Need More Chip and Joanna Gaines in Your Life? New Discovery+ Streaming Service Will Feature Exclusive Content from the ‘Fixer Upper’ Couple
New Chip and Joanna Gaines content is coming your way. While the Fixer Upper couple’s Magnolia Network won’t launch until 2021, fans can get a preview of what the channel has to offer when Discovery launches its new streaming service, Discovery+, in January 2021.
‘Fixer Upper: Welcome Home’ and more new shows will be available on Discovery+
Discovery+ launches Jan. 4, 2021, and will feature an extensive library of content from Discovery’s family of networks, including HGTV, Food Network, TLC, and ID. Subscribers will also have access to fresh content from the Gaineses ahead of the rollout of the Magnolia Network later in the year.
Chip and Joanna fans will be able to watch Fixer Upper: Welcome Home, the new version of the show that kick-started the couple’s Magnolia empire. They can also stream Magnolia Table with Joanna Gaines, a cooking series where Joanna shares her favorite recipes while explaining where they come from and why they’ve become her go-to dishes.
Road to Launch will feature the Gaineses chatting with some of the other people who will have shows on the Magnolia Network. Also available to stream will be Courage to Run, a documentary chronicling Chip’s efforts to train for and complete his first marathon. In addition, premiere episodes of 10 upcoming Magnolia Network original series will be available to stream.
