HGTV’s ‘Fixer Upper’ to End After Five Seasons

After five seasons, “Fixer Upper” will be ending on HGTV, the show’s hosts Chip and Joanna Gaines announced on their home-design website, Magnolia.

“It is with both sadness and expectation that we share the news that season 5 of ‘Fixer Upper’ will be our last. 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,” the Gaines’ wrote, calling the good-bye “bittersweet.”

“Fixer Upper” last aired in the spring of 2017, with its fourth season marking the design cabler’s highest rated show, averaging more than 3 million same-day viewers of new episodes and consistently appearing in the top 25. The show follows the married couple renovating homes in the central Texas area, with Joanna taking the lead on design and Chip focusing on the construction and contracting.

While the Gaines said they would “forever be thankful for HGTV and this opportunity of a lifetime,” the network also echoed the sentiment.

In a statement sent to Variety, HGTV said: “We’ve all been on an incredible journey with Chip and Joanna for five years. It takes a huge amount of time and creative energy to make a phenomenal series like ‘Fixer Upper.’ We understand their decision to spend more time with their family. Like all of their fans, we want only the best for them and they know they will always have a home at HGTV. Fans can expect that the upcoming season of ‘Fixer Upper’ will be the best season ever and we can’t wait for it to hit the air later this year.”

The fifth season of “Fixer Upper” is set to premiere on HGTV in Nov. 2017. The Gaines’ call it the “perfect finale” to the “amazing journey” they’ve been on. They also said more of “Behind the Design” will follow.
