It’s been two years since Fixer Upper aired its final episode on HGTV. And now, the popular home renovation show is getting rebooted on an all-new channel.
Chip and Joanna Gaines just announced that Fixer Upper is returning for more episodes. The new season will be broadcast exclusively through the couple’s company, Magnolia Network, which is set to premiere sometime in 2021.
“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,” the couple said in a statement.
Although Chip and Joanna have continued their renovation efforts in private, they miss sharing their projects with the world. “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 continued. “We’ve missed sharing the stories of these families and their homes with you, and we’re excited to do that again very soon!”
Fixer Upper originally premiered in 2013 and ran for five successful seasons until airing its final episode in 2018. At the time, the show was the number-one unscripted series across all networks, with a cool 75 million people tuning into the final season.
According to Allison Page (president of Magnolia Network), the reboot was a no-brainer. “We are thrilled to welcome back the very show that introduced us all to Chip and Jo in the first place,” she said. “Fixer Upper is a cultural phenomenon that took an entire programming category by storm when it launched in 2013, and we can think of no better way to launch this network.”
Oh, how we’ve missed you two. (Giant clock obsession included.)
