The 5 Shows We’re Most Excited to See When Magnolia Network Debuts
Chip and Joanna Gaines’s new TV network is sure to be a hit among home improvement buffs. Here are the shows—and the personalities—we're dying to see in 2022.
On January 5, 2022, Discovery’s DIY Network is being rebranded as the Magnolia Network, with home improvement personalities Chip and Joanna Gaines at the helm. The move has been a long time coming, with delays occurring due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
The Magnolia Network will be a linear paid TV network, meaning it can be included in both cable and satellite television packages. In the press release announcing the launch, Chip and Joanna said, “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.”
Some Magnolia programming already has been available to stream on Discovery+ in 2021, but TV audiences will get even more of their favorite home improvement shows—plus some new additions—once the network officially launches early next year. Here are five of the things we’re most excited to see on our TVs in the new year when the network launches.
Fixer Upper: Welcome Home
The original Fixer Upper introduced Chip and Joanna to the world, and the current iteration, Fixer Upper: Welcome Home, is sure to be one of the most popular programs on their new network. This spin-off features the couple we’ve come to know and love doing what they do best: transforming properties that need a little TLC into dream homes.
While there will be plenty of home improvement content on the Magnolia Network, there will also be some great programming for gardening enthusiasts. Namely, Growing Floret, a 4-part docuseries, focuses on Erin and Chris Benzakein and their quest to create an organic flower farm in Washington’s Skagit River Valley. In the press release announcing the new network, Chip and Joanna said, “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.”
Joanna Gaines might be known primarily for her home decorating skills, but she’s also an excellent home cook as evidenced by her cooking show, Magnolia Table with Joanna Gaines. Viewers get to see Gaines in the kitchen whipping up some of her most-loved recipes and guiding viewers on how to re-create them.
Homegrown star Jamila Norman, an Atlanta-based farmer and owner of Patchwork City Farms, is on a mission to spread the word about sustainable living in her community. Her work focuses on urban farming, showing you don’t need a significant amount of acreage to build a beautiful—and nutritious—garden.
Andy and Candis Meredith took on a massive project when they bought a 20,000-square-foot schoolhouse with the intention of turning it into a family home for themselves and their seven children. The entire adventure is documented on Home Work, which is one of the renovation shows that will appear on the Magnolia Network.
