Cape Town – Keep the K coming: Reality television’s first family, the Kardashians from Calabasas have signed a new three year contract with E! Entertainment (DStv 124) worth just under $100m, keeping the show on the air until at least 2020.

The show was last renewed in 2015.

Website, The Blast, broke the news late on Tuesday night of the new Kardashian deal pegged at $150 million, although industry insiders and American trade publications all say it's closer to just under $100m. E! confirmed the contract extension but didn’t want to reveal an amount.

The family will decide for themselves how the money is split between the various Kardashians appearing on the show. 

Although ratings for Keeping Up with the Kardashians keeps falling – now on the air for a decade and 14 seasons – the show is still lucrative for E! with the various Kardashian members who continue to make news with their drama-filled lives.

E!, confirming the deal, said in a statement: “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.

“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.”
