Keeping Up With the Kardashians is officially back in action, following a brief production break amid Lamar Odom's hospitalization after he was found unresponsive in a Nevada brothel a week ago, a production source confirmed to ET on Thursday.

The source tells ET that show cameras were rolling at Kim Kardashian's 35th birthday bash on Wednesday. Kim's husband, Kanye West, threw a surprise party for the reality TV star at the Cinépolis Luxury-Westlake Village cinema in Thousand Oaks, California.

According to the source, KUWTK producers are in the early stages of determining how Lamar -- who officially called off his divorce from Khloe Kardashian on Wednesday -- will be worked into the storyline, and whether or not fans will get to see any of it played out at the end of season 11.

ET previously reported that, contrary to some reports, the reality TV series was not shooting during Lamar's medical crisis. The reality show was set to resume filming at the end of October.

"Reports that the show is filming are inaccurate and hurtful to the family," the source told ET at the time.

According to the source, there were never cameras around any of the Kardashians or Jenners during their visits to Las Vegas to see Lamar. There were no cameras inside the Intensive Care Unit at Sunrise Hospital where he was originally hospitalized, and there will be no cameras inside Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, where the 35-year-old former basketball star is currently recovering, the source added. 

Lamar was transported from Las Vegas to Los Angeles via a helicopter and private jet on Monday, so he could be closer to family and friends. Since his arrival, the athlete has been showing positive signs of recovery, including talking more, his family said in a statement to ET.

"To our overwhelming delight, Lamar's courageous improvement continues on the incline in Los Angeles," the statement reads. "He is beginning to gradually flourish both mentally and physically. His use of speech has increased and he's more cognitively responsive. His medical team has executed an aggressive therapy regimen to aid in his progress."
