When it was announced that Keeping Up with the Kardashians, the famous family's longtime E! reality series, was ending after 20 seasons, fans were worried: how would we all, you know, keep up with the Kardashians? 

Luckily, the business brain that is Kris Jenner was on it with a brand-new show, The Kardashians on Hulu and Disney+, which premiered on Thursday, April 14. And already, the first season of the fam's next chapter is over as quickly as it started—all those Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker makeout sessions really do make time fly, huh? 

But with that "to be continued" cliffhanger lingering over the end of season 1, fans are already clamoring to know: when will we get to see season 2 of The Kardashians? Here's what we know so far. 

When is season 2 of 'The Kardashians' coming out?

Though there is no official release date just get for The Kardashians season 2, that "to be continued" card that popped up right before the credits rolled suggests that we'll definitely be seeing more from the Kardashian-Jenner clan on Hulu. 

According to a Hulu press release (opens in new tab) from April 2022, "the family signed up for two seasons, with 40 episodes slated overall."

The family is publicly pushing for more seasons—at The Kardashians premiere back in April, Kris Jenner joked to The Hollywood Reporter (opens in new tab) that she wanted "another 20" seasons of family-focused reality TV to round it off to 40 total, "a nice even number." Superstar daughter Kim Kardashian concurred: "I hope another 20, right? If we’re going to do it, we’re going to do it."

Given that the O.G. Kardashians series always featured two seasons per calendar year, it would be safe to assume that we'll get another batch of episodes by the end of 2022. Stay tuned!

How many episodes in 'The Kardashians' are there overall?

Compared to Keeping Up with the Kardashians—whose episode count fluctuated per season, from as little as six to as many as 21—The Kardashians season one featured ten episodes, with each hovering around the 45-minute mark.

That gave plenty of room for the family's usual amount of spectacle, from the beginnings of Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson's odd-couple romance to Kourtney Kardashian's IVF journey, from Kendall Jenner slicing a cucumber like an undercover alien to Khloé's baby-daddy drama with perpetual cheater Tristan Thompson. 

We already know that there will likely be at least one wedding (Kourt and Travis have hosted three to date), a baby (will we ever find out Kylie Jenner's son's name?) and a Met Gala to cover in season two, but who knows what else these people will get up to?! Will Kete (Pim?) finally make an onscreen appearance? (There is a little post-credits cameo in the finale, so check that out!)

When was 'The Kardashians' filmed?

The first season of The Kardashians was filmed from September 2021 through January 2022, airing about four months later. So, if social-media sleuths are correct, the family should be filming about now for season two, if a batch of new episodes is going to hit by year's end. Fingers crossed!

What happened in 'The Kardashians' season finale?

At the end of the penultimate episode of The Kardashians season one, Kim gets word that Tristan Thompson, Khloé's off-again, on-again boyfriend and the father of her daughter True, is embroiled in a legal battle with a woman that he reportedly impregnated on the night of his 30th birthday—which Khloé hosted for him.

Unsurprisingly, the bulk of the season finale deals with the very public betrayal. “I find out what Tristan is doing with the rest of the world,” Khloé says in a confessional. “A courtesy would be not doing it, but fine, if you do it, you’re not even going to give me a heads-up before the rest of the world? It’s just an additional slap in my face. It’s humiliating.” By the end of the episode, she's packing up his stuff from her home. 

The finale does manage to sprinkle in some lighter moments, including a scene of Kendall emerging from a $23,000 hyperbaric chamber in her at-home wellness room ("For the past couple years I’ve been, like, really just loving health!"), Kim failing to get a usable Christmas card with her kids because North keeps giving the camera the middle finger, and Kris recording a cover of "Jingle Bells" while Kourtney and Travis play tonsil hockey in the corner. Because of course they do.
