Chip & Joanna Gaines Announce They Are Returning To TV With A New Discovery Network: 'Excited To Be Back'

Chip and Joanna Gaines are making an epic return back to television!

The former "Fixer Upper" stars shocked fans during an appearance on "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" on Friday. The couple revealed that they're not only making a comeback to TV, but they're also getting their own network.

"We signed a non-disclosure and it said quote unquote you can tell your mother but that’s it," Chip replied after Jimmy asked if the duo would return to TV in the future. "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."

HGTV's parent company, Discovery Inc., also confirmed the news in a statement to Access:

"Discovery is thrilled to confirm that we are in exclusive talks with Chip and Joanna Gaines. The Gaines' are exceptional people, true authentic storytellers and creative visionaries who will nourish millions of people with quality, family-friendly programming accessible on a 24/7 network and across all screens. Stay tuned…working out the final details...more to come soon!"

The happy news comes after the couple announced they were calling it quits with their HGTV series back in 2017. The hit reality TV show aired its final episode in April 2018.

I can't believe tonight marks our very last episode of Fixer Upper. This picture is of us filming our pilot in 2012 and then our last scene of fixer in 2017. What a journey this has been! Check out my blog to read an update from us and to see what's on the horizon for our family and Magnolia as we move forward. The end is bittersweet, but we are excited for what's to come. Tune in tonight for the series finale on HGTV @ 9/8c! #fixerupper (link in profile)

The network will be the latest addition to the Gaines' expanding Magnolia empire. The couple already has a restaurant, a Target home design line, a lifestyle magazine, and their famous Magnolia Market.

The busy couple also balances their list of successful projects with parenthood! The Gaines' welcomed their fifth kiddo back in June.

Our baby boy, Crew Gaines, is here and we couldn’t be more in love. He made an unexpected (and speedy) entrance into the world two and a half weeks early - which is fitting given he was a sweet surprise from day one. Thank you for all your thoughts and prayers. We are so grateful.
