Sept. 28 (UPI) — Magnolia Network, a new linear cable network from Discovery and Chip and Joanna Gaines, will launch Jan. 5.
The new channel will replace DIY Network on Jan. 5 at 9 p.m. EDT, the Magnolia Network official Instagram said Tuesday.
Fixer Upper: Welcome Home, a reboot of Chip and Joanna Gaines’ popular home renovation series Fixer Upper, will be the first show to air on Magnolia Network, according to Deadline.
The network’s slate will also feature Magnolia Table with Joanna Gaines, Restoration Road with Clint Harp, Home Work, The Lost Kitchen, Family Dinner, and the five-season Fixer Upper library.
“It wasn’t long ago that watching TV meant time together as a family. It was a place where people of all ages could gather and be informed, entertained, and inspired by the kind of honest, authentic programming that brings people closer,” Chip and Joanna Gaines said in a statement. “That’s what we’ve set out to build with Magnolia Network, and we’ve been amazed by the stories and storytellers we’ve found, people whose lives are living proof that our world is full of beauty, hope, courage and curiosity. We can’t wait to see these stories brought to life on cable this January, and we’re hopeful about the impact it might have — to help reclaim the best of what television can be.”
Magnolia Network launched earlier this year on the Discovery+ streaming service and the Magnolia app.
“On the heels of our successful digital launch this past July, we are excited to fulfill our initial goal of bringing Magnolia Network to the broadest audience possible, meeting viewers wherever they are,” Magnolia global president Allison Page said in a statement.
Chip and Joanna Gaines came to fame on Fixer Upper, which aired for five seasons on HGTV from 2013 to 2018. The couple discussed the “low point” that led them to ending the show on Today in July.
