Keeping Up With the Kardashians ended this summer, but fans won’t have to wait very long to see the famous family on their TV screens again. In late 2020, it was announced that the Kardashians signed a multi-year deal with Hulu to develop “global content” with the streaming service. “Excited to announce our new multi-year partnership with Hulu and Star and what’s to come in 2021," matriarch Kris Jenner wrote on Twitter shortly after the news broke. And there is something on the way — but it’s coming in 2022 instead.

The original series announcement came just three months after the Kardashians revealed that KUWTK would end after Season 20. “We are beyond grateful to all of you who’ve watched us for all of these years — through the good times, the bad times, the happiness, the tears, and the many relationships and children. We’ll forever cherish the wonderful memories and countless people we’ve met along the way,” Kim Kardashian wrote on Instagram at the time. “This show made us who we are and I will be forever in debt to everyone who played a role in shaping our careers and changing our lives forever.”

Though details on the new Kardashians Hulu show are still pretty scarce, a new teaser dropped during New Year’s Eve provided the closest look yet at the series. Here is everything you should know so far.

When Will The Kardashians’ New Shows Premiere?

On Dec. 31, 2021, the reality family unveiled a New Year’s Eve-themed teaser for their new Hulu show — along with the formal title announcement. Introducing, The Kardashians. (Looks like they took some notes from The Social Network and dropped the “Keeping up with.” It’s cleaner.) Per a press release, the show is a “new, intimate journey into their lives.”

“When the countdown to the new year ends,” the teaser says, “the countdown to the new show begins.” Cue a clip of all the KarJenner women wishing viewers a happy new year. Interestingly, Kim and Kris are standing together in the middle while the other siblings each occupy their own separate box on screen.

So we know the countdown is on — to when, well, the teaser didn’t exactly reveal. The sparse footage in the teaser didn’t provide any clues, and seemed to be behind-the-scenes shots from a promotional photoshoot. Fortunately, one of the family members might have dropped a hint. During an Oct. 21 appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Khloé revealed that their series will most likely premiere around the “end of January, early February … Really fast, so that’s the beauty of Hulu,” she said. “We’re streaming so we get to have a much quicker turnaround than previously. We’re really excited.”

Are They Making More Reality Shows?

Though more reality seems like a natural next step for the family, it wasn’t always a foregone conclusion. “Hey guys, we just finished filming forever. Like forever, ever,” Kim said during the show’s final season, raising a glass to the behind-the-scenes crew. “We’re done. We’re never filming again, isn’t that so crazy?” she said, suggesting that their Hulu content wouldn’t necessarily be a reality series in the same format as the original.

But in May, Kris gave a little more information about one of their newest shows. Per People, during the Disney Upfronts, she explained that “this is the next chapter.”

“In the new show, you’ll see us evolving as a family, fans want us to be who we are and since moment one, they’ve been emotionally invested in our show just like we are,” she said. “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.” As the new teaser confirmed, the family does, in fact, look fabulous.

According to Us Weekly, Kim also teased that Kourtney’s ex Scott Disick will follow the Kardashian-Jenners to Hulu for their next project, though he didn’t appear in the women-centric teaser.

Will They Ever Bring Back KUWTK?

Probably not. Kris told KUWTK producer Ryan Seacrest in September that the family was looking to “take a minute and breathe and everybody slow down a bit.” She also said that it felt like the right time to end the show. “Not slow down professionally, but just you know figure out what our next steps are,” she added.

Around the same time, a source close to the family told Entertainment Tonight that it simply became too much for everyone to balance their filming schedule with their growing families and other work commitments. “There was no big reason why the family decided to end KUWTK,” the source told the outlet. “The kids who started the show now have their own kids and it’s getting very hard to film all together or get enough footage separately.”

However, that doesn’t mean they are completely opposed to bringing KUWTK back at some point in the future. “It’s really simple. We just need a minute to regroup,” Kim told Grazia in October of last year, explaining that the family hadn’t taken a break “for 14 years” due to their busy schedules. “We’ve gone in filming a season, then a spin-off, and I think there’s no other way to say it other than, we just live such big lives ... There’s so much going on that, even just for a minute, we need a break.”

Will They Explore Some Other Passions?

With a KUWTK revival off the table for the time being, it seems more likely that the Kardashians will develop shows that are catered to some of their other side projects and interests as part of their Hulu deal. In January 2020, Kim’s social justice and prison reform-focused series, The Justice Project, premiered on Oxygen, and in June 2020, Spotify announced that she was co-producing a podcast about criminal justice reform, titled Proving Innocence.

The KKW Beauty founder has long been open about studying to earn her law degree and her passion for social justice and fighting wrongful incarceration, and it seems likely that Hulu subscribers will probably see even more of her criminal justice work going forward. Kim also has her starring voice role in Paw Patrol: The Movie to look forward to in August. Khloé’s beauty and fashion ventures continue to keep her busy, and Kourtney has Poosh and a brand new fiancé in drummer Travis Barker.

As for Kendall and Kylie, Kendall’s modeling career, relationship, and controversial 818 Tequila brand should keep her occupied. In September, Kylie announced her own line of baby products called “Kylie Baby.” Us Weekly announced in 2019 that the mom of one filed trademarks for “Kylie Baby.” The Kylie Cosmetics founder teased the project in June with a bathtime photo of her 3-year-old daughter Stormi. “bath time with @kyliebaby,” the caption read.

As for Kris, the former talk show host could also be jumping into the beauty entrepreneur space as well. It was first rumored in February that the momager was hatching a potential skin-care line. PopSugar published that pending trademarks for Kris Jenner Beauty, Kris Jenner Skin, and Kris Jenner Skincare appeared in search results from the United States Patent and Trademark Office. Kris then confirmed in March that she would be launching her own skincare brand within the next two years, declaring that it was “ready to go.”

How Will Fans Keep Up With The Kardashians In The Meantime?

Fans still have an easy way to follow the Kardashians and their various business ventures before the premiere of their new Hulu content: social media. “When we first started, there was no Instagram or Snapchat or other social media platforms,” Kris told WWD’s Beauty Inc. in October. “The world has changed. Now there are so many, the viewer doesn’t have to wait three or four months to see an episode. We can give them all of the information anyone would ever want to know in real-time.”

As the wait for the Kardashians to make the switch to streaming continues, fans everywhere will be impatiently refreshing their feeds for whatever details they can find.
