The Kardashian-Jenners have signed a multi-year deal to create content with Hulu

Corey Gamble, Kris Jenner, Kanye West, K...

In September, we learned that Keeping Up with the Kardashians will be over after the 20th season, which finishes airing next year. The fact that the Kardashian-Jenners strung together 20 seasons of reality programming over the course of 13 years is… actually kind of an achievement, all things considered. The family built a literal empire off of Kim’s sex tape and ass. And even though Kim outgrew the show years ago, she kept her contractual obligations with E!, her family and her sisters. Anyway, two seconds after they announced the end of KUWTK, Kris Jenner obviously floated the idea that the family was in the market with a new deal with one of the streaming companies, Netflix, Disney, Amazon, etc. No surprise, they made a deal. With Hulu.

The Kardashian-Jenner clan isn’t ready to say goodbye to television just yet. Kim Kardashian West, Khloé Kardashian, Kourtney Kardashian, Kendall Jenner, Kylie Jenner and Kris Jenner have signed a multi-year deal to “create global content” that will be streamed exclusively on Hulu in the United States and in multiple territories on Star internationally, according to an announcement made at Disney’s Investor Day on Thursday.

New content from the famous family is expected to premiere in late 2021.

“Excited to announce our new multi year partnership with Hulu and Star and what’s to come in 2021 @hulu,” Kris, 65, tweeted in the wake of the news.

Meanwhile, both Khloé, 36, and Kourtney, 41, celebrated the announcement by tweeting the hashtags: “Hulu 2021.”

News of the massive deal comes just three months after the family announced their decision to end their long-running E! reality series, Keeping Up with the Kardashians.

My guess is that the deal is very tailored to what the family’s interests are now, and it won’t be another KUWTK. As I said months ago, I could totally see Khloe developing her own brand with fitness shows, or a solo show about her denim brand, something like that. I doubt Kylie needs anything – she sold a majority stake in her Kylie Cosmetics company and now she’s rich and idle and she doesn’t want people up in her financial or personal business. Kim doesn’t want anyone to get a closer look at her personal sh-t either, although I could totally see her developing shows around her interests, perhaps even around the justice system/crime. Anyway, the Kardashian-Jenners are back. They never left.

    Come on! Come on man! This is malarkey!

    Ugh. Just…..ugh. And I don’t watch any of their shows or buy any of their products but ugh. I kept hoping they would just go away and yet they’re still here.

    • STRIPE says:

      I don’t watch the shows but I bought Good American jeans not realizing they were Khloe’s and…..they’re great and I love them. It’s my dirty secret. But here we are.

    • Mustang Sally says:

      Agreed. The quickest way to make them go away/become non-relevant is to NOT watch their drivel or buy their products.

  3. Redder says:

    I honestly can’t see them succeeding in this, regardless of how many followers they have. Their rating plummeted in recent seasons, and honestly I think people won’t actively tune into a streaming service for their stuff. My guess (and hope) is that they get people at the very beginning because their fans will be curious, but everything will tapper off after a year.

  4. Sunday says:

    Haven’t we all suffered enough this year?!?!?!?! Make it STOP, PLEASE.

    Can’t wait til they position Kim K as a criminal justice hero just like NBC positioned Trump as a successful businessman with The Apprentice… not like that backfired spectacularly, leaving hundreds of thousands dead and reaping global consequences that will reverberate for decades or anything, I mean what could go wrong.

  5. Lolo86lf says:

    Oh my God, so this deal means we’ll never get rid of the Kardashians? What is wrong with America?

    • Sunday says:

      The entire slate of Disney announcements just further indicates that they have zero interest in taking any creative risk whatsoever and solely exist to squeeze every last penny they can out of already-fatigued IPs like Star Wars and Marvel. The Kardashians are just the latest franchise that they can commoditize Disney-style.

    If you’re watching their crap or buying the garbage they shill, you’re a huge part of the problem. These people have shown you what they are and yet people can’t stop throwing their money away on a family who is happy to take advantage of everyone and everything and contribute nothing to the world or their fellow humans.

    • Jules says:

      so much this ^^

    • Sunday says:

      100%, and I’ll add that even if you’re hate-watching or engaging with their posts on social media to dunk on them, you’re actively putting money in their pockets and extending their 15 minutes again and again. Hate-watch ratings count the same as fans tuning in and really needs to stop, across the board. It’s the same as quote-tweeting right-wing losers – it’s a grift and they’re laughing all the way to the bank. Hollywood does a poor enough job picking who to elevate and who to shelve; let’s not make it any easier for them.

    They are like roaches. They keep coming back.

  8. HK9 says:

    why. WHY??!!??

  9. Phillyperson says:

    Well I’ve been looking for a reason to reduce the number of streaming service subscriptions I have. Thanks hulu for making that decision easier.

  10. prissaO says:

    UGH. I was hopeful when they ended their KWTK reign on E! Was really wishing they would vanish into the ether but here they are AGAIN! Very disappointed.

    Side note: they ALL look like soulless ZOMBIES in that Met Gala pic. Unappealing, vapid and uninteresting. WILL NOT WATCH!

  11. holly hobby says:

    I just signed onto hulu because they had a good black friday deal. They better not show this crap on my “what you’re interested in menu.” I wonder how they measure ratings at hulu. I”m hoping no one watches this trash family’s shows and hulu can just drop them.

  12. shanaynay says:

    Anyone who is a fan of theirs is to blame for them never going away.

  13. Amando says:

    Ugh…aren’t people sick of them yet? Especially with all that has happened this year with COVID and how they continue to throw parties and live their best lives. It’s gross.

  14. Lily P says:

    we were so close

  15. Coffeeisgood says:

    I’d watch a Kim k show about crime/justice.

    Kim could become the new Judge Judy…
