Home renovation experts Chip and Joanna Gaines are bringing back their beloved TV show Fixer Upper in a reboot for their Magnolia Network.
The series, featuring the famous Christian couple, will begin airing episodes in 2021 with the launch of Magnolia Network. The network is replacing Discovery’s DIY Network.
“Fixer Upper” ended in 2018 after five successful seasons on HGTV. It became one of the most-watched cable telecasts in 2017 as homeowners across the country took to renovating and decorating their homes in true Gaines fashion. At the time, Chip and Joanna announced they were ending their show to focus on their family.
However, Magnolia Network President Allison Page told Deadline that the married couple unexpectedly shared their idea of bringing back the show.
“We did not expect it or see it coming, and it’s a wonderful, wonderful surprise,” Page said.
The Gaines also shared the news in a statement, saying, “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.”
