It truly is an end of an era: After 20 seasons, Keeping Up With the Kardashians is permanently wrapping up in early 2021.
"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 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," Kim posted on her Instagram.
Some wonder if this means Kris Jenner will end up on 'RHOBH'
It's not like Kris to leave money on the table, so she must have something up her sleeve after KUWTK is over, right? Some think that Kris might pivot to a different reality TV franchise: The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills (sure, she lives in Calabasas, but who's looking?). People have actually been speculating Kris might join the world of Real Housewives since 2019 when she made her first cameo on RHOBH. She's been on the show three times since, and fit in pretty seamlessly, TBH.
Back in November 2019, someone tweeted, "desperate for the kardashians to tank so kris jenner is forced to join real housewives of beverly hills."

In March, someone posted, "I mean I know she has her own show but just imagine Kris Jenner being on the cast of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills." Um, yes, we can imagine!

Many others have hyped up the idea of Kris joining RHOBH.

I can’t remember the last time I had a thrill like just now of seeing kris jenner on real housewives of Beverly Hills— Madeline Haas (@Haazym0do) August 5, 2020
And now, Kris really doesn't have much of an excuse to not join RHOBH, right?
"They either need to give someone their own spinoff show or get Kris Jenner on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills," one person tweeted.
So far, Kris hasn't hinted to any new projects, but we really don't see the Momager retiring any time soon. And since she's already appeared on the Bravo show, it doesn't seem like her involvement would be in direct conflict with her contract with E! — which has ended, anyway. Most likely, she's free to pursue whatever we she wants, whether it's RHOBH, her own show, or running for President (honestly, this would not be shocking at this point).
Why is Keeping Up With the Kardashians ending, anyway?
Neither Kris, nor her children have explained why the reality TV show is ending, but it might just be that the show isn't as popular as it once was. According to Showbiz411.com, viewership went down during quarantine, dipping below a million. Maybe the Kardashians want a break — after all, they've been living in front of the camera for 14 years straight. As for income? Nobody really has to worry much, since everyone in the family has their own hustle (except maybe Rob, who lost full control of his sock company, but we're sure he'll be just fine).
We're sure we'll see whatever Kris or the rest of the gang have planned on social media sooner rather than later. That's pretty much how it always goes.
