Chip and Joanna Gaines haven’t been on television since 2017, but the Texas couple will be making their return later this year when they launch their highly anticipated ‘Magnolia’ network. Though they are most famous for their former HGTV series ‘Fixer Upper,’ the couple says this move was years in the making. Now, Chip and Joanna are opening up about their decision to leave their hit TV show and what’s to come on their new network.

‘Magnolia’ is set to launch on October 4th, and will feature a number of programs focusing on topics such as community, home, garden, food, wellness, entrepreneurialism and design. Though many were shocked when the couple decided to leave HGTV, now Chip and Joanna Gaines have explained their decision to leave and focus on their brand. “We were pouring so much time into doing this thing that had to fit in this format, and it was a conflict with our growing business,” said Joanna in a recent interview.

I've been thinking a lot lately about how grateful I am for all of YOU and the support and encouragement you've shown to our family and our business over these last few years. When I was blogging years ago to an audience of about 17 people, I would have never dreamed of any of this. You all are truly so kind, big hearted and the most supportive. We wouldn't be here without you. ❤️#thankful

They even claimed to have wanted to leave ‘Fixer Upper’ two years before actually leaving the show in 2017. The couple decided to bet on themselves, and since have grown their empire and became icons in the city of Waco. With their network set to launch this year, Chip and Joanna are ready to take their brand to the next level.
