Rob and Kourtney Kardashian's Future on Reality TV: Here's What We Know

Kris Jenner, Kim, Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian discuss what to expect from 'The Kardashians.'

The Kardashian-Jenner family is returning to reality TV, and while fans have come to know and love them from Keeping Up With the Kardashians, things are going to change when The Kardashians hits Hulu.

The famous family spoke about their news series with Variety, and shared who will and won't be on air when the show starts streaming.

According to the outlet, Caitlyn Jenner will not appear in the Hulu series, and Rob Kardashian won't be a main cast member either, though he may appear in a cameo.

While Rob was on Keeping Up With the Kardashians often in its early days and even starred in his own 2016 spinoff, Rob & Chyna, which chronicled his relationship with Blac Chyna, he's largely stayed out of the limelight in recent years, instead opting to focus on his mental and physical health and his daughter, Dream.

Kourtney Kardashian's future on the series isn't as certain either, with the newly engaged mother of three telling Variety that KUWTK became a "really toxic place for me." While she attributes being burnt out to wanting to step away from the show, Kourtney maintains that she's not the reason the long-running series came to an end after its 20th season.

"I think that we were all ready to move on to something else," Kourtney says.

The Hulu series, described as having "more documentary style" footage, will likely be Kourtney's last foray into the reality TV world.

"I see myself living in another city," she says of leaving her town outside Los Angeles. "I don’t think I see myself filming on a show in five years. I would probably envision myself, like, just living."

Kourtney and Rob's sister, Kim Kardashian, also shares whether she'll ever step away from the cameras. “Sometimes I think, ‘Oh, my God, the dream. I can stop being Kim K. in 10 years,’” she muses. However, when asked if she truly considers a life away from reality TV, she laughs, admitting, “No, I don’t.”

While the show is set to cover uncomfortable topics like Kim's divorce from Kanye "Ye" West and Tristan Thompson's infidelity, one aspect of the new show that the family is excited about, is the quick turn around that comes with airing on a streaming service versus a cable network. (Their original series, Keeping Up With the Kardashians, aired on E!).

"We wanted it to be as current as possible," Kim explains. "We hated how long we had to wait. That was like the death of us, because once we got over something, we had to rehash it all over again."

"We wanted to be with someone that’s tech forward, so we’re with the times," Khloe Kardashian adds of Hulu. "For us to be still on cable was just not so on brand for us."

Hulu will launch The Kardashians' first two seasons -- 40 episodes -- starting April 14.
