When will Keeping Up with the Kardashians return in 2020 with Season 18?

I think I speak for all Keeping Up with the Kardashians fans that it has officially been one Sunday too many without them! When does Season 18 premiere?

*UPDATE* Keeping Up with the Kardashians Season 18 premieres Thursday, March 16. 

As fun and exciting as the Super Bowl was, we are missing our weekly does of laughs and drama in Keeping Up with the Kardashians. Season 17 wrapped late last year, and it featured some of the most intense moments and life-changing situations for our favorite family. What waits for us is even more drama and we’ll be out one family member — Kourtney Kardashian.

That’s right. I’m sure you all remember that Kourtney feels she needs a break and will not be starring in Season 18. The full scoop is that we will all still definitely see Kourt pop up in an episode or two, just as Kendall and Kylie do, but she won’t be featured nearly as much as Kim and Khloe. We’ll miss her for sure, but the show must go on!

Keeping Up with the Kardashians premiered on E! on Oct. 14, 2007, and it is showing no signs of stopping any time soon! With or without Kourtney, after Season 17 successful seasons, KUWTK continues! But when, exactly?

When does KUWTK Season 18 premiere on E!: After checking out the debut dates for all previous 17 seasons, there appears to be an average of a six-month gap between seasons. Some are four, some are five, but six seems to be the most popular amount of time between each season. Therefore, if the pattern continues, we can expect to see Season 18 premiere on or before June, 15 2020. For our sake, let’s hope it’s before June!

Rumor has it, shooting is currently happening, so I wouldn’t be surprised if, not only will it be here before we know it, but if a teaser drops soon! And what do you know, Kourtney is the one who was spotted filming. Don’t get too excited, though, she could just be there for the kids or in one of her few episodes this coming season.
