“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,” the family said in a joint statement posted to social media. “We’ll forever cherish the wonderful memories and countless people we’ve met along the way.”
The statement lists the names of, as well as children Kourtney, Kim, Khloé and Rob Kardashian; as well as Kendall and Kylie Jenner. Kourtney’s former partner and father of their three kids, Scott Disick, was also listed on the announcement.
The decision to “say goodbye” to the hit E! show was made “as a family,” the statement said. The family also thanked everyone who had been involved in the long-running show.
“Without ‘Keeping Up with The Kardashians,’ I wouldn’t be where I am today,”wrote. “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.”
The reality show premiered on October 14, 2007, according to Entertainment Tonight, and helped launch the careers, as well as the business empire, of the Kardashian/Jenner family.
