Chip & Joanna Gaines Return to Small Screen in ‘Fixer Upper: The Castle’

Chip and Joanna Gaines are teaming up (again) to refurbish a famous Waco landmark. And lucky for us, they are documenting the entire renovation process from start to finish.

The Magnolia Network duo are preparing to release an all-new series, titled Fixer Upper: The Castle. The show revolves around a 100-year-old structure, called Cottonland Castle, that could use some Chip and Jo magic.

The goal is to modernize it while still maintaining its historical significance. (Easier said than done.) The eight-episode series not only documents the historic renovation project, but it also highlights the castle’s significance to Waco.

“This castle is one of the most impressive properties in the entire Waco, Central Texas area, and I’ve wanted it for two decades now,” Chip says in the trailer. “The plan for the castle is to bring this beautiful property back to its original state.”

“This is a way bigger renovation than we anticipated,” Joanna adds.

In addition to modernizing the interior, there are also several exterior elements that need to be addressed. “Getting the same exact stone from 100 years ago has been a challenge,” Joanna says.
