Keeping Up with the Kardashians has been setting trends in pop culture for over the last decade. Therefore, their large fan base was shocked by the announcement that the reality show would be coming to an end.
While some people may be relieved to have the Kardashian family finally going off the air, others are curious about what happens next for the family. With many of them having other things going for them besides being on the hit series, their success is sure to continue to grow.
We haven’t heard the last from Kardashians! However, one sister has the most to lose with Keeping Up With the Kardashians ending.
Fans will no longer be ‘KUWTK’
With a joint announcement from the Kardashian-Jenner family, fans found out that KUWTK will be ending soon.
Kim Kardashian West shared in a recent Instagram post addressed to their 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.”
The new season will premiere on September 17, 2020, and the final season will air in 2021. The official statement of their departure provided to CNN by E! was signed by matriarch Kris Jenner, Kourtney Kardashian, Kim Kardashian West, Khloe Kardashian, Rob Kardashian, Kendall Jenner, Kylie Jenner, and Scott Disick.
Since KUWTK’s premiere on E! in 2007, there have been many spinoff shows that kept fans up-to-date on the Kardashian’s drama-filled journey.
The Kardashians’ successful business ventures
From beauty and fashion lines to mobile apps, the Kardashians have more going for them than the hit long-running TV series.
Kim Kardashian West has earned the most success with several business ventures over the years from, law to SKIMS to beauty products.
Kylie Jenner has her Kylie Cosmetics beauty empire. Kendall Jenner is dabbling in modeling with Forbes naming her one of the highest-paid models.
Kourtney Kardashian has expressed for years not wanting to be part of filming the show. This is why many fans believe that the family decided to end the show since she announced that she would not be on the new season premiering on September 17th.
However, Khloé Kardashian could lose the most with the show ending.
Why Khloe has the most to lose
Kardashian matriarch Kris Jenner recently divulged on On Air With Ryan Seacrest that Khloé Kardashian was taking the news the hardest. She said: “We had to tell the crew yesterday, so we were all crying. But I think Khloé…is probably the one who is taking it the hardest and really hasn’t stopped crying since we announced. She’s been so sweet and just emotional about it.”
Her devastation could have a thing or two to do with what she’s about to lose. While Khloé Kardashian has her Good American Jean line, it does not compare to her success from the show. Koko has been on the show since the beginning despite being against doing the show when it was first discussed, according to a 2016 Harper’s Bazaar interview.
The show would not have been the same without Khloé Kardashian’s comic relief, outrageous antics, and clever remarks. However, her reservations about the show still hold, as she believes that certain scenes were too personal and wished they were kept private.
So you think that she would be looking forward to the break from the cameras following her around. However, the show has contributed majorly to Khloé Kardashian’s income, with an Intouch report stating she makes $500,000 per episode. Starring in several previous spin-offs, could another one be in the future for Koko after the finale of Keeping Up with the Kardashians?
