Keeping Up With The Kardashians is officially ending, and lifelong fans of the show want to know why it’s cancelled.
Kim Kardashian announced Keeping Up With The Kardashians is finally ending after 14 years of the reality TV show.
Taking to Twitter to confirm the decision, Kim told her millions of followers it came with a “heavy heart” to say goodbye to the show after 20 seasons.
The series followed Kim, Kourtney, Khloe, Kendall and Kylie Jenner, their brother Rob and mum Kris since 2007.
But why is Keeping Up With The Kardashians ending? Here are some of the theories as to why it is finally over.
Why is Keeping Up With The Kardashians cancelled?
Kardashians looking for a lucrative streaming deal 'with Netflix, Amazon, Apple or their own TV company'
No sooner had news broke their show was coming to a close after the 2021 series than reports of the family seeking a lucrative TV deal with a streaming platform such as Netflix to continue their TV endeavours, so hope might not be lost after all!
Page Six reported the family could even be looking to start their own media company in order to give them full control (including financial) as they branch out in the future, and if anyone knows the business savvy Kris Jenner, we probably shouldn't discount this just yet!
Kim and Kanye West’s marriage troubles
Kim and Kanye have been facing marriage struggles this year, with Kanye publicly taking aim at his wife and his mother-in-law Kris on Twitter following an emotional breakdown at his first presidential campaign.
After a string of Kanye’s tweets, one claiming Kim and Kris were ‘trying to lock him up’, Kim shared a statement saying his bi-polar disorder is “incredibly complicated and painful to understand”.
She has since stood by her husband, with recent reports claiming Kim is putting an end to the series that helped make her famous because she wants to keep her marriage to Kanye 'very, very private'.
Kourtney quit the show
Kourtney confirmed in March she’d quit KUWTK, saying it had become a “toxic environment.”
When sister Kim revealed the show would be ending, Kourtney took to Instagram to say: “I will gather my thoughts and share them in a bit.”
Scott ‘betrayed’ by rehab news leak
In May, Kourtney’s ex and father to her three children Scott Disick checked into rehab for a week, reportedly for substance abuse issues.
And in a recent trailer for the new series of the Kardashians, Scott appears furious at one of the family members for leaking his rehab stint to the press, branding it “a betrayal.”
Khloe and Tristan are back on
Khloe and Tristan are back together after a year and a half apart, and the news she has accepted her cheating ex back into her life didn’t go down well with some viewers.
They originally split in 2019 when it emerged he’d kissed family friend Jordyn Woods.
The final series of KUWTK will air early 2021.
