Last Updated: March 22, 2017 @ 3:05 PM

HGTV is spinning off its top-rated series, “Fixer Upper,” the company said Wednesday during its upfront advertising event. Sorry, Chip — there’s nothing to demo on this one.

“‘Fixer Upper: Behind the Design’ is the perfect series for viewers who want to know how Joanna Gaines creates her signature home designs and how it all comes together so perfectly — shiplap and all — in each inspiring episode of ‘Fixer Upper,'” the popular cable channel described its upcoming show.

As previously announced, HGTV is also spinning off “Flip or Flop” into five — yes, five — new series. And there are more spinoffs where those all come from — check out the full slate of new spring and summer series below. All descriptions are in the Scripps Networks’ crown jewel’s own words.

“House Hunters Family”
Premieres in July
In “House Hunters Family,” parents and their kids tour three properties and try to agree on the home they all love the best.
