After producing drama that kept fans glued to their screens for 14 years, the Kardashians will end their nominative reality-TV show in 2021.
Kim Kardashian West announced on September 7 that despite KUWTK bringing them all the fame, the family had to arrive at the difficult decision nonetheless.
“We are more than indebted to all of you for the support you’ve given us all these years. Through the tears, the happiness, the bad times, the good times, and the many relationships and little ones,” wrote Kim Kardashian.
The eponymous TV show premiered in 2007 when Kim worked as Paris Hilton’s closet organizer and assistant. Since it aired, KUWTK has enabled the family to rise into an unimaginable space of fame.

The beautiful socialite and business mogul managed to wager the reality TV show into unfathomable wealth. She has sold cosmetics, mobile games, and now Skims shape wear. According to Forbes Magazine, Kim’s net worth is estimated at $900 million after selling 20% from KKW cosmetics to beauty giant Coty.
Kylie Jenner, who was a baby during KUWTK premier, is the founder of Kylie Skin and Kylie Cosmetics. Kylie and Kendall also own a clothing line Kendall + Kylie. She’s estimated at just under $900 million after Kim.
Besides her role in KUWTK, like her business savvy siblings, Khloe Kardashian is a co-founder of the Good American, a clothing line she founded with Emma Grede in 2016. She also earns from the spin-off TV show, Revenge Body. As of 2020, Khloe’s net worth stands at $50 million according to Celebrity Net Worth.
Commonly known as the “Momager” Kris is credited for her efforts behind the Kardashian’s wealth. She’s an executive producer of KUWTK. Kris takes at least 10% from each of her daughters earnings. She additionally owns a profit from Kylie’s cosmetics.
Apart from KUWTK show, Kourtney also earns from her Instagram sponsored posts, and brand collaborations. In 2019, she launched Poosh, a health and wellness website. Kourtney is estimated at having a net worth of $35 million.
The supermodel who graces some of the affluent fashion show walkways in the world has an estimated net worth of $22 million.
Kim Kardashian, Kris Jenner, Kourtney Kardashian, Khloe Kardashian, Rob Kardashian, Kendall Jenner, Kylie Jenner, and Scott Disick signed the heartfelt announcement.
Since its premiere, KUWTK has aired 12 spin-offs on E! They include, Kourtney and Kim Take Miami, Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami, Rob and Chyna, Khloe and Lamar.
Other spin-offs are Kourtney and Khloe Take the Hamptons, I Am Cait, Sex with Brody, Life of Kylie, DASH Dolls, Revenge Body with Khloe Kardashian, Kourtney and Kim Take New York, and Flip It Like Disick.
However, despite ongoing family fights, the violence that erupted between Kourtney and her sisters in season 18, and the bowls of salad they enjoyed together, ratings have also dropped since season 17.
Moreover, while appearing on the cover of Vogue Arabia, Kourtney confirmed that filming KUWTK episodes was toxic to her.
She added that she was taking a step back from too much filming in the remaining seasons to spend more time with her kids.
