‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’ Is Finally Ending After 14 Years

It’s the end of a reality TV era! After an insane 14 years and 20 seasons, Keeping Up with the Kardashians is finally coming to an end next year. The news was announced by Kim Kardashian herself on Instagram on Tuesday, September 8, explaining that the final episodes would air in early 2021. While many aren’t surprised that TV’s First Family is saying goodbye, most fans are devastated that it’s over.

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. Thank you to the thousands of individuals and businesses that have been a part of this experience and, most importantly, a very special thank you to Ryan Seacrest for believing in us, E! for being our partner, and our production team at Bunim/Murray, who’ve spent countless hours documenting our lives. 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. With Love and Gratitude, Kim

The Kardashians announced their decision with “heavy hearts.” “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,” Kim (or her PR person, more likely) wrote. “We’ll forever cherish the wonderful memories and countless people we’ve met along the way.”

Kim recognized the importance of KUWTK on her career. While one could argue that it was her tape with Ray J that catapulted the family into fame and got them Keeping Up with the Kardashians in the first place, the show itself made them a household name and the show ending is making her reflect on it. “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” she wrote. “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.”

It was time for them to live without cameras. While I’m sure E! was disappointed to lose one of their biggest cash cows, officially speaking they totally get it. “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,” a spokesperson said according to Variety. It was time!

It seems like the right time. Not only is it difficult to film with social distancing in place, the Kardashians have literally done nothing in their lives without it being documented on the show or social media for nearly 15 years. While I wonder how they’ll fare once no one is there to validate their every move and as much as I enjoyed watching the show, it seems like this is a good decision for everyone involved.
