The well-loved and controversial reality show Keeping Up With The Kardashians will say goodbye in 2021
The show that focused on the personal and professional lives of the Kardashian–Jenner blended family will air their 20th and final season next year.
TV host Ryan Seacrest was the executive producer of the show when it first aired on E! on October 14, 2007. It eventually became one of the longest-running reality television series in the country.
Season 19 of Keeping Up With the Kardashians will premiere on E! on Thursday, September 17.
Kim Kardashian-West announced the end of the show next year via Instagram last September 8.
“To our amazing fans – 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 went on to thank their producer Ryan Seacrest, the Bunim/Murray production team and E! for the many years of documenting their lives on TV.
“Our last season will air early next year in 2021. Without Keeping Up With the Kardashians, I wouldn’t be where I am today.
“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.”
The show also produced 12 spinoffs at E!: Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami, Kourtney and Kim Take New York, Kourtney and Kim Take Miami, Kourtney and Khloe Take the Hamptons, Khloe and Lamar, Sex with Brody, I Am Cait, DASH Dolls, Life of Kylie, Rob & Chyna, Revenge Body with Khloe Kardashian, and Flip It Like Disick.
According to E!, it was a privilege to have known and worked with the Kardashian-Jenner family.
“Along with all of you, we have enjoyed following the intimate moments the family so bravely shared by letting us into their daily lives. 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.
“We thank the entire extended family and our production partners, Bunim Murray and Ryan Seacrest Productions for embarking on this global phenomenon together.”
