Well, if we're excited, we can bet former Fixer Upper carpenter Clint Harp is looking forward to the network's debut and some exciting potential opportunities for collaboration, even if he wasn't quite expecting the news. (Currently, Harp has his own show Wood Work on the DIY Network, which will become Chip and Jo's Magnolia Channel.)

"Kelly and I truly loved working with HGTV and DIY Channel and, like many people, were surprised to hear of the upcoming changes within the Discovery networks," Harp wrote in an email to the Waco Tribune-Herald. "As for me, I'll be diving back into conversations with producers and networks about some great possible projects. Obviously, working with Chip and Jo is always on the table for me, as I think we have done pretty well together!"

The hotly anticipated launch of Magnolia network is slated for the summer of 2020. We guess that gives us plenty of time for Fixer Upper reruns until then.
