Bible, the Kardashians have returned. In 2021, after an extremely emotional farewell to their show Keeping Up With The Kardashians, the famous family returned to our screens with a brand-new program on a new network. Terrible Ryan Seacrest.
Yes, the famous Kar-Jenner family got their start on the E! Network in 2007 and built an empire over the course of 20 seasons, but in June 2021, they announced they were ready to depart the world of reality television.
Shortly after announcing their departure, matriarch Kris Jenner clarified that the family was not truly done with reality television; KUWTK was just their last show.
So, here is everything you need to know about The Kardashians, their very unique television show. Indeed, we are no longer “keeping up.”
Where can Australians watch The Kardashians?
The new reality series was filmed exclusively for Hulu, but it has been taken up by another streaming service for international distribution. In Australia, The Kardashians is now available to access on Disney Plus. If you are not already subscribed to Disney Plus, you can subscribe here for $11.99 per month.
When will The Kardashians be broadcast in Australia?
The premiere episode of the first season was released on April 14, 2022. Similar to the original KUWTK, new episodes of each season of The Kardashians will premiere every Thursday.
The premiere episode of The Kardashians on Hulu in the United States broke records, with the streaming service disclosing that it is the most-watched series premiere in its history. And since then, season two of the program has been released, and season three is forthcoming.
In light of the fact that they’ve signed on for another season, it appears that OG admirers are enthusiastic about keeping up.
Why did the family wish to end production of KUWTK?
It is no secret that family feuds have become a central and frequently noxious aspect of the KUWTK narrative. Their battles on-screen were legendary.
According to Kim Kardashian, the unofficial head of the family, this was one of the reasons they wished to end the show. In the new series, there will be a greater emphasis on the numerous enterprises owned by the sisters and, of course, what Momager Kris Jenner is doing.
“It will be a different side,” Kim told The Wall Street Journal in October of 2021. However, I would not say that our silliness will not emerge.
“This is the next chapter,” Kris announced during Disney’s virtual Upfronts presentation in May 2021. “In the new show, you’ll see us evolving as a family; fans want us to be who we are, and they’ve been as emotionally invested in our show as we have been from the very beginning.”
Obviously, the transition to Hulu involved more than “new themes” and a new atmosphere. In an exclusive new cover story for Variety, the prominent family stated, “Money always matters.”
“We give up so much of our personal lives for entertainment,” Khloé told a publication of their purported nine-figure salary. We always have private family conversations, and my sisters and I can be fairly brutal about what we will or will not accept.
“Not all cash is good cash. It must be a good fit, and Hulu was the ideal fit for us,” she continued, adding that everyone in the family would receive an equal share of the profits.
Momager Kris stated, “Well, money is always important. I believe it would be absurd to assert that money no longer matters.”
What can followers of The Kardashians anticipate?
According to the family exposé in Variety, Disney Plus will release two seasons with forty episodes of “premium” reality television with a “documentary style” of filming.
In contrast to the intimate storylines of KUWTK, which some of the women had begun to distance themselves from, many plotlines of The Kardashians will focus on the family’s business endeavors.
But board meetings and Kylie Cosmetics brand strategy are not the only activities. Kourtney Kardashian and her fiance Travis Barker filmed their engagement and family celebrations for the program.
Kim’s new relationship with Pete Davidson also received airtime, with the star revealing to Variety that she discusses on the show how they “met, who reached out to whom, how it happened, and all the details that everyone wants to know.”
She tells the publication, “I’m certainly available for conversation, and I do explain it.”
Kim’s separation from Kanye West was also highlighted.”Being in the public eye and having disagreements publicly is never easy,” Kim told the publication. “However, I believe in handling everything discreetly. I believe in publicly praising and privately criticizing.
“I cannot imagine ever criticizing the father of my children on my television program. That’s not really my thing, and I don’t believe that would ever make me feel good. I’m always mindful of what the children will see.
The relationship problems between Khloé and Tristan Thompson, who recently confirmed he “fathered a child” with another woman, were also prevalent in the first two seasons of the show.
Khloé told Variety, “I wish I never had to talk about that because it’s not a fun topic to discuss.”However, it is part of my life’s journey, so we will see it on the program.”
While the first two seasons were filled with drama, it appears that season three will be no different when it premieres on May 25.
Khloe stated in the first teaser trailer, “I wish I could tell you that this season will be mild, relaxing, and serene, but I can’t.”
Although the official first look at the season did not disclose much, we did see the return of Scott Disick, who stated, in a very Scott-like manner, “I’ve never seen so much drama.”
