The series will return for season 19 on Thursday, Sept. 17 followed by one last season to be aired in 2021.
Kim Kardashian shocked fans by announcing that her family’s iconic reality show is ending after 14 years on air.
Keeping Up with the Kardashians, which helped make Kim and her siblings Kourtney, Khloe, Kylie, and Kendall household names and launched their careers in the fashion and beauty business, will air its last season early next year.
There were no reasons for the decision but E! said in a statement that it respects ‘the family’s decision to live their lives without our cameras.’ In recent years numerous siblings, most recently Kourtney, have been reluctant to film the show. Kim has also endured a turbulent year with her husband Kanye West’s mental health battle and controversial presidential run putting unprecedented strain on her marriage.
‘After what will be 14 years, 20 seasons, hundreds of episodes and numerous spin-off shows, we are beyond grateful to all of you who’ve watched us for all of these years – through the good times, the bad times, the happiness, the tears, and the many relationships and children.
‘We’ll forever cherish the wonderful memories and countless people we’ve met along the way. Thank you to the thousands of individuals and businesses that have been a part of this experience,’ she wrote.
‘While it has been an absolute privilege and we will miss them wholeheartedly, we respect the family’s decision to live their lives without our cameras. It is not our final goodbye yet, we are excited to have the new season of Keeping Up with the Kardashians launching on September 17 with the final season airing in 2021.
Who are you going to miss?
