So the couple has a lot on their plate these days. Enough that you can imagine it might be difficult to keep up with it all.

The happy couple spoke with Variety about everything they have in store for 2022. They’re excited about the future. They have hope. Things are looking good. The pandemic changed things.

Chip told Variety, “We’re so excited, we’ve got literally a countdown clock that leads us to the exact second. We hope that when that channel conversion happens that it’s a beautiful spark in the universe that really inspires millions of people. We hope that 2022 is an opportunity for all of us to kind of break out of what has felt like a pretty stagnant couple of years because of circumstances beyond a lot of our control with COVID and the like. But even when you think about politics and the ecosystem as it relates to the world as a whole — we’re ready for there to be a hopeful, fresh new start. And so the fact that this happens to be happening on January 5, 2022 — we think that it’s happening for a reason and at a perfect time.”

Chip And Joanna Gaines Stay Learning

Later in the interview, Joanna Gaines added, “What we’re hoping for this new year is that we all we stay learners, whether that be learning about the other person next to you, and widening your mind and your heart to them, or being learners just in ways that you were built to do.” They don’t want to become stagnant in their careers. They want to always be learning and listening to other folks.

Gaines concluded, “What are you built to do? What life are you built to live? Hopefully, we can journey along with a lot of the people that are connecting with us. We don’t have any surprises or anything. It’s more just, hey, we’ve got this network off the ground. We’ve got it in streaming, we’ve got it in linear. Now let’s really build this. We’re just getting started. The sky’s the limit.”
