'The Kardashians' on Hulu: Here's a look at who's IN and who's OUT of the show
If the end of 'KUWTK' left a gaping hole in your life, wondering where you'll get your daily dose of Kardashian-infused drama, then fret not, because Hulu's 'The Kardashians' is finally here. Featuring the Kar-Jenners, the logline of the show reads — "The family you know and love is here with a brand new series, giving an all-access pass into their lives. Kris, Kourtney, Kim, Khloe, Kendall, and Kylie bring the cameras back to reveal the truth behind the headlines. From the intense pressure 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."
Since 'KUWTK' ended, a lot has happened — from Kim and Kanye's divorce to her newfound romance with SNL star Pete Davidson, Kourtney's engagement to Travis Barker, and Kylie's second pregnancy, among other things. The show will be featuring all of the above and more, which leads us to the all-important question — who will be part of the series and which notable names might be ditching it all together?

How much did Kardashians get paid for filming 'KUWTK'? Why moving to Hulu is a wise financial move for family
It isn't a Kardashian franchise without Scott Disick, now is it? Kourtney's ex is all set to be a part of the new series. Despite the two having called it quits for a while now and seeing that they both have moved on, the pair share three children together who they co-parent. Tensions are bound to be high between the pair as well, seeing that Disick messaged Kourtney's ex, Younes Bendjima, not too long ago, regarding her PDA with Barker. While Bendjima was quick to shut him down, Kourtney, too, responded and called his actions 'despicable'.
Seeing that the series addresses Kim's new relationship with SNL star Pete Davidson, it also looks at her divorce from rapper Kanye West. West, who seldom appeared in 'KUWTK', makes an appearance in 'The Kardashians' trailer, implying that fans might see an interaction between him and Kim.
The drummer for the band Blink 182 began dating Kourtney back in 2020, and since then, it has been a whirlwind of a romance. The pair got engaged in 2021 and now are currently trying to have a child together, as Kourtney explains in the trailer of the series.
Seeing that the series also features Kylie's pregnancy, which she admits is a lot more public than her first one, fans can also expect to see Travis Scott. Although his appearance on the show remains unconfirmed, Scott is the father of both Stormi and Kylie's second child. So as her pregnancy plays out on screen, Scott will likely be by her side.
Tristan Thompson and Khloe's on-again-off-again relationship has been a subject of speculation in the public eye, but it looks like the two are trying to make things work, seeing that they have a daughter together. However, while the trailer sees Khloe talk about 'trust', fans shouldn't bet on the couple, seeing that in December 2021, Thompson admitted to cheating on Khloe yet again, as he fathered a son with a woman named Maralee Nichols.
Kylie Jenner's son — Wolf Jacques Webster
With the series featuring Kylie's pregnancy, there is a high possibility that her son, who was previously named Wolf Jacques Webster, will make his debut on the show. The series might also reveal his real name, seeing that he is no longer Wolf Jacques Webster, but his current name remains unknown.
Although a staple on the initial seasons of 'KUWTK', Rob has long opted to stay out of the limelight and it looks like he plans on keeping it that way. As reported by HollywoodLife, he has no intention of being a part of the show. “Rob will NOT be appearing in their Hulu show because he does not want his life or the life of his daughter to be a part of it. Everyone respects this decision,” HollywoodLife reported, as per an inside source. “Doing the show with E! caused him nothing but pain and hardships as he had several hospitalizations,” the source added.
Caitlyn Jenner, who shares Kylie and Kendall with Kris Jenner from her second marriage will not be a part of the show. As per tweets put out by her, she expressed that she was not given the "opportunity" to be a part of it. "I was there when this started from day one. I watched it grow. And doing the show for almost 20 seasons was one of the highlights of my life. To be able to work with my family for all those years, connect with the fans, it was incredible. Happy that it continues for my family." she said in a tweet. She followed it up by adding — "Of course at the same time it is unfortunate to not be given the opportunity to continue with the show. With that said, I cannot emphasize enough how happy I am for my family that it continues!"

While Kim does address her relationship with SNL star Pete Davidson, it looks like he won't be a part of the series. He did, however, join Kim during the premiere of the show. Even though Davidson will not be featured, Kim has mentioned that she will let people know about what's going on between them. “You’ll just have to see, but I’m always open and honest and I’ll never not be, so you’ll definitely get that honesty and openness when it comes to the relationship that I’m in,” she said, as reported by Complex. “I definitely explain how we met and who reached out to who and how it happened and all the details that everyone wants to know. I’m definitely open to talking, and I definitely explain it.” she added.
Socialite Larsa Pippen and Kim's former best friend will not be a part of the upcoming series either. While the two were close, Page Six reports that Pippen was too close to the Kim and Kanye divorce situation, causing her own friendship to crumble. “I took a beating because I was the friend that was basically there and saw everything. And that basically was the demise of our relationship,” Pippen said, as reported by Page Six. “I knew too much, I was a problem, and so, whatever. That’s kind of what happened,” she added.
NBA star Devin Booker, who has been dating Kendall, might not be a part of the show, although his exact status remains unknown. The pair have been dating for two years and have kept their relationship under wraps for the most part. And it looks like they intend on keeping it that way.
