The power of K. The Kardashian clan has been through plenty of headline-making ups and downs in the past few months, but in the first trailer for the upcoming season of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, the women of the family make it clear that family is what keeps them going.

“There’s a lot of people telling me what to do,” Kendall Jenner kicks off the season 12 clip in a voiceover. “And I can’t let that get in the way of me and my family.”

Kim Kardashian agrees, offering her own soundbite.

“The power of family really means everything,” the mother of two says.

Khloé Kardashian then weighs in with her sage wisdom.

“We are sisters by blood but best friends by choice,” she says. “I don’t know how I would live my life without my family. It’s the best support system in the world.”

In the short clip, the girls are bombarded by paparazzi, take selfies together, and shed a few tears (in one quick snippet, Kourtney Kardashian and ex Scott Disick look like they’re having an intense conversation; in another, family matriarch Kris Jenner is teary eyed.)

In this past year, Kourtney, 36, has split with Disick, 32; Kim, 35, has given birth to her second child, Saint, with husband Kanye West; Khloé, 31, has been by estranged husband Lamar Odom’s side after he was hospitalized; Kendall, 20, walked in her first Victoria’s Secret fashion show; and Kylie, 18, has made headlines with her off-and-on romance with boyfriend Tyga
