AceShowbiz - Hit reality show "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" is to end next year (21).
Kim Kardashian announced the end of an era via Instagram on Tuesday (08Sep20), revealing the show, which debuted on E! in 2007, will shut down after two more seasons.
Addressing fans, Kim said, "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."
Kim also thanked producer Ryan Seacrest and his E! team for "documenting our lives."
"Our last season will air early next year in 2021," Kardashian added. "Without Keeping Up With the Kardashians, I wouldn't be where I am today. I am so incredibly grateful to everyone who has watched and supported me and my family these past 14 incredible years. This show made us who we are and I will be forever in debt to everyone who played a role in shaping our careers and changing our lives forever."
Season 19 of the show will premiere on E! on 17 September.
The news comes as Kim and her husband Kanye West fight to save their marriage after the rapper recently went public with claims they considered aborting their first child, North, during what his wife claimed was a bipolar episode.
West is also currently staging an unlikely bid to replace Donald Trump as U.S. President.
