The Kardashians on Hulu returned for its second season on Thursday, September 22, and the famous sisters have a lot on their plates this time around. 

While fans get a glimpse of exciting milestones—Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker's wedding, brand launches, Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson's romance (which has, sadly, since come to an end)—The Kardashians season 2 also features a few difficult moments, most notably the arrival of Khloé Kardashian's son amid Tristian Thompson's infidelity and momager Kris Jenner's health scare. 

If you're curious about what comes next for the family, we'll tell you everything you need to know. Hulu, we're ready for our Kardash screen time

When does 'The Kardashians' on Hulu start? 

On April 14, The Kardashians on Hulu debuted and kept fans busy every Thursday evening. Like new SKIMS launches (SKIMS cotton fleece, anyone?), the series didn't keep its viewers waiting for long. 

Season two made its return to the streamer on September 22, the first day of fall. Are we surprised that there's such an effortless turnaround with the Kar-Jenners? Not in the slightest—Kris has it all down to a science.

Along with streaming on Hulu, The Kardashians will be available on Disney+. 

Watch 'The Kardashian' on Hulu trailers:

When the official trailer dropped for season one, it appeared all of the sisters were going through transitional phases in their love lives and careers. Plus, they got kind of used to their privacy. 

"Life without cameras was a big change for us," Kourt admits in the teaser. 

But, in true Kardashian fashion, they quickly became reacquainted with the ins and outs of reality TV.

"I think it's time we see a whole new side of the family," Kendall adds. 

The two-minute clip gives us a glimpse at what we can expect from the new reality show, from get-togethers to big reveals, including Kylie's second pregnancy, Khloé and Tristan's "complicated" relationship status and Kourtney and Travis' engagement

The story continues in season two, showing how those pivotal moments progressed, but it can't be smooth sailing 24/7. In fact, we can expect to see a few vulnerable moments of worry and confusion. 

Despite ups and downs, "seasons change, but sisters are forever."

What will 'The Kardashians' on Hulu be about?

After 15 years and 20 seasons, the family's E! series Keeping Up with the Kardashians came to a close. Now the family is ready to introduce fans to a new chapter on a new platform. 

We've got the public nightmare of Kanye harassing Kim, the fact that Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker are engaged and, of course, Kylie and Travis' relationship timeline, given that their new little one has just arrived. (What is Kylie Jenner's son's name? We still don't know.) 

There are plenty of other areas that need attention as well: Kendall Jenner and Devin Booker's love live, Kourtney and Scott's never-ending saga and so on. 

Needless to say, juicy material abounds. 

Why did the Kardashians leave E!?

In October 2020, a month after the Kardashians announced on their social media accounts that they would be ending their contract with E! and wrapping up Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Hulu revealed that the family signed a major multiyear deal to create new content for the streaming service. 

Kris Jenner did speak about their decision during the KUWTK reunion episode, saying it felt natural after 20 seasons with E!—especially given that their contract was up.

"I think we were all feeling a little overwhelmed, we had done it for so long," she said. "When I discussed it with each one of the girls and then as a group, Kim was somebody who said 'You know what, 20 is a really nice, beautiful number. Why don't we do the last season and see how we feel?'"

But it seems the family was keen to return, with their new The Kardashians show on Hulu. Speaking at a Disney event in May 2021, Kris further detailed that the platform is the perfect place to begin this new chapter, considering it houses all of the Keeping Up with the Kardashians content we've been watching for the past 15 years. 

"I can’t say much about what’s coming but, spoiler: we’re going to look fabulous and everyone’s going to watch," Jenner said. 

Once again, Mama Kris was right!
