Joanna Gaines is getting her own half-hour show called Fixer Upper: Behind the Design.

New adventure: Joanna revealed that she and Chip will open a restaurant in 2017.

"The tremendous, consistent ratings success of the original "Flip or Flop" with Tarek and Christina El Moussa inspired us to take a new look at house flipping programming", HGTV executive Allison Page said in a release.

"Hey ya'll! Chip and Joanna Gaines here in New York City!" We want more. We need more.

"Behind the Design" will focus on each project with insight into the design elements and decisions, Gaines said.

The video showed Joanna and her husband in a vehicle, telling fans the inspiration behind the new project.

"We get a lot of questions about the designs and how we get from point A to point Z", Joanna begins to say in the Instagram video before Chip makes a goofy face in the background.

'Ooh, I like the sound of that, ' her husband, 42, chipped in enthusiastically.

A sneak peak of the new show will air immediately following the final episode of season four of "Fixer Upper" which airs Tuesday, March 28th.

Chip also contributes to the announcement by quipping "it's unbelievable how fast these seasons go", and generally looking like a smiling Dennis Quaid.

"The reason we've seen consistent success is because we have the ability to create on-air and online content that surpasses expectations for audience delivery in an ever-changing environment", HGTV, DIY Network, Food Network, Cooking Channel, Travel Channel and Great American Country general manager, USA programming, Allison Page said.
