The hit TV show 'Fixer Upper' is coming back! This time around, it'll be aired on Joanna and Chip Gaines' Magnolia Network.
The show originally aired for five seasons on HGTV, with the last episode airing in 2018.
But starting in 2021, the show will make its way to a new home, the renovating duo announced in a blog post on their website on Tuesday.
“The day we wrapped our final episode of ‘Fixer Upper,’ we really believed it was a chapter closed," the couple said in the blog post. "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. 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!”
Everybody knows.. #fixerUpper is where we’ve been and @magnolianetwork is where we’re going! But what if we tied both together as a tribute to this new journey—for old times’ sake.

To qualify to be a part of season six, you must be a current homeowner in Waco or in the final stages of closing on a home within 30 miles of Waco, the couple said under the FAQ part of its website.
"I mean it when I say that it wasn’t more than a few weeks ago that we first talked about returning to the show," Chip said. "I mentioned it to Jo, fully expecting her to tell me I was crazy. But instead, in a real sincere way, she told me she’d been missing it too. I get that it all may seem a little impulsive and that might be true. But the more Jo and I talked it over, the more we began to see it for what it really is: an opportunity to get to share with you some of the projects we care most about."
To be eligible, the duo said the homeowner(s) must:
- Be 21 years of age or older
- Their renovation budget must be a minimum of $50,000
- The Gaines', their design and construction teams, and Magnolia Network must have complete design control
- Renovations must start in early fall 2020 and to "vacate the property for the duration of the renovation."
You can email your application to firstname.lastname@example.org if you meet the listed criteria.
"We’re gearing up to start filming again, and I’ll be honest, Jo and I feel like a couple of kids trying our best to keep down a few butterflies," Chip said in the post. "But we are mostly just giddy about getting the band back together again so we can share the story of these families and their homes with you."
The show will air sometime in 2021.
