Kris Jenner Says Social Media Played A Part In “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” Ending
Kris Jenner is opening up about the popular E! reality tv show,”Keeping Up With The Kardashians” coming to an end. The Kardashian/Jenner matriarch recently did an interview where she shared her thoughts and feelings about the show coming to an end and even revealed that social media is partly to blame. Kris Jenner said,
“When we first started, there was no Instagram or Snapchat or other social media platforms. The world has changed. Now there are so many, the viewer doesn’t have to wait three or four months to see an episode. We can give them all of the information anyone would ever want to know in real time.”
“Social media is the fastest and most controlled way to get the message out. The consumer gets to see the products the girls are working on in real time, and they know we’re going to get it out the door pretty quickly. The girls want them to be part of the journey to keep them engaged.”
In September 2020, the Kardashian/Jenner clan announced “KUWTK” would be ending in 2021. Kim Kardashian to took to her Instagram to break the news to the world. At the time, Kim wrote:
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-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.
Thank you to 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.
Our last season will air early next year in 2021.
The series debuted on October 14, 2007, and has subsequently become one of the longest-running reality television series in the country. Keeping Up with the Kardashians focuses on the personal and professional lives of the Kardashian–Jenner blended family.
