Season 20 is set to be the final installment of Keeping Up With the Kardashians in 2021.
The Kardashian-Jenner family and E! made an announcement on 8th September the iconic series Keeping Up With the Kardashians will return for season 19 on Thursday, September 17.
This is scheduled to be followed by the final season (season 20) next year.
The family shared on social media:
It is with heavy hearts that we say goodbye to Keeping Up with the Kardashians. After what will be 14 years, 20 seasons, hundreds of episodes and several spin-off shows, we've decided as a family to end this very special journey.
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.
The statement continued,
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 filming our lives. Our last season will air early next year in 2021. We love you!
The heartfelt announcement was signed by all the members of the Kardashian-Jenner family.
The E! networks shared their own statement,
E! has been the home and extended family to the Kardashian-Jenners for what will be 14 years, featuring the lives of this empowering 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.
Since the KUWTK series premiered on Oct. 14, 2007, there have been 12 spin-off series on E!
After the news made the rounds, Khloe Kardashian took to Instagram to thank the fans. She expressed how grateful and appreciative she was to everyone who supported them throughout the entire journey.
Khloe claimed she was too emotional to express herself at the moment completely. "My sappy post will come soon. Change is hard but also needed at times. I love you all. Thank you for the memories!"
While Kourtney was contemplating the news—"I will gather my thoughts and share them in a bit ..." she expressed on her Instagram Story — Kim wrote a heartfelt message to the "amazing fans."
The reality star admitted how she would be nowhere right now without Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
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.
It's definitely been a remarkable ride. Over the years, fans watched Kim become a mother, introducing daughter North West to the world in 2013. The following year, she married Kanye West, and together, the family kept growing with the arrivals of Saint West, Chicago West, and most recently, Psalm West.
As for her siblings, Kourtney documented her relationship with Scott, who's become a mainstay thanks to his lordly attitude. The pair set an example to the fans, demonstrating the expertise in co-parenting their kids, Mason Disick, Penelope Disick, and Reign Disick.
In the meantime, Khloe remained candid about love and heartbreak, eventually finding her true love in the form of True Thompson, her daughter.
Meanwhile, Kendall shot to international fame with her modeling career as younger sister Kylie opened her billion-dollar cosmetic brand — after becoming a mother to Stormi Webster.
There are many more exciting stories to come when KUWTK returns at 8 p.m. on September 17! And gear yourself for the final, magnificent season hitting the small screens in 2021.
