“It is with heavy hearts that we say goodbye to Keeping Up with the Kardashians,” the family said in a statement posted to Instagram. “After what will be 14 years, 20 seasons, hundreds of episodes and several spin-off shows, we’ve decided as a family to end this very special journey.”
The news comes ahead of the show’s 19th season, which is set to premiere on Thursday, Sept. 17. The 20th and final season will air in early 2021.
Since its debut in 2007, “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” has become one of the longest-running reality TV series in history and E!’s top-rated program.

While it has been an absolute privilege and we will miss them wholeheartedly, we respect the family’s decision to live their lives without our cameras. It is not our final goodbye yet, we are excited to have the new season of ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians’ launching on September 17 with the final season airing in 2021. We thank the entire extended family and our production partners, Bunim Murray and Ryan Seacrest Productions for embarking on this global phenomenon together.”
