Hulu is about to start keeping up with the Kardashians.
Among the revelations made by Disney during its Investor Day Thursday, the company announced that it’s inked a deal with the Kardashian family to create “global content that will stream exclusively on Hulu in the U.S,” that will be debuting in late 2021.
Vulture writer Josef Adalian tweeted that Disney Plus + Hotstar would also be carrying the new kontent.
Per MSNBC, Kris, Kim, Kourtney, Khloe, Kendall and Kylie were named in the announcement. As far as Rob Kardashian, Caitlyn Jenner and “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” supporting characters like Scott Disick or Jonathan “Foodgod” Cheban, we suppose we’ll have to wait and see if they announce, say, a Criterion Channel streaming deal.
“Keeping Up With The Kardashians” will be ending next year, as the family announced in September. Reportedly, Kris Jenner made the decision to end the show when Kylie and Kim threatened to walk; Khloé and Disick both wanted to continue for the show’s “easy paycheck.” Insiders told Page Six that a number of factors, including Kim’s desire to keep Kanye West’s mental health struggle out of the spotlight, and the family’s insistence on more money to re-up with E!, converged to put the nail in the “KUWTK” koffin.
After the announcement, Page Six reported that the family was expected to ink a deal with a streaming platform and was even pondering starting their own platform.
