Plot Synopsis

In this reality show, cameras record the glamorous and chaotic world of the Kardashian family. Hollywood party girl Kim Kardashian, daughter of famed O.J. Simpson lawyer Robert Kardashian, and her four sisters -- Kourtney, Khloe, Kendall and Kylie -- struggle to find their place in life while growing up in the hectic household of her social butterfly mother, Kris, and her stepfather, Bruce Jenner. After five seasons of new careers, new love and new family members, the Kardashians made concerted efforts to stay connected in Season 6. Kim finally found her true love with New Jersey Nets star Kris Humphries, and E! presented their wedding in a two-part special, KIM'S FAIRYTALE WEDDING - A KARDASHIAN EVENT, on October 9 & 10, 2011, drawing 10.5 million viewers. Kourtney, a co-owner of the women's boutique D-A-S-H featured on the spinoff series KOURTNEY AND KHLOE TAKE MIAMI, now has a son, Mason Dash Disick, with boyfriend Scott. Khloe, also a co-owner of D-A-S-H, recently married Los Angeles Lakers star Lamar Odom, and their married life was documented in the spinoff series KHLOE AND LAMAR. Kendall and Kylie are just starting their modeling careers, and brother Rob is competing in the Fall 2011 season of DANCING WITH THE STARS. During the sixth season, the family took a long overdue vacation to Bora Bora in honor of Kris and Bruce's 20th wedding anniversary. Away from the red carpets and business meetings, the family was able to have some fun in the sun and share the closeness they had before Kardashian became a household name, but there were issues with the men in their lives. Kris Humphries joined Kim on the trip, and his first foray into a Kardashian vacation wasn't without its rough patches. Plus, Scott found it difficult to enjoy the celebrations in moderation, and he and Rob finally addressed the tension that had been simmering between them since Kim's birthday party in Vegas over a year ago. And mother Kris worried she wasn't aging gracefully, contemplating plastic surgery, but hubby Bruce was there to encourage her to tackle getting older with the same verve she uses in her business endeavors. Despite their spats, the family members came together to support each other, and the three older sisters took the younger ones under their protective wings, with Kim taking Kendall to The Big Apple to help jump-start her burgeoning modeling career.

Season 8, which debuted on E! on Sunday, June 2, 2013 at 9pm ET, chronicled: younger sisters Kendall and Kylie growing up and striving for more independence from each other and the family; Bruce and his sons, Brody and Brandon, making an effort to spend more time together; Khloe facing startling feelings about Kendall and Kylie as they grow into young adults; Kourtney drawing a line in the sand with Scott when he wants to take their relationship to another level; and the impending and anxiously awaited arrival of Kim's first child with Kanye West.

KEEPING UP WITH THE KARDASHIANS returned for its ninth season on Sunday, January 19, 2014 at 9pm ET/PT on E!. In Season 9, the family openly discusses their feelings about Kris and Bruce living apart, and the three older sisters spend more time together than ever, as Kourtney and Kim make it their mission to support Khloe, who faces continuing uncertainty about the future of her marriage to Lamar Odom. Rob commits himself fully to the designer sock business and moves into his own place, while younger sister Kendall contemplates moving into a home of her own as well. On Sunday, June 8, 2014 at 9pm ET/PT, E! broadcast the Season 9 Summer premiere of KEEPING UP WITH THE KARDASHIANS. This summer, the sisters have their sights set on a new location for their DASH boutique in sultry Miami, and can't wait to stay at the luxe Versace Mansion during their trip to the Magic City. As Kim prepares for her big day, she proves that big dreams really do come true when she and her true love grace the cover of the ultimate fashion bible, "Vogue," and show off their beautiful baby girl in its pages. Plus, after a tough year, Khloe is opening her heart to the possibilities of love again.

In the show's tenth season -- which premiered on Sunday, March 15, 2015 at 9pm ET/PT on E! -- bonds are tested as the family navigates changing relationships, now that Kris and Bruce have finalized their divorce. At the start of the season, Kris and Bruce begin to learn what it means to live outside of a longstanding marriage, and how it affects the family as a whole. Wanting to protect their mother from heartache, the girls in the family encircle Kris with love and encourage her to have some fun of her own. Kim finds out conceiving a second child is harder than she thought it would be. Later this season, the family is ready to let loose and spend some quality time during their annual family vacation and head to a winter wonderland for some fun in the snow and ski time. Khloe and Malika also take off on a wild, girls only road trip to get away from it all. KEEPING UP WITH THE KARDASHIANS returned with new episodes on Sunday, September 20, 2015 at 8pm ET/PT on E!.

After months and months of living at Kris' house, Kim has worn out her welcome and is left with no choice but to leave and find another place to live, even though her house is not even near ready. Kylie follows in Kim's footsteps and "breaks the internet" with the launch of her popular lip kits. Kendall is at the peak of her career: launching a clothing line with Kylie, jet setting to different countries for business and pleasure, covering top fashion magazines, and walking in the most revered fashion shows.
