If you've been kneeling by your bed every night asking Our Lord Ryan Seacrest for more Kardashians, then your prayers have been answered, because a new series starring Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna has been ordered and is coming your way. The six-episode, one-hour season was announced via a press release on Jun. 1, and will follow the couple's whirlwind relationship and unexpected — for me, at least — pregnancy. The current title is Rob & Chyna, which could change, but seems to match the way the Kardashian-Jenner clan labels the rest of their shows. You know, just naming the people in it. At this point, with this spotlight-loving family, we know they're going to show us pretty much everything, so the names of the people whose lives we'll be eavesdropping and spying on is all we need.
Apparently, the series will cover the huge milestones like the couple's engagement, the discovery and announcement of their pregnancy, and everything in between, so it seems like they've already been filming for some time. After all, speculation about Rob and Chyna's engagement began as far back as Apr. 5, with Chyna's pregnancy being announced a month later on May 6. In order for there to be footage of those events and everything in between, this project has presumably been in the works for a while. And now it's been greenlit, with the Ryan Seacrest-produced episodes slated to come out later this year.
As if that isn't enough, down the road, we'll also be treated to a special on the birth of Rob and Chyna's daughter, although obviously the date for that is still up in the air.
Even though it might feel like Kardashian overload to some, I have to admit that I'm pretty excited to get a look inside this relationship. Things moved so quickly between Blac Chyna and Rob Kardashian that I've been curious for a while now what goes on between them behind closed doors. This opportunity to throw open those doors and let me gaze inside as much as I want isn't one that I'll let pass me by.
