In a bit of sad news, Chip and Joanna Gaines, recently announced that the upcoming fifth season of HGTV's Fixer Upper will be their last. It seems that they are so busy in other venues that the show is the one thing they are backing out on.

They're planning a new restaurant in Waco, Texas,
They have book projects,
They have new partnerships with Target, Bed Bath & Beyond and other things.

Joanna said that,

"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"

"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 business."

Man, what a serious bummer. I have really enjoyed this show to the point that I felt comfortable with the series. I loved the cute banter, the family time/qualities they demonstrated, and the usual challenges that came with finding a house and rebuilding it for their ever-doubtful clients.

I don't think we'll ever find that kind of chemistry in a television duo again, on a show like this.

I get being too busy and totally understand. Well, thanks Chip and Joanna for the last four fun seasons and hopefully, a fun fifth and final season!
