The news that "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" will be coming to an end in 2021 after a remarkable and largely unprecedented 14 year run on television sent shock waves through the entertainment community as well as millions of fans who have become used to seeing the family's trademark shenanigans on cable every week. 

Now, Khloé Kardashian has spoken to People about her true feelings regarding the show's end and what she sees herself and her family doing going forward.

'It's Really Bittersweet'

"It's really bittersweet. We've been on for 20 seasons. We've had so many spinoffs, and we absolutely love, love, love the show," she led off her discussion with the publication by mentioning, maintaining that the departure has nothing to do with a decline in success, just a conscious decision from the family as a whole.

Then, the 36-year-old dropped the bombshell news that "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" was allegedly a "filler" show only chosen to replace another program that had untimely fallen through.

How The Show Almost Didn't Happen

"I mean, we were not even supposed to be on TV," the reality star went on to say. "Another show fell through, so we were filler for the network and we were told actually, 'Don't get too comfortable. You're just filler.'"

Clearly, the "filler" turned into the network's biggest success story, and the family soon after realized the permanence of their program once the ratings came in and the sisters became bona-fide stars. They've continued to enjoy the same, if not increasing levels of success since that fateful moment.

"But definitely it's nostalgic," she added in her reminiscing on the last decade and a half of reality television fame. "It's sad still. It's bittersweet."

The Kardashian family dominated television for a majority of the 21st century so far, with virtually each member being given their own spin-off content in one way, shape, or form over their tenure on the airwaves.

However, after 20 seasons and hundreds of episodes on the main show alone, it appears it's time to say goodbye to "Keeping Up with the Kardashians."

The news was orignally shared by Kim Kardashian, who posted a touching goodbye letter to the family's namesake program on Instagram

"It is with heavy hearts that we say goodbye to 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians,' We are beyond grateful to all of you who've watched us for all of these years—through the good times, the bad times, the happiness, the tears, and the many relationships and children. We'll forever cherish the wonderful memories and countless people we've met along the way," she wrote at the time.
