In a blog post on their website, the couple said they are making the announcement with "sadness."

"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," they said. "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."

The couple said they are ending the show because they "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," they said.

The couple also insisted nothing more dramatic was causing the show's demise.

"Our family is healthy and our marriage has honestly never been stronger," they said. "This has nothing to do with a fraudulent skincare line or anything else you’ll inevitably read."

Obviously fans are NOT OK.

Some people didn't want to go on.

The world should have ended the 23rd because then we wouldn’t have to hear that this is the last season of Fixer Upper 😭😭
