HGTV stars Chip and Joanna Gaines are bringing back "Fixer Upper" but on their new network soon to launch.

"Fixer Upper" stars Chip and Joanna Gaines are casting Season Six of their beloved Waco-based home-improvement show, slated to return to your screens on their new cable channel, Magnolia Network, early next year.


News of the popular show's return to the screen comes after a two-year hiatus, with Season Five ending in April 2018. Magnolia Network will be replacing Discovery's DIY Network and is set to launch early 2021.

Want to know if your home qualifies for a Fixer Upper treatment? For starters, you need to own your home (or be in the closing stages of it) within 30 miles of Waco and have a $50k renovation budget.

The network will also debut a new show, "Self Employed," starring Fort Worth, Texas-based entrepreneur Jonathan Morris.

"Self Employed" will be one of 10 shows to premiere on the network. In the show, Morris will travel across the U.S. and share the stories of small-business owners. The first season will likely focus on Texas towns within driving distance of Fort Worth, Deadline reports.

"All I want to do is champion the people, places and ideas that push culture forward," Morris said in a recent Instagram post.
