The new pact will keep the family on the air through 2020.
The Kardashians are staying put at E! The reality TV family has inked a rich new multiyear deal with the NBCUniversal cabler, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.
"We recently celebrated the milestone 10th anniversary of Keeping Up With the Kardashians on E! We have aired 13 wildly successful seasons of the franchise as well as 11 spinoffs, and season 14 is off to a strong start," a network spokesperson said Tuesday (Oct. 24) in a statement. We are incredibly proud of our partnership with the Kardashians and they remain an important part of the E! family. We look forward to continuing our collaboration for years to come."
An inside source said the deal runs through 2020 but disputed the $150 million-dollar price tag reported by TMZ, instead estimating the new pact is south of $100 million. Since its 2007 launch, the unscripted series has expanded from a half-hour to an hourlong format and has also launched several spinoffs for the family, including Kourtney and Kim Take Miami, Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami, Kourtney & Kim Take the Hamptons, Khloe & Lamar, Dash Dolls, I Am Cait, Rob & Chyna and Life With Kylie.
