This month, fans of Keeping up with the Kardashians found out that season 20 will be the last season of the longstanding reality show. Now, Kris Jenner has weighed in on the family’s decision to end the series.
Kim Kardashian was the first to break the news on Instagram as she thanked her fans for the support over the last 14 years. Soon, the rest of the family also shared their statements about the show’s final season online.
Following the announcement, Jenner appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show to speak about the departure of the show.
“It was kind of sudden,” the 64-year-old said. “We were talking about signing up with our network for another couple of years, but we all came to the decision as a group. It just all came to us after 20 seasons and 14 years.”
Jenner also detailed how the show had captured the family’s ups and downs, including the marriages, divorces, and the births of her 10 grandchildren.
She also added that Khloé was the “saddest” about the show concluding. “She stayed with the crew for hours reminiscing about old times,” Jenner revealed.
The family is now taking some time for themselves to plan for their next ventures, as the show was the main project for all of the members.

To our amazing 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. Our last season will air early next year in 2021. Without Keeping Up with The Kardashians, I wouldn’t be where I am today. I am so incredibly grateful to everyone who has watched and supported me and my family these past 14 incredible years. This show made us who we are and I will be forever in debt to everyone who played a role in shaping our careers and changing our lives forever. With Love and Gratitude, Kim
