Kim Kardashian shocked fans today when she announced “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” is coming to an end!
She confirmed the news on Instagram, writing, “It is with heavy hearts that we’ve made the difficult decision as a family to say goodbye to ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians’… 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.”
Kim added a heartfelt thank you to fans, executive producer Ryan Seacrest, and many others. She noted, “Our last season will air early next year in 2021.”
“Without ‘Keeping Up with The Kardashians,’ I wouldn’t be where I am today,” Kardashian explained. “I am so incredibly grateful to everyone who has watched and supported me and my family these past 14 incredible years. This show made us who we are and I will be forever in debt to everyone who played a role in shaping our careers and changing our lives forever.”
“KUWTK” launched in 2007 and followed the family — including Kim, her sisters Kourtney, Khloé, Kendall and Kylie, brother Rob and mom Kris Jenner — through many ups and downs.
Many of the family members posted Kim's message. Khloé also shared the news too, writing on Instagram, "I am so grateful and thankful to everyone who has supported us and been there through it all. I’m too emotional to fully express myself at the moment. My sappy post will come soon. Change is hard but also needed at times❤️💔❤️💔 I love you all. Thank you for the memories!"
Kourtney wasn't ready to talk about it yet. She shared Kim's post on Instagram Stories, and wrote, "I will gather my thoughts and share them in a bit."
