As the premiere date of America’s most famous family’s new reality series approaches, it turns out Caitlyn Jenner will not be starring.
Despite the lack of Caitlyn’s feature on “The Kardashians,” there is no bad blood, and she wishes her family the best.
The “I Am Cait” star took to social media to express how she watched the Kardashian-Jenner clan grow on the show and how happy she was to be a part of it.
Caitlyn Jenner Details Watching Family’s Growth, Ahead Of New Series Premiere
The world will be able to catch all the drama from the Kardashian-Jenner gang when their new series airs on Hulu on April 14.
Although Caitlyn will not be starring in the show, as she did most of the seasons on “Keeping Up With The Kardashians,” she positively responded to the news.
In the late hours of Thursday, March 10, the “Can’t Stop The Music” star quoted a tweet from Variety’s cover story of the renowned family regarding the upcoming series.
Caitlyn tweeted that she was present from the first day “KUWTK” premiered and watched the show grow. She admitted that shooting the series for almost 20 seasons was one of the highlights of her life. She continued:
“To be able to work with my family for all those years, connect with the fans, it was incredible. Happy that it continues for my family.”
Caitlyn was a permanent cast member on “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” when it aired in 2007 and showed up in some episodes before it ended in 2021.
The Republican, who participated in the gubernatorial elections in California last year, also led two seasons of a reality series, “I Am Cait,” following her 2015 transition.
I was there when this started from day one. I watched it grow. And doing the show for almost 20 seasons was one of the highlights of my life. To be able to work with my family for all those years, connect with the fans, it was incredible. Happy that it continues for my family. https://t.co/NDd2jJaQQE

Last March, the 72-year-old told ET about her time on “KUWTK.” She noted that the family’s closeness on the well-acclaimed series helped them bond. They also survived tough times and had memorable discussions together. She gushed:
“Over ten years, I did the show. I really enjoyed doing the show. It really brought my family close together. We’ve been through a lot together. I think I have some of the best conversations with my kids on camera. It was a great experience.”
In a candid interview that the Kardashian-Jenner clan had with Variety, they confirmed that she would not appear on the upcoming Hulu show.
Another absentee from the permanent cast list of the new series is the only son of the Kardashian family, Rob. He is known for abstaining from many of the “KUWTK” seasons, though audiences might eventually see him in a cameo.
The booked and busy family also revealed that they shot scenes for “The Kardashians” separately to allow for faster production, unlike in “KUWTK,” where they gathered together often.
The publication learned that the upcoming Hulu show is a more premium version of the family’s former program and will consist of two 20-episode seasons.
The Kardashian-Jenner family offers a documentary-style show with futuristic opening scenes shot by drones. Fans can also look forward to the gang addressing tabloid issues.
“The Kardashians” first season delves into Kim’s tumultuous dissolution of marriage with Kanye “Ye” West and her new romance with “Saturday Night Live” comedian Pete Davidson.
The “I Am Cait” Star Talks Subpar Relationship With Kris Jenner
Caitlyn got another taste of the reality TV life on “Big Brother VIP” in 2021. There, she got candid about how she wishes things were much better between her and her ex-wife.
The Blast disclosed that, on the series, the 72-year-old explained that things weren’t perfect following the aftermath of her 2017 tell-all book “The Secrets of My Life,” which depicted the momager in a negative light.
That year, Caitlyn became estranged from Kris but later patched things up with her and their children. Yet she wishes they would be much closer. She explained:
“I would say from my standpoint. Our relationship is not as good as it should be. I don’t have any hard feelings towards her [Kris], I wish it were closer, but it’s not.”
Caitlyn clarified that her relationship with her former spouse is okay, but getting along better and without tension would benefit their kids.
