E! Confirms That Production Has Been Shut Down On 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians'
October 7, 2016
Following Kim Kardashian‘s scary gunpoint robbery earlier this week, production on Keeping Up With The Kardashian has been shut down indefinitely. A spokesperson from E! tells Us Weekly, “Kim’s well-being is our core focus right now. No decision has been made as to when production will resume.” The hit reality show has been on the air for almost 9 years and is currently in its 12th season.
New episodes will begin airing on October 23rd as planned, however, no new footage has been filmed since the attack. Also, a spokesperson from E! confirmed earlier this week that the show was not filming at the time of the robbery.
The Kardashian-Jenners have certainly been keeping a low profile on social media in the days after the incident. Caitlyn Jenner was the one to break the family silence with an Instagram post on Tuesday, October 5.
The sisters returned to social media the next day. Kourtney Kardashian tweeted a message that may or may not have to do with the robbery, while Kendall and Kylie Jenner resumed their usual posting.

It’s being reported that Kim is questioning her entire brand of “putting it all out there” on social media, which most likely led the robbers to her $4.6 million dollar diamond ring. The rest of the family is also taking a step back from the spotlight with Khloe Kardashian, Kendall and Kylie cancelling upcoming promotional appearances.
However, the family signed a three-season agreement last year for KUWTK which would’ve kept them on the air through 2018. No word yet on whether that contract still stands–watch this space for any updates.
