CHIP & JOANNA GAINES PLANNING RETURN TO TV, WILL CREATE NEW BRANDED NETWORK
Discovery has confirmed it is in exclusive talks with Chip and Joanna Gaines to return to television in an expanded role that includes their own branded network. The Gaines took a time-out after their ultra-popular HGTV show Fixer Upper show ended. A new baby was added to the family, and the duo took some downtime after a whirlwind rise that saw them add products and new businesses that went far beyond merely renovating homes. There had been rumors of a talk show for the couple, who have put Waco, Texas on the map. During Fridays episode of The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, Chip and Joanna Gaines said the downtime is about to end. We signed a non-disclosure and it said, quote/unquote, you can tell your mother but thats it,” Chip said. “So mom, I just wanted to make a quick announcement, we are coming back to television. You are going to get to see the kids grow up, you are going to see us, well maybe a six-month delay like the rest of the world, but we are excited to be back..
