The long-running reality series Keeping Up With the Kardashians is taking its final bow, with the current season set to be its last. But that doesn’t mean the Kardashian-Jenners are gone entirely, as the family inked a multi-year deal with Hulu for their next new show. Not many specifics have come out about the who or what the project entails, but rumors are circulating that Kourtney Kardashian’s boyfriend Travis Barker will be part of the series.
Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker have only been dating since January and only made the relationship Instagram official back a few months ago. Yet sources for US Weekly claim that not only will Travis Barker feature in the Kardashians’ new show but his two kids as well.
Kris Jenner and all of her daughters have signed onto the new show that will provide “global content.” And if it follows the blueprint of Keeping Up With the Kardashians as a family affair, it’s not a stretch of the imagination that Kourtney Kardashian’s new romance will be included. Travis Barker is certainly not a stranger to reality TV, as he had his own run on MTV’s Meet the Barkers. Although, it hasn’t been made clear how Kourtney Kardashian will participate. In the past, she has been very frank that filming Keeping Up With the Kardashians was hard for her to handle and, in the recent season, the family was even seen weirdly pushing her back into the arms of ex Scott Disick.
It sounds like it could only get more difficult with this new show. Supposedly, it will showcase the struggles between Travis Barker’s kids and his ex-wife, Shanna Moakler, that have been unfolding in the public eye. Moakler not only accused Barker of cheating on her with Kim Kardashian back in the day but also that Kourtney Kardashian “destroyed” her relationship with her kids. The Kardashian-Jenners have allegedly been doting on the Barker kids as they film the new series. Moakler said previously to US Weekly:
The Kardashians are buying my kids Prada every other day. They’re going on lavish trips. They’re doing all these things, which is fine. I think it’s nice that they’re being kind to my kids. I want that for my children.
As it stands, Travis Barker’s two teenagers have publicly denied that anyone has caused a rift in their relationship with their mother, stating she never really had a strong presence in their lives. On the other side of the accusations, Kim Kardashian vehemently denied hooking up with Barker.
The drama surrounding Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker’s romance would make for good storylines on reality TV. It would be equally as interesting to see if Kardashian will be just as open with PDA and proclamations of love on the new show as the two are on social media. As for any hints about what the new show will focus on, Kris Jenner only teased recently at a Disney Upfronts presentation:
This is the next chapter. In the new show, you’ll see us evolving as a family, fans want us to be who we are and since moment one, they’ve been emotionally invested in our show just like we are. The fans will love seeing us continue the journey. I can’t say much about what’s coming but spoiler, we’re going to look fabulous and everyone’s going to watch.
So the family is still using the royal “we” in reference to who will be part of the new show. The bit about “going to look fabulous” is just as vague but possibly referencing fashion of some kind? Who knows with the Kardashians and their content.
