Chip Gaines just dropped some big news while appearing alongside Joanna on "The Tonight Show." On Friday night the father-of-five told "Tonight" host Jimmy Fallon he and Joanna are getting ready to return to television now that baby Crew is four months old. Yes, Chip + Jo are returning to television! 🙌 "We are coming back to television, you're gonna get to see the kids grow up," Gaines told Fallon (joking that he was really only telling his own mom through the TV, so not breaking his non-disclosure agreement). "We're excited to be back."
After Fallon aired Jo took to Twitter to do maybe a little damage control. She retweeted a note from the Magnolia account which explained that her husband "got a little excited & spilled the beans on a potential project that we're working on. This isn't a done deal quite yet but we are all really excited about what we've got in mind: our own cable network!"
Shortly after Jo retweeted the official word from Magnolia, Discovery Inc issued a tweet confirming that the company is in talks with Chip + Jo.

This isn't the first time in recent days Chip Gaines has hinted at a return to TV. "We never rule anything out," he previously told People (Joanna graced the cover of the magazine earlier this month). "The show was amazing and we are so thankful for it, but it's also a whirlwind where, if you are not careful, it will flat run you over," Chip explained. "You can't believe how out of gas you are."
