‘The Kardashians’ Season 5 Attracts Best Unscripted Premiere This Year For Disney+ & Hulu

EXCLUSIVE: The Kardashians is back and, it appears, better than ever.

The Kardashians has managed to beat out basically everything besides Shōgun as the second most-watched entertainment premiere this year, too.

Audiences are apparently catching up on all the past drama as well, because viewership for the first season has tripled since the Season 5 premiere.

Also, Seasons 2 through 4 are seeing spikes in viewership between 99% to 187%, Disney says.

While it’s technically Season 5, the Kardashian-Jenner family has actually entered their 25th season of reality TV this year, as matriarch Kris Jenner points out in the premiere episode.

The Kardashian-Jenners launched their Hulu reality series in 2022, but they had previously starred in Keeping Up with the Kardashians which aired for 14 years prior, from 2007 to 2021.

Fulwell 73 partner Ben Winston executive produces alongside Emma Conway and Elizabeth Jones with Danielle King serving as showrunner and executive producer. Kris Jenner, Kourtney Kardashian Barker, Kim Kardashian, Khloé Kardashian, Kendall Jenner and Kylie Jenner also serve as executive producers.
