“Fixer Upper” stars Chip Gaines and Joanna Gaines have announced that the HGTV show will end after its upcoming fifth season.
“It is with both sadness and expectation that we share the news that season 5 of ‘Fixer Upper’ will be our last,” the couple wrote on their blog. “While we are confident that this is the right choice for us, it has for sure not been an easy one to come to terms with. Our family has grown up alongside yours, and we have felt you rooting us on from the other side of the screen. How bittersweet to say goodbye to the very thing that introduced us all in the first place.”
The fifth and final season will begin in November, and the Gaines say it’s the “perfect finale to this amazing journey we’ve been on.”
“Though our ‘Fixer Upper’ chapter is coming to a close, we aren’t done with Waco,” the couple added. “We aren’t done renovating homes. We aren’t done designing things to make your home your favorite place on earth,” they wrote. “We aren’t done working towards restoration in all things or helping out those who could use a hand. In fact, in all of these of things, we are just getting started. Who knows what the future holds, but we’re excited for whatever is around the bend and in the meantime, we will definitely be staying in touch.”
The reality TV series focuses on the duo who show a couple three potential homes for purchase in central Texas, each one of them requiring a certain amount of renovations. Joanna designs the home, while Chip is the lead contractor.
In March, it was announced that the duo would be getting a “Fixer Upper” spinoff show “Behind the Design.”
