Fans were given a great surprise from Fixer Upper’s Chip and Joanna Gaines. Known for their parts in the Fixer Upper franchise, fans have come to know this couple over two decades. The original Fixer Upper came to screens in 2013. The Gaines also starred in Fixer Upper: Welcome Home and Fixer Upper: The Castle. While it’s been more than 20 years since they released the first Fixer Upper, they are now happy to announce two new shows to their Magnolia Network.

New Addition To The ‘Fixer Upper’ Franchise

The first of the new series on the Magnolia Network is the Fixer Upper: The Hotel. At this point, the new show will follow Chip and Joanna Gaines as they renovate Hotel 1928 in Waco, Texas. Indeed, that will be exciting since Waco is also their hometown. Originally, the project was introduced in 2019. First, the idea was hinted at in Variety’s November 2022 cover story. Within the article, the pair revealed that they had a boutique hotel under construction, set to open in fall 2023.

“This has been the biggest project of my life — the castle is second now,” Fixer Upper‘s Joanna Gaines told Variety. “With four floors of restaurants and rooms and a whole ballroom.” She continued, “But both of these projects, the castle and the hotel, have really been led by the history of it, the design being driven by that more than, what do I want to do with it? It’s definitely been something that I’ve had to let the story lead that design. So it’s been a fun learning process for me where I feel like I get to show up and just be a student and get schooled for a second.”
