What is reality television without the Kardashian-Jenner family? That’s a question I never want to learn the answer to — and although we had a brief scare about a year ago — it doesn’t seem like we’ll be faced with that predicament any time in the near future.

After a 20-season run of Keeping Up With the Kardashians on the E! Network, the Kar-Jenners announced their new show on Hulu, titled The Kardashians. The glossy revamp of the beloved original series premiered its first season on April 14, delivering 10 episodes full of all the juicy drama that went down in the lives of Kris, Kourtney, Kim, Khloé, Kendall, and Kylie in recent months. Kim hosted Saturday Night Live and opened up about the beginnings of her relationship with Pete Davidson — um, did anyone else catch that mid-credit scene in the finale!? — Kourtney and her now-husband (!) Travis Barker are trying for a baby, and by the final episode, Khloé has discovered Tristan Thompson’s paternity scandal.

Season 2 of The Kardashians is definitely happening, as Hulu ordered 40 episodes of the reality series, per Variety. While we’re unsure if that means we’ll be getting four 10-episode installments, or fewer seasons with more episodes, we know for sure that more content is coming. So when will season 2 premiere? Here, we break down everything we know so far about season 2 of The Kardashians.

When will season 2 be released on Hulu?

While we’re not sure exactly when season 2 of The Kardashians will debut, executive producer Danielle King revealed on Deadlines “Crew Call with Anthony D’Alessandro” podcast that it’s less than a year away.

“You won’t have to wait another year,” she said.

“Oh no no no,” Kris Jenner — who also appeared on the podcast — added. This is great news, dolls.

What drama will unfold in season 2?

On “Crew Call,” Danielle King revealed that not all of season 2 has been shot yet.

“Our goal is to be done shooting by the end of June,” she shared.

The season 1 finale chronicled the beginning of the Tristan Thompson paternity scandal, aka when it initially broke in the news and when the entire family found out. We can bet that we’ll see more of this unravel in the second season, especially since Khloé and Tristan continue to co-parent their daughter, True.

ICYMI, Kourtney and Travis held three (!) wedding ceremonies over the past few months. During “Crew Call,” King confirmed that the series will cover the lavish seaside affair in Italy, but said viewers “will have to tune in” to know how much of the ceremony was filmed.

Kylie also delivered her baby boy in February, so we might see some footage surrounding the new addition to the fam.

Soooo will Pete Davidson be in season 2?

This is also a little unclear. Pete has obviously been a major part of Kim’s life in recent months, and although he was mentioned and referenced a number of times, he not once appeared on-camera in the series’ first 10 episodes. However, King teased that we could see Pete in their Met Gala coverage, considering he attended the coveted event with Kim.

But all in all, King emphasized that it’s Pete’s decision to appear in the series or not.

“The show is about our core cast, it’s about this family. So if there are significant others, it’s really up to them,” she told “Crew Call.” “Kim never tried to persuade Pete. It’s always up to the significant other, or the peripheral person that they’re dealing with. If they want to join in on the fun, more power to them. We’re happy to cover that. But if they don’t, you know, Pete’s a high-profile person, he’s an actor. Kim has said before, when the cameras are rolling for him, it means performance time. When the cameras are rolling for this family, it’s time to get real. So it’s a different muscle that they’ve worked and he’s worked,” King added.

“But he’s legitimately part of Kim’s life, and so for those bigger moments, like when they went to the Met ball, obviously Pete was with her and he’s not like a crazy person, ‘Get the cameras away from me.’ He joins in,” she added. “Whether or not we have in-depth storylines with him, that’s entirely up to him.” 👀
