Don't expect the selfies, belfies, or drama to stop anytime soon! The Kardashian family has signed a new $100 million deal with E! to stay with the network for four more years, sources confirm to Us Weekly. (Page Six was the first to break the news.) It is the network's highest deal to date.
Matriarch and momager Kris Jenner negotiated the deal, an insider tells Us. The source adds, "This has been in the works for almost a year. Kris is a fierce negotiator. They were not planning on leaving E!, but she was playing major hardball and threatening to leave. E! needs them."
It was negotiated for Kim, Khloe, and Kourtney Kardashian and their younger half-sisters Kendall and Kylie Jenner to appear on four more seasons of Keeping Up With the Kardashians and the spin-off series. Dad Bruce Jenner was not included in the list. The former Olympian is exiting Keeping Up With the Kardashians after the upcoming season 10.
As previously reported, Jenner will have his own show on the network that will center around his transition from male to female. Also not included in the deal is Kim's husband Kanye West, though he will continue to appear on the show.
The deal doesn't limit the family to their own reality show. Khloe has served as a post-awards show host and fashion correspondent during this past awards season, and Page Six notes that Kim will likely be producing future shows.
The network is also eyeing the youngest Kardashian-Jenner siblings for future projects thanks to Kendall's modeling career and Kylie's plans to become an actress.
