Season 3 cast members include Kris Jenner, Kourtney Kardashian Barker, Kim Kardashian, Khloé Kardashian, Kendall Jenner, and Kylie Jenner. The series is executive produced alongside Ben Winston, Emma Conway and Elizabeth Jones. Danielle King serves as showrunner and executive producer. Jenner, Kardashian Barker, Kim and Khloé, Kendall and Kyle also serve as executive producers on the series.
In a press release, Hulu noted that the season one premiere was the most-watched premiere in the streaming service’s history and the most-watched unscripted series in the show’s history.
With the Writers Guild of America (WGA) on strike against the Association of Motion Picture and Television Producers (AMPTP), it seems logical why Hulu would order even more popular unscripted reality shows. During the previous WGA strike in 2007, the networks doubled down on non-scripted reality shows. Even though reality TV has writers, since the shows are “not scripted,” they are outside the jurisdiction of the WGA. However, the WGA has struggled in the past to try to get a piece of reality programming.
The series first debuted on streamers in April 2022, and since then has had two seasons and 20 episodes. Hulu ordered the series after announcing that their previous hit, E! reality show, “Keeping Up With the Kardashians.” The series ran for 20 seasons, 14 years and 280 episodes on the network. The show ended in 2021.
Besides that The Hollywood Reporter noted that Kim and Khloe Kardashian appeared at the 2023 Disney Upfront this week to announce new episodes of the series. THR reports that unscripted sports and news programming took up most of the show, with Jesse Palmer from “The Bachelorette” introducing Disney reality shows.
The Season 3 trailer focuses on Kim dealing with the aftermath of her divorce from rapper Kanye West. They got married in 2014 and filed for divorce in 2021. They have four children together.
It looks like the new season will also feature Khloe having undergone skin cancer treatment and having a tumor removed from her face. The first two seasons of “The Kardashians” are now available on Hulu.
