Joanna and Chip Gaines are officially wrapped on “Fixer Upper.” Several weeks after the pair announced the upcoming season of the hit HGTV renovation series would be its last, the stars shared a behind-the-scenes set photo from the series finale taping this week.

“Today was the final reveal... We definitely felt the emotion behind each of those steps leading up to the big canvas,” Joanna wrote of a photo of her and Chip approaching the reveal for their final on-screen project. “We love you Fixer Upper.”

She went on to tease the upcoming season of the series in the caption, stating they have “saved the best season for last.”

Joanna followed up with a video of her and Chip being welcomed by balloons and confetti while pulling up to their office on the last day of filming. “We made it to the finish line!” she captioned the clip. “We love these people @magnolia.”

Joanna’s most recent posts are far from the first time she’s teased the upcoming season of “Fixer Upper,” which returns to HGTV on Nov. 21. Over the past few months, she has posted various photos of bookcase designs, front porch landscapes, offices and more, all of which will be featured in the new episodes.

As previously reported, Chip and Joanna announced the end of “Fixer Upper” in September on their blog, stating their businesses and family need more attention.

“So I think the idea that we get to kind of step back and just get kind of fresh with vision, get some rest but also just hunker down with our kiddos. [This] is something we’re excited about but sad that this chapter in our lives is coming to an end,” the couple wrote at the time.

Soon after their announcement, rumors stated to swirl that Chip and Joanna’s marriage was in trouble. Another report also claimed that the couple left the show due to contractual issues. Magnolia Market director Brock Murphy quickly shut down the speculation, saying, “Chip and Jo’s decision to leave Fixer Upper is truly just based on wanting to catch their breath for a minute” and “is not based on anything else people might read.”

“We wanted to take a step back and focus on the thing that is absolutely the most important things to us in the world which is Jo and I’s relationship,” Chip added of their leave during an appearance with Joanna on “Today” last month. “We’re as healthy as we’ve ever been but I just didn’t want to keeping pushing this envelope to the fullest extent.”
