Fixer Upper: Welcome Home Season 2 - Details We Know So Far

Though there is an abundance of home decorating shows now, there's perhaps no show as beloved asĀ "Fixer Upper." Fans fell in love with hosts Chip and Joanna Gaines when the show premiered on HGTV.

So, it's no surprise that "Fixer Upper" is returned as "Fixer Upper: Welcome Home." Stars Chip and Joanna Gaines retired their design hats in 2018 after spending five years renovating 56 homes, per Good Housekeeping. But, two or so years later, the Gaines are back in action on their own Magnolia Network.

The reboot officially premiered on January 29, 2021 and ran weekly episodes until mid-February. Available on streaming service Discovery+ as well as Magnolia, the show was a hit for old and new "Fixer Upper" fans, the outlet said.

"Fixer Upper: Welcome Home" was so beloved that the reboot has been renewed for a second season. More Gaines adventures await, but when? Read on to learn everything you need to know about season two.

When will season 2 of Fixer Upper: Welcome Home premiere?

It's been a few months since season 1 of the reboot debuted on Discovery+, so it's understandable fans are getting a bit anxious for new episodes. However, it looks like the wait may be a little longer than one might like.

Although season 1 of "Fixer Upper: Welcome Home" premiered on a Discovery+, the TV show was originally supposed to appear exclusively on Magnolia Network, Good Housekeeping said. However, the Discovery+ debut has been delayed due to Covid-19 and production, CheatSheet added. The new reveal of Magnolia Network is currently scheduled for next year, according to House Beautiful.

Season one debuted on Discovery+ as a sort of teaser for the reboot and the upcoming season. Because of the temporary agreement between the Gaines family and Discovery+, the TV show will not release any more episodes on that streaming service. All remaining episodes will live on Magnolia Network, when the streaming service debuts, CheatSheat said. And, since the streaming outlet won't premiere until the early new year, we're looking at summertime for more "Fixer Upper: Welcome Home" episodes.

Who is the cast of Fixer Upper: Welcome Home season 2?

As you can guess, the cast will contain the Gaines family. But as for the rest of the cast? Well, it depends, considering each episode involves a different family looking to renovate their home. And, applying to be on the show isn't quite as simple as we might think it is.

Country Living reported that there are a number of requirements guests have to meet in order to appear on the show. For example, only residents of Waco, Texas (aka the home of the TV couple) can appear on the show. The reasoning? Joanna said: "Our kids are young, so until they're all out of the house and off to college, Waco is where we're going to base our renovation business."

Additionally, guests must be 21 and older, have $50,000 available to pay for the renovation, and be willing to give up creative control over the redecoration (via Good Housekeeping). That said, not everyone is suited to be on "Fixer Upper: Welcome Home." Doesn't mean you can still enjoy the show from the TV screen though.

Not all fans are happy to watch the Fixer Upper reboot

Since the original series was such a hit, you'd think fans would be jumping up for joy when the reboot was announced. However, fans are less than enthusiastic. The reason why? Cost.

As CheatSheet reported, the cost of "Fixer Upper: Welcome Home" upsets fans because the original series was available on cable. Now, they have to subscribe to Discovery+ and eventually Magnolia Network when it premieres. Plenty of fans took their thoughts to social media with one Instagram user even saying, "Sorry. As much as I love a LOT of these people [and] would love to watch their shows, I already pay enough for DirectTv [and] Hulu &[and] I can't see myself paying for another streaming service just to watch them."

That's not to say viewers are not excited for the upcoming show; many are interested to see how "Fixer Upper: Welcome Home" differs from their predecessor. And with the TV series renewed for a second season, it doesn't seem many fans had too much of a problem.

However, only time will tell. Let's hope that the price for Magnolia is of little to no cost.
