Kim Kardashian West broke the news just earlier today in an Instagram post. 

“It is with heavy hearts that we’ve made the difficult decision as a family to say goodbye to Keeping Up with the Kardashians,” she wrote. 

“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.”

The 39-year-old reality TV star and KKW Beauty mogul said the final season of Keeping Up with the Kardashians will air early next year. It’s unclear what exactly led to the end of the show but some of the family have been distancing themselves over the years. 

In later seasons, Kylie and Kendall Jenner, now in their twenties with careers of their own, were barely featured. Earlier this year, Kourtney Kardashian, 41, revealed why she left the show and her younger sister Khloé Kardashian, 36, has been allegedly wanting to leave since 2018.

Needless to say, that didn’t stop Koko from sharing her own heartfelt words on the decision.

“I am so grateful and thankful to everyone who has supported us and been there through it all,” Khloé wrote. “I’m too emotional to fully express myself at the moment”—SAME. 

Ofc no one was hit as hard by the decision than the Kardashian family CEO and Momager, Kris Jenner, who shared a similarly worded professional announcement to Kim’s.

“We are so beyond grateful to everyone who has watched and supported our family these past 14 incredible years,” Kris wrote. “We will be forever in debt to everyone who played a role in shaping our careers and changing our lives forever. Thank you for joining us on this crazy ride!!”

As Wired’s Julia Alexander describes it, it’s an “end of an era.”

“The influencer [and] creator culture we have today would not exist without Keeping Up With The Kardashians and The Hills and The Simple Life,” she tweeted. “Like, culture as we know it today does not exist without Keeping Up—for both good and bad.”

We’ll miss you, KUWTK…
