Chip and Joanna Gaines make heartbreaking announcement for ‘Fixer Upper’ fans

Chip and Joanna Gaines made it official today: Their popular HGTV show “Fixer Upper” will be no more after the upcoming fifth season. There had been whispers of such a move.

To be clear, the couple did not say it was cancelled by the network, but rather a “choice.”

“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 in a statement on their website. “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.”

And the staunchly Christian couple wants to reassure fans this has nothing to do with the rumors floating around lately:

This has been an amazing adventure! We have poured our blood, sweat and tears into this show. We would be foolish to think we can go and go and fire on all cylinders and never stop to pause. Our family is healthy and our marriage has honestly never been stronger. This has nothing to do with a fraudulent skincare line or anything else you’ll inevitably read. This is just us recognizing that we need to catch our breath for a moment. Our plan is to take this time to shore up and strengthen the spots that are weak, rest the places that are tired and give lots of love and attention to both our family and our businesses.

Even though their show is ending, the couple says, “we aren’t done with Waco. We aren’t done renovating homes. We aren’t done designing things to make your home your favorite place on earth. 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 things, we are just getting started.”

Still, they admit that don’w know “what the future holds” but are excited “for whatever is around the bend.”
