It's official: Chip and Joanna are moving on from the HGTV show that started it all.
All good things must come to an end, but why does it have to be our favorite home decorating show?
It's the end of an era for fans of HGTV's Fixer Upper. In an announcement made on Joanna's blog, the power couple shared their parting words with viewers as they revealed that season five, which premieres in November, will be their last.
Throughout their time on the show, the Gaines have become a household name, first captivating the country as they renovated homes around their hometown of Waco, Texas. Since season one premiered in May 2013, Chip and Joanna have built a farmhouse-style empire, collaborating with various brands to create a paint line, a Target product line, the Magnolia Market, and their very own publication, Magnolia Journal.
It is because of all these endeavors that they have decided to call the fifth season their last. Offering their many fans an explanation, Chip and Joanna said they need some time to focus on their other business ventures and, most importantly, their family.
"We would be foolish to think we can go and go and fire on all cylinders and never stop to pause," the couple said on Joanna's blog.
They went on to reassure that their marriage is stronger than ever and that fans have no need to worry. They also made it clear that they are not moving from Waco, the town where it all started. They plan to continue doing much of what they already do, just without the cameras.
We're sad to see Chip and Joanna leave our screens. But, as they often have in the past, we're sure Magnolia will continue finding its way into our homes and lives.
