New York [For Immediate Release - November 3, 2015] Smash hit series Fixer Upper, starring Chip and Joanna Gaines, will return for a third season on HGTV on Tuesday, December 1, at 9 p.m. ET/PT. Inspiring social media shout outs from Taylor Swift, Ryan Reynolds and Scott Foley, Fixer Upper attracted an impressive 24.9 million viewers in season two.

The fresh episodes will showcase the Gaines as they help home seekers buy fixer-uppers and transform them into dream homes.
