Keeping Up With The Kardashians is one of the most popular reality TV series right now, and it is sadly coming to an end. 

The family announced the news in an Instagram post, saying the show will end after its 20th season.

They said: “It is with heavy hearts that we say goodbye to Keeping Up with the Kardashians.

“After what will be 14 years, 20 seasons, hundreds of episodes and several spin-off shows, we’ve decided as a family to end this very special journey.  

“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.”

There has been no official reason as to why the series is coming to an end, other than the family wants to spend some time out of the limelight. 

An E! spokeswoman told Deadline: “E! has been the home and extended family to the Kardashian-Jenners for what will be 14 years, featuring the lives of this empowering family.  

“Along with all of you, we have enjoyed following the intimate moments the family so bravely shared by letting us into their daily lives.

“While it has been an absolute privilege and we will miss them wholeheartedly, we respect the family’s decision to live their lives without our cameras.

“It is not our final goodbye yet, we are excited to have the new season of ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians’ launching on September 17 with the final season airing in 2021.

“We thank the entire extended family and our production partners, Bunim Murray and Ryan Seacrest Productions for embarking on this global phenomenon together.”

Fans of the hit reality series were devastated by the news and took to social media to voice their disappointment.

Posting on Twitter, one user named Laura wrote: “As if 2020 couldn’t get worse, Keeping up with the Kardashians is ending.”

While fan Troy Meaz wrote: “Just found out that Keeping up with the Kardashians is ending after 14 years of nothing but quality content. The end of an era…”

A third named Sophie Thompson added: “Keeping Up With The Kardashians has been cancelled when will 2020 let us find PEACE.”

The show made its debut back in 2007 and it is available to watch on Netflix, so fans will still have some history to look back on. 

More than 250 episodes have aired so far, and there has been an extra five special instalments. 

The idea of creating the reality series started in 2006 when Kris Jenner asked about appearing on a television show together with her family.

At the time Jenner told The New York Times: “Everybody thinks that [my children] could create a bunch of drama in their lives, but it’s something that I felt I didn’t even have to think about. It would be natural.”

The show has been made famous all over the world and each of the siblings has gone on to create their own empire in the world of entertainment. 

Fans are devastated to see the series come to an end, but they are keen to find out what the Kardashians will get up to next.
