Martha Stewart has been keeping herself busy during these past few months at home. Naturally, she’s been cooking up a storm and tending to her gardens, plus enjoying Martha-ritas when the occasion calls for it.

But outside of her usual day-to-day, Martha also filmed an all-new TV show for HGTV! That’s right, the Emmy® Award-winning television personality, trusted lifestyle expert and The New York Times bestselling author of more than 96 titles (!!!), is ready to bring her gardening and culinary star power directly to HGTV *and* Food Network this year. Martha Knows Best, the new HGTV series, is tentatively scheduled to air in 2020 and will feature Martha as she completes outdoor projects on the to-do list for her Bedford farm. Over on Food Network, planning is underway for Martha to return to the Chopped judges’ table as well as headline a holiday-themed series.

“I am thrilled to be partnering with HGTV on Martha Knows Best and sharing everything I have been working on at my home during quarantine,” said Martha Stewart. “The show focuses on many aspects of everyday living and home keeping with the goal to teach and inspire viewers to incorporate what works for them into their own homes.”

Martha hinted at the upcoming show yesterday on Instagram when she shared a photo of her TV-ready makeup:
