Khloe gave a heartwarming thank you to her 121 million followers, explaining that she was too emotional to get into details, while Kourtney revealed that she was still gathering her thoughts about the news.

The reality series, which premiered in 2006, followed each individual sister's life and career, and Caitlyn Jenner's transition journey. According to sources close to the famous family, the decision to quit the show was mutual, despite Kourtney's strong desire to leave the show earlier. The insider noted:

"The kids who started the show now have their own kids, and it's getting very hard to film all together or get enough footage separately."
