It looks like we may be “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” at least through 2019, as the reality television queens, Kris Jenner, Kourtney Kardashian, Kim Kardashian-West, Kourtney Kardashian, Kendall Jenner, and Kylie Jennerhave just signed a $150 million dollar deal with E! Network for five more seasons of their hit reality series!

The contract is a package deal … E! is paying for all services rendered by the Kardashians. It’s a bump from their 2015 contract, in which they got $20 mil a cycle for 5 cycles — total $100 mil.

Our sources say the Kardashian deal is structured so that the family decides how to split up the money amongst themselves.

The deal takes the Kardashians into 2019.

We are definitely not surprised at E!’s decision to renew a more lucrative contract with the Kardashian-Jenner Clan. The family–and their continuous drama–have put the network on the map for more than a decade now. Honestly, we cannot think of any other show on E! we clamor to see besides there. Wait, there is Royals…

There is no word if Rob Kardashian will be appearing, but if is not then we are sure he is not getting a cut meaning his daughter’s mother, Blac Chyna, will not be either. Sorry, sis!

What do you guys think of having five more cycles of Keeping Up With The Kardashians? Are you here for it or not? Sound off in the comments section below!

Comedy superstar and multiple Emmy® nominee Tracy Morgan returns to television with TBS starring in The Last O.G., a new comedy series that he executive produces alongside creator and executive producer Jordan Peele. Beginning April 3, episodes will air Tuesdays at 10:30 p.m. (ET/PT).

The Last O.G. centers on Tray (Morgan), an ex-con shocked to see just how much the world has changed when he is released from prison for on good behavior after a 15-year stint. Returning to his newly gentrified Brooklyn neighborhood, he discovers that his former girlfriend, Shay (played by emerging, breakout star actress and comedian Tiffany Haddish), has married an affable, successful white man (Ryan Gaul) who is helping raise the twins (Taylor Mosby & Dante Hoagland) Tray never knew existed. Wanting nothing more than to connect with his kids, but having neither the money to support them nor himself, Tray falls back on the skills he learned in prison to make ends meet while treading on unfamiliar territory.

The Last O.G. also stars Cedric the Entertainer as the head of the halfway house where Tray is staying, and Allen Maldonado as Tray’s cousin Bobby, who helps him adjust to life on the outside. Executive-producing with Morgan and Peele are Eric Tannenbaum, Kim Tannenbaum, John Carcieri and Joel Zadak of Principato Young.
