Everything to Know About "The Kardashians" on Hulu
The Kardashians are headed to Hulu! After the Kardashian-Jenner clan's announcement that "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" was ending after 20 seasons, fans rejoiced when matriarch Kris Jenner confirmed that she — along with Kim Kardashian, Kylie Jenner, Kourtney Kardashian, Khloé Kardashian, and Kendall Jenner — were coming to Hulu for a new chapter. "Excited to announce our new multi year partnership with Hulu and Star and what's to come in 2021," Kris tweeted in December 2020.
On New Year's Eve 2021, Hulu announced the famous family's show, "The Kardashians." The streamer dropped a 15-second trailer on the same day for the upcoming series, flashing "When the countdown to the New Year ends, the countdown to the new show begins" across the screen. Khloé, Kendall, Kim, Kris, Kourtney, and Kylie also appear in the clip to say, "Happy New Year, everyone!" The entire crew will create content that will stream exclusively on Hulu.
On Feb. 7, Hulu finally shared the premiere date for "The Kardashians," which will arrive on the platform on April 14. A new trailer was then released on March 27, giving fans another look at the drama to come: There's footage of Kourtney engagement to Travis Barker, a pregnant Kylie discussing having another child, and Khloé and Tristan Thompson evaluating their relationship.
Read ahead to get the full scoop on everything there is to know about "The Kardashians," including its plot, cast, and trailers.
"The Kardashians" on Hulu Cast
As expected, Kendall, Khloé, Kim, Kourtney, Kris, and Kylie are all set to appear regularly on the show. However, there's no word yet on how often we'll see Rob Kardashian.
Will Pete Davidson Be on "The Kardashians" on Hulu?
At the moment, Davidson is not set to appear on the show, but Kim is open to it. "I have not filmed with him," Kim told Variety about Davidson's possible appearance. "And I'm not opposed to it. It's just not what he does. But if there was an event happening and he was there, he wouldn't tell the cameras to get away. I think I might film something really exciting coming, but it wouldn't be for this season."
Will Travis Barker Be on "The Kardashians" on Hulu?
Based on the show's trailers, Barker does appear on the show. During a previous appearance on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show," Kim also teased his appearance, saying, "He's such a big part of Kourtney's life that hopefully they will be on. I love their relationship."
"The Kardashians" on Hulu Plot
According to the new reality show, viewers will be getting an "all-access pass" to the lives of the family they know and love. And, as we'd hoped, the Kardashians are bringing the cameras back to get to the truth behind the headlines. "From the intense pressures of running billion-dollar businesses to the hilarious joys of playtime and school drop-offs, this series brings viewers into the fold with a rivetingly honest story of love & life in the spotlight," the synopsis reads.
During the May 2021 Disney Upfronts, Kris said that the Hulu series is "the next chapter" for the family. "In the new show, you'll see us evolving as a family. Fans want us to be who we are, and since moment one, they've been emotionally invested in our show, just like we are. The fans will love seeing us continue the journey." She added, "I can't say much about what's coming, but spoiler: we're going to look fabulous and everyone's going to watch."
"The Kardashians" on Hulu Premiere Date
In a video announcement, Hulu revealed that "The Kardashians" will premiere on April 14, with new episodes streaming every Thursday. During an appearance on "The Ellen Degeneres Show" in October, Khloé alluded to an earlier series-premiere date, saying the show was expected to arrive "either end of January, early February." "That's the beauty of Hulu," she said. "We're streaming, and we get to have a much quicker turn-around than previously. We're really excited."
