Keeping Up with the Kardashians is coming in September with more new episodes after the first round of installments saw the Kardashian sisters come to blows. But will Rob Kardashian also be returning to the Kardashians’ hit reality show? Well, Rob’s sister, Khloe Kardashian, has weighed in on the possibility.
Rob Kardashian exited Keeping Up with the Kardashians after Season 13, the same season after which Caitlyn Jenner left. As of Season 16, Rob has been appearing as a guest again, slowly but surely making his way back to the series in which he was once a prominent member. While discussing Rob’s future on the show, Khloe Kardashian told Sirius XM:
My brother's coming back around. He's feeling more confident and comfortable. I think he just started a whole new season, so here we go.
There you have it. Rob Kardashian appears to be back in the Keeping Up with the Kardashians saddle, which comes after a few tumultuous years for Rob. The Kardashians’ little brother had a short-lived series titled Rob & Chyna with his then-fiancé Blac Chyna, with whom he shares a daughter, Dream. Blac Chyna ultimately ended up suing the Kardashians over the show's cancellation.
Khloe Kardashian’s information regarding Rob Kardashian’s future on their family’s reality show also hints at Rob recovering his confidence and comfortability. In recent years, Rob’s health has been a subject of numerous headlines, including getting rushed to the hospital back in late 2016.
The update comes as Keeping Up with the Kardashians now has one less sibling to keep up with. Having been with the show since the beginning, the Eldest Kardashian sister, Kourtney, has stepped away from the show, citing a “toxic environment” as the reason for her departure. That news came after Kourtney and her younger sister, Kim Kardashian-West, had a physical fight captured by Keeping Up with the Kardashians’ cameras. A fight their mother, Kris Jenner, had an intensely emotional reaction to seeing play out between her daughters.
In terms of Rob Kardashian, his return comes as Keeping Up with the Kardashians has had to get creative to return, as the series has had to get creative to shoot more Season 18 episodes under quarantine. A crew was even brought in to set up areas ready for filming so that footage could still be produced in the manner that fans are used to.
Rob Kardashian is clearly game for a return, but just how long he decides to stick around for Keeping Up with Kardashians seems to be open-ended. Still, from what Khloe Kardashian said, it sounds pretty hopeful that fans will see him back on their screens again.
Keeping Up with the Kardashians will be back as one of this fall’s premieres on E! in September, though an exact return date for Season 18 is still pending.
