No longer will you be able to watch a few minutes of the show and think, "okay, so my family is sane after all."
Have you been feeling like the year 2020 has been one long never-ending stream of bad news, served to you back-to-back? Well, there is finally some good news: Keeping Up With the Kardashians is coming to an end after 14 years.
It was announced that fans can get back to watching the divas lose their temper and fall into little scandals every now and then with the 19th season coming up on September 17. And this would be following by one more season, the last and final 20th season that will be aired in early 2021, according to E!
A statement that was released on Kim Kardashian's Instagram, "To our amazing fans - It is with heavy hearts that we’ve made the difficult decision as a family to say goodbye to Keeping Up with the Kardashians."
Raise your hand if you have had a heavy heart from trying to sit through one entire episode.
The statement went on to say, "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."
For nearly a decade and a half, the family has laid their lives out to the public and the Kardashian-Jenner clan definitely mastered the technique of arresting eyeballs with their family dynamics. "They managed to take a series of skills, very special skills that they had, that heretofore had not had any particular value, and managed to create a genre of entertainment for which they were perfectly suited," said Robert Thompson, professor of television and popular culture at Syracuse University, according to The New York Times. "The show ultimately was about what it looked like when somebody went about a life looking for slobbering attention."
Many in America, and even across the world, would miss the show that had a good, long run. Others would miss it because it is the shutdown of a very important meme-factory for the internet. Let's have a moment of silence because it's the end of an era and a nod to all the GIFs that made us laugh till our stomachs hurt.
