The launch of their forthcoming TV network was originally set for October 4th. But due to the coronavirus pandemic, that date has been postponed.

“Right now, it’s important that we all continue to look out for one another by upholding the guidelines set forth by the experts, leaders and front-line heroes working tirelessly to get us all through this difficult time,” said the Gaineses in a release.

“With this as our top priority, we’ve decided to delay Magnolia Network’s launch until we can safely resume production. We have an incredible team behind us and we look forward to the days ahead when we can get back to work, telling good stories that encourage, motivate and inspire hope,” they continued. “In the meantime, we are hosting this special preview where we’ll give you a peek into what we’ve been working on and more of what’s to come for this network we’re building!”

Chip and Jo pulled back the curtain Sunday night in a four-hour special on the DIY Network, which will soon become the home of Magnolia.

In the special, Magnolia Presents: A Look Back & A Look Ahead, Chip and Joanna took a walk down memory lane to where it all began with Fixer Upper and revealed 10 new shows that will call the cable channel home.

“It’s crazy what can happen in two years just with the dynamic of family and how it changes,” Jo said Sunday night.

Fixer Upper is where we had been,” Chip added, “but where we are going is the future.”

The goal of Magnolia Network is to unite the couple’s passion for all things home, cooking, renovation, design, gardening and business.

It’s a reflection of the entrepreneur’s current Magnolia portfolio, with shows that ultimately capture one unique similarity: People who are living their life in a passionate and an authentic way. Chip and Jo hope to curate a channel where the whole family can enjoy programming that leaves them encouraged and inspired.

The couple spent time on Sunday night introducing the new faces who will soon become a part of our homes through the Magnolia Network.

Here’s a sneak peek of the Magnolia Network lineup!

This program follows another husband and wife team and personal favorites, Abner Ramirez and Amanda Sudano Ramirez. Together they make up the duo, Johnnyswim, whose song “Home” became the theme song for Fixer Upper. The show follows the couple’s life on the road with their two beautiful children (and one on the way during filming) as they seek home and community along the way.

Johnnyswim have long been favorites of Chip and Jo. The duo has been the headlining guest at Magnolia’s Silobration four years in a row.

“Amanda and Abner are magnetic,” Chip and Jo told People. “Ever since we met them a little over five years ago, we’ve been drawn to the way they navigate family, community, and life on the road. They’re not just musicians, they’re storytellers and together, they are a true picture of the relentless pursuit of following a dream and making it a reality; but their dream doesn’t stop with them—it’s extended to their family and fans and everyone they meet.”

2. Bespoke Kitchens

This series travels across the pond to the England-based deVOL Kitchens in which their team design and transforms kitchens and interior spaces for their clients. Prepare to see one-of-a-kind kitchens that give even Joanna a run for her money!

3. Family Dinner 

Joanna’s love for cooking means their network will include a show about food. Hosted by celebrity chef, Andrew Zimmern, this series takes a deep look into how families around the country come together over food and the unique traditions that bind it all together.

4. Restoration Road

Fans of Fixer Upper will recognize the frontman of this show, which follows woodworker, Clint Harp, as he travels across the country in search of some of the oldest structures still standing today. The Fixer Upper alum spends time discovering some of the most revolutionary restoration projects the country has to offer.

5. The Fieldhouse 

After Justin Bane’s NFL dreams were dashed due to injury, he turned to helping others by opening The Fieldhouse gym in Abilene, Texas with his wife Annie. This series takes a look at how they’ve turned broken dreams into a new inspiring reality.

6. Super Dad

Comedian, father and DIY expert Taylor Calmus, otherwise known as Dude Dad, along with his team of builders are teaming up with families that have ambitious ideas for their children to build custom toys and playhouses. Everything from a pirate ship jungle gym to a custom baseball launcher, Taylor will work together with fellow super dads to make their kids’ dreams come true.

7. The Lost Kitchen

Owned by Erin French, The Lost Kitchen is a historic mill turned restaurant in Freedom, Maine where the population is just over 700. This series follows Erin’s unconventional restaurant, which features an all-women staff, and only serves 50 people a night for just a portion of the year. Hundreds of visitors from around the world make their reservations at The Lost Kitchen by submitting postcards in hopes of getting picked by Erin and her staff to experience an unforgettable meal.

8. Inn the Works

Lindsey Kurowski is taking on a big project in this series. Along with her team, she sets out to restore, renew and polish The Oak Knoll Lodge in Big Bear, California, a four-acre campground originally constructed in the 1920s that has since fallen on hard times.

9. Home Work 

This show follows Andy and Candis Meredith, a husband and wife team who have been restoring old homes together for six years. The Meredith’s are a modern-day Brady Bunch, with their seven children joining them on the journey. This classic renovation show follows the Meredith’s as they move out of their 900 square-foot home into a 113-year-old, 20,000 square-foot schoolhouse, which they’re ready to tackle and make a home of their own.

10. Growing Floret

This previously announced program tells the story of Erin Benzakein, who is not your ordinary farmer. The founder of Floret Flower Farm takes viewers on a journey through her year-long quest to build a sustainable organic flower farm in Washington state.

“Gardening is a thing I love,” Jo said ahead of unveiling the footage. “It grounds me. It’s super important in my life.”

Although Chip and Jo gave no specifics about their own shows or the return of Fixer Upper on the new network, it’s believed that among the lineup of entertainment will be Jo’s cooking show, which was previewed in a recent Food Network special, as well as a show following their castle renovation.
