“It’s always been our desire to highlight inspiring, authentic storytelling on Magnolia Network. We’re excited to be able to share these stories now with an even wider audience,” said Chip and Joanna Gaines. “We can’t wait to bring these stories we love—including our next adventure, Fixer Upper: The Castle—to HBO Max this September.”
Following its successful digital launch on discovery+ last summer, Magnolia Network launched its linear home in January in front of an audience of 3 million viewers, landing a spot among the top 25 basic cable networks – up 17 spots from the previous year – and establishing Magnolia Network as the fastest growing cable network in 1Q22 based on YOY growth.
