When Will 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' Return? Season 12 Is On The Way

It's that horrible time of year again, guys — the time when the Keeping Up With The Kardashians season finale airs. For the past few months, we've been spoiled by new episode after new episode of the show, and I've loved catching up with my favorite famous family. But unfortunately, all good things come to an end, including KUWTK. Now, down to the important stuff: When does Keeping Up With The Kardashians return for Season 12? We don't know when, but we do know that the Kardashians (and their drama) are going to be on our TVs for a long, long time. [UPDATE: An E! press release revealed that the show will return May 1.]

Unfortunately, E! hasn't released a date you can add to your calendar just yet, but being that the show has retained its popularity over the years, it's no surprise that they're definitely coming back. Last year, the network renewed KUWTK for an additional 3 years, which means we'll see the antics of Kim and her sisters until at least 2018, which sounds like a pretty good deal to me. And a good deal for them, too, since reportedly they got $100 million out of it, according to The Wrap, although an NBCUniversal spokesperson called that statistic "grossly inaccurate" at the time, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Either way, if you were worried Sunday night might be the last you see of them, don't be. Far from it!

If the show follows the pattern set by previous seasons, though, we could get the next season as soon as this summer. It sounds like that's a long time from now, but it'll fly by. And besides, there are a lot of things to look forward to when Season 12 does premiere. Like...

Saint West

By the time the season premieres, I'm hoping Kim's new baby will be primed and ready for his KUWTK debut. It's what the world needs and deserves.

The Kanye West Drama

I don't know if you follow Kanye on Twitter, but if you haven't been living under a rock the past few weeks, there's been a lot of buzz about his new album, his feud with Taylor Swift, and his claims of being $53 million in debt. His life isn't always documented by the E! cameras, but I'm hoping that some of the behind-the-scenes was filmed while all of this was going on.

Kendall & Kylie Launching Their App

Have you played it yet? It's seriously addicting.

Khloe & Lamar's Friendship

Because as Khloe has reminded us, they are just friends — and she's a wonderful person for sticking by Lamar's side through such a tough time. I'd love to see Lamar's recovery through her eyes.
