Joanna and Chip Gaines, the stars of the series, made the announcement Tuesday on the website of their home-design business, Magnolia. Rumors about the impending end of the show have been circulating for several months.

“It is with both sadness and expectation that we share the news that Season 5 of ‘Fixer Upper’ will be our last,” the couple writes. “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. …

“We will forever be thankful for HGTV and this opportunity of a lifetime. We are also thankful to our production company, High Noon Entertainment, and our amazing producers and crew on the ground here in Waco.”

“Fixer Upper” is far and away HGTV’s top-rated show. Season 4, which concluded in March, averaged 3.19 million same-day viewers along with a 0.7 rating in adults 18-49 and was a regular entry in the weekly top 25 during its run. Reruns and marathons of the show have filled countless hours on the channel.

It also made stars of the Gaineses and helped them launch a home-improvement and design empire that includes a retail complex in their hometown of Waco, Texas, a magazine (also called Magnolia) and branded products ranging from paint to purses.

The fifth and final season of “Fixer Upper” will premiere in November.
