Fixer Upper: Joanna and Chip Gaines look for new projects

  • August 11, 2020

Fans were elated at news that Joanna and Chip Gaines were rebooting their hit home renovation show for their new network.

And now they are looking for some lucky diehards who are ready to have their ‘demolition day’ on the revamped Fixer Upper.

The couple are currently in the process of looking for new home renovation projects in the Waco, Texas area for their reality series which is set to premiere in 2021 according to a Monday report from TMZ

To be eligible for the casting call for their upcoming Magnolia Network homeowners need to live within 30 miles of Waco which was already a requirement  in the series previously.

However according to the publication there are a few changes including having at least a $50K remodeling budget, giving the couple all design and renovation decisions, and being willing to vacate their home as projects are expected to last between 30 and 35 weeks. 

Casting candidates would have to find their own alternative housing in the meantime.

Another stark difference with the revamp will be that the couple will only be considering ‘homeowners who have closed on a home and/or currently living in their “Fixer Upper”‘ according to TMZ.

Previously  Joanna and Chip helped out clients who were in the process of looking for a home they wanted to buy and renovate.

Any interested parties should email casting@magnolia.com to be considered as homeowners are expected to be casted by September.

The power couple also said: ‘The day we wrapped our final episode of Fixer Upper, we really believed it was a chapter closed.

‘These past few years, we’ve continued tackling renovations and projects, doing the work we’re passionate about, but I don’t think either of us anticipated how the show would become such a permanent fixture in our hearts,’ it was added. 

During its initial run, Fixer Upper was the no. 1 unscripted series on all of cable television with 75 million viewers tuning in for the show’s fifth season, including 19.6 million on a weekly basis. The reboot will be produced by the Gaines’ production company Blind Nil.

‘We are thrilled to welcome back the very show that introduced us all to Chip and Jo in the first place. Fixer Upper is a cultural phenomenon that took an entire programming category by storm when it launched in 2014, and we can think of no better way to launch this Network,’ said Magnolia Network President Allison Page. 

‘And as we continue to round out our programming slate, we’re excited to announce projects with designer Brian Patrick Flynn and entrepreneur Jonathan Morris, two talented individuals with exceptional stories. There’s a lot to look forward to, and we’re just getting started!’

Self-taught interior designer Brian Patrick Flynn’s untitled project showcases his eclectic yet distinctive style and keen eye for design, it stated in the press release.

Flynn ‘creates the most breathtaking spaces and tackles decorating projects on any budget or within any scope, all with a dash of humor,’ it was added.

‘Self Employed’ (wt) follows Fort Worth, Texas-based entrepreneur Jonathan Morris as he travels the United States meeting some of the country’s most inspiring small business owners. Together, they will share stories of unwavering resilience, insatiable ambition and the winding roads they’ve traveled to successfully build their dream jobs,’ it was also shared.

These three shows join the previously-announced slate of original Magnolia Network series, including: ‘Growing Floret,’ ‘Home on the Road with JOHNNYSWIM,’ ‘deVOL Kitchens’ (f.k.a. ‘Bespoke Kitchens’), ‘Family Dinner,’ ‘Restoration Road with Clint Harp,’ ‘The Fieldhouse,’ ‘Super Dad,’ ‘Home Work,’ ‘The Lost Kitchen’ and ‘Inn the Works.’ Magnolia Network currently has 14 original programs in production and an additional 22 original programs in development.

 Magnolia Network will also feature ‘upcoming talent and give viewers a behind-the-scenes look at building the Network through a digital series entitled Road to Launch: Magnolia Network,’ it was also announced.

The series will begin this month on www.Magnolia.com/network and all Network social channels with a conversation between the Gaineses and restaurateur Erin French of ‘The Lost Kitchen,’ a Magnolia Network original series following French’s passion for feeding people and cultivating community at her locally-sourced restaurant in Freedom, Maine.
