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 time from him that he needed to be giving to the couple’s businesses, relationship and family.
