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 on 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.

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!"

20 must-read health books
The Health section of your local bookstore or online book retailer looks different than it did a couple of decades ago, when titles like Food-Free at Last: How I Learned to Eat Air or The South Beach Diet Supercharged were popular picks. Still today, authors—including would-be physicians, B-list celebs and underqualified fitness experts—dole out “health advice,” trying to convince readers that running themselves ragged with dieting and strenuous exercise will make them thinner, prettier, and happier. In fact, it has had an adverse effect, especially on women. The cruel dieting culture, incessant calorie counting, and little to no representation of health experts from diverse communities, along with the unrealistic standards set by the beauty and fashion industries, have led to eating disorders and severe mental health issues. Today, coupled with wellness, the topics covered in health and well-being books focus more on making healthy choices daily, keeping active, practising self-care, and being mindful of our mental health. Thanks to the body positivity movement, and some notable influencers in this space, we know that healthy bodies come in all shapes and sizes. This is also a time when we are hearing from more underrepresented voices in this space, making health advice and wellness tips more inclusive and relevant for all. Start the new year off with motivation, stories, and advice on how to live a healthier, happier life that works for you. Get moving by adding these 20 must-read health books to your cart.
