The debut of Oprah Winfrey’s OWN cable network on Jan. 1 marked the end of the road for Discovery Health, with OWN taking over its slot. But now word has surfaced that Discovery Health has new life, according to Deadline.com.

Beginning Feb. 1, FitTV will become Discovery Fit & Health, representing a joint effort by the two networks, the article reports.

Shows from both nets, including the trademark morning workout shows "Bodies in Motion" and "Namaste Yoga" from FitTV, along with "Dr. G: Medical Examiner," "Untold Stories of the ER" and the rest of the core lineup from Discovery Health, will fill out the network’s new schedule.
