The Kardashians’ much-anticipated new reality series finally drops on the Disney-owned subscription service Hulu next week.
The family made the decision to end their old show Keeping Up With The Kardashians after 20 seasons in 2021 before signing a new deal with Hulu.
It’s set to be rawer than ever, taking fans behind the scenes of Kim, Kourtney, Khloé, Kendall, Kylie and Kris’ lives.
As reported by Deadline, the show’s official description reads: “Kris, Kourtney, Kim, Khloé, Kendall and Kylie bring the cameras back to reveal the truth behind the headlines.”
“From the intense pressures of running billion-dollar businesses to the hilarious joys of playtime and school drop-offs, this series brings viewers into the fold with a honest story of love & life in the spotlight,” it continues.
The new show is one of the biggest deals the family has ever signed, but how much did they paid? Thankfully, Variety has all the scoop…
Here’s how much the Kardashians got paid
Ahead of their new show, the Kardashians did a cover shoot and accompanying interview for Variety in March.
In the interview, Variety revealed that according to insiders, their reality show paycheck, is “worth nine figures”.
That means they are getting paid at least $100 million between them for the new Hulu show.
Khloé told Variety that all family members will earn the same amount, saying: “We are all equals.”
Khloe discusses Hulu deal finances
Khloé continued to speak to Variety about the financial terms of the contract, saying: “It definitely played a factor because we give so much of our personal lives up for entertainment.”
“We always have our private family conversations, and we’re pretty brutal, me and my sisters, with what we will settle for or not settle for. But not all money is good money. It has to be a good fit, and Hulu was just the perfect fit for us,” she continued.
Dana Walden, the Chairman of Entertainment at Walt Disney Television also told Variety that they “very much deserve” the high salary, saying:
“We stepped up to a great deal that they very much deserve. Who would you want more for your unscripted slate than the Kardashians? They perfectly symbolize our strategy, which is taking big shots, but the right shots, and betting on incredible talent and best-in-class opportunities in each genre.”
How to watch The Kardashians
For USA viewers, the first episode of the new show drops on Hulu on Thursday, April 14th.
