'Fixer Upper' to End After 5th Season
The HGTV home renovation series Fixer Upper will be ending after its fifth season. The husband and wife duo Chip and Joanna Gaines, who star on HGTV’s popular series, announced the news on the Magnolia Market website in a post titled “Our Last Season” that included a video and a statement.
“It is with both sadness and expectation that we share the news that season 5 of Fixer Upper will be our last,” wrote the couple. “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.”
Buzzfeed reports that the popular series averages over 3.7 million viewers for first-run episodes. Fans of the show seek inspiration for their homes, especially kitchen design ideas from Joanna Gaines who viewers know favors an open kitchen concept, shiplap, and farmhouse sinks above all else.
The couple, who have partnerships with Target and Bed Bath & Beyond, remained adamant that although the show is coming to a close, they are not done working on homes in Texas.
“Though our Fixer Upper chapter is coming to a close, we aren’t done with Waco. We aren’t done renovating homes,” they wrote. “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.”
We look forward to seeing more of what Chip and Joanna will do in the future. Until then, get all your kitchen design inspo from America’s 15 most beautiful home kitchens.
