‘KUWTK’: Are the Kardashians Ready For the Show to End?

Keeping Up With the Kardashians has been gracing fans’ televisions since 2007. But 12 years ago, the Kardashians were a very different family. They did not have nearly the level of fame they have today, and their lives were much more drama-free. But through it all, fans have watched everything unfold and have stood by the family no matter what. But after all these years, are the Kardashians ready for the show to end?

Kendall and Kylie Jenner have made fewer appearances in recent years

At one point, Kendall and Kylie Jenner were a huge part of the show. But recently, both women have taken different paths that have caused them to appear fewer times on KUWTK compared to their sisters. Kendall has always been a fan of keeping her life more private than her sisters’, and despite her modeling career, she values her time outside the spotlight.

Kylie’s cosmetics brand has taken off (and has made her the world’s youngest self-made billionaire), so it makes sense as to why she’s focusing more of her time on her business than on the show. Plus, she’s the mother to her toddler daughter, Stormi Webster, who certainly keeps her busy.

Kylie Jenner’s career has become larger than the family’s show.

Kourtney Kardashian is clearly ready for the show to end

Season 17 saw a lot of drama between Kourtney Kardashian and her two sisters, Kim and Khloé Kardashian. Kourtney is a mother of three, and as her kids have grown older, she’s become more focused on being a mom. Plus, Kourtney recently launched her lifestyle website, Poosh, which has occupied a lot of her time. Now, Kourtney has decided she no longer wants to do KUWTK, and it has created a firestorm between her, Kim, and Khloé. Ultimately, Kourtney needs a break. After all, the women have been filming for the past dozen years. 

Khloé Kardashian subtly hinted the show would come to a close soon

Though Khloé doesn’t seem ready to let their reality television days go, when one fan tweeted about the show ending, Khloé hinted that it wouldn’t go on forever. “Sad but everything has to end at some point,” Khloé responded. She included a sad emoji along with the tweet, though she didn’t beat around the bush that the show will eventually come to a close. Right now, we know that there will at least be a season 18, but it’s unclear what will happen to the show after that.

It seems Kim Kardashian West is the only one who wants to continue the show

Kim Kardashian West still seems to enjoy doing KUWTK, so it’s possible that if the show ever did end, she would want her family to have some kind of spinoff. Khloé has enjoyed her time on the show, too, though she seems a little more in touch with the idea of ending KUWTK. Like Kim, Kris Jenner probably wants the show to go on as well, since it’s been a huge money maker for the family. But as the women grow older and their lives become more complex, it might eventually become too difficult to continue filming.
