The Kardashian-Jenners just landed a reported $100 million deal that will see Keeping up with the Kardashians on the air for four more years (through 2019). Kim Kardashian, Khloé Kardashian and Kourtney Kardashian, Kendall, Kylie and Kris Jenner were part of the deal inked with the network.
Page Six broke the news. A source says: “You’ll be seeing a lot more of the Kardashian family. This is a huge deal, which will see their involvement with the network and its digital properties expand well into the future.”
Another source told Us Weekly, they achieved the deal after threatening to move from E! to another network. “This has been in the works for almost a year,” says the source. “Kris is a fierce negotiator. They were not [really] planning on leaving E!, but she was playing major hardball and threatening to leave. E! needs them.” In short, at this point, E! needs the Kardashians more than the Kardashians need E!.
Previously, it was reported that following the crash that resulted in a death Bruce Jenner’s transition show is on hold. Moreover, TMZ reports that the girls feel Bruce doesn’t come around anymore so they’re phasing him out of the show and out of their real lives too (Us claims Bruce isn’t involved in upcoming seasons of KUWTK at all). Kanye is not part of the deal. Producer Ryan Seacrest, the show’s creator, will reportedly do well from the deal.
