Kardashians Ink Megabucks Renewal Deal With E! Through 2020

The Kardashians are staying put at E! for at least another three years, Variety has confirmed — and they don’t come cheap.

The network has extended the famous family’s contract for all-things-Kardashian, including the flagship series “Keeping Up With the Kardashians.” An insider says the renewal deal will take the show through 2020 and amounts to “below $100 million,” though E! declined to comment.

When contacted by Variety, an E! spokesperson confirmed the network had extended their deal with the Kardashian-Jenners, but would not elaborate on any terms of the deal.

“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,” an E! spokesperson tells Variety. “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.”

E! last renewed the Kardashian family’s contract in February 2015.

The new extension was first reported by The Blast, though the site reports the Kardashians re-signed through 2019 for a whopping $150 million — our source says that number is far off, and says the family has actually renewed through 2020.

Speaking to Variety about the “KUWTK” 10-year anniversary recently, Kris Jenner admitted she has never had a discussion about ending the show, saying, “I think the show is an amazing foundation for everything else we do.”

Last month, E! president Adam Stotsky told Variety, “What I can tell you is, it’s a very effective, collaborative working relationship that we have with them that we’re looking forward to continuing for the foreseeable future.”
