Award winning reality television show Keeping Up With the Kardashians is coming to an end in January 2021. After 14 years of drama, laughs, fights, and achievements, the Kardashian and Jenner family has decided it would be best for them. “After what will be 14 years, 20 seasons, hundreds of episode and numerous spin-off shows, 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 many relationships and children,” Kim Kardashian posted in a statement on Instagram on Sept. 8th. 

Not only do the members of Keeping Up With the Kardashians plan to continue on to bigger and better things, but they also wanted their lives to become more private. According to US Magazine, “Additionally, the family — including mom Kris Jenner, and daughters Kim, Khloé and Kourtney Kardashian, and Kendall and Kylie Jenner — wanted a break from sharing every bit of their lives.” With most of the Kardashian and Jenner sisters being a parent, wrapping up Keeping Up With the Kardashians is a good way for them to focus more on their personal life. 

On the other hand, fans are extremely bummed about the show ending. Keeping Up With the Kardashians is a popular show that is watched globally. When it was first released, it became the “highest-rated series aired on Sunday nights for adults 18–34 and was seen by 1.3 million total viewers” according to Nielsen Media Research. Due to the nail-biting drama and sister chaos, Keeping Up With the Kardashians is favored by highschool students.

Miramonte students are positively impacted by the show as it is a way for them to relax on the weekend and enjoy bonding time with siblings. “I am super bummed that Keeping Up With the Kardashians is ending because I have watched it for years. My sister and I enjoy watching it every weekend and love it,” sophomore Emma Moltyaner said. 

“Keeping Up With the Kardashians is one of my favorite shows. It’s entertaining to watch how the sisters banter with each other. In some way, I feel like I can relate to them because I have three siblings,” junior Allison Smith said. 

After 14 years of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, viewers have never been disappointed. Not only will the show be greatly missed by fans, but by the Kardashian and Jenner family as well.
