ET Exclusive Previews

Fixer Upper: Welcome Home
Now streaming

As part of the new Magnolia Network, the revamped series sees Chip and Joanna Gaines return to what they do best: turn outdated homes into stunning and innovative living spaces. “The day we wrapped our final episode of Fixer Upper, we really believed it was a chapter closed. We knew we needed a break and a moment to catch our breath. But we also knew we weren’t done dreaming about ways to make old things new again,” the couple previously said, taking time to focus on their expanding business and growing family. “These past few years, we’ve continued tackling renovations and projects, doing the work we’re passionate about, but I don't think either of us anticipated how the show would become such a permanent fixture in our hearts. We’ve missed sharing the stories of these families and their homes with you, and we’re excited to do that again very soon!”

Frozen in Time
