Chip and Joanna Gaines made a name for themselves as stars of HGTV’s Fixer Upper . Fans wanted more of the couple’s energy and style, so their show became the network’s most-watched home renovation show.

They’ve since moved on to bigger projects, including Magnolia Network, their own television network. They do, however, have one major concern about embarking on such a venture. Chip and Joanna Gaines in 2017 | Roy Rochlin/FilmMagic

$ Crew Gaines, the couple’s fifth child, was born not long after filming wrapped. They’ve been itching to get their hands on new projects ever since.

In 2019, the two announced that Magnolia Network (the name of their company, which includes their home goods store, magazine, bakery, and restaurant) would be launching their own home channel. Chip and Joanna have been providing previews of a few of their shows in collaboration with Discovery Network since then. They’ve signed on for another season of Fixer Upper , and Joanna’s cooking show, Magnolia Table , is now available on Discovery+.

Chip and Joanna Gaines Have One They’d been in front of the camera for years, essentially doing what they were told. They’re now the ones in charge, which they enjoy, but it comes with a whole new set of responsibilities. Chip and Joanna revealed in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter that they are concerned about the possibility of having to cancel shows. “We haven’t experienced much failure post-success, post-fame, however you want to articulate it,” Chip said. “It’s difficult to hear [Discovery CEO David Zaslav] say, ‘You’re going to fail 70% of the time.’ I wouldn’t be in business if I only got three out of ten houses right. ”

Joanna, on the other hand, had a different perspective on the situation: she hаs no plаns to cаncel аnything — аt leаst for the time being. “They’re stories we’re pаssionаte аbout telling..”

I don’t mind if some only аppeаl to а smаller demogrаphic. We’re going to mаke а second seаson. ”

Chip and Joanna Gaines also addressed the dying industry of cable television. Every year, an increasing number of people are abandoning their high-cost cable subscriptions in favor of more affordable streaming subscriptions. Chip and Joanna will have to deal with this as they prepare to launch their own cable network. Joanna, on the other hand, appears unconcerned. She stated, “We can’t stop cable from dying; that’s not our mission.” “However, while it’s still possible, we hope you’ll spend an hour or five with us and feel like it was time well spent.” ”
