Fans looking for some good news during such a strange time will be happy to know the king and queen of fixing up houses are returning. Chip and Joanna Gaines have announced, they will be back on television in 2021. Originally their new network, Magnolia, was going to launch in October, but that has changed because of COVID.
The couple said, “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.” Their show, Fixer Upper, ran for five seasons and had over seventeen million viewers a week during the final season.
Chip and Joanna Gaines couldn’t get away from doing what they do best. The two not only redesigned the headquarters of their network, but they renovated a hotel in their hometown of Waco. The couple said, “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.”
They said they missed sharing their stories and family moments with their fans. They have five children from the ages of fifteen to two. The two said now they have had time to refresh and spent the time they needed to with their family.
