ChipJoanna, and shiplap are back! EW has the exclusive trailer, below, for Chip and Joanna Gaines' Fixer Upper: Welcome Home. Fans of the popular home renovation series — which debuted on HGTV in 2013 and ended in 2018 when the parents of five decided to step away — will see more of what they came to know and love about it: Chip's big personality, crazy quips, and demolition antics; Jo's loving eye-rolls, dry wit, and design expertise; and some stunning transformations of dream homes. Their family has also grown, as has their business — including the upcoming launch of their own Magnolia Network — so they are busier than ever.

The show premieres Jan. 29 (one episode at debut, followed by new ones Feb. 5, 12, and 19) on Discovery's new subscription streaming service, Discovery+. The platform launches Monday, serving as a preview of the couple's upcoming Magnolia Network, where the new Fixer Upper and a bunch of other original lifestyle-themed series will air.

On Monday, Magnolia will debut Magnolia Table with Joanna Gaines, which features the TV personality sharing her favorite recipes, and The Courage to Run with Chip Gaines and Gabe Grunewald, a documentary special about Chip's journey with the runner and rare cancer fighter to train for a marathon. That same day, viewers will also get the premiere episodes from 10 upcoming Magnolia original series including The Lost Kitchen, Home on the Road with Johnnyswim, Family Dinner, Restoration Road with Clint Harp, and Super Dad.

Here's a rundown of the Magnolia Network shows debuting on Discovery+, along with official descriptions:

The Gaineses first announced Fixer Upper's return with a video in August.

"The day we wrapped our final episode of Fixer Upper, we really believed it was a chapter closed. We knew we needed a break and a moment to catch our breath. But we also knew we weren’t done dreaming about ways to make old things new again,"  Chip and Joanna said in a statement. "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. We’ve missed sharing the stories of these families and their homes with you, and we’re excited to do that again very soon!"
