Khloé Kardashian spoke candidly about the early days of "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" and how the pilot initially did not go anywhere.


Khloé Kardashian appeared on "The Kelly Clarkson Show" and revealed that in the early days of "Keeping Up With The Kardashians," they have thought there would only be 1 season.

The famous reality family is now getting ready to premiere the 20th and final season of KUWTK, which has documented their lives over the last 14 years.

In September, Kim shared that the show's 20th season would be the final one on her Instagram alongside a photo of a throwback poster from the show.

She wrote that the family was grateful to all their fans who had watched the show and all of the many spin-off series. She also gave a special thanks to Ryan Seacrest, who was a co-creator of the show. The caption read:

"Thank you to the thousands of individuals and businesses that have been a part of this experience."


Khloé spoke to People in October and opened up and said that it was bittersweet that the show was coming to an end as the family loves the show and all its spin-offs.

She sat down with Kelly Clarkson on her talk show and discussed the beginnings of the show, motherhood, and her relationship with her dad, Robert Kardashian.

Although fans will not see the Kardashian-Jenner family on E!, they will be working with Hulu.


She revealed that when they had first sent a pilot to Ryan Seacrest, it did not go anywhere, and it seemed that they would not be getting a TV show.

However, she explained that another show on E! had fallen through, so they were given a show. They were told it would only be a filler for the dead air time. Khloé revealed producers told them:

"Don't get too comfortable here. It's, like, just filler."


The family had about two weeks to prepare for filming, which Khloé is now appreciative of as it allowed the family to be themselves.

Khloé added that the show was successful because they were not under any pressure as they assumed they would only have 1 season, so they just had fun and were themselves.

Audiences have loved watching the family be their authentic selves and watch the family dealing with family drama, many relationships, children, and even Caitlyn Jenner's transition.

Although fans will not see the Kardashian-Jenner family on E!, they will be working with Hulu to create content for 2021, as revealed by mom Kris Jenner in a tweet.
