14 years, 20 seasons, hundreds of episodes
“After what will be 14 years, 20 seasons, hundreds of episodes, several spinoff shows, we are more than grateful to all of you who have watched us for all these years, through the good days, the bad, the joy, the tears, many relationships and children “, added the daughter of Armenian-born lawyer Robert Kardashian, who defended OJ Simpson.
Final season in 2021
“Our last season will be broadcast early next year, in 2021”, said the businesswoman and wife of Kanye West. “Without ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians, I wouldn’t be where I am today”, she said again. “This show made us who we are and I will be eternally grateful to everyone who has played a role in building our careers and forever changing our lives.”
The statement was also released by her mother, Kris Jenner, a knowledgeable manager of the family’s affairs. It is signed by the three Kardashian sisters – Kourtney, Kim, Khloe – their mother, their brother Rob, their half-sisters Kendall and Kylie Jenner as well as Scott Disick, the father of Kourtney’s three children.
No explanation provided
No explanation was provided for this decision. The announcement comes as rap star Kanye West, who has four children with Kim Kardashian, has declared himself a candidate for the White House.
He has also recently made cryptic and disjointed, even incoherent, remarks, prompting his wife to bring up her bipolar disorder again and ask “compassion and empathy”. The reality show has made family members regular at celebrity magazines; a reputation that has allowed them to earn millions of dollars by launching into fields such as makeup, perfume or modeling.
