Caitlyn Marie Jenner has reacted to the news of the reality show "Keeping up with the Kardashians" coming to an end in the 20th season, with hints of how the season finale might be plotted.
During an exclusive interview with the 70-year-old on Thursday, she revealed that her stepson Rob Kardashian, who has been out of the spotlight for a few years, might make a return in the final season.

Jenner explained that Rob was an integral part of the show from the start and although he had been away from the spotlight, he is doing much better and might make an appearance. The Olympic gold medalist further expressed that she was proud of the work the Kardashian-Jenner clan had done, saying:
“I talked to all the kids. I talked to Kim yesterday, I talked to them, and they have done such a magnificent job in taking that show and building their own careers outside of the show.”
The television personality went down memory lane explaining that she was there at the beginning of the show and would like to be present at the end. The former athlete teased a possible return saying, “Don't be shocked if I do show up... we'll see.”
Jenner also revealed that although she heard the news about the show on TV, it didn't come as a shock.
“Keeping Up With The Kardashians” debuted on October 14, 2007, and it is based on the lives of the Kardashian-Jenner clan. The show also spawned 12 spin-off series, which featured detailed adventures, career journeys, romance, and various family members.
Kim, Khloe, Kourtney, Kendall, and Kris all shared the family's statement on their social media pages. "E!" also released a statement expressing that for almost 14 years, the network has been an extended home for the Kardashian-Jenner family, and it's been a privilege.
Jenner also revealed that although she heard the news about the show on TV, it didn't come as a shock. For her, "KUWTK" was probably the greatest reality show in history, and the fact that the stars of the show have all moved on with their personal lives makes the shows sudden end inevitable.
She believes her kids and stepkids all have personal things to pursue, such as her daughter Kendall’s international model career, and Kylie’s cosmetics enterprise.
The 70-year-old was a regular face in the show from its debut in 2007, until 2015 when she and Kris ended their marriage and she went on to transition.
In the beginning, Caitlyn was the celebrity of the show because of her athletic honors at the 1976 Summer Olympics in Montreal, Canada, where she won a gold medal. The "I am Cait" star's popularity has since been overshadowed by that of the Kardashian-Jenner sisters.
