It’s official: “Keeping Up with The Kardashians” is slated to bid adieu to its staunch loyalists after a successful 14-year-run on E!. The KUWTK family on Tuesday announced Season 19’s premiere on Sept. 17, and subsequently dropped the news of airing of their last season early in 2021.

Kim Kardashian penned an impassioned note on Instagram, citing how the Kardashians and Jenner will forever be indebted to their fans for the love.

The statement read: “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-offs, 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. The family thanks "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.”

The insanely popular series, co-created by Ryan Seacrest, premiered in 2006. And, things were never the same for the Kardashians, who went all out in the reality show that traced the family’s journey all through. The series piqued the intrigue of fans who wanted an insider peek into the lives of Kim Kardashian and her sisters Khloe, Kourtney, Kendall, and their brother Rob Kardashian, Caitlyn Jenner’s transformation.

 Khloe joined in and expressed her thoughts about moving on, as well. “I am so grateful and thankful to everyone who has supported us and been there through it all. I’m too emotional to fully express myself at the moment. My sappy post will come soon. Change is hard but also needed at times❤️_❤️_ I love you all. Thank you for the memories!” she said on an Instagram post.

Kourtney promised to share her thoughts in a bit, to fans who saw less of her in the last season as she deliberately took a step back from filming extensively, in a bid to protect her private life.
