The wait is nearly over for Fixer Upper’s return.
When Chip and Joanna Gaines revealed they were ending the effective renovation series that made them famous, HGTV fans were devastated. But a brief hiatus turned out to be what many felt was a definitive end.
Fixer Upper is very soon returning to TV and fans couldn’t be more excited.
In early January, the new trailer was released and it proved in less than two minutes that while some things will change, others will stay the same.
The best aspects of the series that made it an enduring fan favorite will be preserved by Fixer Upper: Welcome Home.
A “Fixer Upper” sort of series was required by Magnolia Network.
The Gaineses had been eager to prove from the moment they revealed their new Magnolia Network that it wasn’t just a rehash of what they had done before.
A documentary series about the couple’s favorite band, Johnnyswim, was the first series for Magnolia and had little to do with renovations.
As more series were revealed, fans could not help but note that Magnolia had nothing remotely reminiscent of Fixer Upper, which replaced DIY in the Discovery family.
When the renovation pair eventually disclosed that they would reinvent their iconic program and carry it to the new channel exclusively, that changed.
‘Fixer Upper: Welcome Home’ shows us what the Gaineses do best.
7 Things You Can Find in Every “Fixer Upper” Episode
Since the hosts had immense talent, there’s no doubt that “Fixer Upper” became a big success.
Chip took the lead on the demo and build, while Joanna did the design and staging.
Really breathtaking were the before and after shots.
But the show’s heart went beyond just the level of the surface.
Fans fell in love with the sweet friendship between the Gaineses, their foolish antics, and their dedication to helping homeowners build dream spaces.
The new trailer reveals that in the reboot, these basic elements will remain.
In the teaser, Chip says, “This is going to be like nothing we’ve ever seen before,” “It’s good to be back out here.”
A few scenes of the couple smiling, Chip smashing through walls and cracking jokes, and Joanna pondering concept concepts are included in the brief teaser.
“If you’re talking about a demo, that’s a pickup line.a “That’s pickup line if you’re talking about a demo.
A short clip also gives a glimpse of a shiplap wall that became the staple of “Fixer Upper” on HGTV.
A few changes will also include ‘Fixer Upper: Welcome Home’
Although the key components of Fixer Upper will remain on the Magnolia Network, some modifications can also be expected from fans.
For one, fans who fell in love with the sight of the farmhouse in Waco to see the Gaines children grow up may be disappointed to see less of Chip and Joanna’s personal lives.
“We want to be smart about our kids,” the Fixer Upper Star told People (via Fox News).
“When we started the show, they were younger, and since they’re a part of so much of what we do, it was just organic to include them,” she added.
But I noticed they didn’t really love it at the end. We’re more than happy now if they want to volunteer, but we never want to just push them into a scene.
That’s the choice they should make. We’ll see as many children as they choose to give us.
Fans can look forward to seeing the first four episodes of Fixer Upper: Welcome Home starting Jan. 29 on Discovery+ even without the Gaines kids. Via February 19, new episodes will be available weekly.
