Kim and the rest of the Kardashian-Jenner family announced their multi-year partnership with Hulu back in December 2020. Not too much has been revealed about the deal just yet, just that the family would “create global content” exclusively for the streamer. As for the new series, a title and premiere date has not been announced yet, but it will reportedly debut sometime later this year.
During the Disney Upfronts in May (the streamer is owned by Disney), Kris Jenner teased the new series, calling it a new chapter. “In the new show, you’ll see us evolving as a family,” she said. “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. I can’t say much about what’s coming, but spoiler: we’re going to look fabulous and everyone’s going to watch.”

The momager called the transition a “no brainer” during the event. “Partnering with Disney was a no-brainer. We’re huge Bachelor fans and I love American Idol,” Kris said. “Hulu is the perfect place for our new show since it’s where you can currently catch up with every season of Keeping Up With The Kardashians. Hulu feels like family and they immediately embraced the idea of a new show with such open and welcoming arms.”
With day one of production underway, it’s about to be a hectic next few months for Kim. The star is slated to make her Saturday Night Live debut as guest host in the upcoming 47th season, which premieres on October 2 with host Owen Wilson and musical guest Kacey Musgraves. Kim has been tapped to host the October 9 episode with musical guest Halsey. She celebrated the news on Twitter on September 22, writing, “OMFG no turning back now!!!! LOL I’m hosting SNL!!!!!!”
