A major change is coming to TLC's long-running series Little People, Big World.

Zach and Tori Roloff revealed on their Raising Heights podcast Thursday that they will be leaving the reality show after 25 seasons. "We are not coming back to Little People, Big World. Like, we are done," Tori, 31, began. "That part of our lives, that chapter, has closed."

Sharing his wife's sentiment, Zack, 33, said in response, "I think the chapter has closed regardless of us being asked back or not. We've made it pretty clear we're done with that chapter for multiple reasons, the reasons we will get into here."

"But because we've made that pretty clear, we also haven't they haven't asked us back, technically," he continued. "This last cycle was rough, between the family, the farm deal and we are done with it."

Tori also indicated that it's "hard to put everything into a project that you no longer believe in," noting that "this last season for Little People, Big World, that kind of happened."

"It was no longer a project that we really believed in and so the last year was hard," she added. "It was hard to show up every day for it."

Agreeing that filming the currently airing 25th season was "tough," Zach also expressed how "unfortunate" their departure is because they "had such a run there."

Little People, Big World premiered on TLC in March 2006. The series follows the daily lives of the Oregon-based Roloff family. Much of the show has focused on family heads — and now exes — Matt and Amy as well as their son Zach, all of whom have dwarfism. Season 25 premiered on Tuesday.

Zach and Tori — who first joined the series in season 10, later marrying her now-husband in 2015 — noted on their podcast that there are "a lot of reasons" for their exit. But Tori indicated that their three kids — daughter Lilah Ray, 4, and sons Jackson Kyle, 6, and Josiah Luke, 21 months — were "a really large portion of our reasoning for maybe not doing the show anymore."

Addressing their departure from the show further, the couple jointly said on Instagram that "there were moments in reality tv that we loved and moments that we didn’t, but overall we're grateful to our crew and our producer, and we're excited for our next chapter!"
