The Magnolia Network, created by Chip and Joanna Gaines, is finally taking off in a huge way.
The “Fixer Upper” stars had a trial run of the network on the popular streaming service Discovery+ this last year. It consists of a brand new series, “Fixer Upper: Welcome Home,” as well as a number of other cooking, home decorating, DIY, and other wholesome series.
Now, the Magnolia Network will take over what was once the DIY Network started on January 5. New year, new shows, new place, same iconic TV couple.
In order to prepare yourselves, and your DVR, here are the original shows that will premiere on cable in January.
Schedule for Magnolia Network on Cable
According to TV Insider, the first season of “Fixer Upper: Welcome Home” will premiere on Wednesdays at 9 p.m. The network will be particularly busy on Saturdays. “The Lost Kitchen,” “Mind for Design,” “The Johnnyswim Show,” and “Home Work” are all airing at different times on the network.
Other shows also include “Magnolia Table with Joanna Gaines” on Sundays at 1 p.m. and “Zoë Bakes” on Sundays at 2 p.m. Other January shows include “Mind for Design,” “Family Dinner,” and “Restoration Road with Clint Harp.”
For the months of February and March, there will be other shows also airing on the network. Don’t worry, though, some of the original DIY Network shows will still be on for fans to watch. That includes “Maine Cabin Masters,” “Barnwood Builders,” “The French Chef,” “Beachfront Bargain Hunt Renovation,” and “Lakefront Bargain Hunt Renovation.”
For Chip and Joanna Gaines, making the move to cable was a plan they had all along for the network.
“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. 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,” the Gaines family said in a news release regarding the new change.
We love to see the full-circle moment.
Two New Shows on Magnolia Network
Deadline also reported that Magnolia Network will be adding several new pilot shows to the roster, including “Rental Redo” and “Zest for Life with Eduardo Garcia.”
“Rental Redo” stars Keyanna Bowen, an interior designer, photographer, and stylist. Starting on December 17, Bowen will teach viewers how to update rental spaces to make them feel like home as cost-effectively as possible.
Meanwhile, the pilot for “Zest for Life with Eduardo Garcia” will drop on December 26. It stars Garcia, the chef and co-founder of Montana Mex. He is the “bionic chef” because he has a prosthetic left arm. He had to learn how to be in the kitchen again after the accident. On his show, viewers will learn about other people and their profound life stories. This includes life-altering events they’ve had to conquer.
