Update: July 15, 2021.
Chip and Joanna Gaines' Magnolia Network is finally here! The long-awaited network will include Fixer Upper, Magnolia Table, Julia Child's The French Chef, and so much more. The network was originally planned for Summer 2020 but had a few delays along the road. Magnolia Network will provide over 150 hours of heartwarming and inspiring content, about food, gardening, homesteading, design and everything in between.
Many of the new shows will be available on Discovery+ on July 15th, while others will premiere throughout the summer. In a discussion with Southern Living, Chip expressed his goal for the network, saying "we hope that this second chapter is about us highlighting stories that touch you like Fixer Upper may have, but that are about completely different folks from all over the world."
The original article continues below:
Say goodbye to the DIY Network and hello to Chip and Joanna Gaines' Magnolia Network. Taking over Discovery's DIY Network, the new network (which is a joint venture between Discovery, inc. and the Gaines) will feature eight new unscripted original programmings focusing on the storytellers, creators, dreamers, and risk-takers. Along with the new programming, the network will host a new season of Fixer Upper which was previously broadcast on HGTV. Fixer Upper follows Joanna and Chip Gaines as they help fix up houses in the Waco, Texas area.
Fans had the chance to get a sneak peek of the new network back in April during a special four-hour presentation of magnolia presents: a look back & a look ahead which was hosted on the DIY Network. The network was originally slated to premiere in October but due to the Coronavirus pandemic, the network premiere has been pushed to 2021. Magnolia Network President Allison Page shared in a statement, "We are so excited to introduce viewers to their next chapter, sharing tales of courage, risk, humor, triumph, failure and rebirth in an effort to celebrate good stories and the people that live them."
Fans can now watch new episodes on Discovery +, a new streaming service that showcases new episodes of your favorite home renovation, lifestyle, cooking, and dating shows. Take that Netflix!
