Chip and Joanna Gaines Return to TV for First Time Since End of Fixer Upper — Get a Sneak Peek of Their 4-Hour Special

Chip and Joanna Gaines are coming back to TV this Sunday — and PEOPLE has a first look at their four-hour special!

The Fixer Upper alums are preparing to launch their own TV channel, Magnolia Network, and giving fans a serious sneak peek of what to expect in “Magnolia Presents: A Look Back & A Look Ahead,” airing April 26 at 5 p.m. The preview marks the first time the couple have returned to TV since saying farewell to their beloved show in 2018.

In addition to sampling a slate of new original series — they’ve announced 10 so far — the couple will share a personal look at what they, their five kids — Drake, 15, Ella Rose, 13, Duke, 11, Emmie Kay, 10, and Crew, 1 — and countless animals have been up to on their 40-acre Waco farm since exiting the small screen.

The special promises never-before-seen footage, untold stories from the set of Fixer Upper, and candid commentary from Chip and Jo.

In the exclusive clip above, the Gaineses can be seen tending to some very furry cows, digging into design projects and meeting up with familiar faces, like Fixer Upper woodworker Clint Harp, who is back to creating one-of-a-kind furniture pieces for Joanna.

The channel was intended to launch on October 4, but that date has been pushed back in response to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. No new date has been announced.

“Right now, it’s important that we all continue to look out for one another by upholding the guidelines set forth by the experts, leaders and front-line heroes working tirelessly to get us all through this difficult time,” Chip and Joanna said in a statement. “With this as our top priority, we’ve decided to delay Magnolia Network’s launch until we can safely resume production. We have an incredible team behind us and we look forward to the days ahead when we can get back to work, telling good stories that encourage, motivate and inspire hope. In the meantime, we are hosting this special preview where we’ll give you a peek into what we’ve been working on and more of what’s to come for this network we’re building!”

“Magnolia Presents: A Look Back & A Look Ahead” airs Sunday, April 26 on DIY Network.
