It's been almost three years since the final episode of Fixer Upper aired on HGTV, leaving fans to fill the Waco-sized hole in their hearts with re-runs and Hearth & Hand merch from Target.
But no more! Because Chip & Joanna Gaines are back with an all-new season of Fixer Upper, and this time, it's on their own terms.
The duo left HGTV to launch their TV network, Magnolia Network, and has spent the last two years planning and producing a lineup of original home makeover, food, and lifestyle content; including a cooking series hosted by Joanna, and the new iteration of Fixer Upper, called Fixer Upper: Welcome Home.
The series is set to re-launch on the discovery+ streaming service at the end of January, and will then move to the Magnolia Network when it launches later this year. In the meantime, Chip & Jo teased a sneak peek at the season on the Magnolia YouTube channel yesterday. The clip starts off with Chip saying, "Alright baby girl, we are back at it!" and Jo chiming in "Back at work!"
Chip also promises that the season "is going to be like nothing we've ever seen before."
Indeed, the promo includes shots of hoarder homes, epic demos, and jaw-dropping before & afters that only the Gaines's can pull off.

The content and format appears to be similar to the previous seasons of the show, and the couple appears not to miss a beat: “It’s good to get back out here, man. We love doing this for a living,” Chip says.
So when will the new Fixer Upper start?
The new season is set to launch on January 29, 2021 on discovery+ and new episodes will be available each week through February 19.
Can't wait? In the meantime, episodes of Joanna's new cooking show, Magnolia Table with Joanna Gaines, has already debuted on discovery+. Three episodes are currently available, with more rolling out throughout the month.
