HGTV stars Chip and Joanna Gaines announced that their hit series Fixer Upper would be coming to an end, but now their TV empire is only growing.
During an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Friday, November 9, the pair announced that their next move is that they are getting their own television network! “I think we’re really going to carve it out in a way that really makes sense to us and our families,” Chip told Fallon. “It’ll be filmed a lot in Waco, Texas, so we don’t have to travel a whole lot. All things being equal, we could not be more excited.”
The former HGTV stars announced the news on The Tonight Show, revealing to viewers that we can expect to see kids Drake, Ella, Duke, Emmie Kay, and baby Crew “grow up,” as well as other sweet family moments. Magnolia representative John Marsicano also confirmed that the pair aren’t just returning for one show, but are in fact in the “early stages of talking with Discovery about a lifestyle-focused media network.”
“We signed a non-disclosure and it said quote unquote you can tell your mother but that’s it,” Chip, 43, joked after Fallon asked if the couple would ever return to TV. “So mom, I just wanted to make a quick announcement, we are coming back to television. You are going to get to see the kids grow up, you are going to see us, well maybe a six-month delay like the rest of the world, but we are excited to be back.”
