After 14 years of drama, fashion and family, Keeping Up with the Kardashians, the television series that made Kim Kardashian and her siblings household names, took its final bow on Thursday with hugs, tears and gratitude.
"I have no regrets. This was, like, the best decade and a half of my life," Kim Kardashian said in the finale.
"I feel like the luckiest girl in the entire world that I get to work with my family every single day," she added. "This is who I am. This show made who we are, and I'll never take that for granted."
The series ended with hugs for the TV crew that has followed the wealthy family in its most intimate moments, and the burial of a time capsule.
Matriarch Kris Jenner buried the certificate she got when she trademarked the word "momager" in 2017 for managing the family's interests, while her daughter Kylie Jenner, 23, contributed the lip gloss kits that made her a billionaire.
However, the extended family from California has no plans to step back. They will return for a two-part reunion on June 17 and 20, and have a deal for a new series on streaming platform Hulu that is expected to launch later in 2021.
It also launched the beauty and fashion empires of Kim Kardashian and her half-sister Kylie, Kendall Jenner's modeling career, spinoff shows for Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian and a social media presence in which Kim now counts some 227 million Instagram followers.
The family announced last September that they would end the show but gave no reasons for the decision.
