It looks like we won’t be left with Kardashian withdrawals for too long. Kim Kardashian gave another update on the famous family's Hulu show, which will begin following the end of Keeping up with the Kardashians.
While the final season of the E! reality series continued to air on Thursday, April 8, one fan let Kim know just how upset they were to see KUWTK wrap up.
"We won’t be gone long!! Our new show on @hulu will be coming after the final season," Kim replied.
However, the 40-year-old was tight-lipped about any additional details, and the airdate for the season 20 finale of KUWTK has not yet been announced.
"Officially the Kardashian-Jenner family will be developing global content. But Kim, Kourtney, Khloé, Kris, Kendall and Kylie will also be involved with marketing and getting buzz for the network, and getting paid a fortune for it," a source previously told OK! of the family's new venture.
As for what to expect from the new show, "No one is clear exactly what content the family will be providing," OK!'s source explained. "Their reality show doesn’t get big ratings anymore, and Kim and her family are not going to bring in big viewers or advertisers if they do a travel, cooking or fashion show."
The insider continued, "The Hulu deal with the Kardashians is basically a PR and marketing deal. The network needs buzz, and no one has a bigger megaphone than this family. They will be acting like global influencers on social media for Hulu. They are being paid to tweet and post about Hulu, rather than providing content. It is not unlike Netflix’s deal with Meghan Markle and Prince Harry. And if a miracle happens and they deliver a show or two people actually watch, everyone will be happy."
Earlier this year, Ryan Seacrest said he thinks the KarJenners have lots of ideas for the new show and will use it to do things they couldn't on KUWTK.
"It was such a strong franchise and people wanted what they saw from the family. And that’s what they got for 20 seasons," Seacrest said in January.
"My guess would be they want to evolve a little bit from the show that everybody has seen and do something differently. I’m sure it will definitely pique people’s interest, but I think it remains to be seen what exactly they will do."
Momager Kris announced the Hulu partnership in December, only weeks after Kim confirmed the end up KUWTK, but the dynasty has kept the details mum as their last season on E! unfolds.
