The Magnolia Network
Chip and Joanna Gaines bring their renovation skills to DIY Network — by transforming it into their very own outlet! The rebranded channel (debuting in October, followed by a planned streaming service) will have a schedule curated by the Gaineses, including docuseries Home on the Road, centering on married singer-songwriters Abner Ramirez and Amanda Sudano Ramirez as they tour the country and sample local cuisine with their kids, band and crew. The Magnolia Network will also feature the full Fixer Upper library of episodes and a cooking show starring Joanna. Because let's face it, goofy Chip can't be trusted near a hot stove!

So far, 13 episodes have been ordered and we solemnly swear to watch.
