Kylie Jenner is getting her very own reality TV series, and fans of her super-popular, quick-to-disappear lip kits might wonder how many episodes of Life of Kylie there will be (and if it's possible for them to be sold out before the series premieres). But, thankfully, there's no limit to how many people can tune in to the show's debut season. According to Deadline, the first season of Life of Kylie will have eight episodes, a modest start to what could be the next piece of the Kardashian media empire. That makes sense, because if Life of Kylie premieres with two episodes on Aug. 6, its eight episodes will lead perfectly into the 14th season of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, which premieres on Oct. 1.
Since 2007, when the first episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians aired, the family has starred in six spinoffs (Kourtney and Kim Take Miami, Kourtney and Kim Take New York, Khloé & Lamar, Kourtney and Khloé Take The Hamptons, Dash Dolls, and Rob & Chyna), so Life of Kylie is just the latest of many. Over that decade, the family has gone from reality TV stars, to tabloid fixtures, to some of the biggest forces in social media. Kylie, who was literally nine years old in 2007, has, in the last few years, used Instagram and Snapchat the same way her sisters bared their souls (and banal daily routines) on TV in order to become an incredibly popular celebrity, back when Kylie was just a fifth grader with an uncanny talent for pole dancing.
But Kylie's incredible success on her own actually raises a few questions about how Life of Kylie will distinguish itself. Jeff Olde, EVP of Programming at E!, told Deadline that the series will be "an inside look at her everyday life," but Kylie's fans are already afforded a look into her everyday life for a few mintues a day whenever she broadcasts live to her millions of followers about what she and her friends are doing and thinking about. But Kylie clearly thinks this is going to be a little different. According to Variety, Kylie is executive producing the series, and she said, "this show will allow me to give them a peek inside all of the exciting things I am working on as well as some personal time with friends."
It seems that Kylie's friends and friendships will be the center of Life of Kylie, rather than her family members. Her best friend Jordyn Woods will be a big part of the show, and she's channeling some of the typical experiences she never got to have, like going to the prom like a normal kid. Kylie's entire life in a way has been shaped by KUWTK, and so her way of breaking away is... to also make a reality TV show, but one where instead of being the baby of the family, she's the star.
Kylie Jenner fans can already see how she spends msot of her days, but she promises that her reality show will be different. During the first eight episodes of Life of Kylie, they'll be able to judge for themselves — and see whether the Kardashian-Jenner most famous for giving 30-second glimpses into her glamorous life can sustain a handful of 30+ minute TV episodes.
