Chip and Joanna Gaines Return To TV With An Inspirational Home Network

Hold on to your shiplap, folks! Chip and Joanna Gaines announced on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” that they are getting their own TV network! The dynamic duo couldn’t stay away from the cameras for long. After their television departure from “Fixer Upper” the Gaines’ welcomed their fifth child, Crew, to the family and opened a new restaurant venture “Magnolia Table”. But their fans have been eager to see them return to television. We know we’ve been eating up their interviews recently!


As the couple joins host Jimmy Fallon, they show off some starstruck behavior that makes us feel like they are just one of us and not tainted by “celebrity”. Chip is clearly having a moment as he sits down and eagerly waves to the show’s house band “The Roots” while Joanna points out how excited she is to touch the famous Tonight Show desk. Chip even reaches across and takes a sharpie from Fallon’s cup as a souvenir! Jimmy doesn’t miss a beat and begins digging behind his desk for items Chip can snatch – a stuffed panda and a box of tissues are quickly stored away in Chip’s blazer! Of course it doesn’t take long for Joanna’s “Mom face” to appear as she tries to focus on the interview and reign Chip and Jimmy back in. What a hoot!

In seriousness, Jimmy mentions how the couple stepped away from television so quickly and unexpectedly. Chip openly responded that they needed to take a step back. “TV is a tough business, we came into this whole thing sort of ‘shock and awe’. We had never had any inspiration to be on television, we didn’t know anything about the business… after five years we really realized we really wanted to take a step back and really focus on our marriage, focus on our family and kinda catch our breath.”

Then Fallon asks the all important question “Would you guys ever return to TV?” True to form, the soft announcement came from Chip during The Tonight Show in a most amusing way. Focusing on the camera, the Fixer Upper star began, “We signed a non-disclosure and it said quote unquote you can tell your mother but that’s it…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.”

According to their spokesman, Discovery Inc. which owns HGTV is considering a lifestyle network for the Magnolia brand. It’s unsure how much Chip and Joanna themselves will be in front of the camera, though fans clearly want to see more of this unique partnership that makes us all appreciate our own spouse’s quirks!

“We never rule anything out and we’re go-getters,” Chip told People. “We love to live life to the fullest and sometimes the journey is unexpected to say the least.”

Clearly taking a short break from being in the homes of millions of families every week was the move the couple needed to figure out what works best for their family. As fans of the Gaines’ we couldn’t be more excited for this news and hope that it won’t be long before we have a little Magnolia love playing again on our televisions!

Today's Devotional

A Prayer to Our Prince of Peace - Your Daily Prayer - December 14

Jesus didn’t rule like King David with an earthly palace or majestic throne or royal robes conquering enemy nations through a mighty army. Instead, Jesus came in poverty and humility, to reveal a heavenly kingdom and to conquer the curse of sin through his own death.
