“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.

“Thank you to the thousands of individuals and businesses that have been a part of this experience and, most importantly, a very special thank you to Ryan Seacrest for believing in us, E! for being our partner, and our production team at Bunim/Murray, who’ve spent countless hours documenting our lives.

“I’m not okkkk” Kardashian friend Simon Huck wrote, with Balmain creative director Olivier Rousteing writing: “No way”.

Keeping Up With The Kardashians first aired on E! in 2007, instantly catapulting the family into superstardom.

Over the years, they’ve had numerous spin-off shows, including Khloe & Lamar, Kourtney & Kim Take Miami and the short-lived Dash Dolls.

Over the past few seasons, younger sisters Kendall Jenner and Kylie Jenner have barely appeared on the show, with Rob Kardashian signing off from the series a few seasons ago.

A huge chunk of the last season was dedicated to Kourtney Kardashian’s battle with wanting to step away from filming while her sisters, Kim and Khloe remained onboard.
