'Fixer Upper: Welcome Home': Joanna Gaines Has Made 1 Major Change To the Series Reboot: 'We Want to Be Smart'

Chip and Joanna Gaines are officially back. The couple has launched a new show on Discovery+: Fixer Upper: Welcome Home. The show is similar to the couple’s HGTV hit, Fixer Upper, but the reboot is part of their Magnolia Network preview — an upcoming channel dedicated entirely to the couple’s interests.

Though the reboot shares many similarities to the original, there is one major change that Chip and Joanna “want to be smart” about in the new series.

Fans have loved watching Chip and Joanna Gaines’ kids grow up

When Fixer Upper first premiered back in 2013, Chip and Joanna Gaines weren’t shy about putting their kids on television. At the time, the parents of four (now five) had kids that were so young that it would have been nearly impossible not to at least show some scenes with the children, since they were often on set.

Fans have loved watching Chip and Joanna’s kids grow up, and their youngest child, Crew, who will be three this year, has captured fans’ hearts. Now that the two have rebooted their show, though, their television family is going to shift.

Joanna Gaines revealed that her kids might not be in the new ‘Fixer Upper’ series as much

Chip and Joanna recently returned to the small screen with their new show, Fixer Upper: Welcome Home. This time, they’re on Discovery+ , though they’re essentially doing the same thing that the HGTV show did: Remodeling forever homes for Waco residents. There is one major difference in the reboot: Chip and Joanna don’t expect their kids to spend so much time on camera.

“We want to be smart when it comes to our kids,” Joanna Gaines revealed in an interview with People, according to Fox News. “ … Toward the end [of the show], I started noticing, they don’t necessarily love this [being on camera]. Now, if they volunteer to be a part, we are more than happy, but we never want to just force it for a scene.”

Chip and Joanna Gaines’ Magnolia Network will officially launch this year

When Chip and Joanna left HGTV, they promised fans that they wouldn’t be done with television forever. The couple had grown a massive following over the years, and fans had been patiently waiting for them to return to television. The two have continued to work on remodeling homes while also diving into other business ventures such as a restaurant, their massive store Magnolia at the Silos, and even a magazine.

The two announced more than a year ago that their new television channel, Magnolia Network, was in the works. Now, the network has an official release date: July 15, 2021. The couple are sharing a “Magnolia Network Preview” through the newly launched Discovery+ streaming network, which is where fans can go to watch Fixer Upper: Welcome Home.
