Fans will get to see another side to the Kardashian family in the new season of Keeping Up With the Kardashians as they adjust to living in quarantine. So much so, the matriarch of the family, Kris Jenner, even broke down in an all new trailer for the show, which premieres in September.
“We’re at another week of quarantine. It’s going to be a while until we get together for a big family dinner again,” the 64-year-old said. “So, I decided to have the whole family come together and do a video call. I think it will be really fun.”
Kris gathered Kim Kardashian, Khloe Kardashian, Scott Disick, and Kendall Jenner for a catchup session. “I feel like I have been in here for a year,” Khloe, 36, told her family. “I feel like I have been FaceTiming with everybody these days so I am excited.”
Kris went on to say she has “good days and bad days, but it’s just about not being able to see you guys. I get really sad.”
The Good American founder replied, “The whole thing is just hard. How long is this going to go on for? What is going to happen?” Scott, 37, made it clear that the virus isn’t stopping anytime soon. “It’s going to go on a lot longer than we think,” he shared.
Kim, 39, asked her mother how grandma M.J. is holding up in these times. “She’s good. But you guys should FaceTime with her because she gets kind of lonely,” Kris said. “I know you all do, but just don’t forget.”
“The last time I saw her, like three weeks ago, I took her for a little ride before they really shut everything down,” the momager recalled. “We just drove around, just familiar spots.” However, Kris was overcome with emotions. “It was good. I just miss her. I feel so bad because she is lonely and she has been in that apartment for I don’t know, two months because of her fracture.”
“I really miss M.J. a lot,” she continued. “We always have things planned and talk about where we’re going to go and what we’re going to do.”
“I feel bad for her,” Khoe replied. “She’s the best.”
“The longer this goes, I am feeling a sense of loss because I can’t be with her,” Kris said.
This season, viewers will get to see if Khloe and her baby daddy, Tristan Thompson, can make it work while they live together with their daughter, True Thompson, in addition to finding out if the Revenge Body host has COVID.
Due to the pandemic, the famous family had to film themselves in their homes. "If Kris gets annoyed and walks out of the camera angle, it's not like we can follow her and continue shooting," executive producer Farnaz Farjam told Elle magazine in May. "She has to come back onto the screen and explain why she walked away. It's less fly-on-the-wall, because we have to give them direction and they have to be more informative with us ... But because this is the Kardashians and they're entertaining regardless, it will be a fun watch for people."
Sounds like we're in for a wild ride, as usual!
