How to watch The Kardashians new series when it premieres in April
If you’re still Keeping Up with the Kardashians in 2022, you’ll find them on a new show (and a new streaming platform) this April.
Still keeping up with the Kardashians? Between Kayne West’s very public meltdown, Kim’s highly-publicized fling with comedian Pete Davidson and being Josh Sadie’s muse when he wrote Unkah Jams, 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 last year 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 the family 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, simply named The Kardashians.
It was kind of like throwing yourself a farewell party only to move to a bigger house two doors down.
How to watch The Kardashians in Australia
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+ Star, a new home for more mature content on the streaming service.
Disney has confirmed that the new series, The Kardashians, will be available on Disney+ Star in Australia when it releases.
All pricing and deal information on this page is accurate at the date of publish.
When does The Kardashians premiere in Australia?
Disney recently announced that Hulu’s The Kardashians will premiere on Friday the 14th of April 2022 here in Australia.
At the time of writing, there are no further details on how many episodes the first season of The Kardashians will have or whether they will all be available to stream day-and-date or whether new episodes will be released each week.
What is The Kardashians about?
Well, that’s a tricky question to answer with any specificity. On one hand, very few details about the new series have been revealed, but on the other, it’s called The Kardashians which sounds pretty self-explanatory. There might be some slight differences to the format and season structure but at the end of the day, it sounds like we’re just getting more Keeping Up with the Kardashians with fewer words to type in with our TV remote.
Here’s the show’s synopsis from Hulu’s website:
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 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.
