Keeping Up with the Kardashians star Caitlyn Jenner has admitted that she didn't know about the show's cancellation until it was confirmed in the press.
The Kardashian-Jenner family and E! announced earlier this week that the reality series will come to an end with its 20th season, which is set to air in 2021.
But Caitlyn, who has appeared on the show regularly since its 2007 debut and starred in her own spin-off show I Am Cait in 2015, has admitted that she found out about the show's cancellation via the media like the rest of us.
"I heard it on the news. Nobody called me, I heard it through the media," Caitlyn told Australia's The Morning Show.
"Was I surprised? No. But that show, it's probably the greatest reality show in history. There are over 500 episodes over 14 years.
"The girls have and Kris [Jenner] have done just an amazing job with the show and keeping it going for this long. But everybody is in a different place now and I think it's time to move on.
"Shows do come and go, and this one is by far the best of any reality show in history, and at some point, it is going to come to an end."
Caitlyn also explained why she wasn't surprised that KUWTK is ending, saying that all of the Kardashian-Jenner clan have "branched out into other things".
"I wasn't surprised but I just am so proud of the kids for doing such a great job over the years," she continued.
"I don't know the inner workings of all the family, but I know all of the kids have moved on into their own areas.
"Kendall, you know, is a top model in the world. She works really hard at that. Kylie got into the cosmetic world, Kim got into the cosmetic world, the shapewear business, she's studying to be a lawyer, she's got four kids, the list goes on.
"They have very busy lives and they have branched out into other things. And so I think they really want to pursue the other things, probably more right now because that's where their future is."
The star also said that she was "thankful" that the show had been a part of her life, saying that the family became "much closer" due to the programme.
"Some of the best times that I had with my children and some of the greatest conversations I ever had with all my kids as they were growing up was on the show," she added.
"The show kind of forces you to sit down and talk about the issues, and I think the whole family became much closer because of this show. And I'm thankful for that."
