanbase.

    I liked Fixer Upper originally but I soon realized it was Joanna’s design in every house not your taste with a designer cleaning up your ‘vision’. It’s a white kitchen and shiplap everywhere (I’ve come to hate shiplap. It’s the modern version of 70s wood paneling and needs to go).

    While the HGTV reno shows are all reality and all that goes with it, if you watch a few show, you can see which designers actually design with their clients and each house looks different. Joanna’s designs all look the same, over and over, and over again…

  2. I’m still in shock these two garnered enough attention on a hit show for a few years to get an entire network.

    I’ve seen a few episodes on Fixer Upper and I really don’t understand it. Redecorating shows will always have an audience, but it felt like every episode was the same crap they did to the house before. Shiplap, big random words throught the house on walls, *neutral* colors… very very basic.

    Chip (yes, a middle aged man named Chip) just acts like a big kid, seemingly annoying J. I just find this couple annoyingly fake so I’m sure I’m just being biased

    1. The few episodes where she is forced not to do a white kitchen were hilariously bad.

      On a while I don’t mind these two so much but I can do without the onscreen flirtin and innuendos, we get it you have 5 kids we know you all are hot for each other.
