'Fixer Upper' stars Joanna and Chip Gaines talk show's endOctober 11, 2017 11:33pm

NEW YORK (AP) — The couple behind HGTV's "Fixer Upper" is opening up about the reasons for ending the show after its fifth season, which premieres next month.

In an interview with People magazine, Chip and Joanna Gaines cite a grueling 11-month production schedule as a reason for the show's end. Chip Gaines says the show was demanding from him time that he needed to be giving to the couple's businesses, relationship and family.

Joanna Gaines isn't ruling out the possibility of a return to TV, saying "you just never know."

The Gaineses also addressed rumors of marital problems. They say they have a solid marriage that he describes as in "a really good place."

"Fixer Upper" launched in 2013 and follows the two as they redo houses near their Texas home.
