“Let the Countdown Begin!” Joanna Gaines Posted the First Behind-the-Scenes Photos from Magnolia Network
We may be about to enter a new decade, but 2020 will bring some old faves back to TV. Chip and Joanna Gaines’ new TV network is set to debut in October of next year, and we’re already getting sneak peeks of what they’re working on.
“A little rusty but we’re back at it again!” Joanna Gaines posted to Instagram on Monday night. “Our network is launching October 2020 (which feels simultaneously so soon and yet so far away). Let the countdown begin!”
The series of three images features Chip and Jo being filmed in a stone-walled room with beams, the last one apparently after Jo flubbed a line, laughing and with her hand on her forehead.
In October, we learned about the first show on the new network: “Home on the Road” is an original docuseries that will follow the Gaines’ friends and married singer-songwriters Abner Ramirez and Amanda Sudano Ramirez as the musical pair navigates family life and touring North America with their band Johnnyswim. The show will also explore local culture of the various cities the band visits. It is set to debut with the launch of Magnolia Network in October 2020.
It’s been over a year since the pair announced that they’d be launching Magnolia Network as part of the Discovery umbrella, which also owns HGTV. Magnolia will take the reins from the DIY Network, offering a lineup of “unique, inspiring and family-friendly” programming, which will include previously aired “Fixer Upper” episodes.
