HGTV superstar couple Chip and Joanna Gaines of “Fixer-Upper” fame have unveiled the programming for their new Magnolia Network.

A collaboration between the duo and Discovery, they will not appear on-camera in every Magnolia show — but they’ll be involved in development (and appear in many of them). Shows that don’t feature the Gaines’ include other people with businesses and lives that have similar sensibilities (design, cooking and farming). 

While Magnolia won’t officially launch on linear TV until January 2022, a full slate of Magnolia originals will roll out July 15, along with a Magnolia app. 

In addition to the complete library of “Fixer Upper” episodes and new spinoff show “Fixer Upper: Welcome Home,” here’s what you can expect from Magnolia programming — some of which is already available to preview on Discovery’s new streamer, discovery+.
