Back in September, an official statement from the TV personality revealed that the famous clan decided not to renew their contracts with E! and were therefore ending their long-running reality show, with Season 20 concluding later this year.
And on January 8, the mother of four took to her Instagram page as she documented the final moments she would share with her crew members — some who’ve been working with the family since the first series aired 14 years ago.
“Last filming day of Keeping up With The Kardashian’s EVER!” the Skims founder captioned a video of a staff member sorting out her audio equipment before filming commenced.
She then continued, “Erin’s been [our] audio tech for 14 years!!”
From there, Kardashian shared a bunch of clips of the special dinner the family had with their crew held at her Los Angeles property after wrapping up production on the final episode.
She raised her glass of bubbly in one of the Instagram shots, which she captioned, saying, “Officially sobbing. Grateful for every single second.”
As previously mentioned, the family announced last year that KUWTK would be coming to an end, with sources later claiming that momager Kris Jenner and her daughters weren’t happy with the deal offered by E!, subsequently leaving them to shop their reality show ideas elsewhere.
In an official statement, Kardashian reflected on the wonderful memories and opportunities that KUWTK had presented her with all these years, adding that while this chapter is officially closing, she was “beyond grateful” for the experience that came with starring in a reality show for 14 years.
“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,” she said.
“After what will be 14 years, 20 seasons, hundreds of episodes and numerous spin-off shows, 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.”
In December, it was confirmed that the Kardashians had inked a lucrative multi-year content deal with Disney, bringing any upcoming shows to its Hulu platform in late 2021.
On top of that, Vulture asserts that the deal includes the entire family (except for Rob Kardashian), while Kourtney Kardashian is also said to have agreed to join the family on their next big project, having infamously quit KUWTK last year because filming the reality show was making her feel miserable at times.
The Kardashians will return — but this time on Hulu — later this year.
