'Fixer Upper' stars are returning to television

Good news for those feverishly dreaming of shiplap since Chip and Joanna Gaines pulled the plug on Fixer Upper: The former HGTV dynamo and parents of five will return to television, they announced Friday on The Tonight Show.

"We signed a non-disclosure and it said, quote/unquote, you can tell your mother but that’s it," Chip Gaines said, looking into the camera. "So mom, I just wanted to make a quick announcement, we are coming back to television. ... We are excited to be back!"

The Gaineses are in talks with Discovery, the parent company of HGTV, to launch their own network, reports People.

Says a rep for Magnolia, the couple's company, "the details surrounding this opportunity remain a work in progress, but together, our hope is to build a different kind of platform for unique, inspiring and family-friendly content." (Read more about the couple's ultimate fixer-upper: Waco, Texas.)
