Keeping Up With the Kardashians cast
The members of the Kardashian-Jenner family are the heart of the show.
Kim Kardashian was considered the original lead of the show. She’s the second oldest Kardashian sibling and has had pivotal plotlines on the show since it debuted.
Khloe Kardashian is the second youngest Kardashian sibling. Much of the show has centered around her personal life in the past few seasons.
Kourtney Kardashian is the oldest Kardashian sibling. While she’s been a series regular since the beginning, she’s made it very clear in recent years that she’s no longer interested in being a part of the show.
Rob Kardashian is the youngest Kardashian sibling and the only boy. While he appeared on the show more regularly in the beginning, he’s rarely been on in more recent seasons.
Kendall Jenner is a model and the older of the two Jenner daughters. While Kendall is on the show every season, it’s pretty infrequent.
Kylie Jenner is the youngest of the entire Kardashian-Jenner clan. She has also been on the show since the beginning but isn’t in every episode.
Kris Jenner is the matriarch of the Kardashian-Jenner family. She has Kim, Khloe, Kourtney and Rob with her late ex-husband, Robert Kardashian, and Kendall and Kylie with her ex, Caitlyn Jenner.
Caitlyn Jenner (formerly Bruce Jenner) is Kris’ ex and the father of Kylie and Kendall. While she was in the show more regularly in the beginning, she began appearing less frequently after publicly coming out as a transgender woman in 2015.
Technically, Scott Disick isn’t a family member, but Kourtney’s now-ex and the father of her children has been on the show since it started in 2007.

KUWTK facts and FAQs
Was Keeping up With the Kardashians canceled?
No, the show wasn’t canceled. The Kardashian-Jenner family decided to stop filming.
So, why did Keeping up With the Kardashians end?
Kim told Grazia USA that the family needed a break. “Sometimes we just need a break. It’s really simple. We just need a minute to regroup,” she said. “You know, we haven’t had a break for 14 years. We’ve gone in filming a season, then a spin off and I think there’s no other way to say it other than, we just live such big lives. And we have kids now. And they need us.”
How many Kardashians are there?
If you count the number of people on the show with the last name “Kardashian,” there are four Kardashians—Kourtney, Kim, Khloe and Rob.
Did Kourtney quit KUTWK?
Not exactly. Over the past few years, Kourtney has made it very clear that she wasn’t exactly thrilled to be filming the show. She also said on Twitter in March 2020 that she quit the show.
That said, Kourtney is featured heavily in the final season of KUWTK, which was shot after that tweet. So…technically, it doesn’t seem like she quit.
Why did Rob quit KUWTK?
It’s not entirely clear, but Kim said in 2019 that her brother waffles on filming. “He has his moods. Sometimes he’s like, ‘Look, I didn’t sign up for this’ and then he’s like, ‘I’m cool to do it’” she said on Watch What Happens Live.
But come on, is KUWTK scripted?
No one in the family has actually come out and said that the show is scripted, but it’s been heavily suggested. Court documents from Kim’s divorce from Kris Humphries that were obtained by Life & Style included a deposition from producer Russell Jay in which he said that at least two scenes that featured Kris were reshot or scripted. Kim also said on Ashley Graham’s Pretty Big Deal podcast that she watches and approves of edits for every episode. “I’m not in the actual editing room but I watch every cut and every edit,” she said. “And that, I think, has always been the magic to being ourselves and showing everything, because we know that we could really have a say in it.”
Who is the richest in Keeping Up With the Kardashians?
Kim is currently the wealthiest member of the Kardashian-Jenner family. She’s worth $780 million thanks to her cosmetics line, KKW Beauty, SKIMS underwear, mobile apps and emojis.
Were Kim Kardashian’s weddings on Keeping Up With the Kardashians?
Two out of three of Kim’s weddings were on the show—her wedding to Kris and her wedding to Kanye. Kim’s marriage to music producer Damon Thomas happened before the show aired.
What other Kardashian weddings were on KUWTK?
The show also featured the wedding of Khloe to Lamar in 2009.
Is Caitlyn Jenner still on KUWTK?
Caitlyn is no longer a regular on the show. However, she seems to have fond memories of filming. “I have the best home movies in life,” she said on her YouTube channel in September. “I watched all my kids grow up on the network.”
