The multiple award-winning reality series, which focuses on the personal and professional lives of the Kardashian–Jenner blended family, will end after the finale of season 20, in 2021.
Kim, who is a prominent personality on the cast, took to her Twitter page to share a statement wherein the family stated their resolve to shelve the KUWTK franchise after its last season, set for 2021.
“To our amazing fans, It’s 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,” they wrote.
“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.
“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 KUWTK, 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.”
KUWTK has been criticised since its 2007 premiere, with many frowning at its emphasis on fame; alleging fabrication of some aspects of its storylines, among comments about a lack of intelligence.
