Chip and Joanna Gaines announcing that their HGTV show “Fixer Upper” will end after its 5th season. The couple posted the following on their Blog…

“This has been an amazing adventure! 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. Our family is healthy and our marriage has honestly never been stronger. This has nothing to do with a fraudulent skincare line or anything else you’ll inevitably read. 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 businesses.”

Season 5 of “Fixer Upper” will premiere on Nov. 28. https://goo.gl/qEsCf7
