The new promo for the upcoming Keeping Up With the Kardashians is here and it’s definitely not short on drama.

‘KUWTK’ will focus on the impact of coronavirus

Since the coronavirus pandemic shut down shooting of season 18 of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, it’s no surprise that the reality show would dedicate some episodes to the way the pandemic impacted them.

“Everybody in the world is talking about coronavirus,” Scott Disick says in the clip. Footage shows that Khloé had a scare as she’s seen getting tested and Kim Kardashian West remarks, “I’m super worried that Khloé is so sick” as footage shows the Good American co-founder coughing in bed.

It’s unclear if Khloé tested positive or not (you have to tune in to find out), but it looks like it was a stressful time for the family.

Are Khloé Kardashian and Tristan Thompson getting back together?

The KUWTK promo also gives a tease of Khloé and Thompson having an honest conversation about their relationship, as she asks him, “Why couldn’t you be that when we were together?”

Fans have so many questions, of course, and with all of the rumors swirling that the couple got back together it’ll be interesting to see how this conversation plays out.

There’s more drama coming on ‘KUWTK’

Of course, there is more family drama in the mix, most notably Disick appearing to address how he went to a Colorado treatment center in April and how someone “leaked” the information. He checked out after a photo of him at the facility leaked online.

“There couldn’t have been a bigger betrayal,” he explains. “She leaked me being there to the press.” He told some of the family members on a Zoom call, “I don’t trust anybody here.”

Fans have theories about the new episodes

The new KUWTK promo naturally had fans curious and there are some theories about how some of the drama teased will play out.

A discussion on Reddit had fans trying to piece together who Disick is talking about. “From the first impression, I thought about some female staff member (from the rehab center), but after rewatch I think it was someone particularly close to him, maybe assistant? His fellow rehab participant?”

As for Khloé’s coronavirus scare, one fan noted, “It would be pretty crazy if she had corona but waited until the episode was released to announce it. During a time when everyone is trying to show how serious this is and that anyone can get it, I don’t see why you would wait until months later to announce that you had it.”

Another Redditor wondered if Khloé wasn’t suffering from migraines. “She started promoting that new migraine medication and in a few recent interviews said that her migraines increase during COVID because of stress and sometimes they make her nauseous,” they explained.

Keeping Up With the Kardashians returns on Thursday, Sept. 17 at 8 p.m. on E!
