It is with heavy hearts that we’ve made the difficult decision as a family to say goodbye to Keeping Up with the Kardashians,” according to Kim Kardashian’s Instagram post.

 “After what will be 14 years, 20 seasons, hundreds of episodes and numerous spin-off shows, 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 will forever cherish the wonderful memories and countless people we’ve met along the way. Thank you to the thousands of individuals and businesses that have been a part of this experience and, most importantly, a very special thank you to Ryan Seacrest for believing in us, E! for being our partner, and our production team at Bunim/Murray, who’ve spent countless hours documenting our lives. Our last season will air early next year in 2021. Without Keeping Up with The Kardashians, I would not be where I am today. I am so incredibly grateful to everyone who has watched and supported me and my family these past 14 incredible years. 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.”

We never knew this day would come, but it’s finally here. “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” is a hit reality TV show documenting the life of a huge family with Kris as the mother who raised six daughters: Kourtney, Kim, Khloe, Kendall and Kylie, with frequent appearances by Rob Kardashian and Scott Disick.

The show filmed each of their lives and displayed how they dealt with being famous while sticking together as a family since 2007. Recently, it was announced that the show would be coming to an end after 18 seasons.

Khloe Kardashian wrote the same message on her Instagram page, expressing how much she loved being in the show, but it had to end with all the family signed at the bottom of the message.

Some Central Connecticut students have said they felt shocked and hurt that their favorite show would no longer be there with them.

“I’ve been watching this show since I was so little and it almost became a tradition,” student Sofia Boluk said. “The show will be missed dearly. It’s been great.”

Many speculations are going around as to why the show came to an end.

According to Elle, there has been a source saying that Kylie Jenner and Kim Kardashian wanted to quit the show to take care of their kids and partners. Kim has had a lot of drama with Kanye West and wanted to focus on her mental health.

Furthermore, according to Elle, Kourtney Kardashian has already reported that she could not stay in the show because it was a toxic environment for her. Which is why Kris finally decided the show should end.

Senior Melody Zielke expressed her support for the Kardashians and explained why she did so, sharing she thought the hate they received was unnecessary.

“I have always supported the Kardashians/Jenner clan because of a very important reason,” Zielke said. “Kim, Kris, Kourtney and Khloe made their way to the top being female in a man’s world. With their TV show and much different clothing, makeup and perfume lines created on the empire. A lot of people give them hate, yet they have never walked a day in their shoes to know how hard it is to live in the paparazzi camera 24/7.”

Fellow senior, Deena Lavado, said she was completely in shock when she found out the show was ending but has a feeling they will come back.

“I feel sad that the show is ending and I am sure I can speak for all the fans when I say that we did not see this coming,” Lavado said. “But I am looking forward to seeing what new business adventures they will have after the show is over and I am sure they will bring the show back when their kids are older.”

Regardless of whether people hate or love the Kardashians, the show became the reason for their popularity. Many people around the world were entertained, which resulted in a total of 18 seasons to be produced. The show will be missed by many of their fans who supported them through their fame.

If you have never watched or would like to re-watch the show, it is still available in Hulu. There are also spin-off shows such as “Life of Kylie,” “Kourtney & Kim Take Miami,” “Kourtney & Kim Take New York,” “Khloe & Lamar,” “Dash Dolls,” “Rob & Chyna” as well as recent ones like “Revenge Body” with Khloe and “Flip it Like Disick” with Scott.
