Chip and Joanna posted to their blog that they are very proud of their final season, and that they think it is the perfect ending to what they call their "amazing journey." The couple goes on to say that there will be more for fans and that they aren't finished, but are just getting started. What that means exactly will undoubtedly be explained in more detail at a later date.

They reassured fans that their family is healthy and their marriage is strong, but they have come to realize that it's time to give more love and attention to their family and to their many successful businesses.

Although the decision obviously wasn't an easy one to make for Chip and Joanna, it is understandable that they want to devote more time to what they have already created so far.

Chip and Joanna state that they aren't finished with Waco and aren't finished with home renovation and design

As a team, Chip and Joanna create some of the most visually stunning homes that anyone would be proud to own. Joanna's unique sense of style and her creative genius have produced some impressive design elements and she has her own lines of furniture, rugs, paint, wallpaper, etc. In October of 2016, they released their first book titled "Magnolia Story" which became a bestseller and recently, Chip released a book titled "Capital Gaines: Smart Things I Learned Doing Stupid Stuff" which is not a surprising title given the fact that Chip has a huge sense of humor and is known for his fun-loving attitude and crazy antics.

Recently it was announced that Target was teaming up exclusively with the couple, the Hearth & Hand with Magnolia brand of home goods will be available at all Target locations and online beginning on November 5, 2017.

Target's press release states this is the Gaines' first collaboration with a retailer and will be a multi-year partnership.

Chip and Joanna may be taking a breather, but they also seem to be regrouping so they can prepare for future endeavors

Although the Gaines family may no longer be on "Fixer Upper" after the final season airs, that doesn't mean fans have heard the last of them.

Chip and Joanna tease on their blog that this isn't the end by any means, they promise more new stuff is coming and that they will stay in touch. Whatever they have planned for the future will likely benefit their large fan base.
