Our last season

September 26, 2017

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. 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.

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.

We are really, really proud of season 5. We laid it all on the field and didn’t hold anything back. We think it’s the perfect finale to this amazing journey we’ve been on. Season 5 begins in November and Behind the Design will follow shortly after. There’s so much good, new stuff coming your way!

Though our Fixer Upper chapter is coming to a close, we aren’t done with Waco. We aren’t done renovating homes. 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.

Who knows what the future holds, but we’re excited for whatever is around the bend and in the meantime, we will definitely be staying in touch.

We will forever be thankful for HGTV and this opportunity of a lifetime. We are also thankful to our production company, Highnoon Entertainment and our amazing producers and crew on the ground here in Waco. We are grateful for them and for you. Thank you for sharing life with us and for the continued support. Thank you for having our backs! Thank you for caring about these homes and these families and the things that we care so much about.

Really, from the bottom of our hearts, thank you.

Chip and Jo

We welcome and encourage comments from all readers. We want to initiate conversations between people who may think differently from one another. We feel called to be bridge builders, to fight for a world that knows how to lovingly disagree. And that starts when we think, speak and act from a position of love in all things. We don’t all have to agree with each other, but disagreement is not the same thing as hate. And while we will never censor comments based on your personal, political or religious beliefs, we do reserve the right to moderate or delete any comments containing foul or abusive language, as well as those perceived to be contentious, libelous or combative.

So think freely, but please speak respectfully. These are the kind of conversations that we want to be a part of.

    I am so saddened to hear about this. I so enjoyed the extraordinary work both of you did. And Jo's attention to detail never ceased to amaze me. And Chip is so comical while renovating and shopping at the antique stores with Jo. I also laughed so hard at the end of the cute young couple with the original "moon" door, Chip asked his son, while playing baseball, if he ever wished he could be as handsome as he is. And the son answered "No, cause it's already true." The smirk on Chips face and the cute smile on his son's face...priceless! I wish you love, peace and happiness!

    For me, a 12 year old, your show has led me to what I want to be in life. I've watched every episode at least 5 times, and in each one you inspire me more. I want to be exactly like you, and I hope we will see you sometime soon ! I want to get to come to silos so bad that it is my only Christmas Presnt on my list. Anyway, I wanted to thank you so much, you mean so much to others like me. Your the best ! xoxo, Claire
