How Is Hulu’s ‘The Kardashians’ Different From ‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians’?
In 2021, the Kardashian-Jenners wrapped up their long-running series, Keeping Up With the Kardashians, on E!. However, it didn’t take long before the family started filming a new show with Hulu called The Kardashians.
Some fans might be wondering about the differences between the two shows. Read on below to see what we know so far about The Kardashians.
The Kardashian-Jenners have been teasing their new Hulu show
While Hulu has not released an official air date for The Kardashians yet, the streaming service has shared some teasers for the series.
For example, on New Year’s Eve, Hulu released the first teaser, called “The Countdown Begins.” In the video, several members of the Kardashian-Jenner clan wished fans a happy new year and shared that the countdown would begin for the upcoming show.
Recently, another teaser came out. This one highlights the family’s “glamour,” “power,” and “fame.” There is also a short clip of Kendall Jenner telling fans, “You have no idea what’s coming.”
How is ‘The Kardashians’ different from ‘KUWTK’?
Until The Kardashians officially premieres, it will be hard to fully know all of the ways in which the show is different from KUWTK. Nonetheless, there have been a few hints from sources as well as the Kardashian-Jenners themselves.
According to Us Weekly, a source shared in October 2021 that the Hulu show “is going to have the entire family be part of it, but Kim, Khloé [Kardashian], Kourtney [Kardashian] and Kris [Jenner] are going to be on it the most.”
The insider also alleged that fans will get to see more of Kim’s journey as an aspiring lawyer, which means The Kardashians could be “somewhat political.” Additionally, the Hulu show will allow the Kardashian-Jenners more control, and it will “air sooner” after filming.
The latter is something Kim also said during an interview with Ellen DeGeneres in September 2021. She shared, “We are gonna start filming probably in the fall, and we’re going to have a quicker turnaround, so we hope to air in the fall as well.”
Of course, The Kardashians did not end up airing in the fall, but it might be coming to Hulu very soon.
Fans try to predict which storylines will be shown on ‘The Kardashians’
The Kardashian-Jenners often used KUWTK and its spinoffs to give viewers their perspectives on scandals and headlines in the media. As such, some fans have been trying to predict which storylines will make it to the Hulu show.
According to a discussion on Reddit, some fans believe The Kardashians will follow Kourtney and Travis Barker’s relationship, Khloé and Tristan Thompson’s drama-filled, on-and-off relationship, and Kylie Jenner’s second pregnancy.
Some people also predict the show might delve into how Kylie and Travis Scott handled the Astroworld tragedy, but others doubt the Kardashian-Jenners will want to touch this topic as it could bring on more controversies.
