After five seasons, Chip and Joanna Gaines have decided to end HGTV mainstay “Fixer Upper.” The half-hour series, which debuted on May 23, 2013, followed the couple as they renovated homes in Waco, Texas. The now final season will begin in November.
“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 couple wrote in a blog post on their official site. “Our family has grown up alongside yours, and we have felt you rooting us on from the other side of the screen.
