Where can you watch The Kardashians in Australia?
The new series has been filmed exclusively for Hulu, the American streaming service known for epic shows like The Handmaid’s Tale, Only Murders In The Building and Little Fires Everywhere. Much like those other shows, the reality series has been picked up by an alternate streaming service for international release.
The Kardashians will be available to stream on Disney Plus, which makes sense considering Hulu is actually majority-owned by The Walt Disney Company. The more you know, right?
If you're not already signed up to Disney Plus, you can sign up here for just $11.99 per month.
When does The Kardashians premiere in Australia?
There’s no official premiere date just yet, but Khloé Kardashian previously hinted it could drop in early 2022. Sharing that the show would likely premiere "soon" in an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
"I think in a few months, either end of January, early February," she said. "That's the beauty of Hulu, we're streaming, and we get to have a much quicker turn around than previously. We're really excited."
Why did the family want to stop filming KUWTK?
It’s no secret that family feuds had become a central – often toxic – part of the KUWTK story. Remember when Kim said Kourtney was the least interesting to look at? Remember when Kourtney fought with her sisters almost every single episode about family responsibility? Remember when Kim busted her pseudo “brother in law” Scott Disick with another woman in a hotel suite?
There was a lot of drama and, according to the unofficial head of the family Kim Kardashian, that’s what they wanted to stop. Instead they'll be focusing on the sister's many different businesses and, of course, Momager Kris Jenner.
"It will be a different side," she told The Wall Street Journal in October. "But I wouldn't say that our silly sides are not going to come out."
What can fans expect from The Kardashians?
Unlike the personal storylines of KUWTK (which some family members like Kendall Jenner had begun to pull away from) many of The Kardashians plotlines will focus on the sister's business endeavors.
"This is the next chapter," Kris revealed at Disney's Upfronts virtual presentation in May 2021. "In the new show, you'll see us evolving as a family, fans want us to be who we are and since moment one, they've been emotionally invested in our show just like we are."
But it's not all board meetings and Kylie Cosmetics brand strategy. Eagle-eyed fans may already know from the engagement photos, but Kourtney and her fiancé Travis Barker filmed their engagement and family celebrations for the show in October.
There's also a chance that the relationship drama between Khloé and Tristan Thompson - who, as of publishing, has just confirmed he "fathered a child" with another woman - could play out on screen. Or maybe Kim's new romance with Pete Davidson will get some air-time. But we doubt it if they're aiming for a new "drama free" show.
Meanwhile, as she prepares to welcome her second child with rapper Travis Scott, an expectant Kylie Jenner appears in the trailer and will likely have some of her pregnancy journey documented on the show.
"Happy New Year," the family say in unison in the short teaser.
"New year, new show, new beginnings. Are you ready to get closer than ever before?" the teaser reads.
We sure are ready! Stay tuned for more updates on The Kardashians.
