The Gaines’ first show, Fixer Upper, first premiered on HGTV more than a decade ago, but after the couple quit filming to work on their own network, home designers everywhere (including us aspiring designers) couldn’t wait to see what they would produce next. Now that Magnolia Network is live, here are the five shows we’ll be streaming on repeat.
The OG show that made Chip and Joanna famous is back in a familiar way. The couple has returned to Waco (though, did they ever really leave?) to redesign houses for newlyweds, young families, and sisters. As always, Chip and Joanna deliver a modern take on old-world charm and help dozens of lucky new homeowners plant roots in the place where their story began.
2. Family Dinner
The Gaineses have partnered with celebrity chef Andrew Zimmern on a new show that intersects travel and home cooking. In each episode, Zimmern visits a different family across the country to learn about their regional cuisine and historical food facets. “Whether it’s over Sunday supper, a holiday brunch, or a summer barbecue, families come together over food,” says Zimmern in the trailer for the show.
Cookbook author, food blogger, and pastry chef Zoë François explains how to achieve beautiful and delicious desserts in the comfort of your own kitchen in her new show, ZoëBakes, which you can watch exclusively on Magnolia Network. She shares her tried-and-true baking tips, like how donuts are best enjoyed warm and cookies with big chocolate chunks are always better. Those are the need-to-know culinary lessons that we can’t get enough of.
Travel to the backwoods of Freedom, Maine, a tiny town with a population of just over 700 people. It’s here where chef Erin French welcomes select guests to her restaurant The Lost Kitchen, where she serves locally-inspired dishes made with freshly foraged ingredients. French has partnered with Chip and Joanna on a new show aptly titled The Lost Kitchen Show. “Every week is a new story, new ingredients, new diners, new challenges for me and the team—the only constant is it’s home,” says French in the show’s trailer.
