Still keeping up with the Kardashians? Between Kayne West’s very public meltdown, Kim’s highly-publicized fling (and subsequent split) with comedian Pete Davidson, it’s been hard not to keep up.

Despite the Kardashians permanently inhabiting the front page of news and gossip sites, the Royal Family of Reality Television did hit a huge milestone in 2021 when their 15-year reign concluded with the twentieth and final season of Keeping Up with the Kardashians. After a decade and a half of strained family dynamics and scripted-not-scripted drama, you would think they would be looking forward to some time away from the cameras and flashing lights. But in the end, the Keeping Up finale turned out to be less of a farewell to audiences and more of a classy breakup with E! Entertainment, the home network of the long-running series.

Almost as soon as the final episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians aired, a sleek reboot of the series was announced for Hulu (and Disney Plus globally,) simply named The Kardashians.

It was kind of like throwing yourself a farewell party only to move to a bigger house two doors down.

With four seasons under their Balenciaga belt, The Kardashians are set to drop their fifth season in 23 May 2024. It will be interesting to see. Things have been suspiciously quiet in the Kardashian family since all that Kanye West and Pete Davidson stuff died down. 

How to watch The Kardashians in Australia

The Kardashians Season 5 arrives in May.

Given Hulu now belongs to Disney, the Kardashians are effectively residing in one wing of the House of Mouse. Here in Australia, we don’t have the streaming service Hulu but we do have a way to watch Hulu content with Disney Plus.

All four current seasons of The Kardashians  are already available to stream on Disney Plus but there's a fifth season coming in hot. And if that's not enough to quench your thirst for juicy drama, there's also a once-off ABC News special (also titled The Kardashians) that explores the family's history through rarely seen home video footage, also available on Disney Plus.

When does The Kardashians Season 5 release in Australia?


Disney recently announced that Season 5 of The Kardashians will premiere on Thursday the 23rd of May on Disney Plus in Australia. Perfect timing now that Shogun has wrapped up (and yes, the Venn diagram between those two audiences is just one flat circle.)

What is The Kardashians about?

Well, that’s a tricky question to answer with any specificity. There might be some slight differences to the format and season structure when compared to Keeping Up with the Kardashians but at the end of the day, you're getting the same TV show with fewer words to type in with your television remote. 

Here’s the show’s synopsis from Hulu’s website:

The family you know and love is here with a brand new series, giving an all-access pass into their lives. Kris, Kourtney, Kim, Khloé, Kendall, and Kylie bring the cameras back to reveal the truth behind the headlines. From the intense pressures of running billion-dollar businesses to the hilarious joys of playtime and school drop-offs, this series brings viewers into the fold with a rivetingly honest story of love & life in the spotlight.

What is Disney+ Star?


If you only ever tried Disney+ out at launch, when the service was more family-focused, you might not have been around for the introduction of Star. When the service got a price hike to $11.99 per month (now $13.99 per month for standard or $17.99 per month for premium) early in 2021, it also received a whole new library of more mature TV shows and movies courtesy of Hulu and Fox. Ever since, Disney+ subscribers have enjoyed some of the latest originals from Hulu as well as access to some long-running classics, like Grey’s Anatomy.
